I watched that kid Uiagalelei yesterday in the All American bowl game, and he was really impressive. Kid will be really good at the next level, Clemson's good luck continues, this kid will replace Lawrence easily.

Would love for Lou Holtz to try and commentate a game with DJ Ukelele as the QB.

Record breaking Heisman winner against LSU defense everyday in practice is a good resource. Advantage LSU

The only way that signee is going to mimic Joe is if Dabo tells him what the defense is running and what areas to attack before each snap. If Dabo is forgetting Joes cerebral aspect of the game, he's failing his team.

Wait. That defense is training with a QB that's never taken a snap in a real college game to prepare for Joe fricking Burrow? Time to call the bookie.

You have to find a QB with a similar style. You can study all the game film but until you see it (to some extent) in actual practice, you can't really prepare for it.

Just another thing for Joe to put on his list of slights along with all of these talking heads hyping up Lawrence even though he hasn’t been half the QB Burrow has this season. Go get ‘em Joe!!

What fricking planet do you live on where you perceive Joe Burrow to have been even moderately slighted? He’s broken damn near every record, he’s won every award he’s eligible for, he’s unanimously projected to be the number one overall draft pick. Leave the woe-is-me shite to Clemson and tOSU.

Why wouldn’t you just use Trevor Lawrence to simulate Joe Burrow? This is so dumb

Because theIt “joe Burrow “ will run LSU‘s offense vs their defense. Lawrence will be busy running Clemson offense.

Holy crap. What kind of confidence does that leave your starting QB with? "We need a scout QB to closely emulate the Heisman winner who's putting up crazy numbers and setting numerous new records...No not you, Lawrence. Someone good." haha

DJ Uiagalelei? That's not even close to how you spell Joe Burrow.

There's only one Joe Burrow Dabo! Don't get the warm and fuzzies after this high schooler throws a few picks at practice and then assume you have LSU figured out. It will make the heartbreak worst when y'all are fed to the wolves Jan. 13th!

I don’t see this as a slight. DJ U has better touch on the long ball than anyone on their roster. Wanted him in P&G big time. Dude is a legit blue chip.

I love it!!! Let the Clemson defense prepare against a high school QB and think it gets them ready for Burrow. When game time comes around they’ll spend the first half confused as hell why Burrow is 18/20 with 4TDs!

The fact that Clemson feels that a high schooler can emulate Burrow should only serve to motivate JB even further.
