  1. This is a guy who has been around and could have his pick of a job around the country. It does say something to me that he feels this way. https://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2018/06/dave_aranda_stayed_lsu_texas_a.html
  2. He's one of those guys that got drafted by the perfect team, the perfect coach. Like Alvin Kamara to the Saints. Couldn't have worked out any better.
  3. After a video of LSU’s Mike the Tiger “sneaking up” on some visitors at his habitat went viral recently, his caretakers are urging the public not to provoke him to jump at the glass because he could hurt himself, according to a report. Ginger Guttner, communications manager for the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, told WBRZ that when people turn their backs to the glass at Mike’s enclosure, it makes him want to pounce because he’s “an ambush predator.” Guttner said that if Mike does pounce at the glass, he could break a tooth, which would make him unable to eat or possibly require dental surgery. Tooth loss is also the No. 1 cause of death for tigers in the wild, Guttner told WBRZ. http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/article_1d6e7b3c-754e-11e8-8a09-cfab318a1f54.html

  5. For years, Pippa the fearless dog would bark at, chase and otherwise harass Casey the saltwater crocodile at the remote Goat Island Lodge in Australia. The tiny dog, running straight toward death over and over again, always wound up scaring it into the water instead. Not this time. “It was something that had a high probability of happening sometime,” Pippa's owner, Kai Hansen, said, according to the Independent, after the dog was finally eaten by the croc while horrified onlookers screamed and a camera captured the whole thing. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/world/article212726979.html
  6. QB Grant Gunnell commits to Arizona and Kevin Sumlin. Ranked by the industry-generated 247Sports Composite as the nation’s No. 3 pro-style passer, the 6-foot-6, 222-pound Gunnell announced his verbal to Sumlin and the Wildcats on Wednesday evening, reuniting with a couple coaches he gave his word to when they were at Texas A&M in Sumlin and offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone. "For me it was definitely the comfortability with the coaches and everything I learned on my official visit," Gunnell said of his April 20 visit to campus.
  7. And still helping out local kids in Jacksonville. http://www.espn.com/blog/jacksonville-jaguars/post/_/id/25487/jaguars-star-leonard-fournette-forges-bond-with-state-champs
  8. Cool story. Shows his make up and moxie. http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2018/05/joe_burrow_high_school_lsu.html#incart_m-rpt-2
  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. 4* athlete with the length and speed you look for at the position. Richard Sherman made the same switch at Stanford. I believe Netherly has just as good a chance as anyone to place on the outside opposite Greedy. My reasons for optimism about the changes upcoming at CB are three fold. One is that Corey Raymond will be focused solely on coaching the CBs this season. Second is that there's going to be a lot of competition between some superb athletes. Third is Dave Aranda not playing a guy to his strengths. Plus, we should be solid at Safety which helps give the CBs confidence they'll have the help where it's needed.
  11. I think for players with little to no game time experience, it's difficult to separate from the pack in practice alone. At least in a positive way. If you're fumbling, throwing INTs, missing wide open targets, can't get in and out of the huddle, etc. it's easy to separate yourself down the depth chart. But if everyone is doing most of what's expected in practice and each have different things they have to work on, it gets cloudy. I think that's even more true of young players, which Brennan and Narcisse most certainly are. Sometimes these guy have to get the live reps and see who can play under the bright lights. The challenge with that is once you pick the guy and put him out there, you don't want to have a short leash unless he completely wets the bed. So you end up giving a guy leeway until he costs you a game or two. I'd like to think Ensminger being a former QB would be good at evaluating QBs, but we'll see.
  12. Says Mullen isn't interested in Burrow, but would definitely want Hurts if he loses the starting job and transfers out of Bama. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/florida-football/joe-burrow-might-not-answer-dan-mullen-jalen-hurts/
  13. If Guice is fell completely due to a perceived lackadasical attitude, they haven't watched the man play. Goofball? Does things many other kids his age do, ok? Sure. But he's a straight baller and works hard. Redskins are a tough team to land on historically over the past 20 years, but I'm sure he's going to put up some years and some numbers.
  14. I like Baker Mayfield. Outstanding teammate, student of the game, prior walk on who was so determined he won the Heisman Trophy, aggressive, has the confidence he is always going to win.... Evidently many GMs felt that same way, and he went #1 overall. Not humble? Ok.
  15. Quite staggering. Congratulations indeed.
