LSU player (sort of) turned actor

Actor Paul Rae, a native of Louisiana, is getting a lot of run these days as a "former LSU football player'' with a role in "Daddy Day Camp.''

You won't find Rae's name in the list of LSU lettermen in the media guide. Nor will you find his name among the signees.

All we can go on, I guess, is the fact that Rae says he was on the LSU football team. This would have been around the Mike Archer coaching era.

It reminds me of being in the press room before an LSU-Miss. State basketball game some time back. Then Mississippi State coach Bob Boyd was joking about putting stuff on your resume because no one could check it out. (This was before George O'Leary by the way.)

We'll never know, I guess, if Rae indeed ran through the tunnel at Tiger Stadium. But for now, I guess we have to believe he was a squad member before he was a professional actor.
