LSU's Dorsey wins Rotary Lombardi Award
DT beats out three others, receives trophy at Hilton Americas


By MOISEKAPENDA BOWER
Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle

This afternoon, LSU senior defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year. Tonight, Dorsey earned an honor that came with something tangible.


Dorsey was named the 38th Rotary Lombardi Award winner at the Hilton Americas, and with that distinction came the distinctive 40-pound block of Texas pink granite given annually to the nation's outstanding college lineman. Dorsey is the first LSU player to claim the award, and just the second LSU finalist. End Ron Estay was a finalist in 1971.


"It's special because it's saying you're the best at what you do," Dorsey said. "You come out and try to play hard all the time and just help your team win, but when you can get recognized for your individual efforts with an award like this ... it's a real honor."


Through 13 games, Dorsey ranks third on LSU in tackles with 64, and has added six sacks, 11½ tackles for losses, four quarterback hurries, and four passes defended. The second-ranked Tigers (11-2) will face No. 1 Ohio State (11-1) in the BCS title game on Jan. 7 in New Orleans.


Dorsey would have been a first-round selection had he declared for the 2007 NFL draft. Instead, he returned for his senior season, picked up the Nagurski Trophy (nation's top defensive player) and the Lombardi Award, and has LSU poised to win a national title.


"Without a doubt," Dorsey said of his decision to complete his eligibility being validated. "My team is in the biggest game, the championship game, (and) I've had a great season. It just solidifies it. I feel like I made the right decision, and I'm just happy I came back."


Ohio State junior linebacker James Laurinaitis, Michigan senior offensive tackle Jake Long, and Virginia senior defensive end Chris Long were Lombardi Award finalists.


Dorsey is a finalist for three additional national awards: the Outland (premier interior lineman), Lott (defensive player of the year), and Bednarik (top defensive player).

big glen is making LSU proud :applause:

Yeah I thought he had a good chance to get him, from what i heard LSU wasnt recruiting him hard We did pick up Chris Jackson this week, maybe that had something to do with it....

Far as your defense goes unless everybody go to the draft, i dont see you guys falling no time soon. You guys are stacked, and i heard 2009 Seniors in your state is stacked as well with talent. You dont mind if we help ourselves do you??? :D

yea yall can help yourselves to the players that we dont want the hang up i have about our defense next year is the fact that we have alot of tough road games next year. the secondary is a concern. we are losing some talent back there to the draft this year. the lb's are another concern losing ali highsmith is gonna be a blow he is the best lb we have along with beckwith.

so while i dont doubt we will probably have one of the best offenses next season, our defense leaves a little to be desired. 08 might be a little of a retooling year. im not gonna say rebuilding cuz we have enough talent to contend for the SEC again but 09' is the year we move to the head of the pack for a shot at the national title.

this football sh*t is serious business down here

NEW ORLEANS -- Justice can wait until after the LSU game.

A state judge near the home of the Tigers has agreed to postpone a trial scheduled to start on the same day LSU plays Ohio State in the BCS national championship game.

Stephen Babcock, an attorney defending Imperial Casualty Insurance Co. in a lawsuit over a car crash, requested the delay because he has tickets to the Jan. 7 game at the Superdome in New Orleans. He and other LSU fans have rented out the second floor of a Bourbon Street bar for a pre-game tailgate party.

In his written request for a new trial date, Babcock refers to Ohio State as "Slowhio" ("due to their perceived lack of speed on both sides of the ball") and notes that Allstate, sponsors of the Sugar Bowl, are not a party in the insurance case.

"All counsel to this matter unequivocally agree that the presence of LSU in the aforementioned contest of pigskin skill unquestionably constitutes good grounds therefor," Babcock wrote. "In fact we have been unable through much imagination and hypothetical scenarios to think of a better reason."

Babcock, whose law office is in Baton Rouge, said lawyers for the plaintiff in the case also have tickets to the game.

"We might disagree on the merits of the case, but everyone was in agreement on this, for sure," he said during an interview Friday.

That includes West Baton Rouge Parish District Judge Alvin Batiste, who agreed Thursday to postpone the trial but didn't immediately set a new date. Babcock said he doesn't know if Batiste is an LSU fan, "but most people around here are."

Louisiana already has a legal precedent for football trumping a trial date. In January, a judge agreed to postpone a trial due to a conflict with last season's NFC championship game between the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears.

LSU Notes: Hester has turned into Tigers' rock star
December 28, 2007
By Glenn Guilbeau


BATON ROUGE — The LSU football team has a rock star. His name is Jacob Hester, who now knows a little about what it was like being one of his favorite singers, Elvis Presley.

For LSU's last seven games, Hester has had police escorts from the field to the locker room and from the locker room to his car or team bus after games.


"People wanting autographs," Hester said after practice Thursday. "It all started after the Florida game. I was signing autographs outside the locker room for almost two hours. Finally, some police came up and said, 'We're taking you to your car.'"

Hester, a senior from Evangel, moved into rock star status in that nationally televised Florida game when he gained 106 yards on 23 carries and scored the winning touchdown on a 2-yard run with 1:09 to play in a 28-24 victory. Hester also converted three fourth-and-1 plays in that game.

"It just kept happening after every game after that," Hester said. "Even after the Ole Miss game over there. But it's not a bad problem to have."

FLYNN THROWING HARD: Quarterback Matt Flynn did not throw much during the Tigers' last practice before Christmas on Dec. 23, but he threw plenty on Thursday, LSU coach Les Miles said.

Miles also downplayed a local television report from last week that Flynn was struggling to recover from his right, throwing shoulder injury that sidelined him for the Southeastern Conference Championship Game.

Asked if Flynn was at 100 percent, Miles said, "Yeah. He threw several balls today that were thrown as well as any ball he's thrown."

HEALTHY TEAM: Miles said no one missed Thursday's practice because of an injury. The only players spotted at the end of the closed practice in a green jersey for no contact were the quarterbacks, who are always held out of contact.

"Everybody was there today," Miles said. "I liked how the practice went. I like where it's headed."

Asked specifically about Flynn (shoulder), tailback/returner Trindon Holliday (ankles) and tailback Keiland Williams (knee), Miles said, "All three practiced full practices and played well."

Advocate sportswriter
Published: Dec 28, 2007

Before the season began, Glenn Dorsey was already everybody’s All-American.

Craig Steltz? The senior safety with the flowing blonde locks, the one many call LSU’s “surfer dude” though he hails from that surfing capital of Kenner was simply Jessie Daniels’ replacement at strong safety.

Turns out, Steltz was the 2007 Tigers’ version of free safety LaRon Landry, a first-round draft pick of the Washington Redskins.

Who would have guessed that LSU would have an All-American safety two seasons in a row? But here was Steltz, leading the Tigers with 97 tackles this season and ranking as one of the nation’s leaders with six interceptions, making All-American team after All-American team.

He earned honors from six in all — a.ssociated Press, Walter Camp, ESPN, CBSsports.com, CNNSI.com and Rivals. com — and was one of three finalists for the Jim Thorpe Award given annually to the nation’s best defensive back.

In a way, the fast-talking, hard-hitting Steltz admitted he’s been taken aback by all the accolades.

“There’s been a lot of hard work going in it, through the summer and in camp,” Steltz said. “It’s just going out there and playing. My dad always says, ‘Go out there and have fun, and don’t worry about anything else.’

“It’s been a blast. It’s something I’ve done all year. Good things happen when you’re having fun.”

Steltz lost out on the Thorpe Award, which went to Arizona cornerback Antoine Cason. But Steltz has the greater thrill of playing for the BCS national championship in his hometown of New Orleans, Jan. 7 against Ohio State.

“It can’t be any better,” Steltz said. “Somebody was asking me, ‘Would you like to have gone undefeated?’ Our goal is still the same. Maybe it was the best thing for us. We faced a lot of adversity and it shows how we can bounce back. Not a lot of teams could come back from two triple-overtime losses.”

At 11-2, No. 2-ranked LSU isn’t perfect. Neither is No. 1 Ohio State (11-1).

But it could be the perfect ending for Steltz. When asked if what his greatest thrill as a college player has been, Steltz said he hopes it hasn’t come yet.

“I’m hoping it’ll happen on Jan. 7,” he said. “I’ve had an opportunity play in a lot of big games with a bunch of great guys, but I’m hoping we’ll come out with a victory down in New Orleans.”

Steltz’s trademark has been hard hits. Bone-jarring, filling-loosening body blows that frequently separate runner or receiver from the ball they are trying to possess.

“He plays safety but it’s also like playing linebacker because he has to come into the box a lot,” linebacker Ali Highsmith said. “There’s never any doubt in my mind him coming in and missing a tackle. He comes in, lays a hit and — Boom! — he does it. It may be amazing to ya’ll, but we say, ‘There goes Steltz again.’ ”

LSU wide receiver Early Doucet has taken some of those shots in spring practice.

“I got hit a few times by him and I got a slight headache,” he said. “I can imagine those (opposing) guys getting hit by him. I wouldn’t imagine they’d want to get hit by him again.”

Steltz is hoping to continue a legacy started by his older brother Kevin, a starting fullback for three years who was a part of LSU’s 2003 BCS championship team.

“He’s even happier for us to go back,” Steltz said. “As a brother, he wants me to experience what he did.”

He won't ban team from N.O. hot spots

Friday, December 28, 2007 By Kyle Whitfield

BATON ROUGE -- -- When LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey thinks about his past experiences in New Orleans, all he can do is laugh.

"I enjoy the whole New Orleans thing and Bourbon Street -- just the whole jazz feeling," Dorsey said with a huge smile. "I try to soak it in. I enjoyed last year (against Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl), and I didn't mind coming back. A lot of people say New Orleans is so close to home. I'll go to New Orleans right now."

Once the team arrives in the city Wednesday, police officers will brief the players on the areas that are safe to visit and enjoy.

And then they're off.

LSU Coach Les Miles hasn't banned specific venues in the past, and many players said they're thankful Miles has enough faith in them to make their own decisions. Other teams, such as Georgia, were not given that freedom and were told outright they were not allowed to visit certain places in New Orleans, such as the casinos.

That mandate from Georgia Coach Mark Richt could have posed a conflict for LSU running back Jacob Hester.

"I like going to the casino, tell you the truth." Hester said. "I'm not really a kind of guy who goes out to bars or does the whole drinking thing. So if I do go out, that's about the only thing I do."

Hester said the magnitude of the Jan. 7 BCS national championship game against Ohio State likely will make him think twice about spending time gambling, though. But the bigger picture, he said, is Miles' trust in the maturity of the Tigers.

"It shows what kind of character we have on the team," Hester said. "We've earned his trust. It's not just something that's been given. It's a good feeling to have."

Before the team heads out for its first night, Miles lays some ground rules and recommends places the players should avoid. But most of the judgment is left to his team, offensive lineman Ciron Black said.

"He has a lot of stipulations and a lot of rules," Black said. "He really expects us to stay out of trouble, because he knows what's at stake. He's a great coach, but at the same time, he's a great person. He has a lot of respect for us. He talks to us and knows what kind of players we are. We know him on a personal level as well as a coaching level."

For most players, this will be their third trip to the city as a team. LSU defeated Notre Dame 41-14 last season in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. They also beat Tulane 34-9 on Sept. 29 at the Superdome.

"We'll have curfews; I certainly want them to tour and see things," Miles said. "Their curfews will be no later than I think the first night . . . 1 (a.m.) and 12 (a.m.) from that point forward."

Many players, such as LSU safety Craig Steltz, said they appreciate Miles' trust, and some are even hoping the big city atmosphere will knock the Buckeyes off track.

"I'm sure they'll enjoy it," he said. "Hopefully they'll have a little too much fun. I hope they have a couple extra nights down there."

LSU


Les Miles’ first win at his first head coaching job came Sept. 8, 2001 — Oklahoma State 30, Louisiana Tech 23. Miles is 61-27 at Okie State and LSU.

The last time LSU defeated a No. 1-ranked team was in 1997’s 28-21 win over Florida in Tiger Stadium.

Miles’ first win at LSU was the Hurricane Katrina-moved “home” game at Arizona State, a 35-31 last-minute victory.

The last lost fumble by an LSU running back was also the first lost fumble by a running back this season: Trindon Holliday fumbled in the third quarter against Tennessee in the SEC Championship Game.

LSU is first on the most-wins list in the SEC since 2001. LSU is 73-17 since the turn of the century.

The last time senior running back Jacob Hester lost a fumble was in the first carry in his first game of his freshman season, 342 carries ago.

Colt David is first in LSU’s record books for single season field goals with 25, in single-season scoring with 139 points and first in single-season PATs with 58.

LSU’s last two-time All-America was cornerback Corey Webster (2003-04)
LSU’s 2007 first-team All-SEC players are defensive end Glenn Dorsey, linebacker Darry Beckwith, kicker Colt David, punter Patrick Fisher, linebacker Ali Highsmith, cornerback Chevis Jackson, offensive guard Herman Johnson and safety Craig Steltz.

OHIO STATE


Jim Tressel’s first head coaching win came in Youngstown State’s 30-6 victory over Tennessee Tech, Oct. 11, 1986.

In their last game, the Buckeyes whipped arch-rival Michigan 14-3 and, in miserable weather conditions, outgained the Wolverines 279-91 yards.

Tressel’s first win at Ohio State came over Akron (28-14) on Sept. 8, 2001. It was his 136th career coaching win.

The last time Ohio State didn’t punt in a game was Oct. 27 this year in a 37-17 win over Penn State.

The last time the Buckeyes had three interceptions was Oct. 28, 2006 against Minnesota.

In his first season at Ohio State, Tressel had three first-team All Big 10 selections — center LeCharles Bentley, safety Mike Doss and offensive tackle Tyson Walter.

The last time Ohio State returned a kickoff for a TD was in the most recent BCS Championship Game, a 41-14 loss to Florida. Ted Ginn Jr. returned the opening kickoff 93 yards.

The first two-time All-America in Tressel’s OSU years was A.J. Hawk, who was a three-time (2003-05) All-Big 10 linebacker.
Ohio State’s first-team All-Big Ten players this year are linebacker James Laurinaitis, defensive end Vernon Gholston, quarterback Todd Boeckman, offensive tackle Kirk Barton, running back “Beanie” Wells and cornerback Malcolm Jenkins.
