At 6'1", 190# 5-Star, Tyron, was bigger faster and stronger than Calvin Ridley. TJ, the nation's #2 WR & LA's #1 recruit was the Offensive gem of the '15 class. A premier slot receiver, returner, w/balance and one-handed catches, known as "Odell Beckham Jr", "The Missing Piece". He worked his way up to 3rd on what has become a 2-man Landry/Beckham, Dural/Dupre depth chart (w/Davey, Russell, Perrilloux/Flynn that chart was 8-14 deep w/2x+ the PAs). Filling in for Dural he had 5 catches & his 2nd TD @ OM. Beckham, a 5'10", 170 lb 3* recruit said TJ had all the tools of a Biletnikoff winner. Beckham said Adam Henry would develop his full potential. Henry swooped in at the 24th hr, promising he & Miles had big plans for him, immediate PT, an open offense: All NSD, get his LOI, 'recruiting lies'. Henry left immediately for SF. TJ & his father felt deceived, trapped. Miles/Cam did not open the offense. He set new lows for Pass ATTs in 14-15, ranking last in the SEC and 120th in the FBS, with the slowest, least spread, 1-dimensional 'O' 3 yrs running, a 9-9 SEC-W, 14-10 SEC record. The Ravens fired Cam for his 5-yr failure to develop an offensive identity, develop Flacco or protect him, no tempo, spread, or Passing game. His 3-WR utilization was the lowest in the NFL, long isolation routes into double teams. Miles/Cam lost 3 consecutive SEC West games in double-digit blowouts not seen since 1966. Dinardo did it 1999, 2 yrs after he let his "Chavis" DC go and he was fired like Miles without a Jindal political crony pardon. Miles blamed player execution not his Coaching, said he did not give a damn, was not going to change, and would continue to pick the plays that fit his out-dated scheme, confirming what other coaches, and his own COACHES say - It is NOT the players, but his stubborn, pigheaded, failure to evolve. QBs & WRs "come to LSU & block for Leonard" was openly voiced by Dural & Dupre by a TEAM whose skill players were under-utilized in pursuit of a Heisman.

I wish him the best. It was the right thing to do. He just seemed out of sorts when he did play.IMO he just didn't seem to fit in. But that's just my observation...

Another home grown star WR that we lose because of our run dedicated offense which better pick up this year if we are to beat Ole Miss and Alabama. Good Luck TJ with the Cowboys and I know we will see you in the NFL.

Wow. You are an idiot. This has nothing to do with our depth and WR and him being buried on the depth chart, right?

Yes. Let's not hand the ball to Leonard Fournette, Darius Guice, Darrell Williams, or Nicholas Brossette so we can throw to the #4 WR on the LSU team. By the way, all 4 RBs are local kids too.

Happy for him. I understand his frustration with the offense.
Reply59 months
The coaches frustration with him & his frustration getting buried on the depth chart was the real reason.

I think u meant to say that you understand his frustration with not being good enough to start at LSU. Right? He wasn't good enough here but likely will be there - get a clue dick head.
