I think people forget this isn't about LSU it's about what's best for Nick. LSU understands that they are so heavily invested in Fournette that he's there man for 3 years regardless! Any other running back that gets caught up in those 3 years are just collateral damage.... That's his or any other backs reality for 3 years!
this is ignorant. I guess hill shouldn't have followed hillard since he came in with hype or Magee for that matter.
You can go back through lsu history, gary james had as much hype as fournette, dalton hillard won the job. Kevin is probably the mosted hyped, Mealy and cecil collins found their place. In fact if collins doesn't get arrested, he would have been the starter.
Jermain williams came in with a lot of hype and couldn't be the starter. Jermain Sharpe, Kevin Franklin, Rober toomer, lebrandon toefield. Guys like Jay johnson, dom davis, eddie fuller etc beat them out.
How about Justin vincent, five star, all freshman, n.c. and s.e.c. champ game m.v.p., couldn't even win his job back the next year.
The last few years we saw five star spencer ware lose the starting job to alfred blue and kenny hillard only for them to lose it to Jeremy Hill.
To think miles/lsu is so invested in one guy for the program is just ludicrous and ignorant.
