Now we need to finish with 2 more and with the guys coming back, this could look a lot like 2019 if the OC/DC hires are on point! I like some of the names I’m hearing. Let’s nail this down LSU and Coach O! Let’s not leave any stone unturned and get the very best for LSU and the kids that are already here. Let’s get the best 4-3 coach out there and follow that up with the very best spread guru we can find. A young guy who will stay with us for 4 or more years.

Pretty cool that there were LSU players who saw Kimo at the ole Miss game and motioned him to come to LSU. They know who he is and if they want him, so should you. This dude is not done growing at 18. Great pick up.

4-3!? Aranda ran a base 3-4! All of the defensive personnel that are returning are 3-4 guys! Even the true freshmen from last year were expecting 3-4. That's why Polini crashed and burned! You can't run a base 4-3 with 3-4 players! That's the sole reason Ika is transferring to Baylor! The familiarity with Aranda and because Aranda runs a 3-4. If they gone run a 4-3 they might as well have kept Polini! It will take at least 4 years to fully install the right players to field a competitive 4-3 scheme!

The star rating is a lot less important than how you develop the player and how the player develops. This is a good commitment.

Damn glad to have this young man. He truly WANTS to be here yet some of you stupid, star gazing mofos do nothing but whine like the bitches you are. We actually need MORE kids like Kimo regardless of their so called star rating. We need players who want to invest their time and effort for LSU. I do not understand the mentality of star gazing nitwits. Welcome aboard Kimo.

He has not gotten the benefits of our S&C program yet, along with the training table, but is already a big, strong human. I look forward to seeing him reaching his potential. The sky is his top. His future is unlimited.

Celebrating signing 3* O linemen meanwhile bama signed 4 5* olinemen. Can’t make up the gap without trench guys and obviously we aren’t closing the gap

This is not always the case but if we miss on Leigh then filling gaps with 3 star projects is not the way to close the gaps on talent against bama,clemson and oh st.

Those guys didn’t want to come to LSU so what do you suggest the coaches do?

Yeah, we celebrated getting a 3 star RB who was just some local kid and was supposedly too small for SEC Football and lost out on a 5 star RB named Cam Akers. That 3 star kid some of you were critical of was named Clyde. So stfu.
