It's not close, and if I had to pick one non-QB player to start a team with, it would be hard not to choose Peterson who I consider the best overall athlete in the league along with megatron. Peterson can effect the game at all three phases O, D and ST.
Only argument against him would be Megatron...

Looks more like a conditioning problem for the big guys!!! They seem to hold their own in the first half, but fade down the stretch on both ends of the court. It may be a substitution issue or just a conditioning issue, but JOB and both JMs looked too tired to even foul anybody.
Guards didn't look...

What is your opinion of Guardian life insurance?
It seems good when I research it. I purchased Guardian WL from a friend when he was getting started. I argued with his manager that I could buy cheap term and invest the difference, but the pros of WL make sense to me....

No, he hasn't. While we are big fans of LSU sports in general, we haven't made a game at the PMAC this year. Life has us bottled up, but would love to get him up to BR to see a game next year and possibly meet Andre in the future. I feel like I've watched Andre and cheered for him to shoot 3's for a...

Don't post much, but thought I would let you know that my son (4 years old) has watched a few games with me, and for some reason attached himself to #10... In other words loves the guy.

I would prefer Scott Walker with Rand Paul, but that's just me.
