[quote]1 year tells me it's a prove it deal. Seems like if we wanted him we could have had him.
Definitely makes Goodwin the most likely route if we do add a vet, which is what I preferred anyway.
One year deal at the vet minimum tells me he wasn't wanted that much by us or anybody ...

[quote]His team manipulated the trade market to try to force him to the Lakers for a shitty trade. He is more full of shite than a port-a-john at the state fair.

The whole point is that you will not be with the big boys until the meat of your class is for the most part your entire class because everybody else will be reloading next year & I don't think y'all will be able to sign 30+ every year.
Have a similar Top 20 with a class of...

[quote]You just can't be this stupid. I didn't manipulate anything. One last time, all I did was take LSUs 20 highest ranked players for this class and added the points given for each player. That total came to 117.1
I then added UTs 20 best players. That total came to 117.3.
So, yes it defi...

I added the points for both Tennessee and LSUs top 20 commits.
Tennessee= 117.3 for an average of 5.865
LSU= 117.1 for an average of 5.855
Just look at the numbers. It's really that simple. UTs class is not quantity over quality. I don't know why that's so har...

Its just a dumb move, if they are that much of a grade risk or if there are better players on your board don't offer them until you know better. It will be a competitive disadvantage to be the school whose offers are not real.
Real Offer >>>>> Offer that may/may not be there on signing day ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: What would you do (Ivy League vs Smaller D-1 or FCS school) - MannyG on 1/30/14 at 4:00 pm|
Biggest question is if he was getting a full ride offer or not. Even if the "needs based package" cover 80% of the costs, 20% of those schools may be too much for many.
Now if he was offered a full ride from these Ivy League schools & he turned it down for Nichols State, then I may have to questi...

Leaning towards the 1st, seeing Jennings & a few of the other younger players will have more of an impact next year.

Tough call. Since there is a possibility of David Wilson being back in the mix for Week 16 & 17 I'll go with Vereen.
I also would have to think about the merits of picking up Bryce Brown just in case LeSean McCoy goes down with an injury. Actually I'm trying to make that very decision....

From 2007-2008 Gramblings funding has gone from 31.6 million to 13.8 million. Roughly a 150% decrease.
Yes, cuts had to be made & a lot of wasteful spending probably occurred, but that is beyond ridiculous. This is where the problem starts. Seems like the plan is basically to cut funding from the...
