depends on what you thought our record would be going into the season... things we knew off the top of my head (there's obviously more); no depth or size on o-line or d-line, playing plenty of freshmen significant amount of time, ST was still lacking, etling was still the qb, totally new offense... that is not a recipe for 10 or 11 wins... hell, after the debacle at troy, i didn't see how we would win another game last season... this isn't giving anybody a pass, this is an honest assessment of what i was seeing...
You are waaay underrating the talent that was available.
C- Clapp - Rimington Award runner up
OT - Weathersby
OG - Teuhema (Run off by Rosy)
DB - Tolliver
DB - Jackson
WR - Chark
*Other Seniors that could be drafted..Christian LaCouture, Russel Gage, Greg Gilmore etc.
Plus LSU was left with the #2 class in America in February 2016. And a #7 "Meddled with" class in 2017.
Other school would kill for this kind of talent, 2 1st rounders, one on Offense & Defense..
Moderate leaning to underacheiving success
didn't underestimate talent at all (didn't even mention it)... i actually said no depth and size on the lines... plus, most of those guys missed at least 1 game and one guy quit (imo) on his "brothers" way before the season was over...
No depth? We had more depth than anyone except Alabama, including those big guys you're gonna see on the DL & OL next year. The were here last year.
Maea Teuhema didn't quit in LSU. One of the nicest & biggest 5 Star guys to play OL here. Orgeron didn't like him & everyone paid Rosy"s stupid mouth/temper. Cost us 6 OL players. Maea's brother Sione, was a completely different story.
Seriously man, running off a tremendous backup like Andy Dodd??
Or he could have just went to class.
Shea Dixon went to class, when he wasn't calling former 'Jersey Shore' star, "Tommy Cheeseballs"" at midnight, at his home, as the Rantards looked on.
And now he follows high students around for a living.. is that millennial's call success? He's a Fricking Stalker..
It's not stalking if you get paid for it.
