Abstract:

"In The Fighting Tigers, 1993-2008, award-winning sportswriter Scott Rabalais chronicles the Louisiana State University Tigers' fantastic rise to the top of the college football universe, vividly detailing the victories and defeats, the coaches and the players, the tears and the titles of this sometimes frustrating, always fascinating period of LSU football.".

"Game by game, Rabalais recounts the tenures of the four head coaches who led the Tigers during these years - "Curley" Hallman, the strict taskmaster whose mounting losses created dissension and apathy among the Tiger faithful; Gerry DiNardo, the charismatic salesman whose efforts to "Bring Back the Magic" temporarily vaulted the Tigers again into the national polls; Nick Saban, the intense workhorse who steadily rebuilt the program and led the team to its first national championship in almost fifty years; and Les Miles, the engaging wildcard who finally emerged from Saban's shadow with a championship of his own.

Rabalais provides expert analysis of the 2004 and 2008 BCS national championship games and other postseason bowl games as well as the "ordinary" games that have crossed over into legendary status." "An appendix contains the vital statistics of LSD's entire football history. Individual and team records in every area, coaching records, All-Americans and Academic All-Americans, year-by-year results, top ten Tiger Stadium crowds, Tigers in pro-football - all of this and more will satisfy even the most hardcore LSD sports statistician. Peter Finney, venerable author of the three previous volumes of The Fighting Tigers, passes the official historian's torch to Rabalais in a compelling foreword that emphasizes the significance of the Tigers' recent run of success.".

"To many die-hard Tiger fans, LSU football is a religion all its own. With The Fighting Tigers, 1993-2008, Rabalais has written the next book of its bible."--BOOK JACKET.
