    As a player today, you can get paid when you sign out of high school, then you can get paid again when you transfer and you're immediately eligible, and you can get paid by NIL. Got to maximize your 4-5 year earnings window.

    Just more reason for me to care less. We'll never compete bc we'll never play the game in the gray area. And if you don't play in the gray, you aren't winning a thing these days. Wish our leadership and boosters cared as much about football as the boosters at Ole Miss, Auburn, etc.

    It?s not gray area when it?s legal. Jackie Sherrill wants to come back and lead this effort. Keenum is ok with it? Loafers Jr isn?t.

    When are people FINALLY gonna realize how bad John Cohen is as Athletic Director?

    Seriously, he has to go along with several other idiots including Bo Hemphill and the red head?.

    I’d like to hear more about this. Why in the hell would you turn down the services of one of the guys who was instrumental in creating this whole brave new world years ago.

    How is Jackie's health these days? Can he drive down and knock some sense into a few heads?

    There is some momentum and organizing amongst a group. Led by someone who knows how the game is played. We will see how it shakes out.

    I hope this isn't as done of a deal as y'all are saying, the kid is the real deal and is the perfect weapon for Leach's offense. Also, I don't want him up the road.

    Pretty incredible note: the last HS QB to sign with LSU and finish his career with LSU was Jordan Jefferson.
