| Tiger Rant|| re: Kragthorpe now 3rd string? - mike4lsu on 9/6/14 at 10:46 am|
Look I think if Jennings and Harris were to both go down, I think we put in one of the skill players, likely Magee, Diarse, Durral and run a wild cat before we put in any of the walk ons under center. So the third string QB is not of much consequence this year....

Prevents the other from transfering. If either one transfers, we will be left with no scholarship QB if the starter goes down....

Actually, if you look at graduation rates of African American student athletes vs. White American student athletes, you would find that white graduation rates are significantly higher.
The same is true for women athletes vs. men athletes. This is largely because men are more likely to leave earl...

Does it not make you worried that we are going into the 2014 season with only two quarterbacks, one a sophomore who has played on game and one drive and true freshman who has not played a down of college football?
What happens if Jennings goes down, all we have is a true freshman with zero colleg...

There is way too much parity in college baseball today. I mean there are 296 division one college baseball teams and anyone can beat anyone. If Kennesaw State ( apologies for the wrong spelling ) can advance to a super regional and Stony Brooks to the College World Series, there is a lot of parity b...

Will Mett be able to attend the NFL combine now that his acl is torn. What happens to his draft stock if he cannot attend the combine.
This story on Mett makes me sad. Mett has more talent than Matt Flynn and Matt Mauck and had a better work ethic than Jamarcus Russell. He had all it takes to suc...

The guy might take the LSU job just to comit a recruiting violation that lands us in probation. That is the extent...
