Another pro analyst guessing without having to worry about getting called out after he is proven wrong.

So if it is a business decision then ESPN thinks Fournette is not going to make it in the NFL.

This "bold prediction" crap basically is throw out something that isn't going to happen, but if it does happen you look like a genius. Not worth debating

With that platoon of RBs Alabama already has? Yeah no.
Hell get more carries and have just as good run blocking as Alabama here.

Or he could make a "business decision" and play for an offensive coordinator who has gotten more production out of his running backs at the NFL and collegiate level over the decade than arguably anybody else.

Seriously, what coach at any level has coached a more productive group of running backs than the following: LaDainian Tomlinson, Ray Rice, Michael Turner, Darren Sproles, Ronnie Brown, Willis McGahee, Jeremy Hill, and Levron Williams.

ESPN has no knowledge of recruiting. They might as well predict the X games.

Cam gets credit for developing Brees, Rivers, and Flacco but his production with running backs is excellent.

I'll start with his final year at Indiana:

2001 - Levron Williams (averaged 6.8 yards per carry for his career; led nation in all-purpose yards as a senior)

2002 - Tomlinson (3rd in NFL in yards from scrimmage; 2nd in NFL in rushing yards)

2003 - Tomlinson (led NFL in yards from scrimmage; 3rd in NFL in rushing yards; 3rd in touchdowns)

2004 - Tomlinson (1st in NFL in rushing TDs)

2005 - Tomlinson (5th in NFL in yards from scrimmage; 3rd in rushing TDs)

2006 - Tomlinson (NFL record for single-season rushing TDs; No. 1 rushing yards, No. 2 yards from scrimmage)

2007 - Ronnie Brown (led entire NFL in total yards from scrimmage until week seven injury)

2008 - Ray Rice (Ravens were fourth in NFL in rushing yards and 5th in rushing TDs)

2009 - Ray Rice (2nd in NFL in yards from scrimmage)

2010 - Ray Rice (3rd in NFL in yards from scrimmage)

2011 - Ray Rice (led NFL in yards from scrimmage; 2nd in rushing yards)

2012 - Ray Rice (9th in NFL in yards from scrimmage)

2013 - Jeremy Hill (tied for 1st in rushing TDs; 9th in college football in yards)

As much as I want to see LF go to LSU, I would also like to see the meltdown on this board if he were to pull a McKnight. It would be epic.

"business decision" HAHA Fournette isn't taking college football to market himself for the NFL and getting a high draft stock he has SPECIFICALLY said he wants a education FIRST and says he wants a degree in construction management/engineering, I know right! , im studying electrical engineering right now at LSU and if he can handle a similar course load AND football at the same time , me: , and I know from research LSU has a higher standing in the engineering school (much higher at that) than bama

IDGAF what anybody says....ESPN has an agenda and its always been to promote $abun.

From the day he took the job they have helped push the $abun agenda and it has not stopped.

I would like to know how many gumps work at ESPN



AND MEANWHILE CERTAIN ARSEHATS on the tiger rant want to praise the guy. Pathetic

I have no respect for the liar. Besides ESPN has been trying to pronounce LSU dead since the liar left.
