This year, the U.S. Army awarded LSU coastal experts, along with faculty from the University of Delaware, $9.3 million to help make military operations and infrastructure better prepared for weather hazards like flooding. Researchers from the LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency, our Center for River Studies, and the LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio will use ecological modeling and engineering to improve military installation resilience in the face of storm surge, extreme weather, and other hazards with the potential to affect operational capabilities.

You might think Venice, La., is the end of the word, but I see it as a battleground – a particularly fitting term since ground is exactly what we are losing. The effects of what happens here can impact pocketbooks as far away as Vivian in Caddo Parish.

“ . . . and while the bulk of our research focuses on the Louisiana Gulf Coast, the impact of our coastal research can be felt around the globe . . .”

LSU coastal researcher and MacArthur Genius Award Recipient Nancy Rabalais was inducted in the elite National Academy of Sciences this year, firmly cementing her expertise as among the top scientists in the United States. She leads the yearly research expedition into the Gulf to measure the size of the Dead Zone, a hypoxic region deplete of oxygen where no fish or other life canAnd,survive.while the bulk of our research focuses on the Louisiana Gulf Coast, the impact of our coastal research can be felt around the globe, as these challenges are not limited to our part of the world. We take our responsibility to secure Louisiana’s future very seriously, and our impact on the state’s coast remains at the forefront of our research mission now and forever.

Louisiana’s Unique and Valuable Coast

The National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration, or NOAA, has awarded our researchers, along with those in the Southern Climate Impact Planning Program, $5.4 million to study extreme weather impacts. As part of the grant, our scientists will study factors causing extreme rainfall and flooding events and will look at factors affecting heat-related illnesses.

That’s why “Coast” is one of LSU’s five priority areas in serving our state. Louisiana’s coastal ecosystems are among our state’s most unique and valuable natural resources. It is essential for national commerce and transportation via deep-water ports necessary for agricultural products shipping to markets around the world. The energy sector thrives in the coastal zone. LSU’s cyberdefense team is at work in the coast to monitor foreign threats and protect our energy and industrial infrastructure. And, coastal Louisiana is central to our cultural heritage as a state with its food, recreation, and joie de vivre. Let me share all the things we are doing to serve the coastal zone and protect everything we love from Venice to Vivian and everywhere in between.

Thank you for your support – past, present, and future. We couldn’t do it without you.


We enjoyed traveling coast to coast for the spring and early summer crawfish boils. It’s always a pleasure to visit with old friends and make new ones while enjoying Louisiana crawfish with all the trimmings! Your efforts to keep alumni and friends connected are deeply appreciated.

We were privileged to host the 2022 Association of Louisiana Alumni Executives Conference, which gave us the opportunity to share news, ideas, and information with our alumni colleagues across the state. See page 19.

Be sure to check out page six for the latest information about “What We Do.” And, that includes what you do with us and for us to support the University, its faculty and staff, alumni, friends, and current students – our future alumni.

President and CEO MESSAGE

We’ll be seeing many of you in the next few months at football games – on campus and at away games. We have planned exciting Traveling Tigers trips for the Florida State, Auburn, Florida, Arkansas, and Texas A&M games, so make your reservations now!

As we move into the final quarter of the year, I urge you to renew your membership in the Association and consider an additional donation to the Alumni Fund. Your financial support is vital to maintaining and enhancing our programs for alumni and friends, students, faculty, and the University.

“Your efforts to keep alumni and deeplyconnected...friendsareappreciated”

This issue’s cover story will surely stir readers’ memories. Memorial Tower is one of the oldest and most iconic structures on campus. The bronze tablets in the rotunda memorialize Louisiana soldiers who died in World War I, and over the years the Tower has housed military exhibits, offices and conference rooms, an information center, and an art museum. It is now the home of the William A. Brookshire LSU Military Museum, which will recognize and pay tribute to LSU’s rich military heritage and legacy for decades to come.

Hearty congratulations to our spring graduates, whose names appear in this issue. We hope you will take advantage of many opportunities – travel, sporting and social events, camaraderie, and connections – available to you through the LSU Alumni Association.

Forever LSU! Gordon President/CEOMonk Alumni Association

Raising Cane’s & Hurricanes – Faced with the high price of crawfish and transportation costs, East Tennessee Tigers improvised with a Raising Canes and Hurricanes party. “We served chicken from Raising Cane’s, along with boudin, red beans and rice, etc., and homemade Hurricanes. For entertainment, we watched LSU play Ole Miss in baseball – unfortunately a loss,” writes Jim Decker, chapter president.

Bon Air Celebration – The Victorian Days celebration, highlighted by the annual parade, featured the award-winning Central Virginia Chapter Mardi Gras float once again this year. “The crowds did not let the forecast of rain hinder their participation, as they yelled ‘Geaux Tigers,’” writes Sam Rosenthal, “and they were in awe of the beautiful, handcrafted Mardi Gras float as they raised their hands for Mardi Gras beads and trinkets along the parade route.”

Leach was an LSU coed sixty years ago. “ROTC was mandatory for young men; that Parade Ground was full of marching cadets,” she said. “Young women gathered to watch. All of this was in front of the bell tower. The Tower stood for LSU for us. We girls walked past it on the way to class every day.”

ICHARD LIPSEY, A FOUNDING member and past chair of Cadets of the Ole War Skule, remembers LSU’s Memorial Tower from his childhood. “I can remember my parents driving me to school at George Peabody Hall in 1944,” he said. Peabody housed University High School (now University Laboratory School) where Lipsey was in the first grade. “When we ran around campus, we always knew the way back by looking for the tall tower,” he said.

Memorial Tower, dedicated in 1926 as a memorial to the 1,447 Louisianans who died in World War I – and now home to the William A. Brookshire LSU Military Museum – officially reopened in April. Lipsey, co-chair of the LSU Military Excellence Campaign Fund Commission, spearheaded the restoration and renovation of the 175-foot structure with co-chair Laura Leach, past chair of the LSU Board of Supervisors.

The football stadium was built below the bluffs on the former 1,200acre Gartness Plantation so that its height wouldn’t overpower the twostory quadrangle buildings. Memorial Tower was built on the eastern end of the North Quadrangle, which forms a cross with the much larger South Quadrangle with the library at one end and Atkinson Hall at the other.

ROTC, Moore said, grew out of the Students’ Army Training Corps (SATC), which the War Department started in 1918, aided by an amendment to the Selective Service Act of 1917. Students who elected to become soldiers received help with their educational expenses and were assigned to participating universities. Assigning SATC detachments ended with the influenza epidemic of 1918, which took the lives of five LSU trainees.

Peter Soderbergh’s book Tower, Tablet and Tree: LSU and the American Legion, the Interwar Years, 1919-1941 details the fundraising for Memorial Tower done by the David J. Ewing Post No. 25 of the American Legion and an appropriation by the Legislature. The Tower was the property of the American Legion until the late 1940s, when ownership was transferred to the University.

With proposed plans by the Olmsted Brothers firm of Massachusetts, the LSU campus had the footprint of a first-class college campus. The Olmsted name calls to mind New York’s Central Park, New Orleans’ Audubon Park, and the college campuses of Stanford and Cornell. The firm designed 250 public parks and sixty college campuses.

iger Stadium, whose construction was hampered by cash problems and the failure of a construction company, saw its first game, against Tulane University, in an unfinished stadium in 1924. More than 17,000 people saw LSU’s victory on Thanksgiving Day.

The Olmsteds’ successor in LSU’s design, Theodore C. Link, acclaimed for his design of Union Station in St. Louis in 1894, employed the sixteenthcentury Northern Italian Renaissance style for buildings and provided a toney name for Memorial Tower – the

Reading Professor Emeritus Paul Hoffman’s book Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College, 1860-1919, former U.S. Rep. Henson Moore, who serves on the Memorial Tower committee and drilled on the Parade Ground, realized that LSU was one of the first ROTC schools in the country.


When Link took over design of the campus from the Olmsteds, his drawings included a campanile at the epicenter of campus, Soderbergh writes. As it happened, Link’s drawings were among his last. On Nov. 12, 1923, three days after the $85,000 contract to build a tower was set, Link died.

Numbers of LSU’s war dead vary slightly according to different sources. Thomas F. Ruffin writes in his book Under Stately Oaks: A Pictorial History of LSU, revised edition: Of the “1,500 Louisianans” who lost their lives during World War II, “the 30 (some records say 31) LSU students and alumni were each remembered with a live-oak planted in the Memorial Grove located on Highland Road just south of the Parade Ground.”

In March 1926, the University and the Legion held a joint service to remember Louisianans who died in the war. The Reveille "Memorial Edition" of June 6, 1919, cites twenty-five war dead from LSU, eight dying of flu. Classes let out at 2:30 p.m. with faculty and students convening in a grove of thirtyone oak saplings that we know today as Memorial Oak Grove. There was a brass plate for each of the saplings, including one for the Unknown Soldier. The grove is situated just south of the LSU Student Union.

was born in circumstances similar to the Coronavirus’ effect on the schools, restaurants and other businesses. An epidemic of Spanish Flu began at the end of World War I and affected an estimated 500 million people worldwide, about one-third of the world’s population. As many as fifty million people are thought to have died, including 675,000 Americans. By comparison, the war killed more than eight million soldiers and thirteen million civilians.

Jerry Campbell, Chair Ellen

As fledgling efforts to train college-educated officers were winding down with the end of the war and Americans’ preoccupation with the flu, the views of a Baton Rouge physician, H.S. Joseph, were published in The Reveille of Dec. 3, 1920. Joseph and others proposed a bell tower to remember the American soldiers of World War I. The memorial might take the form of a clock tower with chimes. “LSU students were thrilled by the magnificent simplicity of the concept,” Soderbergh writes, “and chanted ‘We want chimes!’”

Between 1922 and 1926, the American Legion’s relationship with LSU regarding a tower grew stronger. When the Legion held its fourth annual state convention in Baton Rouge in 1926, members were told that $92,000 was on deposit, earmarked for the structure.

The cost of Memorial Tower was $211,625.16. Estimates vary, but that’s the figure stated in the “Biennial Report of the President of Louisiana State University to the Governor and Members of the Legislature for 1932-34.” Caldwell Brothers of Baton Rouge was the contractor. Colonel Edward

Best information had it that the World War I flu started in Europe, but its origin wasn’t known. It’s thought the disease was among the ranks of European armies before hostilities. The strain of flu took the name Spanish because the press in neutral Spain reported extensively on the epidemic while warring nations censured the news.

Memorial Tower

Into the late 1950s, the University Museum displayed memorabilia of LSU’s early history. A World War I Museum, an information center, and conference rooms were in the tower’s wings. The rotunda was open. The structure, renovated in 1960 because of water damage, was rebuilt as it originally appeared and the base was remodeled to accommodate the Anglo-American Art Museum (LSU Museum of Art) in the wings and the Tower Information Center in the rotunda. The art museum moved to the Shaw Center in downtown Baton Rouge in 2005, and Cadets of the Ole War Skule established offices in Memorial Tower at that time.

The late Jerry Campbell, a restoration architect, used construction guidelines in the early architectural drawings to ensure the renovation reflected the interior design as presented in the original structure. Improvements include "smart windows," similar to transition sun lenses, designed to protect the artifacts inside. As the sun rises, the windows darken, allowing sunlight in, but not enough to damage the fragile artifacts on display.

“Memorial Tower is the showplace of the University, a destination for all who visit LSU and wish to experience LSU’s rich military history, to realize its present military impact, and to catch a glimpse of its future military influence as an institution of higher education that is committed to educating and training future military leaders for our nation,” Campbell said.

The renovation afforded an opportunity to add the names of World War I soldiers from Pointe Coupee Parish, said renovation committee member Harvey Cindy ad Chuck Credo were among those attending the grand opening festivities.

reopened largely through the efforts of Lipsey’s campaign to raise $13 million through private subscription with an assist from Gov. John Bel Edwards and the Legislature. “It would not have happened without Richard,” Moore said of Lipsey’s efforts. “It became a personal project for him.”

Schleider of New Orleans donated the original eighteen chimes in 1924 at a cost of $25,000. LSU spent $10,000 to have them installed. According to Soderbergh, six weeks later – on April 30, 1926 – LSU officials held the formal dedication of the “Greater University.” Since the previous summer, some buildings on the new campus had been available for use. Fall enrollment had been 1,712, and the cadet corps’ movement from its barracks in downtown Baton Rouge to its new home on April 11, 1926, signified LSU’s transition from the old to the new.

“LSU will do the maintenance and upkeep,” Lipsey said. “We pulled together a board for the museum to oversee and raise funds. We will have a full-time curator, part-time student help, and volunteer docents.”

The Memorial Tower renovation committee decided to display those names on tablets to be placed beneath the original ones. “There are three plaques beneath the larger plaques in the rotunda,” Gurie said. “One includes the names of Pointe Coupee Parish citizens – white and Black. The names of Black Louisianans who died in the war appear on the other three Committeeplaques.”member Jake Netterville, a member of LSU ROTC from 19561960, remembers Memorial Tower as “a showplace” as he and fellow cadets drilled before it on the Parade Ground. Cadets of the Old War Skule, whose members number about 300, may be credited with the renovation, he said, but Lipsey, a U.S. Army veteran, made it “LSUhappen.was founded as a military school and has a strong military program today,” Netterville said. “It is the responsibility of LSU and its military alumni to honor our rich military history and heritage.”

Soderbergh went with the names that may be counted on the tablets,Before1,474.1934, an unnamed Legionnaire discovered that the tablets represented just sixty-three of Louisiana’s sixty-four parishes. Somehow, Pointe Coupee Parish had been left out, Soderbergh writes. He comments in a footnote: “It appears also that the persons (Louisiana World War I veterans) so memorialized (on the Tower’s plaques) are Caucasians. No serious attempt was made to collect the names of Black males from Louisiana who died in service during the war. Had the ‘colored’ dead been incorporated into the lists the total number of names would have reached or exceeded 2,000.”

Baton Rouge Called. Garth Answered. The Earth Shook!

By John W. Grubb

Boots and chaps and cowboy hats, spurs, and a lot of gold were among the sights, not to mention a lot of beer, margaritas, and frosty adult beverages.

The air in Tiger Stadium on the last night in April was more energized than the night Ben Franklin “discovered” electricity as 102,000+ fans witnessed the once-in-a-lifetime event – Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, and their enormous group of musicians and crew taking Death Valley by storm. As reported in the Washington Post, smartphones and watches repeatedly displayed messages of decibel warnings reaching 95 as the night processed.

Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks took Death Valley by storm.

John Grubb, an LSU retiree and LSU Alumni Association vice president, is general manager/ operations manager of The Cook Hotel & Conference Center, but is a reporter/writer at heart and has been a contributor to this magazine since 1988.

Death Valley shook once again as fan noise triggered the seismograph on campus during the performance of Callin’ Baton Rouge.

LSU Alumni Magazine | Fall 2022 39

The Cook Hotel was home for the Garth road crew the week of the concert, having reserved the bulk of the hotel’s guest rooms eight months in advance. The eighty-foot-high stage – as tall as the White House – was built on a foundation of four pillars each forty feet square.

The enormous crowd sang along with Garth and even serenaded him with a multitude of voices belting out the tunes they’d come to love over the last three decades. Brooks’ first appearance in Baton Rouge was in 1991, and he visited again in 1998. Now approaching sixty, he showed no sign of fading and, in fact, took only one short break from the stage. He even performed duets alongside and as a backup singer for his wife, Trisha Yearwood, during her set.

A dazzling array of lights and special effects created the magic, and at times the stage was intentionally lit to resemble a large football, according to the stage manager as part of the “Stadium Tour” theme. They use four generator trucks to provide power on their tours, he said, and for the first time in his twenty years with the group, they had all four generators ramped up to red-line maximum for the Tiger Stadium performance. The noise at ground level was the loudest he could ever recall.

Dietzel Finds Three in ’58

The two specializing platoons accomplished Dietzel’s goal. It kept his best athletes, the White team, fresh for the fourth quarter, a key segment

This depth – manufactured by the LSU coaching staff – was never more obvious than in its final regular season game with arch-rival Tulane. Winning this game meant the Tigers would be declared national champions by the two wire services, the Associated Press and United Press International. LSU did that. But the Tigers’ use of the three platoons produced a one-sided, 62-0 wipeout, the biggest victory margin in the history of the series. The score produced a media firestorm, accusing Dietzel of “pouring it on.”

The Champs: Back row, Coach Paul Dietzel, Hart Bourque, Merle Schexnaildre, Gus Kinchen, Duane Leopard, Carroll Bergeron, Tommy Lott, John Langan, Emile Fournet, Mel Branch, Andy Bourgeois, Darryl Jenkins, and Henry Lee Roberts. Middle, Donnie Daye, Tommy Davis, Don Norwood, Jack Frayer, Manson Nelson, Mike Stupka, Bobby Greenwood, Al Dampier, Dave McCarty, Scotty McClaine, Durel Matherne, Don Purvis. Bottom, Johnny Robinson, J.W. Brodnax, Mickey Mangham, Bo Strange, Ed McCreedy, Max Fugler, Larry Kahlden, Lynn Leblanc, Billy Hendrix Warren Rabb, and Billy Cannon.

Dietzel was guilty of developing a system that kept his best players energized for the fourth quarter. LSU's best athletes, as intended, had fresh legs. It was the contrast between the two teams – one rested, one helpless – that engendered an outcry from the media. No person in the press box was in charge of substitution eligibility. That was a stat kept by the game officials. Had that information been made available to the media, they would have time to process it and possibly project what was about to take place.

As the search for depth evolved, the staff settled on three platoons – one to play both ways, one to concentrate on offense and one to concentrate on defense. By spending eighty percent of their practice time focusing on their assigned responsibility, the offensive and defensive platoons quickly excelled in their specialties. The offensive Go team, blossomed in a big win over Miami. The defensive Chinese Bandits not only kept Kentucky out of the end zone but also kept the Wildcats from getting a first down.

in SEC competition. It was obvious in wins over Kentucky, Florida, Ole Miss, Duke, and Mississippi State. LSU made big plays late in game.


46 LSU Alumni Magazine | Fall 2022

In searching for two teams in 1958, Paul Dietzel found three. And the three teams became one of the key factors in his developing the Tigers into a national champion. Dietzel was hoping to find two teams that could play effectively on both offense and defense but soon discovered this versatility was limited to just a few athletes beyond his eleven two-way starters.

Searching for Two Teams

eligible platoon for the Tigers was the White team – LSU’s best athletes. They were fresh, and Tulane was tired. “I was not going to use the Go Team on defense, or the Bandits on offense,” Dietzel said. “It would have been more humiliating if we had punted on first down in the fourth quarter.”

As soon as Purvis scored, everyone on the LSU bench knew the Go team could not re-enter the game. Apparently, other than the game officials, no one else knew. Not the 83,000 in attendance. And no one in the press box. “After Scooter’s touchdown,” McCarty said, “I remember telling the coaches, ‘We’re dead. We can’t go back in the game. We have already made two appearances this quarter.’”

By the end of three quarters, the LSU lead expanded to 27-0. But there was nothing to indicate a 35-point avalanche was imminent. Early in the fourth quarter the Go team was backed up on its end of the field and had to punt, using one of its appearances for the quarter. On the Go team’s return to the game, Purvis took a screen pass from Durel Matherne and reeled off a 54-yard scoring play. That was the Go team’s last eligible appearance in the finalMediaperiod.reports did not take into account that the Bandits and the Go Team quickly used their allotted appearances – two each – in the fourth quarter and were unable to return to the game.

The new substitution rule, which had game officials keeping track of a player’s appearances in each quarter, was not widely understood by the fans. Most of the media were not aware of the status of a player's eligibility to return to the game, or in LSU's case, a unit's eligibility. While game officials were on top of this information, the press boxes of that period and the stadium public address gave no updates on this vital piece of LSUinformation.dressed only thirty-six players that day, one of whom was not Darryl Jenkins, a safety who prided himself in “reading” the opposing quarterbacks intentions before the play developed. Just three platoons and a few spares. There was no fourth team.

Dietzel’s plan had been to build defensive pride at LSU, and a defensive platoon builds pride by shutting out an opponent – a Bandit goal. By playing offensive minutes, Bandit efficiency on defense could

The 6-0 halftime score did not suggest a runaway result, although the LSU players detected that Tulane was noticeably tired when they walked to the locker room at the intermission.

“It’s not the will to win that matters. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”

By stopping Tulane, the Bandits quickly used their two eligible appearances for the final quarter. That was the issue. Two of LSU’s three platoons were not eligible to play in most of the fourth quarter. The only

LSU Alumni Magazine | Fall 2022 47

“We could see that they were tired,” Go Team tackle Dave McCarty said. “We were talking about it in the locker room. We knew that we would be fresh and they would be tired in the second half. The coaches had us believing in the system. When the fourth quarter rolled around, we would have the advantage.”


LSU had many standouts in the game. Max Fugler was selected National Lineman of the Week for the second time that season. Johnny Robinson, scoring four touchdowns, was chosen as the National Back of the week. He scored one rushing TD, caught two touchdown passes, and returned a punt for a score. Cannon ran for three scores, the last a 45-yard gallop that was his longest run of the season. Bandit Mel Branch sacked Tulane’s quarterback, Richie Petittibon, the UPI’s All-SEC quarterback, three times in the game. Tommy Davis put on a memorable exhibition, punting the ball over the Tulane safety’s head on back-to-back plays.

In hindsight, some critics suggested that LSU could have used its defensive specialists on offense. Only a handful of the media in the Tulane Stadium press box were aware that Jenkins, who played quarterback when the Bandits made a rare appearance on offense, had sustained two broken vertebra against Mississippi State, and would miss the Tulane game and the Sugar Bowl. Purvis replaced him in the secondary against the Green Wave. In practice that week, Jenkins was replaced in brief Bandit offensive preparations by Henry Lee Roberts, also a Bandit safety, who hadn’t played quarterback since high school. A sub quarterback playing his first college game at that position would have been flirting with a fumble. Dietzel would not take that chance.

have been reduced. I don’t believe Dietzel ever considered playing the Bandits on offense. They were executing their specialty as well as they had all season. The Bandits gave up one touchdown all season in six conference games – to Mississippi State. Bama, Kentucky, Florida, Ole Miss, and Tulane didn’t score a TD against the Bandits.

48 LSU Alumni Magazine | Fall 2022

Dietzel was 2-0-1 in three previous meetings with the Greenies. He left Tulane Stadium two years before with a 7-6 victory courtesy of Jimmy Taylor, who scored a touchdown, kicked the extra point and provided several game-saving defensive plays.

Locker Room

The ’58 team was Dietzel's first winner at LSU. One-sided wins had been scarce. He beat Mississippi State 34-7 in 1955. Alabama fell 28-0 in 1957. The Miami, Kentucky, and Duke games were blowouts in 1958, but the LSU offense was outgained by Duke. Only five Blue Devil turnovers made that margin decisive. The Tigers had to fight for their lives the previous week against Mississippi State. There was

Tulane had upset Navy and Alabama in earlier games in the season. Their quarterback, Richie Pettibon, was the SEC total offense leader. After a near disaster in Jackson the week before, Dietzel was leaving nothing to chance. He made sure his team was prepared to stop Pettibon from reaching his goal of 1,000 yards. He papered the LSU locker room with a comment from a Tulane player: LSU WILL CHOKE! He had made the Tigers a dominant force in Louisiana recruiting and he wanted to keep it that way.

To hold the score down, LSU could have reduced the White team's offense to Red Brodnax up the middle. However, Red Brodnax played a major role in the Tigers’ win over Mississippi State the previous week. Brodnax made a fumble recovery at the Mississippi State 34 early in the third quarter, giving LSU its first opportunity to get back into the game. On first down, Brodnax made a 14-yard power thrust up the middle to put the ball at the 20 yard line, and on third down he bulled four yards for another first down at the 10. That set up Warren Rabb’s fourth down scoring pass to Hendrix, allowing Tommy Davis to boot the ball through the uprights and deliver a 7-6 victory.

If anyone had announced to the assembled media that only the White team was eligible to play in what remained of the fourth quarter, the hasty conclusions might not have descended upon the LSU coach after theThegame.Tigers were running past a tired and beaten team in the quarter. Virtually every play LSU ran resulted in a long gain. Robinson averaged 9.1 yards per carry; Rabb, 9.0; Cannon, 7.8; and Purvis had a 6.5. rushing average. Part of Dietzel’s plan was to make his team believe “the fourth quarter is ours.” On this day, the final game of the 1958 season, they owned the fourth quarter and the greenshirted opponent facing them. On this day, the fourth quarter unfolded more abruptly than Dietzel ever dreamed.

Or, the Tigers could have punted on first down. All of these options would have ultimately attracted criticism.

I don't believe Dietzel made a concerted effort to run up the score. He prepared his team to play a rival that had competed well in the past. Each touchdown scored by LSU in the fourth quarter came on quick scoring bursts, not long, time-consuming drives. I believe he was surprised that both the Go team and the Bandits had used up their appearances so quickly in the final quarter. He always believed that his first responsibility was to his team. If they played their allotted number of minutes each game, they would be fresh enough to give a good account of themselves, and

the likelihood of injuries would be reduced. It never occurred to him that LSU would dominate the way they did.

LSU Alumni Magazine | Fall 2022 49

LSU’s three teams did it. The team’s depth surprised Miami. But the Tigers followed up with solid fourth quarters against Kentucky, Florida, Ole Miss, Duke, Mississippi State, and Tulane. While they had energy to spare against Tulane, the three teams ensured that LSU’s was fresh when they needed it most in the final quarter of the closest games of the year against Florida and Mississippi State – two teams with big linemen that gave the Tigers problems. Florida, Duke and State were bigger at the line of scrimmage and all three out gained the Tigers that season.

little to suggest that the Tigers would prevail by such a wide margin against Tulane.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Bud Johnson, longtime contributor and creator of the magazine’s Locker Room section, passed away on June 6 (see In Memoriam, page 76). He had earlier filed this story about “The Perfect Season” – the perfect way to remember our friend and colleague.

Pete was the third pick of the 1970 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks. In his ten seasons, he played for the Hawks, New Orleans and Utah Jazz, and the Boston Celtics. He averaged 24.2 points and 5-plus assists in some 658 career games with four all-star game appearances.

Pete Maravich Statue Unveiled

The plaza now features three members of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame who starred for LSU in different eras – Bob Pettit (1951-54), Shaquille O’Neal (1989-92), and Maravich.

For the third time, a statue of an LSU men’s basketball player was unveiled in the plaza in front of the LSU practice facility and this time, the statue honored the greatest scorer and one of the top showmen in basketball history.

Pistol Pete Maravich, who dazzled crowds at the John M. Parker Ag Center (the infamous “Cow Palace”) from 1968-70, had his likeness unveiled by his wife Jackie and sons Jaeson and Josh in ceremonies outside on the plaza on June 25. The statue shows Pete at his best, with another perfect behind-the-back pass to a teammate for an easy bucket. The pose was chosen by Maravich’s sons.

He was considered to be one of the greatest creative offensive talents ever and one of the best ball handlers of all time.

50 LSU Alumni Magazine | Fall 2022

Peter Press Maravich scored 3,667 points in his three seasons at a time when there was no three-point shot, no shot clock and despite not being able to play varsity as a freshman under then-NCAA rules. He finished with an amazing scoring average of 44.2 points a game, an average that would have been well over 50 points with a three-point shot.

“I love LSU football, but the distance between Ellensburg, Wash., and Death Valley makes it a real challenge to attend a game,” writes Keith McGowan (1977 BACH AGR). “Last week I decided to buy LSU football season tickets for the first time ever, expecting that the investment would encourage me to get back to my LSU roots, my friends, and the place where I met my wife of forty years.

“Three days after securing my seats in Tiger Stadium for the 2022 season, as if an omen, I was greeted by the ‘Eye of The Tiger Rising’ southeast of my home, in the direction of Baton Rouge. It could only mean a great season lies ahead watching the LSU Fighting Tigers from within Tiger Stadium.”

Since moving to his horse ranch, family and friends have tagged Keith “Bronceaux.”

so many stories to tell. There was that time as Pistol Pete's handler when he accidently took him to a mob hangout to eat on the way home after a game and a presser in New Orleans. Shortly after dining there, the hangout was on the news after the mobster was arrested. That was a story he was too afraid to tell until after Press Maravich's death. Who selected a name for a pro basketball team? Bud, a life-long fan of Jazz, suggested it for a new franchise in New Orleans.

The nickname “Bud” came from a middle school basketball coach. He was small and eager, and the nickname stuck as he found a way to pursue his passion without numbers on his jersey. Not to be deterred by his size, Bud pivoted in high school to writing about sports encouraged by Jim Corbett, then LSU athletic director and later NBC news director. Bud continued writing, covering the Tangipahoa sports beat and calling his articles into newspapers across South Louisiana. His teenage sports journalism mentors included Hap Glaudi of the New Orleans Item and Bud Montet of the Baton Rouge Morning Advocate. Later in his life, sports memories became stories that Bud needed to tell. And he had

Marvin L. "Bud" Johnson, Jr.’s relationship to sports and athletes was his life's work and his life's story. His canonical knowledge of sports, specifically LSU sports, began by listening to games on the radio, collecting memorabilia, reading the sport's page, and consuming stats. His childhood obsession led to a career spent with Louisiana sports hall of famers, and his life's memories were punctuated with memories of the “game” or the “team” of the shared moment. The Cuban Missile Crisis? That distracted LSU fans from Coach Mac's first year and the fact that "three SEC teams – Alabama, LSU, and Ole Miss –were nationally ranked that year...." The birth of his daughter coincided with the momentous game where the Soviet Union defeated the USA in basketball.

Bringing Psychology to Academic Research

Tiger Nation PROFILE

By Madison McLoughlin

As she led a group therapy session in 2016, one client triggered another, who lunged at six-month pregnant Benedetto. Shaken, she ran into the office and slammed the door. The client followed, pounding the glass so hard it cracked. “I don’t blame him at all – he was very ill,” Benedetto explained. “It shook me enough where I was kind of like, I don’t think I’m built for this Benedettoprofession.”tookher genuine passion and her social work instincts with her when she inquired about pursuing a doctorate in geography and anthropology at LSU. Five years later, she’s “all but dissertation.” It

“The main goal is to do outreach, get the stakeholdersinvolved.”

Kathleen Benedetto.

“It was like hearing about someone you love just getting destroyed,” Benedetto said.

Almost eighteen years after Hurricane Katrina, the city of New Orleans had not returned to normal. The brass bands and Saints fans put on a front for the damp, traumatized city. Hundreds of thousands of people left when The Storm struck in 2005; many of those who stayed were not the same people they were before. Some of the fault lies in the preparation – the levee system was not prepared; disaster relief efforts were not prepared; communities were not prepared. Kathleen Benedetto (2012 BACH H&SS, 2013 MSW) a former licensed social worker, is working to change that as she finishes up her Ph.D. in climatology.

may seem like quite the jump to go from a licensed social worker in New Orleans to studying the science behind hurricanes, a source of trauma, in Baton Rouge, but for Benedetto, it made sense. “I’ve always loved bad weather,” she said. “‘Loved’ is a weird word, but I’ve always found it interesting.” Growing up in Southeast Louisiana, Benedetto and her mother would track hurricanes as they entered the Gulf of Benedetto’sMexico..own experience with Hurricane Katrina rents a room in the back of her mind. She was an oblivious high schooler in Baton Rouge when the storm hit. Once Katrina rolled through, the family was without power for ten days, and she was out of school for two weeks. Her mother, originally from New Orleans, cried in front of the battery-powered radio.

The scar that Hurricane Katrina left throbs visibly even today. In 2013, Benedetto saw it for herself when she began working at New Hope NOLA, a short-term, five-bed facility designed to help the mentally ill. For two years, the social worker cared for severely mentally ill residents, helping them stabilize before moving on to a group home or substance abuse facility. A few of her clients died during her tenure. “I was really struggling. I loved my clients, but the resources weren’t there,” Benedetto said.

She’s also looking into how scientists, meteorologists, and lay people can better understand hurricanes, so they can better prepare for the storms. “If people had a little control over their preparedness, they probably wouldn’t feel as lost,” Benedetto said. “The main goal is to do outreach, get the stakeholders involved, not just go and collect answers,” Benedetto said. “I want them to be involved because they deserve to be. It’s their community.”

Madison McLoughlin is a freelance journalist and graduate student at Johns Hopkins studying science writing.

Within her climatology studies, Benedetto incorporates psychology because she believes it’s becoming even more important to understand the mental health impacts of natural disasters. Her dissertation focuses on the increasing number of rapidly intensifying tropical cyclones. “They’re all individual, like little people. Each storm has its own personality and set of issues,” she explained.
