IMO 2 things need to happen:
Eliminate the one & done - same as baseball, three year minimum
Institute the Mark Cuban proposed serious NBA developmental league.
Gives the youngsters a choice coming out of high school, commit to an NBA career or commit to an eduction & basketball. If a coll...

Agree with the comments about individualism in the interview, typical NFL attitude & perspective. Yes, you have to be better than the other guy, but that is the same at each & every position.

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Full cost of attendance stipend - Tigerntx on 2/9/15 at 7:44 am|
Would be curious to know if this was discussed with the youngsters or if they inquired this season. Guessing many do not even know about the stipend.
Will this become an issue in the future? With cost of living adjustments across the country, the amount could vary a lot.
Any idea the value of...

A takeoff on an earlier thread - let's keep it closer to home, Monkey Hill in the park
For starters, a lot of greats do not make the cut.
Pete Maravich - Best ever
Billy Cannon - Heisman
Dave Dixon - Superdome
Drew Brees - Modern era representative
Jim Taylor - The tough last choice, HOF ...

Transfers coming - without a QB, maybe more than we can anticipate - to much talent to be sitting the bench - IMO not if, but when - difficult to get my head around the fact that with an OC of this caliber, need for a QB & our OL/WR depth & skill, we do not our choice of the top talent ...

If memory serves, Mike Leach @ TT had a new senior starting QB like four or five years that had seen the field only for mop up - each set NCAA records breaking the previous guy's record - may be difficult for the youngsters, or in this case some coaches, in this day and age, to accept the fact that ...

One opinion from an athlete's Dad that traveled the road years ago:
Looks like they are putting in the time, effort & $ required for a kid that is not a Fournette type. Guessing the geography and level of competition are a factor for this youngster.
Harsh reality is a lot of developable talen...
