[quote]Hate to tell you man.... If you truly have plantar fasciitis then soles are not going to fix it. When home stay off of it as much as possible and look up plantar fasciitis exercises on a orthopedic website. One really common one is using a tennis ball to "massage" your foot by rolling it ...

No disrespect meant Chicken, and I'm not disagreeing with your post, however I prefer to address this with the very root core of our problems...Retention.
If retention of our best players can be addressed and remedied, most if not all of our other problems will become much more minor.
I agree ...

The solution to most....if not ALL of our problems would seem to be retention of our Top Talent.
I saw this on another thread and it makes perfect sense. Saban and Bama have retained most if not all of the top talent they have. LSU hasn't. Address this problem and a huge amount of our problems...
