  1. Past hour
  2. Saw Cannona few weeks back, TAF get together. Moving slow, but still had his humor.
  3. Today
  4. Sorry to hear this. I hoped he had more years to grace LSU with his presence. But, he had a full rich life, he sounded fulfilled and at peace in his interviews in later years. You can't ask for much more. The sense I got from his interviews that impressed me was how precise and achievement oriented he was, not just in football but in his life. It seemed if he went after something, he went after it to win. He would study what it took to win, and then he set about doing that. I got the sense that yes, he had some natural gifts, but winning a Heisman for him was not just an accident, he'd prepared to excel. When he addressed the LSU football team, I think that is what he tried to impart to them. Very impressive man. I'm so glad that he was able to reconnect with the LSU community the way he did! RIP Billy Cannon!
  5. Just saw that, RIP
  6. An LSU legend is gone https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.seccountry.com/lsu/billy-cannon-lsu-football-passes-away/amp
  7. It definitely was a business to Key.
  8. I'm sure y'all saw the tweet Arden Key sent welcoming Burrow to LSU? It shows exactly why he'll fail. https://www.seccountry.com/lsu/family-issues-at-lsu-arden-key-deflates-derrius-guices-welcome-to-joe-burrow
  9. That's a coach's son right there. It says a lot that O and Ensminger were able to convince him that LSU was the place for him. Certainly Burrow's father knows this business inside and out, so it really is a statement. Watching that kid (nearly grown man) speak to those reporters, he's a seasoned veteran in the language. Here's his opportunity to shine. There are definitely the athletes around him to work with. Can the coaching staff live up to their end of the bargain?
  10. J.J. Watt offers to pay for funerals of all Santa Fe High School shooting victims.
  11. Tomorrow Lee will have around 700 high school players from this upcoming season. Picture taking time for his magazine. I plan to be there.
  12. FOX Sports Analyst Calls Alabama Football Fans 'Dumbest in the Country' Alabama now has another accomplishment it can add to its ever-growing trophy case: the No. 1 ranking for dumbest fanbase in America. According to Outkickthecoverage.com’s Clay Travis, success doesn’t just breed jealously...it also breeds idiots: The Alabama Crimson Tide fan base is the dumbest in the country and there isn’t a close second. Alabama’s fan base stupidity is not a function of a small minority of bad apples ruining it for the rest of the fans, nope, it’s the majority of the fan base that gives Alabama fans a bad name. Let’s be clear about this, Harvey Updyke was not an outlier. When news broke that authorities had arrested a man for poisoning the trees at Auburn, millions of Alabama fans secretly thought to themselves, “God, I hope it’s not Uncle Ray." Whatever the case, Clay certainly has a lot of anger towards the Tide fanbase.
  13. Yesterday
  14. And I really like this one! I hope Burrow makes the Gators cry in Gainesville this year. https://www.readandreaction.com/2018/05/09/why-joe-burrow-may-be-the-most-important-recruit-of-the-mullen-era-at-florida/
  15. Another good read on Burrow. The more I read, the more excited I get about his coming to LSU. This kid can play and he's smart. https://www.nola.com/expo/erry-2018/05/25d4ffd93b6859/7_things_to_know_about_new_lsu.html#incart_m-rpt-2
  16. Nice read on Burrow prior to his transfer. This Gator writer thought pretty highly of him. https://www.readandreaction.com/2018/04/09/ohio-state-qb-joe-burrow-transfers-upgrade-gators-qb/
  17. Shows several things, really. Willingness to compete Desire to play in big games Look at.our schedule. At LSU, he can play against Miami and Alabama. At cincy, he's literally playing against Miami of Ohio and Alabama A&M lol But it also shows we had a deficiency at the most important position on the field. I'm extremely happy we were able to fill that void.
  18. I honestly did not think he would come. The easy choice for him would have been Cincy, play 2 and enter the draft. For me says a lot about his character that he chose us. Good luck to all 4 QBs and may the best man win the job!
  19. Jeaux Burreaux, come on down!
  20. I went by a Jacksonville board to see what they think about Leonard after a season, and there was an article they were talking about that said Leonard was not that instrumental in Jacksonville's turnaround last year, rather it was the defense that came on. Here are a couple of fan assessments of the article: I've watched the Jacksonville board a bit last year, and the reaction to Fournette has been interesting. He's good, they know he's good. But, he didn't break many really long runs like he did at LSU. Certainly the average defense in the NFL is better than college. But when you consider the defense was keying on Leonard all the time, and he carried the ball a lot, he was their workhorse. They will count of DJ Chark to make a difference in the passing game this year, and hopefully take some pressure off of Leonard, get that eighth guy out of the box by making them respect the passing game. THen there is always the Jacksonville dig, is Blake Bortles at QB good enough to make anyone respect their passing game? Most fans over there think not. I hope he develops into a better QB with experience, some guys have done that like Jim Plunkett after he was revived in Oakland and won a Super Bowl. I hope they don't use him up like Houston did to Earl Campbell, who was highly highly productive for 5 years as the bellcow, then his career suddenly ended, he was used up. I also wonder about Leonard, will he learn anything about running in the NFL with a season under his belt? Can an NFL running back learn about the game after his rookie year, or is a back fully developed by the time he hits the NFL, its all physical and instincts, and he is as good as he's going to get (which is damn good!)?
  21. Welcome, Joe! You chose wisely, young man!
  22. And FINALLY!! It's JOE OFFICIAL!! @Joe_Burrow10: Excited to be playing in Death Valley next season. Ready to get to work. BOOM!!!
  23. So that makes it "dad official", and that's good enough for me. Welcome Joe!! Congrats on becoming a TIGER!
  24. Oh, btw...from a pay site, so I'll just post a snippet... The waiting game is officially over, and now the LSU football team has a new quarterback on the roster.Ohio State graduate transfer quarterback Joe Burrow has committed to finishing out his collegiate career at LSU, his father, Jimmy Burrow, told 247Sports' Bill Kurelic on Friday evening. In a message late Friday night, Jim Burrow told 247Sports that his son “has committed to LSU", going on to add that he is not sure “if Joe is posting anything.”
  25. Yeah, that's just my .02. He's gained some weight, but still way too skinny to play in the SEC. Look at a guy like Burrow...approx the same height at Brennan, 20 lbs heavier. He's ready to play big time football, physically. On the confidence end, that's just my take from watching the Spring games of Brennan vs those of Burrow. Burrow is completely confident and obviously capable. I believe Brennan to be capable, but not confident. I know Brennan is accurate, I followed his HS career well enough. But when the rush is coming at him, he's jumpy and it leads to sub 50% completions in a game he couldn't even be hit. Meanwhile, tOSU running full contact spring games, and Joe B is over 70% completions...even in his limited real game play. Getting Burrow may not mean LSU is suddenly a title contender, but that was never my point with being excited about this. I'm interested in LSU being the best they can be, and I have no doubt he makes us better. Even if one of the current QBs transfer. If he wasn't a better option NOW than what we have, I can't imagine O and Co. waste their time recruiting him. Back on topic, Narcisse is physically ready to play SEC ball, and I imagine they have packages for him. If they do, McMillan could be the back up, Narcisse have his package, and Brennan RS to gain some much needed weight, all the while learning as he goes. Burrow is here for two years max. If he stays for both, Brennan and Narcisse are RS Jrs when he leaves. Honestly a perfect set up IMO.
  26. The fastest
  27. I have never wanted you to be right any more than this post! I think the turmoil with the rumors of Canada leaving pretty much killed our chances with any elite QB last year. This was probably the best solution we could have hoped for.
  28. I guess they make that decision in August. If he won the backup job, they would not redshirt him. If McMillan is the backup (assuming Burrow does what he is coming here for, to win the starting job), then maybe Brennan could redshirt.
