Chad Jones wore 3. PatPete wore 7 when Jones was here.
I have to wonder if #7 was a payoff to get Giles to pick LSU.
I wondered that, too, because even if some on this board don't care for this tradition, there is no denying that Peterson, Mathieu, and Fournette were exceptional LSU players.
If I recall correctly, Peterson handed his #7 jersey to Mathieu on the field after the Cotton Bowl following the 2010 season. Thus, the torch was passed, and a tradition was born.
Giles has done nothing to even hold the jocks of those previous #7s.
Maybe it's as simple as Giles noticing that the #7 was available and asking for it.
Not sure but definitely why we lost.
Screw jerseys - get us some o linemen who can count
Patrick Peterson started it wanting to create a legacy number at LSU. He asked Tyrann to wear it after he left for the NFL because he knew what a playmaker the badger was. It was continued from there. Kids love legacy numbers and I'd much rather that than garish trendy uniforms and uni changes or the current gimmick props. .
Nope. O wanted to "Feature" one of his players, one of his transfers. It's sad to see the #7 tradition die. Obviously, it should have gone to Delpit or Greedy.
That's bullshit. #7 Patrick Peterson was one of the best to ever play at LSU & in the NFL. He is the most decorated CB in LSU history.
