re: Mainieri quotes on Fontenot are brutal: "he cost us the game" - whoyodaddy
Baseball is a game of failure; people who fail 2 of 3 times make the hall of fame. Fans, including LSU's coach, forget that they are also dealing with 18-20 year old minds, not fully mature humans or robots. External criticism, which actually is damaging, not motivating or helpful, reveals a lack o...

re: For 2 sport prospects, negotiating with Manieri to take INITIAL scholarship burden - whoyodaddy
Granted, he’s not 6’4 with the Golden Wing, but a player of Hampton’s caliber would legitimately be offered 0.5-and maybe even a full. Certainly, LSU Baseball can offer less than other schools, but the big picture here is he wouldn’t hurt baseball much- if any -his first year, and would be free year...

re: For 2 sport prospects, negotiating with Manieri to take INITIAL scholarship burden - whoyodaddy
[quote]Problem is if he passes on the MLB draft and also passes on football. Then baseball's in a huge world of hurt because they've dedicated a full scholarship to a player.[/quote] ‘World of hurt” if he decides to just play LSU baseball??? This guy is solid enough baseball player to be con...

[quote]Cuz athletes not on a football scholarship cant play football. Football scholarship players can play other sports but not vice versa... thanks Alabama and Bear Bryant.[/quote] Ok. I didn’t realize that. Sadly, a kid like QB from Hattiesburg, who is a better baseball player than football wi...

[quote]I cannot find any reason why baseball couldn't promise a scholarship (nli or other promise) and not count against football as long as the player doesn't show up and claim the scholarship. [/quote] Appreciate the response. In the case above, nothing transpires until the player arrives, and...

re: For 2 sport prospects, negotiating with Manieri to take INITIAL scholarship burden - whoyodaddy
[quote]Baseball, like all men’s sports other than football and basketball, do not have enough scholarships to give anyone a full scholarship. Keep in mind someone like Alex Bergman never has a “full” scholarship.[/quote] Understood, but there are some who do receive 100%. But in this case, look a...

For 2 sport prospects, negotiating with Manieri to take INITIAL scholarship burden - whoyodaddy
For those 2 sport prospects -ie Maurice Hampton- who may also be a MLB high draft pick (June 3) and therefore a scholarship loss for a D-1 football program (not a loss for baseball) by the new NCAA standards, why can’t this player’s scholarship be allotted to baseball, which, unlike football, IS NOT...

[quote]Ole Joe will go down as an LSU favorite in the end as he should because of his balls and heart but not because of his arm.[/quote] Agreed with majority of your comments, but IMO, learning a system, coaches, players and playbook in 3 months does not lend to the probability of success, espec...

re: Savion Smith: The past 3 years have been quite the journey, LSU, MGCCC - whoyodaddy
Just being factual, which may illustrate that Saban does what he has to do- legal or otherwise-to win. Kids playing with fire sometimes come back to burn you, like S Smith in the National Championship game. I would imagine NFL scouts are aware of his accountability- or lack thereof. There was ...
