I'm just guessing here. But wouldn't the top players on clubs like Bayern, Chelsea, Arsenal, Barca, etc. have a relegation clause in their contracts in the catastrophic, unlikely event such clubs were relegated? I could see the Alexis Sanchezes, Luis Suarezes, etc. ... the top stars on the top...

I got my Masters at UL. I love the university and love Lafayette. Attending LSU in a PhD program is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.

ER played at about 310 in high school. I can understand getting him into condition to play the college game, but 250 lbs. at over 7 ft tall is pretty thin. Sure, you want him to be more maneuverable, but he's never going to be a David Robinson. ER is what he is, a classic post-up center that you ...View Topic - Replies (11)

For me, I'll use Dale Brown's example. In his 25 years, he got LSU to the postseason 60 percent of the time. Yes, two of the fourteen years were NIT bids, but I will count them, since it was harder to make the NCAA's in the early 80's. I'm not going to be biased and remove the first years when...View Topic - Replies (7)
