I am sure I am preaching to the converted here. But I read on Dandy Don that many people are upset about our recruting this year. First of all. You cannot have a top 10 every year. Sure Texas does but they were in the Holiday bowl the last two years and have yet to win the conference since the God Father of Soul upset Nebraska. So #1 does not make you the best. Also give Saban a break. If we are worried about him leaving LSU fans then we need to chill out and never again do the 1. Boo the team (ole Miss) 2. Bitch and whine if we dont go undefeated 3. Get upset because some 18 year 3 star kid decided to go to Florida with his friend. let him rot there with Zook and a team in a downhill spiral. The Kid plays Offense and we know how Zook has that stellar history of building a fantastic Offense. Its his choice let him reap what he sows. My point is this. We need to come down to reality here people. LSU is a great football team. We need to realize however that we play in the toughest division in the Nation hands down. We will not win every game. And Believe it or not last year was a treat not the norm. It is hard to do what Saban did last year. And lets be honest without the help of our friends Alabama we would have never been there in the first place. Music City bowl here we come. So in short. Next year, this recruiting class. Lets be darn thankful we have what we have. If we dont win the west or SEC next year. lets try not to burn the state down. Saban will make sure we compete year in and year out. But if we keep blasting LSU and Saban for every little slip up or loss of a recruit. I hate to say it but Saban putting a for sale sign in his lawn might happen sooner then we would want. And personally I dont blame him. The guy gave us the best season in a long time. Next year might not be as "fruitful" BUT I tell you what I will stand up and cheer those kids and travel no matter where to do so. Even if we dont have a Top 10 class. Heck I dont ever recall seeing Miami or Florida in the top 10. It does not matter. Texas is a perfect example of winning the recruiting wars and losing the big games. Coaching can take the average player and make them a Josh Reed. If I recall Josh Reed was not even on the Radar when he came out of High School. So everyone settle down. Dont set your house on fire if we lose a few next year. Be dissapointed but suit up and get ready for the next one. We are the team to beat. Everyone knows it. Everyone will be gunning for us now. We still will be one of the best in the SEC. But put your trust into Saban. Give them man a break. Never Boo our team again and act like classy SEC fans and everything will be alright...... Like I said I am speaking to the wrong people but if anyone reads this who is upset because LSU wont be number 1 again this year in recruiting or thinks we should win the SEC every year. I want to win every game as well. But to be in the SEC a winning record and a good bowl game is something to be very very proud of. Sure I want to win the National Championship and will hope I will. But if we dont I will be the loudest one telling the boys and Saban thanks for making Baton Rouge on a Saturday night the greatest show on earth... I think Saban has proven already that the decisions he makes are the right ones. We may be upset if he makes one and it back fires. But that even happened to people like The Bear. I Geaux Tigers.
