  1. 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
  2. Will be glad to see this a 100% done deal. All of the reports use the word "reportedly" as of now.
  3. This is really good news. What originally appeared as a ho-hum recruiting class that was panned by analysts has rounded out nicely. If this past recruiting class were a draft for an NFL team, it would have gotten very favorable grades. But because this was a recruiting class for a team constantly held up to the yardstick of Bama (more than any team in the countery ever does) it was ranked as a disappointment by the analysts. Since NSD, LSU has added 2 ket pieces that were missing at the time the analysts all reaffirmed their homoerotic attractions to little nicky and went home having placed their final grades on LSU recruitment: Terrence Alexander - graduate traansfer CB from Stanford - a nice adddition for DBU when the haul of NSD had no corners. Joe Burrow - transfer QB from Ohio State - an instant upgrade to a position LSU always gets a bad wrap for (rightly or wrongly). Adding those 2 pieces to a less-than-sexy recruiting recruiting class that was designed by intention to fill depth on a roster that has been depleted by an exodus of players leaving early for the draft bumps that grade up considerably. Add that to what looks like a great start to the 2019 class and any Tiger fan with a scintilla of sapience has reason for optimism about the health of the program.
  4. No chest.

  6. No chest v2.0?
  7. As long as he's not this kind:
  8. Depends on the booger! I hope we get this kid. The only thing that concerns me on the videos is that it looked like he locked on his receiver early and often. Other plays he did appear to check down, but he needs to not telegraph where he is giong with his passes. Arm looks really good, though.
  9. In 2 years he can probably add 40 lbs without losing a step at all.
  10. I've always wanted a black helmet with a solid gold Fleur de Lis. Also...the NFL should have some kind of LED illumination that would go off if a helmet got banged too hard then turn off after 15 seconds...kind of like those shoes kids wear. That way, they could tell who is getting dinged.
  11. LOL...booger jokes never get old.

  13. http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_615d7baa-4bf9-11e8-91a2-4bf1023efe70.html LSU lands 4-star linebacker Marcel Brooks for 2019 recruiting class BY MIKE GEGENHEIMER | Special to The Advocate Apr 29, 2018 - 5:05 pm LSU's 2019 recruiting class took a big boost on Sunday with the commitment of 4-star linebacker Marcel Brooks out of Texas. At 6 foot 3, 200 pounds, Brooks is the No. 5 outside linebacker in the country, according to 247Sports, and the second highest-rated commitment for the Tigers in 2019 as the No. 112 overall prospect. So far, LSU has eight commitments with a little less than a year to go before signing day. Brooks is the first outside linebacker of the group. Brooks made his announcement with a video posted on Twitter of him walking out of the tunnel in Tiger Stadium while saying, "Are you all in? Because I am." The video did not make clear when it was shot. He previously announced his decision was between LSU and Alabama who currently have the No. 4 class in the country. With Brooks, LSU improved from No. 15 to No. 11.
  14. I think he definately was blackballed. I also heard he was deemed "too egotisctical" by some teams? Yet Josh Rosen was taken in the top 10. I've never heard a bad thing about Guice as a person, yet he was labeled as having character concerns. I hate the Skins but I hope Guice tears its up.
