Some good points here....but I don't think Orgeron is running a tight, clean program either....But, beyond that, as hard as it is for me to say it as an LSU fan, I think some of the issues with LSU players may have been character which is clearly very important to Payton and Loomis. There were clearly some very bad things going on with the program off the field under Les Miles and I think the Saints being so close probably had some idea that these guys should have gotten in a lot more trouble than they did and were aware of some attitude issues. Hopefully that has changed, but it takes awhile to change the culture around a program.
No one said they are deliberately avoiding players from LSU. Personally, I said that I find it “odd” bc LSU produces as great of talent, as any (or more) college. Here’s a clip SP GUSHING over players from Ohio StYes I’m sure a $1 billion dollar team in a cut throat league deliberately avoids players from certain schools (like LSU) out of spite. I don’t think people realize how crazy their Saints hate LSU argument is.
guess what? If the Saints had the #1 pick last year, they would have selected Joe Burrow.
