I spent too many Saturdays in Tiger Stadium or sitting in front of the radio listening to Ace Ferguson not to retain fondness for the Bayou Bengals. But almost 39 years in Arkansas counts for something. I'm reminded of 2007, when I watched the epic thriller in Baton Rouge from a barstool in an Irish tavern in New York city. It was a shame anyone had to lose. And I don't remember being sorry when LSU's game-tying two-point conversion try failed in the third overtime.
