Regardless, this sucks
Not sure what is such a big downer....
We pretty much expected to lose Mo and probably RR. Brockers is a loss and a surprise... but we can work through that with depth and recruiting.
The rest have pretty much all been non-factors --- so them taking themselves off the roster is essentially "normal attrition" I'd say.
This is NOT a major defection and the house is on fire kind of thing.
We have at least 1 "decommit" from OOS each year (as do MOST programs) -- the extra space on the roster actually gives us 2012 and perhaps 2013 recruiting opportunities.
Look at the brightside... when it's all said and done we will finish in the top 10 +/- in recruiting and we'll enter the season in the top 10 as well... we will be one of the favorites to win the SEC West and if we are successful we could well find ourselves with Back to Back SEC Championships and BCS NCG births.... not so shabby.
The "future" is still awfully bright for LSU football.... don't dispair.
