"He recruited Shaq, Vernel. We came to LSU because of Johnny Jones."


quote:

"These fans haven't been in that locker room and they don't understand what Johnny Jones means," Ceasar said. "I could have gone to a lot of places, but I came to LSU because of Johnny Jones. When he came to recruit me, he made me feel like the prettiest girl at the prom.

"He recruited all of us. He recruited Shaq. He recruited Vernel (Singleton). He brought us all in.We came to LSU because of Johnny Jones."

Why can't he get a better gig than North Texas if he's such a great recruiter?

Um,ol' Clarence didn't exactly set the world on fire.

Dale recruited Shaquille. Everyone knows that except Clarence.

Did Clarence tutor Morris Claiborne for the Wonderlink?

I don't know. Why can't Nick Saban get a better job than Toledo?

That was awesome 20 years ago. It's 2012 now and he has been stuck at North Texas for 10 years.

I've never seen so many former players/coaches push for a guy this hard. This is all really bizarre to me.

Looks like he might get a bigger gig...

I will be happy with whoever as long as they win. Enough players seem to want him. I like his coaching style. I dont really care where he has coached as long as he coaches well.

I think Clarence weighs about 400 pounds these days.

And is probably just looking for some PR love.

Well he turned around their program and might have figured after watching Trent send the program in a tailspin to bide his time.

The one thing I like about possibly bringing in Jones is that I believe he and Randy Livingston would make a hell of a recruiting team.

The Shaq comment totally discredits ALL of his comments.

Some people fit culturally better in some places than others.

Louisiana is a different place and people who know him best think he's a great fit.

I give zero fricks that people on tigerdroppings disagree.
