Well, Narcisse wasn't too happy with Blackwell's Tweet:

Maybe he wants to compete or doesn't but it is their choice to do what they hey think is in their best interest.

Snowflake mentality, not willing to put in the time and effort to learn the position. Hey, Look at my high school tape, as a junior, shouldn't I be starting?

He's doing the same thing "the savior" Burrow has done!

Sad to see that Lowell thinks that way ... But wasn’t Tebow used as a goal line situational guy early in his career at Florida???

Yes, his true freshman year and then he took all the snaps after that. Not nearly the same thing and completely different offense.

Narcisse is technically a freshman. He was going to get certain playing time because he was big and athletic. He could have used this certain playing time to make a difference in some big games and endear himself to the coaches and the Tiger Nation, thus probably earning him more playing time. He could have been Tim Tebow...who was also big, athletic, left handed, and NOT A STARTER AS A FRESHMAN. I question who is advising this kid. I don't begrudge some kid for leaving, but this deal doesn't make sense to me.

I wish Narcisse well. I don’t understand why anyone would be mad.

Honestly, that was a very mature response by Narcisse.

All yall (Blackwell, et al.) bashing Lowell for transferring out, but praising a Burrow, who transferred in?!?! You have to know how CRAZY this all sounds. You do know he left a competition as well! Does that mean we are staking our hopes on a guy who is scared to compete? By the logic being tossed about, that's certainly what I am led to believe some of yall must think.

I haven't bashed anyone, but your argument is stupid. Lowell and Joe were two completely different situations.

"one guy left 2 weeks before the season starts you are a fricking idiot"..... Burrow left when he wasn't the starter after spring. Narcisse left after he wasn't starter during fall camp. Hell, Burrow didn't even transfer in until long after spring practice ended. No material difference there.

Blackwell does not seem to notice the difference between his situation and Narcisse's situation. LSU changed offensive philosophies after Narcisse committed. LSU is transitioning to a pass heavy offense. Narcisse realizes that he is not a good fit for that new philosophy. He's a smart kid for choosing to transfer. P.S. Nice virtue signalling Blackwell. You waited until you were good enough for the coaches to decide you were ready to play. What a hero.

The young man has to do what "he" believes is best for him.

Given Burrow's pedigree I think it will be difficult for any QB at LSU to beat him out. Looks like LSU will attempt being a more pass oriented offense this year and that requires QB's to be more adept at reading defenses and coverages. With only one season at LSU it does surprise me that Narcisse has decided to transfer so early in his second season while learning a new offense under SE. The fact there are two QB's ahead of him that are better passers means he won't see the field much. So, I can understand a coach wanting to use him as a change-of-pace QB. It gets him on the field and gives the opposing defense something more to prepare for. LSU did the same thing with SE and David Woodley. Woodley was more athletic and was used to run the ball more and run bootlegs and sprint out passes. I don't believe the coaching staff was trying to undermine Narcisse's desire to play QB, rather wanting to utilize his abilities while he develops into a better passer. LSU has done this with other QB duos. The offense under Matt Mauck in 2001 was more run oriented than when Rohan was in the game. LSU ran plays Mauck was better suited for until he developed into a better passer. He was one of the main reason's LSU beat Tenn in the 2001 SEC Championship game. It's a shame a player reacts like this to coaches literally devising plays that suit him best at this point just to get him on the field and utilize his abilities. Esp after one full season and a few weeks of training camp. It's best not to have players on the team with this type mentality. If every player was like this, my god, you'd never have time to develop players. 1st and 2nd year linemen would be leaving, linebackers leaving, db's leaving, rb's leaving etc. Hell, Nick Brousette has been their for how many years? He's just now getting a chance to see significant plying time. Blackwell was just stating the obvious. It doesn't look good when a player doesn't have the patience to learn and develop until they are ready to start. I believe this decision to transfer has a lot more to do with things not related to football than it does football. The fact is, he isn't good enough to beat out at least 2 other QB's at this time. If every player had this attitude and didn't want to spend the time developing their abilities, there would be a lot less freshmen and sophomores playing on teams, they'd all be transferring, at least the ones that can't beat out the players ahead of them. It's sad. But, honestly, with Parish coming in next season, Narcisse probably wouldn't have any better chances of seeing the field. I'm sure Parish will love to suit up for LSU and run some option type plays specifically designed to showcase his ability.

too long, but correct evaluation. Too many of these kids not named LF just think if they don't start just don't have the chest to keep working, developing and honing their skills. Brossette is a great example, and certainly Will Blackwell is as well.

"Too many of these kids not named LF just think if they don't start just don't have the chest to keep working, developing and honing their skills.

Bottom line, go where it's best for you. We all do it in other phases of our lives, why can't Narcisse do it? Hell, Burrow did it. So did Giles.

I go back to what Kim Mulkey told Kramer Robertson after his sophomore year when he was considering transferring. If you’re not good enough to play at LSU, you need to transfer, otherwise stay and compete
Reply36 months
You can look at it a little differently and make the case that he is a competitor. He’s leaving a school he loves so he can actually play. I don’t blame him, he hasn’t had a chance to really get on the field in like 3 years. Dude just wants to play, I don’t really blame him.

The article is about Narcisse, not McMillian. Narcisse hasn't been at LSU for 3 years. I suppose the coming trend will be that every 1st and 2nd year player will decide to transfer when they can't beat out the other players ahead of them on the roster. This isn't about playing time, bc that's what the coaches were trying to do is get Narcisse on the field. So what's really going on here?

LSU fans are delusional....LSU once recruited Dak Prescott to play safety.... Newsflash, guys want to play the position they feel they are best suited for. If LSU sees LN as just some gadget player then he has every right to go to a school that can utilize his entire skill set.
Reply36 months
Being a gadget player is the only value to LSU for LN. The coaches carefully evaluated LN, and decided that spending time to appease LN with special packages was counter productive, and a waste of precious time. LN was processed. Nothing more. Just like LS, and JM. Truth is, the one dimensional "dt" qb is of value on teams with little supporting cast, and poor O-line play. THIS is where they shine. They are wasted space for a program like LSU unless they are proficient passers who can read defenses, and go through progressions. Like Danny Etling, and what is expected of Joe Burrow. This is also why this staff is excited about Parrish. Parrish, and Burrow look to be the same qb.

Blackwell was 100% correct and LM got butt hurt.

Who is LM?

He's LN's alter ego.

Can we be honest now? LN is NOT any type of proven qb. He missed over half of his high school years, and basically all of his senior year. He was a man almost nots with his size, but that shite dont float in the SEC where everyone is big. He was not a polished an and was and will struggle anywhere he goes if they try and make him a pure passer. Yes LN, for now, you ARE a situational package type qb. Sorry

Good luck to both. I still believe Burrow gives LSU best chance to win. Of the 3, he is my pick (and obviously others): geaux Tigers!

I guess this also means Lowell is dropping all his classes. So much for the free education.

Really nothing wrong with either post. I have more issue with Blackwells from the standpoint that Narcisse wanted to compete and is a competitor. He battled multiple injuries just to get to this point.

The guy who quit for not wanting to compete wants to compete? I have no doubt that Lowell wants to play football. But he does NOT want to compete. He wants to go somewhere where he does not HAVE to compete to play.

Something about a left handed QB. I wonder if the receivers are for this or not. Just looks different on release
