[quote]Looks like they're jumping ship.[/quote]
Ware & Ford are jumping ship to the NFL because they couldn't start for LSU.
Wing is jumping ship because he may not be eligible anymore and he had proven everything in college that he's going to prove. Besides, he's almost 23 yrs old.

With absolutely no pass rush, they're probably about equal. In real game situations where a QB must actually move in the pocket and occasionally scramble, there is no comparison.
Bridgewater's footwork was great....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Players shouldn't be able to leave early. - The_Pistol on 1/3/13 at 5:02 pm|
It's funny how many people think the OP's premise is ridiculous, but wholeheartedly support the NCAA's collusion with the NFL to lock players out unless they're 3-yrs removed from HS.
Force them to stay 4 yrs? LUDICROUS!
Let them leave after two? LUDICROUS!...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Safety #1 - The_Pistol on 1/3/13 at 10:38 am|
I can't see a team using a 1st rd pick on him. His biggest asset is hard-hitting run support. When teams need help in run support, they draft in the front 7, not a safety....

A weak arse schedule has ALWAYS been the way to win a MNC. History has shown that top teams only get challenged about 4 times per season. Sometimes, so-called champions only play one real opponent.
It tarnishes the championship trophy when it isn't earned. That's the biggest problem with colleg...

He was obviously trying to suppress rage. He was pissed at a reporter for crapping on an otherwise special day for R. Shepard. In his rage, he realized he was detracting the positive attention that should have gone to his seniors on their night. I don't fault him one bit for rambling a bit.

If LSU throws it around the yard like a lot of fans want to see, LSU loses a lot more than 2 out of their past 22 games.
Botton line is that the gameplan is great if you win and poor when you don't. The consistently conservative gameplans have been just fine...with two exceptions....

Coming off a national championship season, Nick Saban took his team on the road to play a talented team, a team largely comprised of the same players he had been embarrassed the year before on his march to glory. Early into the ensuing season, this talented team appeared to be still suffering a han...

This hasn't been entirely true. There has been separation on several deep throws. Unfortunately, those are low-percentage passes, and either WR's haven't made the play on the ball or the pass has been errant....
