LSU as a whole will be a little down this year they are rebuilding 10-2, but I think in 2021 they will back in playoff contention.
The best part about LSU having to play a lot of young players next year just means they will be that much better in 2021. If we can go 10-2 next year, there’s no doubt we’ll be in the NC 2021

Ok, who else we got that could possibly decide to leave? We've got to be getting close to the end of the list now.

I like Aranda but defense has never been a problem at LSU. Even in down years the defense was good enough to win a lot of games. QB & offensive line play is/was this team's Achilles heal. Even if Brady had stayed I would not have expected the offense to be as good next year. The stars aligned perfectly. It doesn't have to be as good just pretty good & this team will still compete.

I'm really surprised about Phillips and Queen declaring. Less so on Queen because he wasn't even on the NFL radar before the season and now has a shot.

If you're a RB or a LBer, strike while the iron is hot. Those positions take a beating, so the sooner you can draw a check, the better. Phillips might be the best tackler in this draft. Physically, Queen is how they draw up an NFL LB in 2020. I secretly hope that Queen find his way to the Saints.

Yep....I was shocked Etienne decided to return. He would have been one of the top RBs in the 2020 draft. if not THE TOP RB.

Dabo doing something right over there. Looks like Clemson is a strong candidate for Nat'l Champs next season.

Sunshine probably begged him to stay.

9 juniors gone to the draft. Coaches leaving. Keep your chin up, LSU. This is why they have the Music City Bowl.
I might be worried if so many kids that return didn't get so much playing time this past season due to injuries to starters and the blowouts. There will be a drop-off, but I think people are going to be surprised to see LSU right back in the thick of things.

If you put any credence in draft gurus like McShay and Kiper, Etienne was about the 4th ranked RB had he declared. Most mocks I saw had him as a 2nd rounder. Ranked ahead of him were Swift(UGA), Taylor(Wisconsin) and Dobbins(Ohio St). Maybe this is why he came back to try and improve to round 1.

Man i hope you’re right .. And dont get me wrong, i am LOVING all the aftermath of this glorious, once in a lifetime season.. being at that game may have been the best night of my life... But we are getting ripped apart at the seams with player departures, and coach departures... and it has to be incredibly heady to be a 20 year old kid on that team- even if you’re planning on coming back- and being celebrated as the toast of the nation, becoming internet famous and basically elevated to heights most teams only dream of.

We always have lots of talent to reload, and i take solace in that.. but boy, i hate to be ‘sky is falling’ guy- but if Coach O can somehow put together a 10-2 or better season next year- i honestly think that would be a more remarkable coaching job than what he’s done this year.

Sooo... I saw the name Bo Pellini being mentioned on the internet over the weekend, but didn't think much of it because, well... the internet. However, 247 has an article out now, so maybe this has some legs?

He's a definite change from Aranda. Where Aranda was the professor, Pellini is the brawler. Aranda is the quiet one and Pellini is the screamer. Aranda was the more thoughtful, deliberate schemer and Pellini just attacks, attacks, attacks. I can't think of two DCs who are more polar opposites.

Would be a really risky hire. He hasn't exactly had a lot of success of late. I guess beggers can't be choosers looking for a DC when knocking on February's door.
