| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Antonio Blakeney (Hoops 5 star SG) - Trends moving LSU's direction - b rod lsu on 7/31/14 at 8:54 am|
Of the group we continually talk about, who is for certain signing in the fall and spring?
I know Simmons and Thomas are signing in November, and Sampson is signing in the spring. Do we have any definitive plans for Blakeneny and Dickerson, or either of the Aussies?...

Also, Trey, Asdrubal has got to be gone now right?...

I've heard him mention Louisville and Kentucky before, so I'm not surprised there. FSU has ACC appeal, close proximity and a good HC, so that's also not surprising. We have recruited him harder than anyone (by his own account), so I'd venture to say that's your top 4 in no particular order. Ken...

My only complaint is that Capone was indicted and tried in 1931. So if they stay accurate to dates, we jump past his more notorious years in leadership, the St Valentine's Day Massacre, and almost all of his back and forth with The Untouchables. I guess what we can expect from Capone this season...

It's improving, but still not as nice as what Bama has. I'm sure when the Kyle Field construction is done that will be nicer than TS also. We'd have to seriously overhaul the original bowl to be on par with those two stadiums. We're definitely moving in the right direction, though....

Half of the guys that get picked in the lottery won't be NBA ready. That's why the league is in the worst shape it's ever been in.
