@lsu September 10


My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Louisiana State University

Location: Baton Rouge LA

Even thought the first NFL game was played on Thursday night today really the start of the 2017 NFL Season. For lots of Americans that means checking their fantasy football teams. If you play fantasy football I came across a fact from the 2016 season. The college with the most active players on NFL rosters was LSU.

LSU

LSU got its beginning in 1860  as a small all-male military school near Pineville, Louisiana. The first superintendent, William Tecumseh Sherman, and five faculty members, taught the first students. If you are a civil war buff you have to love that little nugget.

When Louisiana left the Union, Sherman resigned and moved to St. Louis, wanting nothing to do with the conflict. Though a conservative on slavery, he was a strong supporter of the Union. After the firing on Fort Sumter, he asked his brother, Senator John Sherman, to arrange a commission in the Army.

LSU has a great link about their history on the website.

Today LSU has an enrollment of in excess of 31,000 students and 225,000 alumni. You probably will see some of those alums playing in the NFL.
