History

The Ugly era (2013)

The 2013 season is the first in which the LSU Tigers played. The Tigers finished the regular season with a 11-1 record and won the SEC Western Division title. They defeated the Florida Gators in the 2013 SEC Championship Game, 20-10 and advanced to the 2013 CFBHC Playoffs. The Tigers beat Florida State 21-13 and Michigan 22-7 to win the first ever CFBHC national championship. The Ugly retired after the inaugural CFBHC season.

Playoffs? PLAYOFFS!? era (2014)

Following The Ugly, Playoffs? PLAYOFFS!? took over the Tigers and lead the team to a disappointing 9-4 record. After the season Playoffs? PLAYOFFS!? was unceremoniously when the coach was revealed to be a part of the HaiThere scandal that involved information sharing and possibly match fixing across a number of CFBHC teams.

TheCrimsonChin era (2015-2017)

After the HaiThere scandal, the Tigers hired rookie head coach TheCrimsonChin to resurrect the team. Coach Chin had moderate success at LSU going 8-5 in 2015 and 9-4 in both 2017. However due in part from pressure from fans and the schools athletic department, TheCrimsonChin left LSU to coach his alma mater Georgia after the retirement of long-time Georgia coach, Franz Kafka.

cmcgill era (2018-present)

After the departure of TheCrimsonChin the Tigers hired alumus cmcgill who had been the head coach at Kentucky since the 2013 season. The hire was seen as controversial at the time due to cmcgill's post-season record and lack of prior recruiting success. However, cmcgill has become the winningest coach in program history and second in winning percentage behind The Ugly.
