    I was curious how that was going to work out. Skalski came back because he was kicked out of the NC game last yr. & the semi game this year. Targeting both times.

    He’s from Tenn. and probably considers the Red Lobster as quality seafood.

    I'll pass along in this post what I've found about Mike Jones.

    He played in 3 games in 2018 and redshirted. He played as a backup in 2019. His first start came in 2020, but he suffered some injuries and his playing time going forward isn't guaranteed.

    He's graduated in 3 years similar to Burrow he decided to find a great spot he can come and continue to excel while still competing for titles.

    Clemson folks hated losing him. He's exceptional in coverage and many felt if he moved to safety he'd instantly be their best safety on the team. It was a shock he left.

    He's a team leader. All in type guy everyone looks up to. He will absolutely get his class work done as a grad transfer.

    Mike as a leader is where he'll be missed most. He helped put together the peaceful protests with the players and directed them at Clemson last year to speak out against social injustice. Not only did the players end up looking to him for guidance but Mike ending up organizing the whole entire team's reaction to social issues.

    He can be one more incredible salve for the fractures that the locker room experienced last year. What an incredible leader for the young guys to look up to going forward.

    We have a tradition now of upper classmen turning it loose as a linebacker and making an impact from Debo to Duke to Devin to Patrick and Jabril.

    Let's keep it going with Mike Jones and Bugg Strong!!

    Thank you. He seems like an incredible get for LSU and a loss for Clemson. Of course playing time @ LSU is also not guaranteed, but I will be highly surprised if he does not see significant playing time. I believe that the weak spot of our defense this year was at the linebacker position. At minimum he will force
    our current linebackers to elevate their game

    We don't need any more woke warriors. Forget about that shit and just play football. Either that or he can spend his future Sundays talking about social justice with his fellow burger flippers at McDonald's.

    That sort of thinking by O is what fractured the locker room to begin with..

    Cancel culture is real.

    Then we have complete moron race dividers like TJ out there. That fool needs to be taught a lesson, but no one is really watching him so meh

    Saw some rumblings recently that TJ is starting to buy into things and TJ recognizes doing some maturing in our qb room alongside our other qbs would benefit him. That's promising imo. Think Peetz can really do something special with each one of our guys.
