    Awesome!! People sometimes wonder where LSU gets this "elite" mentality and why we feel like we have tradition... Here you go. A tradition of winning.

    Seriously, I've had people ask me around the country how we became so crazed as a fan base so fast. I just look at them like they're stupid and move on.

    EDIT: I should mention that I have this thread bookmarked on my iPhone and show it to people when it comes up in conversation. Everyone loves the fireworks, haha!

    Anyone that says LSU doesn't have rich history and tradition is uninformed and has no business commenting on college football.

    Billy Cannon and the '58-'59 Fightin' Tigers must be proud. The '58-'59 Fightin' Tigers were ranked #1 in the nation for 14 weeks straight. That is the longest streak at #1 in SEC history, better than even Alabama (whose best streak was 7 weeks at #1, under Bear Bryant) or Tennessee (whose best streak was 6 weeks at #1, under Fulmer).

    Not even programs like Notre Dame (their record is 12 straight weeks at #1), Michigan (their record is 8 straight weeks at #1), or Texas (their record is 9 straight weeks at #1) have been able to field a team that was ranked at #1 in the nation for as long as the '58-59 Fightin' Tigers.

    We are still wearing the same uniforms they wore, except we moved the numbers on the shoulders to below the stripes, and we changed the logo on the side of our helmets.
