| LSU Recruiting|| Any chance LSU signs a surprise running back? - FredSecunda on 2/3/13 at 10:38 am|
I could see this happening in light of our decreased depth at running back with Ware and Ford gone, and with Magee making the switch to WR. We all know LSU planned to not take a RB is the hopes of going all in for Leonard Fournette. This was a good plan if we had a stable of running backs returning....

Now it just seems pretentious and none of the characters are very likable, except for the main character kid. Though maybe that is the point and they are not supposed to be l...
