Kramer Robertson can keep his blond locks, and Zack Hess doesn't need to disguise Rick Vaughn haircut.
After LSU's win vs. Florida State on Wednesday, LSU coach Paul Mainieri conceded that he wasn't pleased with Robertson's newly dyed blond hair. Mainieri, who has a no-facial-hair-for-players rule during the season, saw it as Robertson trying to draw attention to himself.
"But then I found out ... literally a dozen guys had done something to their hair," Mainieri said Thursday, "So I thought it was only Kramer; that's why I reacted the way that I did."
So the wild hair-dos can remain.

Mainieri admitted he caved a bit to pressure from his wife, Karen, who called him a "fuddy dud." He also said his brother-in-law, sister and one of his sons also nudged him to ease up.
"In the spirit of team bonding, it's not that big of a deal," Mainieri said. "If they think it helps wins games, God Bless them."

The "fuddy dud" coach of course joked that these are the same players who enjoyed the "rally possum" and "rally beach ball" movements.
Hair-fueled or not, the Tigers rode a five-run second inning to the victory, which sets up a rematch with Oregon State on Friday (2 p.m./ESPN). The Beavers trounced LSU 13-1 on Monday.
LSU would have to beat Oregon State (56-4) twice to secure a spot in the championship series.
