    So the father of Brian Thomas Jr. has said he won't be announcing tomorrow. It's down to us and the aTm. Rumor is Brian and mom want to stay home, but dad has been selling him to the highest bidder all along. Crazy steep asking price is the word. Feels like one final leverage play by pops.

    Other than BTJ being a take it looks like LSU will hold onto the other two of the remaining three scholarships available. Transfer or carry it to next year?

    BTW, qb Cole Lourd from Cali tweeted he got scholarship offer from us. It is said to be if he comes he'll be blue shirting at LSU. Peetz liked him after getting the job, his family is local ties, gotta keep that qb room filled with Myles unsettled and Finley maybe looking to bounce.

    Anyone got any thoughts? Used to be a big day tomorrow, but feels very much not the case anymore with ESD.

    My thoughts are BTJ is he's a liability if all is true about his dad. I see a train wreck for the kid and he will get us in trouble down the road. I say move on there are always great WR's in Louisiana. Watched a lot of vids on Lourd I say take him cause if O and Peetz are offering there must be something going on behind the scenes with our QB's. My feeling is TJ is unhappy. Watched his attitude on the sidelines last year and and wasn't good. Maybe it's Brennan that's either still injured or unhappy. Nussmier may be wavering but the Lourd kid is good enough in my mind to remedy any loss at QB. MJ is our QB he has that it factor like Burrow did. Walker coming in in 2022 and the Holstein kid if we can get him will be our 2023 QB. I wouldn't waste one second of time trying to get the Manning kid unless he ask us to take him they are not Louisiana proud they just live here.

    Sign Lourd forget BTJ, take Jones and Makaneole and the surprise recruit or transfer I know O will come up with today. You are right that Christmas day feeling about NSD is a thing of the past now.

    What are the chances Davis is still in play?

    If we go light on OL/DT and keep our OL coach, and have to listen to the excuse we’ll fix it in recruiting again, I’ll have my pitchforks sharpened and ready. This isn’t just a 2021 issue, it’s a roster management issue.

    did all 2020 OL returning pause the OL LSU was recruiting, or have we decided to use the portal instead?
