re: Underrated Recruit That LSU Missed Out On Recently That You Really Wanted - scottynola
He wasn't underrated and it's been a few years but one guy I wonder about sometimes is Akiem Hicks. His recruitment blew up and he ended up in Canada, but from the way he looks in the NFL he would have been a big time player at LSU. Always need another great D-Lineman you know. ...

re: Should we?? Alex Mack - Center - scottynola
The only way for this to happen is to negotiate a sign and trade type arrangement with the Browns.

Basically the Saints would have to negotiate a deal ...

re: Four more players leave football team. How many scholarships do we have now? - scottynola
I saw that on NOLA.com and came over here to check and see if anyone had comments on how it might effect recruiting. It opens up extra scholly's, and I think this is a good sign. I kind of read the tea leaves on which athletes are being recruited heavily, and compare that to remaining scholly's a l...

Coaching only gets you so far, imo. Same with nature, honestly. If you look at NFL players they all have the genetic potential to develop the kind of bodies the NFL requires.

The best athletes can go three and out. If you want LSU to have the best athletes, then expect more three and outs. It should be a point of pride that we get more guys to the NFL quicker than other teams, and as a result there are more opportunities for talented young players to get on the field an...
