When you get your butt handed to you by some rubes from Bama, this will happen. Remember, you can't spell suck without LSU.

Seems like Purdue would have been a better choice given that he's likely good enough to consider what his post college prospects might be.
 
2012-01-17 01:54:07 PM  
With how over the map this guy has been, it seems like it we might as well start the transfer watch on him. Be interesting to see if Kelly survives long enough to make use of this kid, he seems pretty ideal for a passing spread.
 
2012-01-17 01:54:26 PM  
He already committed and decommitted from Indiana AND LSU.

This kid will be punting at USC before it's all said and done.

That makes no sense. With the kind of crap Purdue tries to pass off as an offensive line, Kiel would never survive. Every DC would worry about Kiel and send the house to knock him out of sync early in the game and his line wouldn't protect him.

Kelly at least has some leads on good linemen.

2012-01-17 01:58:57 PM  
Well, he's a better fit for a passing spread or a pro-style offense instead of LSU's no-style offense.

You could put the first team all-american line in front of him at Purdue but he'd still blow his ACL in practice like all their other skill players.

Ahh yes, the "l" in "suck," the rare letter that is both silent and invisible. I imagine that makes it very tough on ESL students.

He probably had a chat with Jarrett Lee.
 
2012-01-17 02:08:21 PM  
The kid's name is "Gunner"? I'm sorry, is it a prerequisite that to play QB at Notre Dame you have to be an insufferable douchebag?

/I know nothing about Gunner Kiel, just that with a name like Gunner, he's definitely a douchebag
 
2012-01-17 02:08:38 PM  
Any QB prospect watching the versatility and creativity of LSU's offense in the title game should change commitments.
 
2012-01-17 02:12:06 PM  
Now ESPN will HAVE to rank Notre Dame in the top 10 in the preseason.
 
2012-01-17 02:12:10 PM  
Notre Dame offered more money and perks. Oh. we're not suppose to talk about stuff like that are we?

I honestly had not seen that video till just now. What a classless biatch. I hope he plays hard, gets draft, and when momma wants part of that 1st NFL check, he just tells her "Roll Tide" and hangs up on her.

Of course, looking at her, it's obvious the kid has had to deal with having a crappy mom. She's probably made b/c the red clashes with her dyed hair.

Word.

Illinois actually hired LSU's "passing game coordinator" to be their new offensive coordinator.

Gee, I wonder what wondrous college football program you root for. Considering LSU beat the team that won the title and only is rivaled by other SEC teams in total BCS championships, I'll just assume "suck" for you means "I don't like this team."
 
2012-01-17 02:25:31 PM  
LSU will be fine either way. Their other upcoming quarterbacks are just fine, and the last two national titles were won with reliable game managers who made decent throws when needed, but otherwise didn't botch up the offense. If LSU had gotten more of that from Jefferson, the title game would've been at least competitive.
 
2012-01-17 02:25:45 PM  
Maybe he didn't want to sit on the bench while Les Miles lets a clown like Jordan Jefferson throw games away with his awfulness.
 
2012-01-17 02:28:42 PM  
I love this part:

He has a good arm, he's intelligent and doesn't let things get to him.

Yeah, things like "Being 6'4"/215 in high school, a man playing among boys on the field, unquestioned King of his high school, every day being told how great he is and how rich and famous he'll someday be." Seriously, what's a bad day for this kid, only getting to fark 2 cheerleaders?
 
2012-01-17 02:29:05 PM  
Considering how Les Miles completely farked the QB situation for LSU in the Championship game, I don't blame the kid.

That's not a difficult decision considering it's IU football.

Seeing as how LSU's offense farted around in championship game I think I'd call the guy a "passing gas coordinator".

"Gunner Forcier" would be the best quarterback name in history.

Still banging that drum, even though I debunked your nonsense in the other thread, by showing that poor, lil' ol' RUTGERS turned over (at least) 12 football players between seasons?

Sounds like somebody pulled your athletic scholarship.... because you sure as hell couldn't have gotten an academic scholarship.

Can you show me which FBS school offers a 4 year scholarship? Every single school offers essentially a 1 year contract with a club option for 2, 3 or 4 years.

You're right - schools at the moments offer only year-to-year scholarships. This is something that I think should change, but it is one year only at the moment. What I meant was that coaches do routinely promise recruits that the scholarship will be renewed every year, barring academic or legal problems.

Considering Matt Flynn may be the most coveted free agent in the NFL..eh. The only school I know of consistently putting out top flight quarterbacks is USC. Given all the varied places NFL QB's have come out of, I think it's a roll of the dice.

It's cyclical...for a long time, Michigan seemed to always produce the most NFL-ready QBs.

Matt Flynn? Based on that game versus Detroit? I guess someone out there will make another Scott Mitchell/Kevin Kolb mistake. Anyhow I was talking about the progression at the school. LSU doesn't exactly have a great record of developing QBs within their collegiate career.

Jackdragna: The only school I know of consistently putting out top flight quarterbacks is USC.


There have literally been zero top-flight quarterbacks to come out of USC. Mark Sanchez? His own team is trying to get rid of him. Carson Palmer? Cincinnati considers him a bust, practically, and everyone knows about his shenanigans (holding out, "retiring," interceptions, elbow made of bubble gum and scotch tape). Matt Leinart took about three snaps this year and crumbled, and Houston was better off for it. Who else ya got -- Todd Marinovich? Sean Salisbury? Rob Johnson? Where'd John David Booty go? You think Barkely is going to turn this around?

Unless Sanchez suddenly goes Wizard of Oz and magically gains some heart, courage, and intelligence, and unless Palmer falls ass-backwards into a title with Oakland next year, about the best career any USC product has had is Rodney Peete's. His greatest accomplishment was playing for a long time...and marrying a pretty hot chick (who was also second-tier for her whole career).

Palmer was considered top flight before his injury, I'd say. I think you could argue him either way. I do think that Barkley will be a top flight QB in the nfl before it's all said and done, but that prediction is a minimum of a few years away.

So your larger point, that USC isn't exactly a hotbed of QB talent, stands. USC is, however, a shiathole university in the shiattiest shiathole part of Compton, and everyone who goes there, went there, or will go there is a complete farking douchebag who needs to be sent up in a rocket ship on a collision course with the Sun. So there's that.


Go Bears.
