jrvente, let me be clear. I'm not saying Riley is not a good player.
I am not saying he is not productive.
I am not saying he is not talented.
I am not saying he does not have the potential to play on an SEC Field.
I am not-nor will I ever-debate about whether a kid should be a three, four or five star player. That's a totall subjective discussion that makes zero sense in worrying about or spending your time talking about.
What I am saying is that Riley is going to get caught up in a numbers game at LSU that will prevent him from seeing the field. There are simply more talented, more experienced players ahead of him.
I've asked you already to explain what the HS landscape looks like in-state for 2014, as well as perhaps give me some background on other LSU targets in our recruiting area. You haven't done that.
I've rebutted your discussion points by talking about the depth chart in detail, and then deconstructing the myth regarding his technique as it relates to early playing time.
Do you have an actual point to make in repsonse to me, or are you just going to repeat this talk about a one dollar bet?
You seem like a guy who is heavy on substance, but I'm trying to give you a different perspective that's also heavy on substance. Its a perspective you may not like. But why not explain to me why you think differently?
you know what i could really argue with you all day...i could rebut every point that you claim you have rebutted in my argument about Duke, i could sit here and research every linebacker in the state from 2014 on down to 2017...
I could but Im not...why you ask? first I am at work...second...I only argue for money, if you ain't paying I ain't arguing...
Now you have your opinion and I have mine. Because i have played linebacker for 15 years of my athletic career I consider myself very knowledgable about the position...whether he plays here at LSU or somewhere else. I am of the opinion that Duke Riley deserves more than 3 stars.
