|Perrilloux saga continues|
Want to get an animated discussion going about LSU football?
I got two words for you - Ryan Perrilloux.
Love him or hate him, apparently he's still a Tiger.
In a poll conducted by the Concordia Sentinel, 51 percent say they think Perrilloux should be kicked off the team, 28 percent said he should not and 20 percent say they don't care.
Must be Ohio State fans.
My guess is that when Perrilloux was kicked off the team, most people felt he should stay off.
If Perrilloux does return and does continue to do what he is told, I imagine the pendullum will swing in his favor.
This much is for sure - LSU needs Perrilloux. You just don't throw a redshirt freshman quarterback into the SEC and expect to win some games.
Does he deserve a fourth or fifth chance?
If he would have committed a serious crime, I would say no.
Last fall I mentioned it was good to see Kevin Faulk talking with Perrilloux before the Louisiana Tech game. So what happens since then - Faulk gets arrested for possession of marijuana. Gee whiz.
But, then again, I don't adhere to the "he is a college kid and they all do it" malarky.
All college athletes do not act like that.
I would love to have a Tim Tebow at quarterback who is going to be a positive role model and will not make the mistake of hanging out at a bar or casino past midnight where few good things happen to somebody who walks around in the spotlight.
I don't remember Rohan Davey being in anybody's doghouse.
LSU head coach Les Miles said Perrilloux is doing what he has been asked to do. Then again, that was before a restaurant incident over the weekend.
Even if he stays, you can bet Perriolloux will be getting up before a number of sunrises and running stadium bleachers either.
Did the program take a hit with the return of Perrilloux?
The answer to that will come during the fall.
Perrilloux has made mistakes and has shown his immaturity.
But, as far as I know, he hasn't robbed a bank, been charged with aggravated assault or - low of all lows - signed with an agent.
Matter of fact, we really never heard why he was suspended for the spring, although missing classes and team meetings seems to be the popular theory on chat boards.
I wish Perrilloux the best and I'm glad to see him back, not just because LSU is hurting at quarterback.
Can I make that statement five or six months from now?
Don't think Les Miles hasn't asked himself the same question over and over again. No matter what happens with Perrilloux, you can bet some NFL team will turn their head to whatever the talented quarterback will do in the future.
Don't think for a moment there are a handful who would welcome Pacman Jones back with open arms.
Miles has his reputation at stake big-time.
You can bet he will keep that bullpen busy.
