Ed Orgeron was on the SEC Coaches Teleconference Wednesday morning and talked about star freshman tight end Arik Gilbert.

Orgeron said they both spoke on Tuesday and Gilbert told him he was opting out for the season but did not say if he was transferring.

Gilbert, a former five-star prospect from Marietta, Georgia, is the seventh LSU player to opt out this season.

Dude is suffering from vaginitis. He didn’t opt out, he quit and that shouldn’t sit well with his teammates who go to battle every day.

THANK YOU! Wonder how well it’d go if I told work I’m opting out for the rest of the year.

I find it harder and harder to root for this team. We have some deep rooted problems that need to be addressed

What's going to eventually happen is the guys who stick this out are going to rally around each other... and then, naturally, there will be resentment towards the ones who left them to fend for themselves. If that happens, the guys that left are not going to be welcomed back with opened arms.

Don't let him come back, he isn't a team player. Let him transfer to non SEC university.

Bull shite need to set a standard 5 star Covid excuse or whatever. Move on we need young MEN who have balls to fight through tough times. That’s what makes TEAMS because you grow when chips are stacked against so you appreciate when winning comes back around.
