The only way to get better classes is to win our football games.

That’ll be tough with the remedial coach we have

In Les Miles' 11 years here, he didn't finish outside the top 10 once. In Ed O's first full season his recruiting class is 15. Freaking 15th. Good job there Ed O very good job indeed.

Best recruiter in the business they said. #worsthireinLSUhistory

Surtain really fricked us. Could’ve at least gotten Goodrich if he hadn’t slinked away like a dog with its tail tucked.
Reply12 months
Yeah Surtain did us a number and it would’ve been nice if he would’ve been a man about it ans told the staff what he was going to do because he knew he was going to Bama ....

We Comin....lol. Give me a break

Yeah! Out of the top 10. This is the progress the fans are looking for...when does baseball start?

How do they come up with the composite? Is it figured off more than those 3? 12,13 &14 is an avg of 13
Reply12 months
Guys I see coach Aranda working his magic with the DB’s that he has and it probably won’t be as bad as we’re forecasting here .. Hold that tiger

The way coach O talks, I never understand what he says. gramer school kids talk better. If I was a recruit I would say "Coach I do not understand what you say, do you want me or no"

Positions of need he said. Do yourself a favor and check out our roster. We have four scholarship corners and one of them may not be allowed to play this year. With the defense we run, it's not uncommon to use four corners in a game sometimes three on the field at one time. We did, however have 18 returning WRs. With the addition of these four, we now have 22. For team that ranked as low as we did in passing and have for a long time and also likes to boast the label of DBU, I'd say this "position of need" talk is bullshitee!

Negatigers are out...15th isn't bad when it was a fill the position of need year and we took a host of linemen. They typically don't get all the hype the other position groups do. I think O did a good job based on need other than not getting an additional CB or two. I'm hopeful that good protection for Brennan and all these WR targets will be something special to watch...oh and a kicker that nails goals.

lol man. 15th is awful.

LOL! Holy shit! That's 2 "fill the position of need" years in a row. I'm pretty sure we needed to sign a CB, though, professor, not have yet another 5 star "long time commit" thumb his nose at us while trotting off to Bama. "position of need." Yeah, whatever.

I believe this is the first time in years (more than 10) that we finished outside of the top 10 team rankings
