If he's an LSU fan, he will not play for Satin or the Gumps. If he's a Louisianian he will not spend the rest of his life being labeled as a traitor and banned from this State. If he's a Gump and wants to join what is now a piss poor offensive line, then we have to live with it. As a friend of Don Shows, I just don't think Don will let this kid throw his life away like Landon Collins has. I think he's all LSU.
I hope the typical LSU fan is not of your mind set. I would like him to come to LSU as much as any fan, you included, but if he chooses Bama (the dark side), it is his life and his decision. He owes me nor any other fan anything. He only must do what he thinks is best for him and his family.
There are Louisiana athletes every year who desparately wants to play for THE HOME TEAM lsu THAT THEY HAVE DREAMED OF PLAYING FOR ALL OF THEIR LIVES, SOME OF THEM WITH THE TALENT TO DO SO. That are denied that opportunity because LSU chose some other player. Even some out of state player. How do you feel about them? shite happens right? You could care less right? So the kids have an obligation to LSU and the state but LSU and the state has no obligation to them?
In fact Cam had a friend like that. What if Cam was a player like that. Would LSU be obligated to offer his a scholly?
Now personally I hate Bama with a passion. As a Tiger fan it is a slap in the face for such a great kid from Louisiana to pick the mortal enemy. But it is still his choice. And its like in sports when you lose to an opponent. you congratulate them and shake their hand. Then start planning on how you can improve to destroy them the next time. We just have to start destroying Bama and this crap will stop.
Just think how Texas fans must have felt over the years with Oklahoma dipping into the state and taking so many stud athletes. It's the nature of the beast.
