It’s a huge IF that he comes back and is actually eligible for 2021. Not to mention is in good shape and ready to contribute.

It's not just about shape. Dude has never been thru a spring practice. Rather have him than not, but he's not prepared to have a Chase like Sophomore break out year.

That guy is never going to play another down at LSU or probably anywhere because he can't keep his shite together.

You have kole taylor as the only receiving threat. Bech will start out at receiver.

Dude all you do is shite on the team. Go pick a team that does everything the way you would. Or maybe get into coaching ur self.

How did Orgeron botch his recruitment?

False. Just didn’t agree with how Orgeron handled this kids recruitment.

And btw it looks like Burns is coming back home so I guess Orgeron realizes the kid can help us after all.

Pushed him out the door bc he thought he had someone better silently committed. Burns went to Georgia and LSU was left with 2-3 open spots on signing day bc all the silent commits went elsewhere

Bull shite. Mountains of bull shite here. There’s legitimate criticism while still accounting for the fact that our recruiting rankings are far from suffering, we just landed a great class, and look lined up for one of the best in school history. Then there is pissing all over the last two threads on this topic like O stole your favorite toy.

You have an ax to grind. You know it. We all damn sure know it because you won’t ever drop it. Just admit it.

As for Burns, meh. Focus on the upcoming class and bigger needs. Safety may be a need, but there more talent there than TE today. He’s a good player, but I think we can do better in the portal by waiting a bit longer.

The coaching staff disagrees

Gilbert is trying to get back on the field. I'm not ruling anything out until we know about him for sure.

Shead really wants to be a receiving threat. That is his focus. It's why he came here.

Maybe, maybe not. The fact that he is listed as WR/TE on the roster tells me they want him at TE.

I could see Arik making it back on the team for the fall, coming on slow and by the 4th or 5th game start to take over.

I agree.

The offensive coaches haven't had him yet. I think it'll take some time for them to get to know his skill set and create plays just for him. I hadn't thought about no spring yet. He hasn't had a 4th qtr program either.

I doubt there is any reliable source on Gilbert's academic projections, nor his training schedule, this summer.
If he is available to work out with the projected starting QBs, all summer, he could be a force next season.
Burrow credited his work, off season, with the receivers for their success.
Brennan was a witness to that work/success.
Its up to him and the receivers.

Well see about Gilbert, I wonder where that situation is. I know atleast a week ago a UGA insider was starting to be confident on Gilbert. No clue anymore but I'd assume he'd be coming back to LSU before UGA.
