[quote]LSU had another tremendous punt returner named Craig Burns just prior to Grezaffi that I don't see his name anywhere when great punt returners are mentioned. He broke several for TD's and/or long punt returns. I think he was a teammate of Bevan at Baton Rouge High as well.[/quote]
| Tiger Rant|| re: Were Mike Anderson, Bevan, Grezaffi, & Davis really that talented? - kjacksonp on 5/12/13 at 1:47 pm|
I recall that a few years after Bevan graduated and went on to law school and finished, he was representing an LSU player (forgot who) that was trying to get on the Houston Oilers (Tenn. Titans). Sports Illustrated carried a short note about Houston's response to the effect that they had no interes...

My parents met there. Both graduated from there and my Dad taught there for over 30 years and was Distinguished Alumni Professor of the year back in the mid 70's.
Went to home games beginning at age 6, graduated from there and from med school in Shreveport.

I sat in the south upper deck for the Bert Jones to Brad Davis throw. South upper deck has been there since I was a child in the 50's.
In that era LSU faculty could buy season tickets for 4 in the upper deck for a dollar per ticket.

Duke, which cannot compete often in football in the ACC would be a total loss in the SEC. Why would they even think about it?
They are a national power in BB regardless of conference affiliation so why drag your FB team into a conference beyond their reach?
