09/12/2013 - Scouting the LSU running game: The Tigers have had so much success with their new-found passing game that the running game has faded to the background a bit during the first two games. But that doesn't mean LSU won't lean on the run going forward. Coach Les Miles' disciplining of Jeremy Hill for a second run-in with the law expired when Miles played Hill against UAB last week, so Hill figures to have a more prominent role from here on out. Alfred Blue remains the starter for now but look for he and Hill to split the position and Kenny Hilliard and Terrence Magee to fight for the remaining carries. - The Sports Xchange
