    Any other young man.

    Hence the "a" and not a "the" in my previous post.
    It's all good man, difference of opinion. I disagree with the "look at me" generation. Social media has given these guys a false sense of their self worth and it's up to the adults in their lives to check them. They play football, they arent fighting for their country over seas. It's a game.

    Say we're in the Fall of 2019, and Coach Napier has put together 9-4 and 10-3 seasons, in addition to getting a number of 3 star and a few 4 star recruits to commit early. Kids who came here because of Coach.

    Coach Napier leaves for Tennessee.

    Will we still hold those kids who made "commitments" to Louisiana to their word?
    Scholarships are not a 4 or 5 year commitment the are renewable year by year and all party's are aware of it going in.

    Not saying that I disagree with you. On the contrary I'm the ultimate homer. I think everybody should have to stay.

    If the NCAA can tell schools how many coaches they can have then they should be able to step in on other issues, such as contractual obligations.

    I'd like to see the NCAA Institute a rule assessing a penalty on an institution for basically stealing a successful coach from another institution and that penalty would go to the second institution.

    With regard to the players, I'd do away with early signing. And if he would commit to us, I really want him to sign. But in a case such as this young man, if you don't want to be here I think we're all the better for it

    Just looking at it from different perspective

    I originally said the same thing, we are better off, the way he handled the situation was a red flag and we are probably better off.

    No, not Allen. He's getting offers from state schools right now. He's a good kid, just not physical enough for a lineman that size.UL and others are moving on.

    Saw Allen play a couple of times. You would have thought coming from Curtis he would be a great run blocker...he was just OK. Dublin from Jesuit was imho, much better. Wish we would have gotten him last year. He started as a true Freshman at Tulane.

    They wanted Dublin, he took the Tulane offer. The hand writing was on the wall by then.

    I heard he was holding out for a late LSU offer a la Foster Moreau, but settled for Tulane. These are the kinds of kids we have to get in the future.

    I watched Moreau and Dublin play against SMT here in Lafayette for the playoffs. Moreau never impressed me outside of his blocking. He wasn't quick enough to be a threat down field, simply taller than most kids. We offered him early in our camp, but LSU came back and reached to offer him.

    Dublin on the other hand was very impressive, strong and stayed on his blocks well. I liked both, but LSU signing either is a reach. Moreau can block, but he can't get separation down field from SEC athletes. He is just not that type of athlete.
