That was entirely true. Are you saying UCLA players dont get scouted by NFL teams or something? We aren't in the 1960s/1970s anymore.

How can he possibly choose UCLA over LSU? UCLA sucks. They're nothing but a bunch of liberals out there. Not much football tradition in past 20 years, and they don't have an on-campus stadium. On the other hand, look at us!

LOL at the idea that most college athletes care about politics. An even bigger LOL at the idea that, of those who do, more are conservative than liberal.

And I say that as a ... well, just look at my name.

Correct. FSU has a sports marketing school that did a study on CFB recruiting. 78% listed distance from home as #1 factor for their destination.

You do realize most people on LSU's campus are most likely liberal right?

Very interesting opinion. I'd have to say that I would say the complete opposite from my experience, but different crowds see the university in different ways.

..I guess that means that we're gonna be able to accommodate priest, regardless of his political views!!

This is directed at everyone.


Why The Frick does it matter what his political beliefs are? He is 6'2 and a lock down DB.

He can be a communist and I would want him on my squad. Let that B.S. go.

If the distance doesn't matter he will be here. If it does, he won't. Pretty simple.

UCLA plays in Pasadena, which is 45 minutes from thier Campus...can you imagine driving to New Orleans to see the Tigers play a home game?

That alone has to hurt their recruiting

What do you find so funny from my comment? If you think a guy can't get drafted from UCLA you simply have never watched the NFL or paid attention to the NFL draft.

So you think NFL scouts, guys paid by Billion dollar NFL teams only watch CBS and EXPN games? Don't have anyone out in the 2nd largest city in the country? No access to the interwebs?

Just from the 2012 draft the 9th pick was from Boston College, the 11th pick was from Memphis, how often you figure those teams were on TV?

There is being a homer and then there is just being willfully ignorant.
