    He's not willing to wait til his time and thinks he's ready now. No doubt the team is better off without this kind of MEntality.

    Dunno, maybe I'm reading too much into it?? I know you would know for certain but reading between the lines:

    With all that's going on here I thought maybe you had meant that response for one of the other threads. I was assuming you pulled one of my mistakes having more than one tab opened to the same site.

    Travell had an acclimation problem. :D It's a hard defense for some to grasp quickly even though they have a lot of athletic ability. That makes it especially difficult for a JUCO transfer with eyes set on the league if he's looking at being a part of a rotation and that doesn't even include being the third corner in that rotation. When you add that to the Jan. and Feb. conditioning program, spring camp, and then off season work this summer—requirements set he had a hard time meeting—leaving was what he thought was his best choice.

    I never heard anything about a me attitude.

    Adding to the OP, we lost a guy Friday to an ACL. He played safety and the action he was likely to see was a back-up role in the money position.

    Both teams have defensive backfields that are going to have some fresh faces, no doubt. I wonder if any of the three that transferred over the summer are looking at their decision to leave LSU and regretting it this weekend.

    Sounds like a "ME" guy to me. :D

    I can't say the thought didn't cross my mind when I was writing that, IE: willing to sacrifice time and effort.

    I can't speculate on how a kid thinks when he's highly thought of in the JUCO ranks and then comes to a D1 program and finds himself behind. It's a pair of shoes in which I've never walked.
