  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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/
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Quite staggering. Congratulations indeed.

  9. http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2018/04/lsu_football_graduate_transfer.html#incart_river_index The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Watson suffered a season-ending lower leg injury in Cal's second game last season. As a junior, Watson had 143 carries for 709 yards and four touchdowns and added 21 receptions for 241 yards and four touchdowns. Those are good numbers. If he's healthy we could sure use the help.
  10. Man, if Narcisse is getting Down to 240, then that means he got quite heavy. I think he was listed at 220 lbs coming to LSU. He was an EE so at first he was just rehabbing, but then he was practicing throughout, so that doesn't sound good for a 18 / 19 year old athlete.
  11. Well, he came in at 5'11" and 175, so I'll stick with my prediction of 2nd rounder. But, I must admit, buzz is abound, so we'll see. It's always good for any Tiger to get drafted in the first and certainly it would help keep up the DBU moniker.
  12. He can go sell that ish somewhere else. In the year we signed Malachi and Adams, I was very pleased and wrote so on this forum. This time around, we lost out big time at a position where we have an incredible reputation, playing time to offer and a serious need for top notch talent. We're going to have to hope that our emphasis on the trenches pays big dividends. And fast.
