LSU is currently expanding Tiger Stadium adding a new upper deck in the south end zone with additional luxury suites and closing off the south end of the stadium.

The changes will bring the stadium’s seating capacity over 100,000.

The school released a picture of what the final renovations should look on Monday afternoon, giving fans a 3D preview of what is to come.

Tiger Stadium was last renovated in 2000 with an expansion on the east side of the stadium that added over 11,000 new seats, bringing the official seating capacity to 91,600.

In 2004, the west side of the stadium was renovated to add luxury boxes. More club seats were added just a few years ago, but this expansion will make Tiger Stadium the third stadium in the SEC with a capacity over 100,000, joining Tennessee and Alabama.

Texas A&M is underway on renovations to Kyle Field that are expected to increase the seating capacity over 100,00 as well.

Kavahra HolmesNow, another Tigers freshman DB has been suspended after being arrested on — you guessed it — a battery charge.

Reserve cornerback Kavahra Holmes was arrested last week following an on-campus incident.

According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune:

Witnesses told police Holmes, 19, pushed two victims to the ground after a verbal altercation turned physical at the ’5′ dining hall near West Campus Apartments on Oct. 22, LSU police public information officer Capt. Cory Lalonde said. One of the victims did not wish to pursue charges, but both the victims and a witness identified Holmes as the person who pushed the victims to the ground, Lalonde said.

Les Miles said Thursday that Holmes has been suspended indefinitely from the football team.

A 3-star member of LSU’s 2012 recruiting class, has played in just one game this season.

[dropcap]F[/dropcap]ormer Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will become offensive coordinator at LSU, according to multiple reports.

Final details of deal are being ironed out and an official announcement is expected next week.

Cameron will replace Greg Studrawa, who would apparently remain with LSU as offensive line coach. Studrawa took over as play caller for the Tigers after Steve Kragthorpe stepped down as coordinator before the 2011 season due to a battle with Parkinson’s disease. Kragthorpe will stay on at LSU in an athletic department administrative position, a source said.

A longtime friend of Les Miles, Cameron worked with Miles at Michigan where they coached under the late Bo Schembechler.

Cameron was fired by Ravens coach John Harbaugh after a Week 14 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Harbaugh and Cameron have apparently remained on good terms, sending each other text messages throughout the Ravens’ playoff run, and Harbaugh said that Cameron will still receive a Super Bowl ring.

[dropcap]L[/dropcap]es Miles live tweeted last night’s Super Bowl from the Harbaugh box at the Super Dome, and as you’d expect, he did it as only “The Mad Hatter” could.

A selection of our favorite Miles tweets is below. (If you’re on Twitter and you’re not already following @LSUCoachMiles, do yourself a favor.)

Les wishes the teams well as only Les can…

He gave former Tiger Ricky Jean-Francois a catchy new nickname,”# 95 of 49er”…

Anyone know what a “pass draw” is??

Did Les foretell the coming power outage?

I think many of his tweets were written in another language, then put through Google’s translator service before posting. (H/TTeam Speed Kills)

Always on the lookout for talent…

Some deep thoughts on what the Harbaughs were experiencing through during the blackout…

Could be? Down by 5 with under 2 minutes left, what would Les have in mind as an alternative??

I think we all agree on his final message…
