I’m to blame for this, too?  So much weight.

Lol well in the 2020 recruiting part 56 thread, you said we should start elias ricks part 1. I know it was a joke, but its the off season. And maybe we should just post funny comments from LSU fan boards on Elias Ricks

Successful people do what they have to, whether they feel like it or not

Sort of serious. We’re going to have Ricks overload until signing day, so it probably needs its own space. And hey, at least you didn’t post about Harbaugh on a Friday.

I definitely think he ends up at OSU. Once he gets more comfortable with Hafley/Day it's game, set, match.

The better question is the over/under for Harbaugh Talking Smack vs. Ricks vs. Ryan Timmons threads?

Yeah, sorry.  That didn’t come out the way I had it in my mind.

Not to piss anyone off but I can see Ricks staying put. LSU might have the best db coach's in college football. Remember they were here for the db  coach's job. Ricks could be a player that just wants the best coaching and a sure starting job so he can get that pay day in a couple years. College football is a stepping stone for the NFL and some I feel don't care a lot about the other stuff. Players that skip Bowl games to me fit that mold when they are saying screw my team and coach's more or less along with wins.

Ricks has said, repeatedly, that if Urban was still in Columbus, he’d be there too. So don’t put too much weight into LSU’s DB coach. 

HS
CorchUrb's picture

How important is winning for Ricks? If Day can go 11-1 and get into the B10 championship, and possibly playoff, things will get interesting. Especially if LSU drops 3-4 games and they start to lose other big recruits, like Rakim Jarrett. Lejond will be in his ear the whole season, but at the same time it’s his decision. I think another big factor day can sell is playing time here. We could potentially lose our top 3 CBs after the season. I’m not sure what LSUs depth chart is looking like, but I know ours is probably going to be more open if we have the departures I think we will have. 

HS

Not to mention the guy couldn’t land Surtain.  The most important DB for LSU in his class.  

HS

Agree. Too many people are assuming him going to IMG means he backs off LSU. While he might, too much assuming going on. 

HS

By signing day in December, Hafley will be considered the best DB coach in the country...

I don't think anybody should be pissed off by that Gobucks1966. I mean, at this point, he's committed to LSU. There's a chance that he's not even remotely considering decommitting. And even if he did decommit, there are other schools like Alabama which are surely beating down his door to go there, too. I'm extremely hopeful and pretty optimistic that we have a chance with him, but nobody should be super disappointed if he sticks with his commitment.  

HS

Well while nobody should be pissed by Gobucks1966 take because it's reasonable this board has clearly shown any opinion that isn't shooting rainbows out there butt about recruiting or otherwise pisses people off. 

I've already proven that a few times just by mentioning i was worried about all the 3 star commitments. Literally got blasted and some people tried to claim i have no clue or i'm just a TTUN troll. So in other words be careful lol

Hall of fame level comment here.  Outstanding work.  Maybe the very young or very old members won't get it, but the vast majority should appreciate the hell out of it.

I'm all for recruiting threads, hell, I post them about high profile crystal ball picks, but considering this guy won't be considering a change in his decision until at least November, this thread may be just a rehash of all the things that have been talked about in the Hurry Up. There won't be many updates at all until after his OV to the OSU/PSU game.

So does Ricks go by Elias or Eli because I feel like I’ve seen both.

Point of order: If we only get to part 68 in the string of 2020 recruiting threads, MacDaddy’s going to have some splainin’ to do.

So Knarcisi is to blame for this. He/Her put out the idea, so blame him/her

Could he/her be both?

There’s really not much Ohio State can do this year except for the obvious. Win the B1G, roll the scarlet carpet out for him in November, greatly improve DB play. I think it all comes down to how LSU performs this year, and whether Coach O keeps his job or not. Hoping they go 6-6. Sorry Joe.

It's a beautiful day in Columbus, Ohio... and TTUN still sucks.

HS
BuckeyeRealist13's picture

In my opinion, Coach O will always be a 3-4 loss head coach. They fired Les Miles and hired Les Miles.

Ohhhhhhhh!! The most overrated player that ever played (actually he didn’t) to ever play here. The 3rd string QB that bitched about not getting paid as a college player. That Joe. I remember now

Based on a thread of comments above I think Knarcisi is Einhorn.

What would help a little is if LSU starts to receive some NCAA heat over the booster that stole from the children's cancer hospital and paid the players. LSU tanking and OSU winning as usual would be the biggest boost though.

HS
gobucks1966's picture

Again wins and loses to a few is not important only being coached up for the show and playing time. I do think we have a good shot though and time will tell.

Im still pissed about how a 2-loss LSU was in the top 5 and a 2-loss Auburn was in the top 3 yet nobody thinks there is a bias. Random outburst..

I think if LSU has a loss before the Bama game, it'll be quite a surprise.  I just don't buy that Texas is that good.  I don't think Auburn or Florida are going to beat them either.  Even the Bama game, comes on the heels of LSU's bye.  Now it's at Bama, but they do get a good advantage of a week off before that game, so it may be primed for an upset.  The only way they get to 3 losses, in my opinion, is if Texas beats them, Bama, and a surprise in the middle somewhere.  I just don't see 3 L's on their schedule. 

HS
JacksonOhio5's picture

Bama has an open week before LSU also.

Conveniently, Bama also has an open week before they go to Texas A&M.  And they play Western Carolina the week before they play Auburn.  Basically, they have two weeks to prepare for all their toughest games.

Go Bucks!

HS
Smitty516's picture

Exactly. Interesting how that always works out for them...they get away with it too, so really can’t blame them for doing it.

HS

As much as we dislike Tom Herman now, collectively I mean, he's a wizard as an underdog.  And based on this recruiting battle, we should kinda be rooting for him to beat LSU. 

HS
CardaleFTW's picture

It's LSU and Ed Orgeron. Same coach that lost to TROY at home only 21 months ago. While the losses may not be expected, they'll come.

It's a beautiful day in Columbus, Ohio... and TTUN still sucks.

Jermaine Burton Jr., LSU commit and top 50 player nationally announced he will now be attending IMG.

Chess piece being moved by LSU to secure Ricks?

HS

Apparently he doesn't trust Elias all by himself with Lejond at IMG. LOL.

It would be hilarious if Lejond flipped both of them.
