    Just out of the Top 50

    Xavier Carter, LSU receiver: If he can run routes and catch, the sky's the limit for the nation's best prep receiver. The incoming freshmen runs a 4.35 40. With LSU thin at receiver, Carter could make an immediate splash.

    Pretty cool the freshman is getting some props before the season.

    The Tigers may have lost Clayton and Henderson but they will not be "thin at receiver." Green should be the go to guy and if Amp Hill comes around from his injury and Carter and Doucet make an immediate impact LSU might well have the fastests receivers in the country.

    I think the guy lost in the shuffle is Lavelle Hawkins. This guy is electrifying and out of some deep talent in California. This guy needs to add some weight but is 6' and runs a 4.4.


    he was a late signee but could have a huge impact eventually.

    I saw this yesterday but Im not a big fan of DDD. (Dennis "douchebag" Dodd) I think he was instrumental in swaying the national perspective about this shared NC so screw him.

    34. Corey Webster, LSU Cornerback
    Webster is Deion Sanders without the flash. The steady, shut-down corner is a big reason LSU was able to share the national championship. He locked up on Oklahoma's Mark Clayton in the Sugar Bowl, arguably providing the difference in a 21-14 victory. Going into this season, he is the best corner in the country. The 2003 All-American needs eight interceptions (he has 14) to set the school career record. Webster was NFL-ready as a junior but chose to return, which is bad news for the rest of the SEC -- and the country.

    NCAA 2005 is not doing nearly enough to keep my mind off September 4th.

    Today I was riding in my car listening to my "LSU" cd (which contains about 20 band tracks and various others) and "Boom" came on. I thought about Sept. 4th, when all the Pac 10 fans are sitting in Death Valley for the first time... if they play the Boom video, or even just the song, or even just the chorus... it would be amazing. "Here come the boyz from the South." It gave me chills just thinking about it.
