Did any of the Manning's take official visits to LSU?


I'm pretty sure Eli did, not certain.

Yeah, that's right. We beat him his senior year when he was wearing the cast.


Yep. Listening to this game on the radio at my grandparents' house in North Baton Rouge is one of my first memories of LSU football.

They had no ties to LSU. They had no reason to be fond to it. They had ties to one of LSU's main rival. Just b/c he played for the Saints doesn't mean he becomes an adopted LSU fan. And the only games his sons ever went to were Ole Miss games.


By the same token, there's no reason LSU fans should have any special affection for the Mannings. And I don't.

Archie will probably cut off the grandkid from the family fortune if he doesn't shape up. I was watching that clip - loved it.

Archie hates LSU.

Archie also pissed me off leading up to the Saints SB win by talking a lot more than he needed to. I don't recall specifics, but it went well beyond saying the obvious about pulling for his son.

Archie sucked arse with the Saints so I don't even know why Saints fans put him on such a high pedestal?

When your kid is born and raised in New Orleans, there's natural ties to LSU


Let's say Kevin Faulk stays in Boston and lives there for the rest of his life. He has a son that grows up to be a 5 star recruit. You think he should go to Boston College and not consider LSU?

i think you're right. i recall at the time it was pretty common knowledge that this was just a token gesture to the in-state school and that Archie/Eli had no intention of wearing purple and gold.

Look I think we all can agree that the Manning's hate LSU. No Manning will ever come to LSU. I don't care how many boys they have.

Which is why I don't get the hero worship. I don't hate them, but they mean nothing to me.

re: LSU vs the Mannings


yeah, my wife has been watching it and I caught the last half of it with her last night. She was all happy with the Mannings, the royal family, as portrayed. Then I told her about Archie meddling with Eli's draft and basically telling the Chargers that his kid was too good for them, and told her about Peytie Pie waving his junk in that female trainer's face and having to pay her $300K.

she always hates it when I bring the reality.

you know Archie told ESPN that Peyton's dirty deed was off-limits. Surprised they were allowed to mention Eli's drunken arrest.

Found this website on Peyton in high school.

Peyton Manning in high school

quote:

When Peyton won the starting quarterback job at Newman as a sophomore 1991, it was Cooper who paved the way. Cooper switched to receiver his senior year, even though he was set to call the signals for the Greenies, the defending Class 2A state champs. The move paid big dividends.


No they werent, they didnt make it to regionals. Buras High owned that ass.

That is what I would like to know. What give back to Newman High School? Give a turf field to NSU? With all the money that they have they demanded that either Nicholls or the State fix the conditions of the practice fields or they would go else where. So what does our great Governor do, find 1.something million to improve drainage and other facilities. Yet, we have not received a freaking raise in over 6 years in high ed!

I noticed the story mentioned nothing about how Peyton likes to manwhore it up at Last Call.

re: LSU vs the Mannings


Archie went to Ole Miss for his father. I think this "Mannings hate LSU" thing is absurd. Can anyone blame Peyton for going to Tennessee at the time? We were a dumpster fire from AD down...
