BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

One of Southeastern's best seasons came to an end in the Baton Rouge Regional, Sunday, with a 9-5 loss to Rice. The Lions (37-21) ended regional play with a 1-2 record. SLU made an NCAA regional for the third time in four years, but is yet to progress to an NCAA super regional. 

"It's my senior year. It might be my last game I'll ever play. It hurts for every guy that was on our team this year. It broke everybody down as soon as we ended the game," said right fielder Ryan Byers.

"They made a point to win a lot of ball games. They come in and don't fear anybody. We're supposed to be here. That's not a fluke. We're supposed to be here every year, and we're going to continue to be here every year," said shortstop Brennan Breaud.

Taylor Schwaner went 2-for-3 at the plate for SLU, with a two-run homer. Derrick Mount finished 2-for-4, with an RBI.

The Lions beat Rice on Friday in their regional opener, but lost back-to-games to LSU and Rice to get eliminated.

    Throughout the summer and into training camp Ed Orgeron said if the season started today, Danny Etling would be his starting quarterback. Tuesday night, Coach O went a step further naming Etling the starter against BYU. “Sunday, we watched all of the tape, and we made the decision to announce Danny as our starting quarterback.

    A presser hasn't gone by without LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron talking up true freshman Myles Brennan. The St. Stanislaus alum is turning heads with his rocket arm, and accuracy with wide receivers. Offensive coordinator Matt Canada also is a big fan of Brennan, and thinks things will only get better for the backup as the 2017 season progresses. "Myles has gotten better every week. We had a half-scrimmage that first week, really got after it the second week. First time in Tiger Stad...more>>

    The Saints have hit the halfway mark of the preseason, and the final 53 man roster is getting clearer. Here's my view at this point in time.  QB (2) Drew Brees Chase Daniel There is no reason for the Saints to keep more than two quarterbacks. It’s obvious who those quarterbacks should be. RB (4) Mark Ingram Adrian Peterson Alvin Kamara Daniel Lasco No change here. FB (1) John Kuhn Once again, easy call. WR (5)  Willie Snead Michael Thomas Ted G...more>>
