    You know how I know this list is garbage? No Malcolm Mitchell. Best WR for UGA and now also the best CB.

    After that great game vs Bama in the National Championship,why would the honey badger even be considered any trophys/awards.How much did LSU get paid for throwing that game…jmo.

    Isaiah Crowell WAS our most versatile player…….tailback and mule…..AND can play for two football teams in one preseason.

    kozbee, how did those Bama players get away with threatening some LSU players’ lives? That’s what I’d like to know and that ain’t jmo. If you wanna play smartass I can play right along with ya Bubba. Pardon me but I’d like to move on and remember the fiasco as a part of the Past and not look back if you don’t mind. This’ a new season and who knows what it’ll bring? Hopefully we’ll all see the pros and cons of the new playoff system and they’ll get the kinks worked out in time for the NCG.
