Fournette
Rewatching the Texas game and saw him playing.
Does he get a ring?

he quit in the middle of the season. I get theres more to life than football, but i'm sure he regrets that decision.

He moved down to fourth string. He saw the writing on the wall.

Which in his case is likely being an errand boy for his brother.

I’m sure LSU will give a ring to anyone that contributed to the season
Not like Dabo did
They will most likely end up on eBay

I’m not sure if he finished school or not but him and his older brother have been flipping homes in his old hood in Nola.

That is solely up to the coaches and team, not us.

Personally, I would say no, unless there is a good reason he left, otherwise, he quit on his guys mid-season.

He graduated. He had no NFL future, has his degree, and wasn’t going to get much more playing time at all.

His football career took him as far as it could. I don’t like that he quit, but can’t blame him for saving his body. The Fournettes are good people. I don’t understand why some Tiger fans keep going after them.

I do t think the majority are dissing him. They may be asking why he didn’t just stick it out for 2 more months and get a ring.

His brother didn’t get one.
He could have come tributes in the Arky/atm/OU games.


I just wish the best for him but there is probably more to it.

Agreed, LFs terrible cause he didn't play in bowl game and sat on the bench like he didn't care about a game no one cared about. He donates all this money to feeding people and he's great again....huge rookie year, he's great! Injury plagued shitty team second year, he's a bust. Rollercoaster

re: Fournette
I don’t know how much CEO would have felt pressured to play a Senior during that incredible LSU run but, if it freed up more playing time at all for CEH, it was a great decision all the way around.

I remember watching CEH HS highlights when we recruited him and remember thinking how hard it seemed to be to tackle him. Always thought he was underrated and that he would surprise the football world once given a chance. It was a pleasure watching him continue to develop into the tackle breaking juking machine that he became.

I hope he gets a ring because...why not?

Because he quit mid year, whatever his reasons were.

I'm not saying he should or shouldn't. None of us on here have that say so. I'm just offering up a reasonable response to your question. There are a lot of factors at play, none of which any of us know.

He was never much higher than 4th string and was a senior. The writing was on the wall from day 1. Pretty weak IMO

What’s interesting had he stayed he would have gotten playing time and probably good share of the carries in the Oklahoma game. Not to mentioned a ring.

That dude was lost. Burrow kept telling him where to line up. It was sad.

That being said... I would've stuck around. That team will be remembered forever as the greatest in history and he won't be a part of that. Dumb move IMO.
