[quote]No matter how you want to spin it, Patterson was our second choice at QB in this class. Franks was already committed by the time he got his offer from LSU. I guess the family didn't like that.[/quote]
Actually, I think family did play a big part, not only his brother, but his dad as well! ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Why did Patterson chose OM over LSU? - LSU2THEMAX on 2/17/15 at 5:07 pm|
1. Was he afraid of the competition with Franks or maybe Harris or Jennings?
2. Did LSU coaches cool on him?
3. Was his brother Sean disappointed with LSU?
4. Was Shea more impressed with OM coaches?
5. Does he not like Cajun coeds? If so, he is crazy!
6. Did someone at LSU hurt his feel...

For those who have Directv, they are not a "participating provider", however they have announced that they will be in the program around the end of February or early March. Of course the first 13 games of the season will all be on SEC Network+, so they need to close the deal with WatchESPN asap!
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anthony Jennings - LSU2THEMAX on 2/7/15 at 1:24 pm|
I also noticed that, almost without exception, he makes a quick glance toward the receiver of choice just before the ball is snapped. I don't know if this is still his tendency at LSU, but in the SEC, the DB's will drool over that.
The result will likely be a tightly covered receiver, possibly do...

[quote]Do you think Kenny Hilliard is an elite RB?[/quote]
Actually, I do think Hilliard is an elite RB. He is a power back, not necessarily a cutter, but I think he will excel in the pros. Power backs seem to do better in the NFL than in college. More one-on-one rather than gang tackling. Eas...

WTF? Brossette is the Louisiana career yardage leader at 8703 yds, breaking Hillard's record and beating Cecil Collins by 871 yds.
How is that not elite?...

2. If so, will he be practicing with the team starting this month?

4. Or for that matter, will he have to sit out the whole 2015-2016 season?...

HUDL says he is 6'3" 185 lbs. If that is true, that is a big difference vs. 6'1" 170.

No comparison to the competition he faces in college.
Maybe Jennings is an example of the Peter Principle. "A person rises to his level of incompetence".
Or maybe the coaches are screwing with his mind and he has become a victim of "fear of failure".
Or maybe the coaches have been doing th...
| Tiger Rant|| Coaches afraid of turnovers? - LSU2THEMAX on 11/17/14 at 8:49 am|
I believe the LSU coaches think Jennings is likely to be more careful than Harris with his throws, hence throw less interceptions.
It is obvious Jennings hesitates too long on deeper pass patterns, hence extra pressure, sacks, poor throws, and scrambles by Jennings.
Do the coaches not realize ...
