    LSU RB Leonard Fournette lands Sports Illustrated cover
    As we approach the halfway mark of the college football season, Heisman favorite Leonard Fournette lands on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

    This week’s cover of Sports Illustrated featuresLSU sophomore running back Leonard Fournette, who has led his Tigers to a 5–0 record and a No. 6 national ranking.

    Alan Shipnuck profiles Fournette for SI, telling the story of how the running back's family survived Hurricane Katrina and how becoming a father opened Fournette’s eyes to life beyond football.


    On the field, Fournette has averaged more than 200 yards per game and has scored 12 of his team's 22 touchdowns this season. Herschel Walker, widely considered the best running back in college football history, has hailed Fournette as even more talented than he was. As a sophomore, Fournette now faces the intriguing option of sitting out his junior season to guard against an injury that could damage his NFL draft stock.

    It's a scary thought, but you read my mind.

    Even the SI jinx can't stop Leonard Fournette.

    Ask Rudy Ford.

    The SI jinx is real. If I was Fournette I would get some of my homies to torch the building where the printing presses are.

    Shaq is Superman. He is immune to everything except kryptonite. Leonard may be Superman Jr.
