Yeah, I'm drunk, but hear me out.
If recruits want to be joyless robots schooled in the process, they know what school to go to.
That's not what LSU is all about. It never was and never will be. Sure, we teach the fundamentals but LSU is all about passion, passion, passion. The Honey Badger...

Damned near lost to UCF.
Needed a huge 4th quarter comeback and OT to beat Mizzou.

A few years back, Sports Illustrated did a pretty extensive fan survey that polled fans of teams from all the conferences.
