Talent matters. Often, that  equates to stars. However, that is not always the case. Some kids don't do the camp circuit tour. They may have a lot of talent, but don't have the notoriety. Sometimes, I think the folks who give the stars are less than honest.

I am sure our coaches pay attention to the stars, and most times, the ones with the most stars are the most talented, but I know they heavily evaluate the players and that is most important. Sometimes, the stars seem to be off (looking at you Shea Patterson).

I think this year will be a crucial year for him. Replacing Burrow, Brady and Aranda, plus the other players that left for the NFL, will be a challenge. Will LSU stay at the top, or drift back down into the second tier of the SEC? It will be interesting to see.

For that matter, why care about rankings at all? The coaching staff goes a lot more in-depth into the players, on and off the field. If they think a young man is a good fit...

It is fun to speculate and talk about "what ifs" though.

Just finished "Six Frigates: The Epic History of the Founding of the US Navy. Awesome read! Great insight into the conflicts of the period, declared and undeclared war, and the struggle for the US to gain respectability on the world stage.

Day 1--20 Jul 1969 to experience the first step on the moon ( I was tempted to say Woodstock lol)

Day 2--June 6 1944 to see the launch of the D-Day invasion

Day 3--I'd have to go with the Battle of Hastings as well. I've studied it, written papers on it, and always wonder how exactly Harold the Saxon really did die.

Day 4--218 BC, Hannibal crossing the Alps. I would have been cold as hell, but I want to know exactly where they crossed, how the hell they got those elephants over, and what they were feeling when they looked down upon Italy.
