re: My problem with the Elliott Porter Suspension-ncaa related - RichardT
What if this was Alabama paying a player a couple of thousand a month to house sit? Would you think the NCAA has no business looking into it and the player had a right to earn whatever he could? This board would go ballistic demanding the player be declared ineligible. Let it play out until ...

re: are they letting the media watch practice? - RichardT
I think they only let them watch the first 20 or 30 minutes. They get to see a few drills but that's about it. There is always a press conference following practice which is what most of them are really there for....

re: Why are College Football Players leaving so early - RichardT
[quote]If the players value is 500,000 in revenue to the athletic department then pay them a percentage of that and let them pay for everything else themselves. MLB pays players at 18 if there good enough and gives them bonuses to come and develop in the minor league system. I don't see why coll...

re: Diamond Dave chimes in on the Washington Commitment - RichardT
Someone should ask him how come Noel Ellis, his proclaimed "best DB in Louisiana" couldn't get playing time on the worse defense in the SEC last year. At the same time TWO true freshman CBs started that 31-10 arse kicking LSU gave Texas A&M. Looks to me the LSU coaches knew what they were doing...

re: Did Bama offer a greyshirt to Hootie? was that why he decomitted? - RichardT
[quote] if I recall correctly, during a period that the staff could not call him at all per rules!![/quote] That is not accurate. Phone calls from coaches to players are allowed during a dead period. The only thing banned is face to face contact with the recruit or his family. Phone calls, e-m...

re: Try to predict our secondary next season - RichardT
[quote]Why does Paris get the nod over Thomas or Mills or even Collins? Or even Voohies? [/quote] Couple of reasons..... Voorhies is a safety, not a cornerback. Mills will likely stay at safety. Collins lost his starting job to a true freshman so I'm thinking the coaches don't have a lot o...

re: Brandon Harris (FR) vs Anthony Jennings (SO) - QB battle to ensue - RichardT
Just my opinion, but anyone thinking a true freshman is going to come in to the SEC West the way it is today and do well is setting themselves up for disappointment. ...

re: Try to predict our secondary next season - RichardT
How about this..... Robinson & White at the corners when there are 4 DBs in the game. Fifth man in is Paris and he goes to corner while White takes on the "honey bager" role causing havoc from any number of spots on the field. Just a thought.....

[quote]I completely understand but why wait so long if it's a forgone conclusion,give LSU time to fill the spot with a quality player.[/quote] You're assuming the LSU coaching staff doesn't know his intentions. That may or may not be true. I'm sure they want him to stick to his commitment but I...

If Hootie wants to be a Tiger as bad as some here suggest maybe he can take a greyshirt. He can sit out the fall semester and report January of 2015 and count against the '15 class....

re: Hootie just decommitted (CONFIRMED) - RichardT
I believe that if J. Adams commits to LSU Hootie will be out. I don't think we take both. Strictly a numbers thing. When Hootie committed to bama LSU turned its attention elsewhere and there is only room for one more DB. Just my opinion. ...
