Last year, miles and Wilson got every single person they wanted. They may have missed out on some long shots (like rsj), but pretty much got everything they wanted (and no, we didn't want Tim Williams). Watch and see how underrated this last class was. Watch when Jefferson, white, bower, Jennings, beckwith are on the field. (White and Jefferson didn't play).
I'm telling you, our talent is underrated as a whole for a reason. Simple market share. I don't tend to be a paranoid or conspiracy theorist, but when cam rob overtook LF for the top spot, someone knew what was going on. But he was on the fence anyway and everyone knew it. We're not losing anyone else in state we want. That has been the case since 2000. Miles has pretty much done what he wants on the recruiting trail every year except 2012. The 2011 class was underrated too, the 2010 class wasn't near as loaded.
We have had only one disappointing class IMO, and that was the 2012 class. We were submarined by a very dirty program and agenda and I actually felt like there was a campaign against LSU. There is a HANDFULL of plays that separate LSUs current status and Alabamas current success. But there is this notion that their program and success is so VASTLY superior. Horse shite Rigged schedules, rigged rematches etc.
It all goes back to market share. Do you think it was nick Saban and Alabama begging and setting the rematch? It wasnt. Alabama is a bigger brand period. Just imagine LSU going on to win the title and bama having to settle with losing 3 in a row to goofy ole les miles with the greatest college team of all time? Could you imagine the class we would have brought in? That was not going to be allowed to happen, that brand could not be buried right now. They fought harder then heck to prop up Oklahoma, Notre dame, Michigan and Ohio state as long as they possibly could, until it could not be done. that recruiting class after that game was the knife twist. They pulled out every dirty trick to capitalize on 1/9 and bury LSU for good.
But it's not going to work. Our guys that we recruited las year and this year are every bit as good. This will become more apparent in the following weeks as the season marches on. Jalen mills, dural a 3 star
I really believe Alabama will start on a path of decline and they will not win a championship this year or next. But that's not even the point I wanted to make.
Lsu will never get a fair shake. Because of Louisiana, and because of that, our recruiting is overlooked, under analyzed and just flat out rated wrong. Our "declining" program will produce at least 3 FIRST ROUNDERS this year. Mark it down, ban bet, bookmark, what evs.
I am doing this so people don't lose site of the big picture and understand how good we actually have it. They want you to believe that we have to have certain guys because how many stars they have by their name. Then we turn on each other when they go else where. That is what they want, no different then every troll alter hiding behind the LSU logo on here. The fact is.. Miles and LSU get who they want, not what rivals say is better or scout. If they have ***** by their name, so be it. Doesn't mean they are any less likely then a *** star that wasn't highly recruited. Cam was a long shot at best, and people actually knew that. Good riddance.
