Also. In 09 we had a massively talented recruiting class. Everyone of those guys were ballers. Ranked number 1 class by espn and number 2 by just about every other service.
All those guys are gone, all those guys were talented enough to have a way above average shot at the league coming out of high school. There is the bulk of the recent defectors.
Minter 4th mike backer rated nationally
Mingo/Montgomery/rasco/hunter/Allen top 7 DEs
Ford/ware top 5 RBs coming out
Faulk/La'el/ Alexander top 8 oline coming out
Freak/ego/brockers etc. top 5 coming out. Logan was not. Improved his stock by coming back.
Not even doing wr's/secondary/skill positions. My point? We have had enormously talented individuals being recruited that can play ball in the league. Most other schools don't have that problem. Now that that 09 class is gone, you will see less and less go because the talent is not there like before.
The recruiting class this year while good and probably top 5 is still a disappointment. We are relying on out of state blue chips instead of ones in our own fricking back yard. WHY?
LSU fans ridicule LSU and miles more then anyone. That is why.
