Here’s to a better week, Tigers fans. LSU must shift gears from Saturday’s 30-16 loss to Alabama and focus on this weekend’s opponent, Arkansas. There was still plenty of reaction to parse through, so let’s get to it.
Here are five things to know

- LSU’s report card came in and the grades were not very good.
