There is always concern if you do not take a QB in 1 class. That pipeline has to keep moving. It looks like you are in great shape for 3-4 years to come and that can unravel quickly. In 2006 LSU looked loaded,...

One thing I'm curious about with the murder of Emmet and Leeann is will the FBI ever get involved? Will the cops search their house and find something? The Jennings have stuff hidden that would raise questions and would they realize they can find no trace of Emmet and Leeann's existence prior to a...
