Man, we were talking about this exact situation Saturday at the game. Good luck to you Chad. I can't wait to see that nasty curve ball again!

One of the true greats- a national championship ring in football and baseball.

How many other athletes in LSU history can claim national championships in two sports?

Edited to add: Jared Mitchell.

How could I forget?

That was awesome. Seems like I remember he hit the guy so hard he not only rang the Moo State backs bell but his own as well! Would probably be an illegal hit now.

What are u talking about? Hes a lefty, his left leg is fricked. Pitchers use their legs, where do u think the power comes from?

If gms and coaches didnt give him a shot because they worried about contact, i can understand. But if its about the strength of the leg, hes gonna have a hard time pitching.

No knock on chad, this is truly amazing regardless if he plays ptofessional spirts or not.

You're wrong boss. He lost his amateur status in football.

quote:

He has an eligibility clock that starts when he enrolled in school. To my knowledge it is 5 years to play 4.
This is correct.

There is no chance Chad Jones will come back to LSU.

Good luck to Chad with his baseball career though.

5 to play 4 is why. Nothing to do with an agent or whatever. Several guys have been amateur in one and pro in the other.

re: Chad Jones ends football comeback


you get 10 consecutive semesters starting the day you enroll to play 4 seasons. regardless of him going pro in football those 10 semesters have come and gone. there is absolutely no possible way for him to even gain 1 day of eligibility

If I recall correctly, booty actually enrolled THEN played baseball. His clock was ticking while he was playing baseball then he came back for a short football career.

I do not believe that is correct. Booty signed with LSU in Feb. and was drafted by the Marlins in May. He never enrolled at LSU and went straight to the Marlins organization. Plus, he had another year of eligibility left at LSU in 2000, but saw that he would have been competing with Rohan for PT after the Peach Bowl, so he got out while his stock was fairly high (won SEC Offensive POY).

Josh Dworacyck had 10 to play 9 so don't tell me Jones can't play. Josh was a few years from social security when he quit playing.
