A better question is why would you come out to earn a payday for yourself and your family and then screw it up royally by doing drugs?
Anthony Johnson is a life lesson for every other 4 and 5 star on the team. Lesson #1 - the NFL doesn't care about your rivals profile. People's bodies change in...

Houston is a very spread out city. The hotels by Reliant Stadium are not great and there is nothing to do over there but the tailgate/game. Downtown Houston has nicer hotels but it too is pretty dead on the weekend. Best area would be the Galleria area, at least for dinner/night life....

Very possibly. I probably put him at OT because we are so thin there.
We REALLY need the line to stay healthy next year and we need two or three OTs in the 2015 recruiting class. We're started off right with the Teuhema kid!

[quote]Harris behind Jennings[/quote]
You might be right. My theory here is that with the QB position, experience is really important and if Jennings got hurt in the first quarter, I expect Les would send in Rivers.
Now, Harris could light it up in the Spring and change the whole picture. Of...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Pre-Spring Depth Chart - Mike Linebacker on 2/6/14 at 2:46 pm|
I should have clarified that this is my shot at opening game starters (my opinion) prior to spring practice. I think Fournette is the main RB with Magee as the change of pace and Hilliard used situationally. Obviously, Hilliard and Magee will fight it out this spring to see who is the "incumbent" ...

WR - Dural, Leslie, Peterson, Upchurch

This does have an air of desperation to it. Although I think part of that is the reports that he is on the same return flight and he is staying at the same hotel. I seriously doubt those have any validity. So if this is a fortuitous coincidence, lucky us. But I really hope we aren't playing games...

It seems as though Les Miles and LSU have faired very well with out of state recruits. After 1/2, they got reengaged with some big time recruits and are securing at least visits. That speaks volumes to the perception and respect that Les and LSU command nationally.
In recent years, we are sig...
