Beckham was a 4 star everywhere and one of the top players in Louisiana. He played as a true freshman.
Rashard Robinson was a 4 star as well and was hyped by Patrick Peterson as being the real deal. We couldn't wait for him to get on campus and he started playing right away....

A River Runs Through It - GREAT movie. Read the book by Norman MacLean as well. Excellent writing. Brad Pitt - his first great role.
Legends of the Fall - another really great movie. It doesn't get the credit it deserves because of the romance angle and Brad Pitt making all the women swoon, but i...

Yes, that's right. Alley transferred after the injury.
So, I think it is Shyrone Carey. That is over a decade ago.
Every LSU running back over the past decade (since 2003) who started and finished at LSU ended up getting a legitimate shot with an NFL team by making it to camp and sticking aro...

I mean, play for LSU, get carries, and then not get a shot in the NFL or get invited to camp.
It seems like that EVERY LSU RB gets his shot in the NFL. I was thinking Richard Murphy, with the injuries and all, but I think that he went to camp and stuck around for a couple of years.
The point ...

Still wondering what happened to the $800 billion stimulus (or whatever it was) in 2009 that was supposed to go to "shovel ready projects" to rebuild roads and bridges and other infrastructure needs.
Oh, and since we have not had a Federal Budget since then, that money continues to be rolled ove...
