not sure if this has been posted yet, but former LSU tiger Alley Broussard (who transferred to Missouri Southern) will be playing in the upcoming Texas vs. the Nation game. Supposedly he's been running tough in practice. What do ya guys think, seventh round flyer/ undrafted free agent pickup by the Saints (would be worth a look for our in-between-the-tackles runner) or is he the reincarnation of Cecil "the Deisel" Collins???!!!!!

The saddest part of this post is if he had never gone to LSU this wouldn't have ever been posted.

Even lsu fans don't care about Broussard. He quit football to rap. Now he's playing football again?

He failed at one desire, why not try your other, again?

I should probably answer the OP, but I'll do it in an answer with a "question that will help you with your final answer". Does he actually have talent or is it just a homerism thing?

broussard has talent but has a lazy streak. in no way does he compare to cecil collins in talent or social retardedness. if he would have put the work in, broussard could have been an NFL caliber running back, but if my aunt had...well you know the rest.

Hold your horses there.

Don't know about the OP, but I watch about 8 more LSU games per year than any other college team. Therefore, I get to know the LSU players a lot better. It's only natural to bring up players you know well more often than players you only know from their reputation in the press. I think you need to consider that before chastising someone for bringing up a legitimate question.

Personally, I would like to see Broussard brought into camp (UDFA) and see if he wants to play football.

Why? I have seen Auburn fans, South Alabama fans, Tennessee fans, Arkansas fans, Ohio State fans, etc. all post about their players.

There will always be a large LSU contingent on this forum. You are not required to respond to any of the threads regarding LSU players, however you might want to peruse the rosters of the two Superbowl teams this year and take notice of the schools that produced the talent that put them there.

Get over yourself.

For the record, Ally Broussard would probably have been posted about on this forum regardless of school. He's most likely going to shine in this All-Star game and people are going to be watching to see who they would like to see play for the Saints. He was also coached by one of the Admins/Mods of this site.

No, but we do need Jacob Hester.

Sure it is alright, but to an extent. When people start saying we should look at Steltz to replace a developing well Harper or Hester to replace a young talented Karney, it is simply known as homerism.

I welcome people who can create a thread and then analyze the player because LSU or whatever is the college team he observes the most. But when people just start a thread/post because this guy did alright at LSU, and it happens all the time, it is homerism.

Notice how he started the thread with "this guy went to LSU"?
