No plate on the table in the boot! In other words, dine at the Huddle House in Tuscaloosa!

Favorite part of this whole situation was when Jarvis Landry called Surtain, Jr a "groupie". The kid's quotes only strengthen J. Landry's statement. ON the bright side, we should never want a player on our team that has ever considered going to Bama. We are adversaries. They take their guys and we take ours and we will see them on the first Saturday in November. This is what rivalry looks like. Let's get some wins!

Rivalry might be a little strong. Big game? Sure. We're gonna have our hands full with Georgia and Auburn. Anyway, It was pretty common knowledge last night Bama had surtain. At least in Alabama it was.

Tony Brown won’t sniff the NFL either. Hope he enjoys sec with his sister in Alabama. It’s essentially a sport there.

As opposed to playing in front of classy people like you who call him a criminal and thug? Riiiight.

They didn't waste LSU's time! This kid has been sold on LSU for a very long time! I know this to be a fact personally. At the end of the day, until LSU starts regularly competing or at least being in the Championship discussion. We can expect to lose out on very high caliber players!

Wow, that quote is awful. No love for the university or coach, just for a trophy. Hope he ends up on the Browns if he makes it to the NFL, lol.

LSU has officially started the Miami, Texas, Nebraska and Tennessee fall! It was fun while it lasted.

I mean, can you really blame the kid? I'd want to play for the greatest college football coach of all time too if I had the opportunity.

Some people like to be a part of building something and not just stepping into what's already there.

This kid really showed no heart. Following the standard instead of making his own path? I hope he never plays a down.

Blame a coach that PS committed to!?!?!? That’s almost as dumb as taking the easy path. Why kids don’t want to make their own way is beyond me. Earn your stripes. I hope miles picks on that kid every play

“They win championships” And this is why all of you who cheer for a conference instead of just LSU are morons. Or maybe this is considered a victory to you? I mean, at least he stayed in the SEC, right? SEC!SEC!SEC! Idiots.
Reply17 days
I don't know of anyone who has cheered for the SEC as a conference in 5years. That was hot 10 years ago.

So you DIDN’T hear all the SEC chants during the bowls and playoffs? Or do you just think none of the SEC!SEC!SEC! types post here? Bet if you bump up some old posts from the playoffs you’ll find plenty who wanted one or both SEC teams to make the championship, and a bunch who were thrilled with the all SEC final.

Nothing wrong cheering for SEC when it's not against LSU.
