I seem to remember his dad saying something to the effect that he left Louisiana (LSU) to get away from a criminal element.
Guess he didn't get far enough away !...

Sorry to hear -
I played golf with him once in a tournament when he was coaching here at LSU. He was a super nice guy and a lot of fun to be around.
Prayers sent to his family and close friends....

I remember reading an article a month into the NFL season by some NFL guru that said the solution to the Oakland Raider's problems was for them to back up a Brink's truck at Kevin Sumlin's house and don't leave until he says yes !!!!!...

And while we are discussing statues....please explain why Shaq has a statue and Pete Maravich doesn't ?
I love Shaq (did I just write that) and the way he reps LSU and his place in the game, but Pistol Pete is a legitimate candidate for the greatest player of all time !

Don't get rid of it. Learn how to use it and just start playing around with. Learn about the different editing software available.
You use a Go Pro just about everywhere and you can get hooked...work, vacation, parties, hunting & fishing...you name it.

I, like most people my age, have regrets.
But the advice I give to young people now is your dreams are a lot easier to achieve than you think. Yes, you will have to work hard but as you pursue them you will find people along the way that are willing to help if you stay honest and earnest.

[quote]They need to find a way to discourage kids from declaring early. Most of these guys who have a chance at the NFL come from poor families looking to get money. It's hard to compete with that. I'd love to see the NFL step up with a bonus program for kids who obtain their degrees.[/quote]
