re: Gerald Willis names top 3


Speed at QB has always given Bama problems..I mean Jordan Jefferson led LSU to more than one win against them if only because he could break free from pressure in the pocket

LSU's more built to play against a spread offense that goes with the tempo A&M does. We stay in base and nickel pretty much the entire game..don't really need to sub for packages or anything, and there's more speed that can go sideline to sideline, even at defensive end.

By far the best DL in the state of La, I don't care what nobody says, if you witnessed the championship you would agree, CONGRADULATIONS Gerald Willis III a unbelievable game to watch. I'm on my way to the 5a championship game hopefully the Rummel vs Barbe game will be just as entertaining as the 4a championship. LSU has to keep this kid in the state.

. If and when A&M shows they can win a championship you can throw it in my face


I don't know if they will win a championship, but I don't judge an offense as success or unsuccessful based solely on if they win a championship. That type of all or nothing thinking maybe why you don't get my point about a kid going to Miami. Miami will not be good obviously, especially compared to their past and LSU's present over the next few years. But not to be a dick either , but you are simply wrong if you think that a player hurts his chances of making the NFL from there just because they are not as good. There will be fewer Miami players drafted, but that does not hurt the chances of any one individual player from being drafted. Even under sanctions they will probably not be as bad as LSU was from 89-94 and we still had guys drafted in that time frame, just not as many as now obviously.

Well thats just, like, your opinion, man

Really though it has NOTHING to do with Miami being "down" in the sense that they're losing a bunch of games, or even that they have less exposure than they once did. You're right, if you're good enough the NFL is going to find you, regardless of where you go.

You're wrong though in not understanding that how a program is run has an effect on the development of a player.

Take it to a more extreme scenario than LSU vs Miami. Let's say a prospect has an offer from LSU but chooses, for example, Ball State. Do you think his chances of receiving the proper coaching, motivation to become better via competition (earning your way onto the field), and strength and conditioning are not better at LSU? And do you think that has zero impact on his development as a player and subsequenly his draft status?

If you acknowledge that LSU over Ball State is a no brainer, then by extension you have to acknowledge that at the moment LSU is a better place to develop as a player than Miami. Only the margin is, obviously, much smaller.

Other factors come into play. Miami will more than likely have sanctions coming at them soon. There is a likelihood that Al Golden will fail there and get canned, and if he succeeds then there is just as great a chance of a bigger, better program hiring him. New coaches can come in, changes to the current system can be made that are to the detriment of current players (this is particularly important for offensive players), coaches recruit "their guys." Contrast that to LSU where Les Miles just signed a 7-year extension. A prospect can sign here today and be assured that the program that is in place right now will be nearly identical to the one he graduates from in 4 years.

This is approaching TLDR so I'll hang up and listen. And I'm not saying this as an LSU homer because I'll admit that Ed Reed and Reggie Wayne made very good decisions when they chose Miami instead of LSU back in the 90's. At that time, it was a much better place to develop. The opposite holds true today.

If he's smart he will deside on his school as soon as he knows where he wants to go and doesn't play games. He will garner alot of respect for his family from the state by doing this. All in all I hope he picks LSU.

Moving to the SEC has truly catapulted A&M into a new level of recruiting


Man I was just thinking this , one year ago the Aggies were not even on the map. I can see them being a bigger player with La players than Bama soon. What a difference a year can make.

re: Gerald Willis names top 3


Last year AM only signed like 16 kids. The SEC has given AM the stage to become the big dog in Texas and I will give it to them they have risen to the occasion. Their coach is really good
