He's probably one of the most respected and well known ambassador of any university. I'm really having trouble coming up with a valid comparison.. Maybe Jack Nicklaus for OSU, but Shaq is a much more "modern" entity. ...

Since we are, and have always been, a run first team, then the answer is yes. With the stoute O-Line, questions at QB, and inexperienced WR corps, LF will play a significant role on this years team.
We'll need at least a credible threat in Dupre and Quinn to keep the backfield honest and aware of ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: What does it say about our QB situation when 3 QBs transfer - tgerb8 on 7/14/14 at 4:06 pm|
It says we tried to patch some holes with the weak play we'd had at qb lately. Those didn't work out and now they are/were passed by younger players who we plan on building around instead of just "inserting" into a gameplan.
I'm a little dissapointed with Rettig leaving but Rivers was always a pro...

If 30 yards and 1 TD don't mean you're better, then LSU beats up on ND in '12 and bama is just an afterthought.
