Francionne has received a lot of criticism for leaving Bama after having a successful season. He jumped out of the probation riddled Bama program just as the NCAA hammer fell and headed to Texas A&M. Maybe he had an eye on the LSU basketball program and realized how quickly he would go from hero to goat once the effects of probation set in. If John Brady had been as shrewed as Francionne, after the SEC Championship, he would have looked around for a greener pasture. I'm sure other schools would have found his success at LSU appealing. Fortunatley or unfortunately, depending on how a fan feels about Brady, he grew up and LSU fan and has his dream job. When asked, last year, if he had known the probation would have been as serious as it turned out, would he still have taken the job. He answered, of course, and reiterated LSU has always been the job that he wanted.
