Because we know that Miles and Chief won't play younger players. :rolleyes:...
| Tiger Rant|| re: John Chavis Says Welter Had One of the Better Springs He Has Seen - GOP_Tiger on 6/25/14 at 8:58 pm|
If Welter has added 10 pounds of muscle without losing any speed, he could be a lot better for us. Part of his problem, especially early in the season, was just getting dragged for extra yards when making tackles.
It's very good news that a Tiger is improving and becoming a better player. The f...

All the character questions are exponentially more important when you are talking about the QB position.
We've seen the damage done to the program by poor decisions on the part of Ryan Perilloux and (to a much lesser extent) by Jordan Jefferson. Les isn't going to take this guy; I doubt we would...

It's well past time to get rid of this pretended distinction. Last time that I checked, there were plenty of pro QBs who can run.
Imagine if the services rated "pass-rushing" DEs and "run-stopping" DEs. Both skills factor into a DE's...

Coaching matters. A lot. And LSU has good coaches who will prepare you for the NFL.
I don't want to start another debate about the value of the recruiting services, but Texas signed the 3rd ranked class in 2010 and, four years later, just had zero players drafted by the NFL.
