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

“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.

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.

I might be done with college football until saban retires. The outcome of the season is known before the first kickoff

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..............

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.

Worst coaching hire in the history of college football!

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

"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.

He and His dad sold out! Wasted LSU's time and recruiting spot. Way to go Surtains. Enjoy being in Bubba Gump land the rest of your lives.

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.
