LSU kicked off what promises to be a grueling month Thursday with a 9 a.m. practice -- the first official practice of the 2012 season.

As will be the case for the first three practices of August, Thursday morning was a varsity practice, so there was no sign of any incoming freshmen or transfers. Thus, much to the dismay of media everywhere, Penn State transfer Rob Bolden was not on hand.

Instead, reporters caught 25 minutes of initial veteran workouts, with a few notes worth mentioning.
