On Gilbert...
There is a plan in place that could see him play this Fall if he does everything (exactly) that is set forth for him over the next few months. He has already been taking classes online through LSU and will “re-enroll” next month to continue through the summer. The biggest hurdle will be getting him cleared with the NCAA, but they have set forth very specific goals he has to meet academically. He controls his future right now and the next few months will dictate his fate for the Fall

Honestly, stay or go, whatever. I’m just tired of hearing about it. He needs to make a decision already. His teammates, no matter how much they like him, have to be tired of this shit

He back, nice.... as much as I hate to say it... we really need him in the passing game. But he needs to get his damn head straight and the team ultimately needs to make the choice

He’s made his decision and is returning. Just has to hit the ground running in the classroom if he wants to have a shot to touch a field this season

This is huge, I believe Peetz/Mangas would get the most out of Arik.... that old fart Passing game coordinator last year was probably terrible to play under

I would assume our compliance dept will make it as hard as they can on this kid.

Yup, and it’s hard to better yourself as a football player when your just worried about getting eligible. I’m totally rooting for Arik tho!

Glad to hear it. This has potential to be a great redemption type story. It also goes to show parents that O cares about their kids.

What about his other issues (whatever they were).

I think the best thing is to give him a year to figure that stuff out.
