Another question for recruiters. How often does one miss on a guy and he ends up struggling for the place he ends up at. I bet it happens often but it was not the case with McCaleb. Bo McCaleb story is that Robert Lee was recruiting him when he was an assistant to Jessie Evans. Someone else was recruiting a kid from California. When the kid from California committed we were full at that position and withdrew the offer to McCaleb. He went on to UNO where he had a great career. Of course in that time the Privateers rarely beat the Cajuns. Turns out that the kid from California never showed up as he did not become academically eligible. He played JUCO ball and then D1 ball out on the West Coast. Coach Lee always maintained he would have taken McCaleb over the California kid but it was Jessie's decision back then.
I remember coaches saying Bo McCaleb wanted to play for the Cajuns but we went with someone else.
I left St Louis after 2 years (first year it was Landry) to go to Jesuit and Coach with Hammer's Godfather!!!! started at Landry in the Fall of '69 and left in the Spring of '71
-the QB that committed to UL was Scotty Jones but he decided to go to LSU--Delbert DeVille played at UL and was a year ahead of Scotty
Marty Landry played QB after Scotty and came to UL and helped me when I coached receivers
I had a couple of shoulder operations and literally can't throw a ball 10 yards---But as he passed I could be down with the RECs watching the important things!!!
-The BRONCOS!!! right???
Scott Jones ... that is it. He was a pretty good quarterback!
Yep, the Broncos ... a little story for you. When we played St. Louis in 74 they got 2 first downs the entire game ... the best defensive game I had ever scene ... however, St. Louis got the final revenge as we and Marion had a 3-way tie for second place and St. Louis won the tie-breaker, a coin toss. They went on to play Notre Dame in the State finals.
My room mate (Tom Couste) was the head coach for the Saints and played well against the PIOS---I had scouted/recruitied the John Curtis game (I think) with ND the game before or after---anyway we signed 5 from the ND team for the Cajuns
Grotifiend, Hundley, etc plus Sid Veneble from Crowley!!!
Shawn Long is 22 points away.
#21 needs 22 to get to 1000.
Good chance of this happening Thursday.
It will happen Thursday night. Could someone post the 1000 point club. I think Shawn and Elfrid will be finish between 1800-2200 points for their careers if the stay for 4 years.
I know the list isn't accurate, I lost track.
I mean it was accurate in 2004 and I edit updated it a couple times but I believe there is someone besides Elfrid who belongs on the list.
Did Travis Bureau or Randell Daigle make the club?
According to this, Payton was no. 40 in the 1000 pt. club. I am pretty sure Daigle is.
i have a pair of chuck taylors signed by half of these guys i should make my mission that all of em do
It is in fact Randall Daigle
