Politics & Football
A little politics and college football. In Louisiana, they were once quite intertwined. Governor Huey Long was a big LSU fan and was purported to have some influence over LSU Tiger football matters.
Minimum politics: Didnít watch The State of the Union last night. I am thoroughly burned out on politics. Admittedly, it doesnít take much. We have news coverage and blog coverage of all things political now. Itís way more than I need. Or want.
College Football: LSU did alright for themselves yesterday in the recruiting department. The teamís most glaring need was addressed. Inconsistent quarterback play hurt them in a lot of games and put a lot of pressure on their defense. I donít think they were national championship material last season but they would have beaten Auburn in that early season game and would have played for the SEC Championship if their QBís were more consistent. They signed the top-rated recruit, Ryan Perrilloux, in the country yesterday, who happens to be a QB. I think college football fans will start hearing his name next season by mid-September.
Running a little late again this morning. Or as an old work colleague used to say, " It's getting late early. ".
