    Yep, but Gamble had an all time bad performance between all the drops and the tipped ball that got picked and broke us early.

    Ed O in Dec: "Arik did talk to me [Monday]," Orgeron said. "He is thinking about opting out for the season. He said his body is hurting and he has to get better. His mother's in town and speaking with him right now. I don't know if he's officially announced it yet, but that's where we are and what we discussed yesterday."

    Might have been true, and maybe Ed O intentions were misconstrued, but this was kind of a no no for a coach to say about a player. Not sure if he comes back from that, especially after LSU players ragged on him over it.

    No, but we have some real youngsters on this site, as near as I can tell.

    I think many of the posters are a bit older, I’m 52. As far as cheating, it always has and always will be. They’ve gotten pretty damn untraceable about it.

    Should know something for sure real soon. But it’s looking much more likely he’ll be in the orange and blue.

    Does tattoo gate ring a bell? The OSU qb driving a loaner vehicle for over 6 months(?) while his car was being “repaired”? They got put on probation for these issues. OSU is not a squeaky clean program.

    OSU does business the same way that Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia does business. They all operate in the same grey area that the NCAA has decided to ignore. Cars, houses, vehicles, etc. for the “family” of players is ok, as long as you don’t directly place money in the hand of the recruit.

    I’m confused. Looked him up on Rivals and he’s a 2020. Whys he transferring so soon amd I guess so suddenly?

    If you're talking about Gilbert he was a freshman at LSU last year. So I guess that WOULD make him a 2020 guy. :D

    Yeah, he was a TR FR this year, & probably the culture at lsu right now is toxic.

    Ben Troupe was one of my all time favorites. Reps the university well and was an exceptional player back in his day that I don't think got enough national credit for his talents.

    Something seems off. I don’t want to rag LSU about culture with our situations as they are but a true FR transferring before his SO year is odd at least.

    I mean whatever but it’s weird. Maybe he couldn’t crack the lineup and the coaches had that come to Jesus talk about life being too short to ride the pine. :)
