I know its not all of us, but I see more often then not when a South Louisiana kid chooses to go elsewhere, some of us seem to take it personally, or think he is betraying his state. I am no less guilty from time to time. However, we should maybe realize that maybe he wants to experience something different, maybe he wants to leave home and experience a different life. I mean its a 17 year old kid. It not that he hates LSU or LSU is inferior, on the contrary, most of the Louisiana kids who leave the state do it for the same reason kids from Texas and Alabama for example COME to LSU. Its because they want to experience new things. For example the subject yesterday, so he committed to UT. So what, UT has a great program, do they win championships like LSU or OU, no of course not, but they have great facilities and a great campus. Maybe he liked what he saw. No shame in that, he liked LSU as well, but simply wanted to go an experience a new scene. My point, is lets not dog pile a Louisiana kid simply because he chose to go somewhere else. LSU will be just fine, UT got a great player. Just like Applewhite when the UT people say WOW, we can say, he is from Louisiana. Its not a big deal, he is not slighting us or the school, he just made a different choice in his life. I wish him all the best..... Again this is not pointed at anyone here specifically but I have seen it around where people are saying, His loss, F-him, he is a traitor etc etc.
