It's Mt. Rushmore time on The Paul Finebaum Show this week and on Thursday he revealed his LSU All-Decade Mt. Rushmore which consisted of Joe Burrow, Tyrann Mathieu, Leonard Fournette, and Devin White.

What do you think?

Devin White is 10 times the player Leonard ever thought about being

Hard to believe PP is left off this list. Won a Bednarik and Thorpe award in 2010, a 2 x first team all American and the number 5 overall pick.

I kinda feel the same way about LF7 that I feel about Ben Simmons. Like it's cool they came to LSU. They are generational talents. But, they definitely have way more pride in the name on the back than the name on the front.

1953 yards rushing his sophomore year and a career 6.2 ypc isn’t worthy for you on this list? He split time with Guice his junior year and Hill as a freshman. He’s 4th all time LSU rusher and he’s played about a full 20 games less than the leaders.

WOW, WOW,WOW!!! I've read all the comments and how in the hell do they have all this negativity about RB Leonard Fournette? People y'all forgot how dominant this kid was? I mean I remember every time he got the ball I was on the edge of my seat because he had the potential to break a huge run and he usually did. And please stop with the Bama games because no RB can run against 7, 8, 9 man fronts every time Fournette touched the ball there were at least 2 defenders on him in the backfield. I remember an Alabama player I think it was Tim Williams saying he loved playing against LSU because practice wasn't hard because LSU came with the same game plan every year. So trust me people if LF7 had the luxury of a QB with Joe Burrow's quality where Bama had to respect the passing game he probably wins the Heisman and the discussion about LF7 would be totally different. And by the way I agree with Finebaum's Mt. Rushmore and I never agree with Finebaum but he hit this one on the nose.

Funny Tim Williams story: Alabama staff recognized he was a great athlete but not super bright. Only good for one thing, go straight for the ball. Ended up making him more of a third down player, so much so that they called it “third and Tim,” lol

It’s too darn bad that Ed O wasn’t the coach in 2011 and after. There’s no doubt in my mind that we win much more if he were the coach then. Simply because he would have done what ever it took to become a better team each year and within the year if that was possible. Imagine Fournette in this offense or even last years offense. I can about imagine what Joe Brady would have done with all those athletes and RBs we had back then. Would have flanked Guice out with Fournette in the backfield. Swing routes, screens, draws, throwing deep over the middle or outside, using our TEs, FBs, WRs in the backfield. That formation with Jefferson coming out of the backfield is exactly how you attack a defense. Use all weapons in an unorthodox manner. Create match up nightmares with the players you have and build an offense around your entire offensive skill guys. Feature the best of course but use them all in different ways. It’s exactly what I’ve been wanting and waiting for.

Need a few rushmores based on different things. One on stats, one on awards won and one on pure game impact.

about right - too bad we couldn't have a 5 man Mt Rushmore. PP7 should be in there but not over anyone.
