Really, a FRESHMAN decides he will stay for another year. Wow! Could we just not waste our time on them if we learn they are just using LSU and the scholarship money for a one year display of their talents? Hopefully Florida will serve as a model of how to win championships. Sick of the one and ...

With all of our underclassmen losses over the past few years, there was a ray of hope there for awhile. But now, to be honest, I see us schluffing through another year, anywhere from 8-4 to 10-2. Not too bad I guess but hard to get excited about....
