Man... hearing the crown jewel of your class say “Roll Tide” is as sickening as it gets.

Idk if it’s worse to see us fall into irrelevance slowly or just all at once.

Honestly I'm not surprised. Saban is a DB kind of coach.

Take the easy route. Don't build something when you can just fall in with the rest.

What is he going to build at LSU? We hired a joke at HC who continues to hire old people past their prime (retirement checks anybody?). But everyone important wanted the marble mouth Cajun as the HC. That hire was a microcosm of how Louisiana has been ran into the ground.

I'm not jumping on the Rome is Burning and We Suck train, but we had no corners in this class, which we definitely needed with early departures to the NFL and losing on Surtain, Jr. and Goodrich doesn't just signal a poor class for this year but what does that say to future 4 and 5 star DBs and other recruits. Disturbing to say the least. We needed strong competitors like that just for the credibility, not to mention likely production. SMH

Front runner with no chest. Tiger Bait!

I don't blame him. LSU has yet to get over the quarterback hurdle and Ogeron's future is in question. He wants to win a championship and Bama has proven to get there over and over again. The kid would rather a title than develop by the best defense coordinator and cornerbacks coach in the country. In my mind, he's tigerbait and there's no need in talking about him.

Get use to it peeps. Until LSU can win against Bama and at least win the west, this will continue. Just sayin..............

Bright side is LSU loses 2 or 3 top recruits every year to LSU. This year it's only 1.
Reply12 months
Yeah, but considering the mediocre recruiting year by LSU standards, this is way worst. We likely finish with the worst recruiting class for LSU in over a decade.

"Their program spits out players into the NFL who never reach their full potential. I want to be a part of that."

They do reach their potential. Just not at LSU.

Tom Brady didn't reach his full potential in college. Joe Flacco. JJ Watt. Peyton Manning. And the list goes on and on.
