As American police forces continue toward a trend of becoming more and more militarized; as their power to search, spy, confiscate, detain, and question is expanded beyond the limits of the constitution as originally drafted; I'm glad to see that many in this thread are chiefly concerned with ensuri...

False. It appears that for all of Harris' talent, he is so far behind in knowing what to do, that it will not be possible for him to win the job or be the prohibitive favorite in the spring. Apparently, he has enough to learn that he likely could not be ready to be the starter after fall practices...

He hasn't reached his ceiling. He's gotten better every year at LSU. If the guy figures out how to beat opponents with the pass, he will be a devastating college player (translating into a better pro) and LSU will likely make a sweet 16 run next ...
