Jeremy hill has more production in one freshman season that Alfred blue does in the whole time he been here.
I'm in no way anti Alfred blue but for fricks sake people... Jeremy hill is that best back we've had prob since Kevin Faulk. God forbid les miles give him a carry in the fourth quarter of a football game... I suppose his efforts vs USC wasn't proof enough.
We havent had feature back since prob toefield, maybe even KFaulk.. Charles Scott was there with SRidley, before that it was Hester and KWilliams and Cscott toefield, DDavis, Justin vincent, SHy carey, Joe Addai and Alley Brousard.
I think JHill is better than all those guys. Thats just me though.
Blue looks real good in the practice clips, but game contact, and trusting the knee, will remain to be seen...The kid looks real good, though, and he's the best back we had, when he was healthy. He just has the better all around game. He's not a better runner, than Hill IMO, but he has been the best blocker, chipper, reciever...just all around guy....He gives LSU its best chance at running, and passing, and keeping the D off-balance than anyone we got. I bet he'll be #1 at the start of the season...which is something to be excited about, when you think of how good Hill is....

really too early to make a depth chart call but Blue may be the best looking athlete on the field. we have three very good backs in Hill, Blue and Hilliard. McGee is very capable and Brazil has lightspeed potential. I like.

Not knocking Blue, but look at the teams Hill put those numbers up against vs. the teams blue put em up against. Also Blue busted a lot of long runs 2 years ago in the 3rd and 4th quarters when the other team's D was tired and the games were getting out of hand. I feel Hill is better, but can't go wrong with Blue either.
