You must want guys like Jacob Hester - who exemplified "bleeding Purple and Gold" as much as anyone. Well, except that he had initially committed to the Longhorns (before going back on his word, and switching to LSU). :lol:...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The Jalen Collins Effect - kevlanmei on 2/23/15 at 8:24 am|
Jalen Collins redshirted in 2011 - so he spent a full 4 years at LSU. IMO, "leaving after a redshirt junior season" does not equate to "leaving early"....

Personally, I consider Wanogho the most likely LSU signee out of all the guys who are not currently committed to LSU. In fact, I think his intention to sign with LSU was the key domino that persuaded Valentine-Okeke to commit to us....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Feleipe Franks Appreciation Thread - kevlanmei on 1/24/15 at 8:19 am|
I agree completely with the OP (and others that are echoing his opinion).
It's fine to have threads about Patterson - he is an LSU recruit. But when folks post (in those thread) that he is the most-important LSU recruit in Miles' tenure, it's not just hyperbole - it is also a direct slap in the ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Recruiting Trail Updates - kevlanmei on 1/23/15 at 9:57 pm|
Yep, this mindset (of not "needing" the best DB in the class just because we have other position more of a concern) is what caused the Portland Trailblazers to pass on Michael Jordan - seeing as how they already had future HOFer Clyde Drexler at Jordan's position, and a dire need for a center.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Here is a look at the Class of 2016 - kevlanmei on 1/12/15 at 10:30 am|
Personally, I love the potential of the D-Tackle out of Killeen. Super raw right now, but with proper guidance, he could turn into a really dynamite player. Sure, there is "bust" potential - but this is a risk I would take (particularly if we can also get 2 of the other 4).
Not sure how others ...

I'm not sure if you and I are in a semantics issue (a difference in definitions) - or if we just genuinely disagree.

I don't post much, so take anything I type with a huge grain of salt. I am no insider.
But I think Dodd will be a very good player for us. In fact, if Alexander and Hawkins both go to the NFL next season (as many fear), there are three guys that I have pencilled in as starters in 2015:
| Tiger Rant|| re: Post your predictions for starters : Free Safety and Right Guard - kevlanmei on 8/7/14 at 10:05 am|
I would guess:
- Thompson at free safety. Of course, he needs to be healthy. But if so, I expect him to start (with Mills at strong safety).
- At RG, I know most expect it to be between the two redshirt seniors. But IMO:
--- if Pocic proves to be one of the best 5 O-Linemen (which I think ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: When Will You Know if This Season Is Going to Be Special or Bumpy Ride? - kevlanmei on 8/1/14 at 7:38 am|
My main fear is how well we can defend the run. Period. Three teams in particular:
I think that is going to be the #1 factor in determining where we stack up at the end of the season.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Shreveport QB prospects - kevlanmei on 7/30/14 at 8:01 pm|
Since other non-Shreveport boys have been listed, when it came to pure QB ability - I doubt many were any more blessed than Bob Lane. Coming out of Neville in 1977, he was rated as the:
- #3 QB in the country
- #4 safety in the country
- #4 shortstop in the country
He signed with LSU, but qui...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Shreveport QB prospects - kevlanmei on 7/26/14 at 10:42 pm|
As mentioned above, the name you are looking for is James Harris. And I admit I do not know Harris' life biography, so perhaps he was born in Shreveport. I do not know.
But he played his high school ball at Carroll. This I know as fact, because he was idolized on the southside of town when I w...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Will Blackwell bashing Les and LSU on Twitter - kevlanmei on 7/24/14 at 4:00 pm|
And no one in this thread has even mentioned the main reason this is traitorous:
Remember that Blackwell came to LSU as a D-Lineman. And after a couple of years, he was mired deep in the depth chart. Had he stayed there, he would have likely ended up a career backup.
But Miles recognized tha...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Looks like we're dropping for Torrance Gibson - kevlanmei on 5/12/14 at 8:00 pm|
Saying that Gibson isn't important (or that he might have lost interest in LSU) because of Jennings, Harris, and/or Rettig is a little silly.
It's like saying that Daylon Mack isn't really so desirable because we have 6 freshmen DTs that will be ahead of him - like Bain, Gilmore, Herron, Lealaima...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: OL Recruiting 2015 Edition (Grand Slam) - kevlanmei on 2/27/14 at 6:16 pm|
If the o-line recruiting goes like I see it possibly unfolding, LSU could end up with 6 o-line signees for 2015 - none of them from Louisiana.
It's a brave new world......
