I hope we can hold onto him, but I don’t understand the love he’s getting. He isn’t very mobile, doesn’t have the greatest arm, and has a very slow release. At least that’s what I saw in his game on ESPN. Sure he puts up good numbers, but it seemed to me like Gilbert being on the field makes him much better than he really is. Like I said I hope we can hold onto him, but Shrout looked very good in the Diet USC game, and was considered the biggest sleeper in his class and many “experts” said he could end up being the best NFL QB of the class with the right coaching. We need another QB on the roster because of questions around Maurer’s health, but I don’t see Bailey starting as a freshman or even a RS freshman or sophomore unless Maurer has to quit and/or Shrout transfers. Especially considering Gilbert won’t be here and he’ll have no chemistry with the receivers and linemen, and the team loves Maurer and Shrout will have that chemistry also
they never had an issue with that game but O ain’t scared to get dirty with the best of them. He doesn’t really have to though when you put that product on the field. It’s like Clemson, Ohio St, and Bama now. You can back away from some of that and sell development for NFL. The dirty part is during the rebuild stage until you start churning out picks
Where is your evidence, I ask you a question.
I didn’t take a stance either way.
But if top recruits have offers from Bama , Clemson, Ohio St and LSU now tell me 3 have been winning (championships multiple times the last ten years )and LSU has 1 great season
You think winning is THE factor for recruits choosing LSU over the others??
It’s different for some players but I’m sure many say “show me the money “
