1997 Independence Bowl

The 1997 Independence Bowl was a college football postseason bowl rematch between the LSU Tigers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

1999 LSU Tigers football team

The 1999 LSU Tigers football team represented Louisiana State University in the 1999 NCAA Division I-A football season. Coached by Gerry DiNardo in his last year at LSU, the Tigers played their home games at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. LSU fired DiNardo before the final game of the season against conference opponent Arkansas after eight consecutive losses and named Assistant Coach Hal Hunter as interim head coach for the final game. DiNardo was given the opportunity to coach the game vs. Arkansas, but refused (in contrast to his predecessor at LSU, Curley Hallman, who coached the Tigers in their final two games of 1994 after being fired five years to the day prior to DiNardo's dismissal).In Coach Hunter's only game as the team's head coach, unranked LSU (2-8, 0-7) dominated #17 Arkansas (7-3, 4-3) in their lone victory over a conference opponent that season. Former Michigan State University head football coach Nick Saban accepted LSU's offer and took over the team in December 1999.

2000 Green Bay Packers season

The 2000 Green Bay Packers season was their 82nd season overall and their 80th in the National Football League. It was the first season for which Mike Sherman was the head coach of the team. Sherman was the thirteenth head coach in franchise history. The Packers finished 9–7, failing to qualify for the playoffs. The Packers total offense ranked 15th in the league, and their total defense ranked 15th in the league.

2000 NFL Draft

The 2000 NFL draft was the procedure by which National Football League teams selected amateur U.S. college football players. It is officially known as the NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting. The draft was held April 15–16, 2000, at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. No teams chose to claim any players in the supplemental draft that year.

The draft started with Penn State teammates Courtney Brown and LaVar Arrington being selected consecutively, making them the only Penn State players to go number one and two in the same draft. The New York Jets had four first-round draft picks, the most by any team in the history of the draft (17 teams have had three picks but no other has had four).The draft was notable for the selection of Michigan quarterback Tom Brady at the 199th pick in the sixth round by the New England Patriots; Brady has gone on to win 3 NFL MVP awards, a record 6 Super Bowl titles and 4 Super Bowl MVPs. It was also the first year since 1966 that a pure placekicker was drafted in the first round, with the Oakland Raiders selecting Florida State's Sebastian Janikowski 17th overall. The University of Tennessee lead all colleges with nine selections in the 2000 NFL draft.

2001 Green Bay Packers season

The 2001 Green Bay Packers season was their 83rd season overall and their 81st season in the National Football League.

The Packers returned to the postseason after two years of missing the playoffs if the 1999 and 2000 seasons.

They finished with a 12–4 record. After easily defeating the San Francisco 49ers in the wild card round, Green Bay's season ended with a loss to the 14–2 St. Louis Rams in the NFC divisional playoff game, in which quarterback Brett Favre threw a career high six interceptions.

2002 Atlanta Falcons season

The 2002 Atlanta Falcons season was their 37th in the league and first in the newly-formed NFC South. This was the first season under new owner Arthur Blank, who acquired the team during the 2002 off-season. The team improved upon their previous season’s output of 7–9 and qualified for the playoffs for the first time in four years. The team was also involved in a rare tie, matching the Pittsburgh Steelers 34–34 at the end of overtime.Before the season, the Falcons acquired running back Warrick Dunn to help with the team’s running game. Their running game has suffered the past three years. Dunn finished the season with 927 rushing yards and 9 total touchdowns.

After seeing limited action as a rookie, this was Michael Vick’s first full season as starting quarterback.

In the Wild Card Game, Vick and the Falcons easily stunned the Brett Favre-led Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, 27–7, giving the Packers their first ever playoff loss in Lambeau. However, a 20–6 loss to Donovan McNabb and the Philadelphia Eagles in the next round kept the Falcons from advancing in the playoffs.

This was Dan Reeves’ last full season as head coach as he was replaced by interim Wade Phillips during the following season.

Vick and linebacker Keith Brooking were voted to play in the Pro Bowl after the season. However, neither Vick not Brooking actually participated in the game. The Pro Bowl was Vick’s first and Brooking’s second.

Green Bay Packers draft history

This page is a list of the Green Bay Packers NFL Draft selections. The Packers have participated in every NFL draft since it began in 1936, in which they made Russ Letlow their first-ever selection.

Independence Bowl

The Independence Bowl is a post-season National Collegiate Athletic Association-sanctioned Division I college football bowl game that is played annually each December at Independence Stadium in Shreveport, Louisiana. The Independence Bowl was named because it was inaugurated in 1976, the year of the United States Bicentennial. Since 2017, the game has been sponsored by Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar and officially known as the Walk-On's Independence Bowl. In 2013, the game was officially referred to as simply the AdvoCare V100 Bowl after then-title sponsor AdvoCare.

LSU Tigers football statistical leaders

The LSU Tigers football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the LSU Tigers football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Tigers represent Louisiana State University in the NCAA's Southeastern Conference.

Although LSU began competing in intercollegiate football in 1893, the school's official record book does not generally include full statistics before the 1950s, as records from that period are often inconsistent and incomplete. Records set before then are occasionally included in the lists below if the statistics are available, but they generally are not.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

Since 1949, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.

The NCAA did not allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.

Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002. The Tigers have played in a bowl game every year since then, giving recent players an extra game per season to accumulate statistics. Similarly, the Tigers have played in the SEC Championship Game five times since it was first played in 1992.

The Tigers have eclipsed 5,000 total offensive yards in a season nine times in school history, all of them coming in the 21st century.These lists are updated through the end of the 2017 season.

List of LSU Tigers in the NFL Draft

The LSU Tigers football team has had 320 players drafted into the National Football League (NFL) since the league began holding drafts in 1936. This includes 41 players taken in the first round and two overall number one picks: Billy Cannon in the 1960 NFL Draft and Jamarcus Russell in the 2007 NFL Draft. Three former LSU players have been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame: Steve Van Buren, Y. A. Tittle, and Jim Taylor. As of the beginning of the 2015 NFL season, there were 40 former LSU players on active rosters in the NFL, the most of any college program.Each NFL franchise seeks to add new players through the annual NFL Draft. The draft rules were last updated in 2009. The team with the worst record the previous year picks first, the next-worst team second, and so on. Teams that did not make the playoffs are ordered by their regular-season record with any remaining ties broken by strength of schedule. Playoff participants are sequenced after non-playoff teams, based on their round of elimination (wild card, division, conference, and Super Bowl). Prior to the merger agreements in 1966, the American Football League (AFL) operated in direct competition with the NFL and held a separate draft. This led to a bidding war over top prospects between the two leagues. As part of the merger agreement on June 8, 1966, the two leagues held a multiple round "Common Draft". Once the AFL officially merged with the NFL in 1970, the "Common Draft" became the NFL Draft.
