OK Coach O you replace a damn good RB coach and a great recruiter in Jabbar Juluke with your buddy and now maybe after one year he rolls out on you and the program might be suffering again. I hope he doesn't get it being selfish about it but LSU is facing a very hard schedule and with a new OC, a new QB, new RB's and incorporating new OL-men and now you would have to hire a new RB coach and replace the recruiting coordinator that's just way to much for an offense. And I know an NFL job is the ultimate promotion but why the dumpster fire that is the Cleveland Browns your job security is garbage you're probably there for a year after another 1-15 or 0-16 season is it worth it, just asking?
It's so amazing to me that when a lot of these kids are faced with a lil competition they run and transfer that's not the type of players you want in your program anyway. So good luck Sci LSU will be fine without you just go to TCU where you really wanted to go coming out of HS. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
People don't sleep on RB Nick Brossette first of all you have to respect a kid who stuck with LSU when the Tigers had three of the best RB's in the country in front of him and he did not transfer. And coming out of HS he wasn't no sluch Brossette played varsity ball since the 8th grade he played 69 games, 1143 carries, 8806 yards, averaging 7.7, 127.6 Y/G scoring 164 TD's that's one helluva HS resume. The kid is 6'0" 218 lbs and fast he's not as powerful as Leonard Fournette and not as shifty as Derrius Guice but who was and he will carry on LSU's RB legacy.

cont: Defensive Rookie of the Year. Lattimore literally shut down the opponents best WR he finished with 61 tackles 5 INT's and a TD. And as far as Offensive Rookie of the Year It's hand down RB Alvin Kamara with only 120 rushes for 728 yards he lead the NFL with a 6.1 Avg,and had 8 TD's, 81 Rec. 826 yards 10.2 Avg 5 Td's, 11 KO Ret's 347 yards 31.5 Avg 1 TD. Kamara finished reg. season with 1,554 scrimmage yards and 12 TD'S and 1,901 total yards and 13 TD's also Kamara along with RB Mark Ingram became the first RB duo in NFL history to gain 1,500 scrimmage yards and make the Pro Bowl in the same season.CB Marshon Lattimore and RB Alvin Kamara will give the New Orleans Saints the Defensive and Offensive Rookie of the Year in the same season I don't know if that ever happened before but, it shows the future of the Saints is so bright. And I'm sorry for all the continues Lap Top acting a fool.
cont: New Orleans Saints fan and I watched CB Marshon Lattimore all year and he is the Defensive
First of all I'm a diehard LSU Tigers fan and a fan for all ex Tigers in the NFL but, I'm also a diehard New
OT Badara Traore is 6'8" 315 lbs and OG Damien Lewis is a 3* not a 2* signee and Traore and WR Terrace Marshall will start with RB Chris Curry, DL Dare Rosenthal and DT Chasen Hines receiving significant playing time. This could change because we got our eyes on some big fish for the February signing date who can either start or receive significant playing time. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
If OT Toby Weathersby C Will Clapp come back that would give five starters returning on the OL. And with the other guys we have and the incoming 2018 class we will have one of the best OL's in the Country with remarkable depth. One other thing on my mind, I don't understand all the hatred for OLC Jeff Grimes people forgot we lost a lot of O-Linemen through graduation, transfers and suspensions and all he had to do was start freshmen and by doing so we had one of the better OL's in the SEC. And by getting the best out of his fairly young OL this year if we return all the starters we will be awesome and we're going to need them because we're breaking in a new QB and a new RB group and if we want to take advantage of the success we had in Coach O first full year as HC then a lot of it will depend on the play of the OL.

Seriously I think LSU took his commitment because of his two teammates but I don't think the Tigers were actually really interested in him. It was long rumored that he wasn't going to be a part of this class and then we replace him with DT Dominic Livingston a 6'3" 340 lb monster team him with DT Tyler Shelvin 6' 2.5" 350 lbs and DT Ed Alexander 6'2" 333 lbs with possibly DE Glen Logan 6'4" 315 lbs playing a little NT depth that was a major problem this year becomes a major strength.

Man LSU O-Line will be so dominating and vicious next year with us playing those youngsters this year and if we return all five starters like we believe we are we will be unmatched. Add the four kids we're getting in 2018 the depth will be so much better than we had in years. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
TE Foster Moreau, CB Jalen Mills, OT Jerald Hawkins, OG Trai Turner, DE Lewis Neal, OT K.J. Malone, Duke Riley, TE J.D. Moore, S John Battle, WR D.J. Chalk, LB Donnie Alexander, WR Russell Gage, TE Colin Jeter, LB Deion Jones, TE Dillon Gordon and CB Jalen Collins. What all these players have in common? They were all 3 star recruits when they signed with LSU. And if you know anything about LSU Tigers football then you know how important these players was to their respective teams. Look no team is made up of all superstars they are made up of players who work hard and make themselves into very good sometimes great players and a lot of those types of players start out as 3 star prospects. So before you dump on 3 star prospects look around the country and see just who were these 3 star recruits and how they made their teams so much better and believe me every team in the country sign 3 star recruits not just LSU.

People seems to forget LSU was picked to finish 7-5 or at best 8-4 because of the extra SEC road game against Florida. To potentially finish the season with a 10-3 record is a credit to Coach O especially after losing at home to Troy. The Tigers didn't break down after big losses they bounced back with even better wins so yes LSU is a really good team with limitations at the QB position. GEAUX TOGERS!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔
First and foremost RB Darrel Williams was a high 4* recruit from John Ehret HS and the second best RB out of Louisiana behind only all-world RB Leonard Fournette.
The Jacksonville Jaguars don't have anything to worry about when it comes to RB Leonard Fournette he has had the highest character of any player from the day he pickup a football. I know for a fact that Fournette definitely regrets and is very apologetic for doing what he did to get suspended. It's not in his makeup remember when South Carolina was hit with tragedy and they had to play their home game in Death Valley and Fournette put his Jersey and I think his cleats up for auction and raised over a $100,000 for the relief efforts and he did that on his own getting permission from the NCAA to do it. The kid is cut from a different cloth and he was raised to respect others and by the way he is doing all he is doing for his baby girl Lyric he won't do anything in his life that would have his daughter look at him in a negative way.
Coach Orgeron knows he has to stick with QB Danny Etling because neither of his freshmen QB's are ready, not this tear anyway. But next year will be a totally different story the two QB's will a year older, smarter, stronger and a lot more confident, the transfers and DT Tyler Shelvin will be eligible and the projected incoming class will make the Tigers that much stronger. The Purple & Gold Tiger Nation just has to have a lil patience Coach O is the right man for the job and very sooner rather than later the Bayou Bengals will definitely prove it in the win column.

Coach O and assistants DC Dave Aranda, OC Matt Canada are on the right track I don't believe at least I don't think a first year HC has ever won a Championship. So all you really want too see is progress from the last year and remember the Tigers lost a lot of talent to graduation, the NFL and transfers. I also remember a lot of those so called experts had the Tigers finishing close to last in the SEC West because of all the road games they had this year and potentially finishing with a 10-3 record in Coach O first full season as HC wouldn't be so bad, but I really believe it going to be a lot better once he get a few of his recruiting classes in Death Valley.

Because of guys like DE Rashard Lawrence coming back next year and those two thoroughbreds at QB Myles Brennan and Lowell Narcisse, the transfers and DT Tyler Shelvin being eligible in 2018 and the incoming recruiting class I feel a lot more confident in LSU defeating Ala-freakin-bama next year. I really believe 2018 is the year the Tigers make a run at the playoffs and make some noise because Coach
Coach O knows the last two years the Tigers should've beaten the hell out of Alabama if we just had adequate QB play. Coach O knows he have two stallions in the barn in QB's Myles Brennan and Lowell Narcisse, transfers and DT Tyler Shelvin who are eligible next year and add the 2018 recruiting class, LSU is definitely coming and I love the fact that Coach O does not fear Alabama and tricky Nick. And we get them in Death Valley next year so I believe we end that damn winning streak in 2018. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
Thank God this unnamed exec is the only one that feels this way. All the other football experts say Jamal Adams is a top 5 talent maybe he's someone who's wishing Adams drop so they could have a shot at him well that's not going to happen he's going to Chicago at #3.

How often do a team hire like minded coordinators? From what I've seen so far OC Matt Canada is the offensive mirror image of DC Dave Aranda. Their both aggressive, creative and young their like mad scientist and instead of a coaching room it's like they concoct their formations, schemes and plays in a science lab. So if Canada can have half the success Aranda had his first year than we are going to have a very special dominant season. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
Don't sleep on RB Darrell Williams he was a highly ranked RB out of HS and I was shocked that he stayed with his commitment to LSU after RB Leonard Fournette had committed. Now if he's given more opportunities he will definitely produce. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
Computer mishap. Continuation, But I'm concerned about Etling performance against the better defenses in the SEC mainly Alabama last tear the game was in Death Valley and he was just horrible. And need I remind you where next year's game is at? It ain't in the comfortable confines of Baton Rouge, and I just don't trust Etling right now. Maybe OC Matt Canada will transform him into a much better QB, hopefully this will be the case because if he thought it was difficult last year what does he think it's going to be next year. Last year the defense held Alabama to 10 points and we couldn't score one point, unacceptable. So Etling if the defense repete it's performance you definitely can't you have to give the defense a lot of help. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
I love that fact that QB Danny Etling was a calming force on the team last year especially after the Brandon Harris fiasco.
Well let's see you squat 605 lbs. They didn't say he broke a world record just his personal best not even LSU's best. It was his personal best but I guess that's not good enough for you, well it was good enough for him and that's all that really matters. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
What no LSU DC Dave Aranda? In one year He has proven to be one of the best if not the best in the SEC, the entire country. What other DC's defense could say they held Alabama to 10 points and the TD Bama scored should've been called back on a blatant holding call, and they shout down Ole Miss vaunted offense that scored over 30 against Alabama. And what his defense did against the Heisman Trophy winner and his Louisville Cardinals in the Citrus Bowl was close to being criminal, so when you talk about DC's making an impact it should start with Dave Aranda. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
If OC Matt Canada can have anywhere near the success in his first year that DC Dave Aranda had in his then should be a very special year for the PURPLE&GOLD and LSU will be back at the top like we should be. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔☔
I know Danny Etling is the more experience even if he were a calming factor and an upgrade from QB Brandon Harris he didn't exactly blow the doors off as the starter. Now I really believe the dark horse in LSU QB competition is QB Lindsey Scott Jr. he may be short but the kid is a playmaker and with early enrolled freshman QB Lowell Narcisse if he is 100% healthy could definitely have a say so in the QB race when it's all said and done. OC Matt Canada will breathe fresh air into an anemic offense and his track record with coaching QB's will definitely benefit LSU and with the offensive talent the Tigers have just like DC Dave Aranda, Canada never had the talent he now have with the Tigers and we might end up leading the SEC in scoring.

LSU is ranked #2 but I think this year they're even better than Alabama. DE's Christian LaCouture 6'5" 301, Deondre Clark 6'5" 272, Glen Logan 6'4" 315, and Rashard Lawrence 6'3"301 who can flip outside to inside. And then there's the DE newbies Coaches son Aaron Moffit 6'4" 255 and very underrated recruits Neil Farrell 6'4" 295, and early enrollee Justin Thomas 6'5" 255 possess size and speed on the outside. And now the big uglies DT's Ex DE Frank Herron 6'4" 305, Greg Gilmore 6'5" 308, Edwin Alexander 6'2" 333 and the new monster mountain in the middle Tyler Shelvin 6'3" 376 who by the way was unblockable in the UUA Game. The Tigers are blessed with experience, size and speed on the front three not to mention DC Dave Aranda scheme they're going to finish 2017 as the top unit if not than top three because those O-Lines have to figure out where the pressure is going to be coming from taking their attention from the D-Line and making it that much easier for the big boys upfront.

For those of you who could care less about what Leonard Fournette will make in the NFL in his very near future remember he didn't make a dime his three years at LSU. Do y'all know how much the NCAA and the SEC made off of his name and his jersey? MILLIONS!!! So please don't trip these players deserve as much money as they can get, they definitely work hard for it, just think most of these kids been playing the game of football about 10 years for free so forgive them when it's time to get paid for it and they do, by the way most folks who hate what an athlete makes never played a sport in their life, LF7 go get that money for for your baby girl (Lyric) and the rest of your Fam.
