As a good ole southern fella, I am glad this kid has made it to the big time. As an individual who was heavily fee-molested by LSU, I'd prefer if they wouldnt show this guy in the jersey where he earned a full ride for little output.

while his time at LSU was not what we hoped it would be, I do appreciate him being a tiger and wish him the best in his pro career.

Hope he becomes every bit of the team leader he was at LSU!
