First off, God Bless the USA and LSU!
I am an Air Force Vet and went to LSU my first 2 years of college before transferring to NC State. I will always be a Tiger at heart!
As for JaMarcus, I sincerely hopes he makes it in his comeback. A lot of people would write him off since his 1st round first pick selection bust. He was not mature enough to handle the money and fame and he should have ASKED for proper guidance. LSU should have given him that (if they didn't) since any of our players reflect on our football program.
I hope he shows the CONTINUED work ethic to show he earned his 1st pick. If he doesn't make it in 2013, I hope he has the perserverence and fortitude to keep trying. After 2014, his chances are even slimmer IMHO.
That said, I hope the kid and now a man has not blown through all this guaranteed $30 mil and saves enough to live a comfortable life. I know I would be if I were in his position.
Also, academics are rarely important to elite athletes but I hope he will at least finish a degree at LSU. In the end, I think he at least owes some work to help the LSU football program.
