LSU's defense has helped mold LSU's offense into the nation's best

  LSU's defense has helped mold LSU's offense into the nation's best While LSU's offense has made headlines all season, the Tigers' growth is due in no small part to defensive coordinator Dave Aranda.For what may be the last time during the 2019 season, an LSU offense that has set and reset school and conference records was rocked on its heels by an opposing defense. Offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger was not amused, and told Aranda as much in colorful, expletive-laden terms.

An emotional Joe Biden broke down in tears in an interview on Wednesday when asked about how his late son guides him on the campaign trail.

"Beau should be the one running for president, not me," Biden said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Beau was the attorney general of Delaware when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He died in 2015 at the age of 46. Joe Biden said his son pushed him to stay politically engaged during his cancer fight.

"He was worried I would walk away" from public service, Biden said on Wednesday morning. "He is part of me, and so is my surviving son Hunter and (daughter) Ashley."

Biden has long said that his very public loss — his wife and infant daughter in a car crash decades ago and later Beau — is a point of connection with voters.

"You'd be amazed at the number of people who come up to me," he said. "I mean hundreds of people over time. They'll throw their arms around me, men and women, and say, 'I just lost my son, I just lost my father, I just lost my wife.' And all they want to know is that you're going to make it."

The former vice president recalled that Beau would be the last person to talk to him before vice presidential debates, grabbing him by the lapel and saying "just be who you are."

"He still grabs me by the lapel every time I walk out," Joe Biden said, wiping tears away from his face.

Exclusive: Nevada poll shows Biden-Sanders showdown in a tightening Democratic race

  Exclusive: Nevada poll shows Biden-Sanders showdown in a tightening Democratic race An exclusive Suffolk University/USA TODAY Network Poll of Nevada shows another early state where the race is tightening: A Biden-Sanders showdown?As Democratic contenders prepare to debate Tuesday in Des Moines – the final debate before the opening caucuses in Iowa – the field is shrinking and the race may be heading toward a showdown between a familiar centrist and a firebrand liberal who represent starkly different choices for the party.

Biden also spoke at length about Social Security, the latest in his spat with Sen. Bernie Sanders over the entitlement program. The former vice president pushed back Sanders' tweeted claim that he'd once advocated cutting the entitlement program.

"No, no, no, no," he said when asked if he would ever cut Social Security in the future. "We weren't talking about cutting them either then — that was trying to figure out how we got through a debacle where the whole government didn't shut down."

He complained that going back decades to take politics out of context was pointless.

"It's like me pointing out Bernie voted against Brady Bill five times while I was trying to get it passed," Biden said of the law that mandated federal background checks on gun purchases. "He's made up for that."
