I loved watching Last Chance U, but if Lindsey goes there he'll be fish out of water.

Good decision for Lindsey as I see it. probably saw himself sliding on the depth chart and honestly, knows the key to his future is in the classroom. Thanks for being a Tiger,, go out and make your fortune in the world.

Nothing against Scott, but let's be honest, he saw the writing on the wall- was never going to see the field...

I feel as if he would have tried to get on the field at a different position he would have got playing time, the kid does have talent and is smart as well...But maybe he was dead set on the qb position.

Harvard can certainly take transfers. If he needs a full ride, Duke or Northwestern wouldn't be bad places to land.

They will not take any of his credits from LSU. 10 yrs ago none of Hatch's LSU credits would transfer.

If you're transferring to Harvard with 4 years to play on scholarship, who cares if your 12 hours in basketweaving management do not transfer? Does that really impact a decision whatsoever?

The Rockachaw Super Genius Brain Child Myles is going to bring LSU at least two Natl Championships. He will be snubbed for the Heisman, however.

I think he'd have been a better fit in a les miles offense. Ball control, smart, can make plays with his feet when necessary. New regime will hopefully be airing it out more. Best of luck to him. Hats off to him for choosing LSU in the first place.

lol. Loved what I thought Scott could bring to the table but also loved the potential I saw in Brennan. I've said this before, but I think we should start Brennan and let him go through his ups and downs this year. Last year UGA, USCe, and Bama, started true freshmen at QB. Of course we actually have an experienced returning senior, but why waste a heisman season with Guice when Etling won't get us to the playoffs? Let Brennan grow with all the inexperienced WRs. He has a big arm, accurate, and at worst is as mobile as Etling. Bring the magic back to LSU.

Hate to see him leave but I completely understand. Great young man and I wish him the best. He will be a great QB for another school. That being said, this is a positive sign about Brennan and Narcisse.
