Should be a very interesting game. I'm not convinced that Brady Quinn is the no.1 overall prospect in the country or that he's the no.1 pick. If Brady has a bad game against a talented LSU defense then his stock might drop. On the other hand if JeMarcus Russell has a great game he might declare for the draft. The Texans may have a very high interest on someone like LaRon Landry so it'll be interesting to watch him. Our draft board might be influenced by what happens in this game tonight.

I'm predicting a stomp fest by LSU

In New Orleans
Fast LSU defense
Weak ND defense

Russell could very well end up the #1 pick after tonight

SLO Texan
01-03-2007, 03:00 PM
LSU:24
ND:17

I hope to see Russel live up to the hype he's been getting on the board and for Landry to have a solid game w/a pick!!!

And I REALLY hope ND loses no matter what!!!

Some other key players to watch:

ND, Ryan Harris, LOT - Harris is rated as the #3 OT by Scouts Inc.

LSU, Glenn Dorsey DT - (Jr) is ranked the 8th best player by Scouts, Inc

Then for ND there is Smaradzija WR, Abamiri DE, Zibkowski S and Landry DT

LSU -Bowe WR

ESPN

NEW ORLEANS -- LSU is expected to be without two of its key players and two backups for at least the first quarter of Wednesday night's game against No. 11 Notre Dame in the Allstate Sugar Bowl at the Louisiana Superdome.

Tigers coach Les Miles suspended starting strong safety Jessie Daniels, running back/kick returner Trindon Holliday and backup linebackers Perry Riley and Kelvin Sheppard for missing curfew this week in New Orleans, an LSU official familiar with the situation said Wednesday.

An LSU official said Miles hasn't determined the length of the suspensions -- whether they will cover the first quarter, first half or entire game -- and has afforded the players ways to shorten their suspensions.

"We did have some players who violated team rules and their playing time will be affected accordingly," said LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette, who declined to identify the suspended players or the nature of their violations. "The violations were very minor in nature, but in the framework of the team they were significant."

ND - Quinn, Walker, McKnight, Smaradzija, Harris, Abamiri, Zbikowski

LSU - Russell, Bowe, Davis, Dorsey, Zenon, Landry

Dorsey ranked 8th is pretty high, but he's been nothing short of impressive when I've seen him play. Im interested in seeing Harris play, I think I've seen his "True Life" episode more times than I've seen him play in person.

If Russell has a great game (like Young last year) he could very well declare. He has good potential to be 1st QB taken this year. And potential for #1 overall, but probably top 10. I think he would look great in a Raiders uniform! But going to play for the raiders, alone that will make you stay in school lol.

Jesse Daniels not starting wont hurt LSU cuz their backup SS Craig Steltz is actually better and leads the team in INT.

On paper and this year LSU should destroy ND like 45 to 13 or something
But i hope LSU doesnt come in there to confident or to cautious cuz i have a feeling ND is going to try to do some big plays earlier and fast.

I hate ND and as u know i love LSU, i just dont like the idea of ND being such a HUGE underdog.

Yes he has all the tools and is a great prospect, but he does seem a tad raw. Another year on the college level and he could be straight dominant, the #1 ovrl. pick, and much more suited and ready for the pro game.

Really? Props to Texas; they did beat OSU last year and that game launched them toward their championship. In fact though, it was a closely contested come-from-behind victory at the end of the game. OSU played most of the game without Troy Smith as I recall because he violated team rules. "Couldn't compete" is a little over stated; this OSU team is much better offensively than last year's, although their defense isn't as good.

I understand the pride people have in the Texas victory last year, but there are some limits to their greatness.

Actually I did not want Vince Young, but I wouldn't mind seeing him in a Texans uniform. He's mobile enough to run Kubiak's offense, and has the arm to go downfield. Kubiak said recently one problem we have had this year is only going 3-4 yards every play, and we needed to have the ability to go downfield. Russell's arm is strong enough to do just that, and if he falls to #8, I think there should be strong consideration for him.

but onto the other players.

laron landry has looked really good, but he played that first touchdown pretty poorly.

jamarcus russell has been just fine. his play isn't that huge of a deal in terms of his draft stock. it's evident that what will get him drafted so high is his measurables. i still hear a ton of things about his work ethic and laziness.

Sorry when your team beats the proclaimed "Best team ever", in their home state, you tend to be pretty confident of any matchup.

Maybe one day the two schools will be able to face off in a title game, which I would love to see, Tressell is a great game planner. Which is why Loyd Carr has got to go, if Michigan wants to have any chance making it back. Loyd Carr is Tressell's jail house punk and constantly gets out coached in big games, which is the reason for their crappy Bowl record of late.

For all we know he could draft Johnson and then pull Kijana Carter out of some alley. I hate when Oakland has a high pick, you don't know what the hell is going on.

I actually like it when they have a high pick because with Al Davis, you know they'll screw it up.

Props Vinny. the guy is locked and loaded. The only bad I see with the guy is he gets lazy with his feet. But, when he wants one, he can zing it in there. Best Arm I've seen, barr none, since Farve came out. There isn't anything in his game that can't be coached up. I'll bet it's too sweet for Al to pass on. As far as recievers are concerned...the draft is loaded with them, all shapes and sizes...all day long.

ND has been the most overrated school for a couple of years. Weis needs to fire his D coordinator

ND has been blown out everytime they went up against a top tier opponent this year.

Jesse Daniels not starting wont hurt LSU cuz their backup SS Craig Steltz is actually better and leads the team in INT.

On paper and this year LSU should destroy ND like 45 to 13 or something
But i hope LSU doesnt come in there to confident or to cautious cuz i have a feeling ND is going to try to do some big plays earlier and fast.

I hate ND and as u know i love LSU, i just dont like the idea of ND being such a HUGE underdog.

good call

Impressed by - Russel

Not impressed by - Landry, Quinn

The ND LOT seemed to have a good game the times I watched him.

The WR Spanzookskwhatshisname(sp) for ND looks promsing.

What are the chances that Russell is there at pick 8? Leinhart dropped to 10.

Probably slim and none, but strange stuff happens in the draft.

But we do need one who's a quality player. CC Brown and Glenn Earl shouldn't be starting.

I agree but after tonights prefomance, I don't know, I just don't see a first round DB. I'm sorry. He isn't Ronnie Lott. He's a blown up all american who dissappears from games. The interception was nice. Bouncing of Jeff Samarja the first series on the end around was not. I mean if the guy can't handle Samarja, how the heck is he going to handle an NFL power back ? A whole lot of people are reading press clippings on the guy and not watching him play. Won't be the worst pick we ever made for sure. But it'd be up there. You telling me we're going to move down several spots and take the guy, fine. This guy is not the eighth best player on the board. I'm sorry I don't see it.

Where do you think Zenon will go? He looked impressive aside from that one TD to the Shark

Zenon is a junior. He's been pretty solid this season, for the most part. There's been no discussion of him considering leaving early.

Looked good to me so did 18 for Norte Dame. I think 18 outplayed the two stud safties on the field tonight. Embeikwei ?

A couple?!?! They haven't won a bowl game in 13 years and only one of their losses was by less than a TD. Just how long can a school live on past reputation?

Apparently for a long time, I bet if they go 6-6 next year they still make it to a bowl game.

Next to the word OVERRATED in the dictionary is a picture of a leprechaun.

I think Russell can throw the ball as well as Vince Young can run the ball :fireball: (note: this is posted before 07 Allstate Sugar Bowl)

what ya think about him now :shades:

I liked what I saw of Russel, and if he falls to #8 I say we pick him or find someone to trade w/us. Landry on the other hand did not look like a ball hawk type FS. He looked more like a SS, which we already have two of. I can now say I want Nelson over Landry. Great game though!!! ND chokes AGAIN!!! :gathering:

Hey, i'll be the first one to eat crow & say if he falls to us, (not likely) we should take him. People were talking about VY's ease of passing the ball, this dude's arm is extremely Live & is like VY in that he's a load to bring down.

He's just got to work on protecting the ball & not putting so much air under the ball when he throws deep & he's good to go. maybe sit him for a year or so to work on those things & learn the offense & defenses he'll face.

What he lacks in speed, which is not very much IMO, he makes up for with instincts & anticipation which usually have him in the right position, & you can't substitute that with anything else. He is a FOOTBALL PLAYER, much in the mold of Meco in that he may not be protype, but he's still very very good in his own right. He looked good to me, the touchdown was just a good play by the WR on EXCELLENT coverage. Did you notice that Quinn pretty much stayed away from his side & how he had to hold the ball a tad longer in the pocket? I'll have to keep watching Nelson & how he performs this monday, but i'm still leaning towards Landry.

just a couple small observations that can really make a difference in his game: because of his size he is able to shake off arm tackles, stand in the pocket & focus on his options (some would say he looks them down too much) its difficult to knock him off his base foundation. second thing is the rotation of the ball. even on 50 yard bombs he angles the ball so it just floats down so all the receiver has to do is run under it, very easy to catch. they also do not have to come back to him because of his range they can just keep going on those deep posts. little things maybe but they all add up as the total package :twocents:

I want to see him put all of his strength behind a throw. I've never seen a guy throw the ball that far with such little effort.

I really hope he enters the College Football Skills Challenge in a few weeks just to see him in the long ball contest.

would be really fun to see a few more match-ups like USC to face Louisville the winner to play LSU. the winner of that match-up to play the winner of Florida/OSU :pigfly:
