These quotes are not in the order in which they appear in the article:
"I look at it as I can go there and do something different. Here at LSU, they’re going all the way almost every year, but it would be cool to bring something different to Miami that they haven’t done in a while. I like the idea of being different.”
While there have been rumors that his family wants him to stay in-state for school, Williams says that isn’t the case whatsoever.
“My family tells me just to do whatever is best for me. They don’t have a big LSU background and they’re not big LSU fans. They grew up watching SWAC football, which is Southern and Grambling and schools like that. My family just started getting familiar with LSU when they started recruiting me. They tell me that whatever decision I make is the one I want to make and make sure my heart is into it. They are behind me with any school I choose, whether it’s out of state or whatever.”
LSU fans have been sending negative messages to Williams on twitter about Miami, but he says it doesn’t affect him.
“I just tell them it’s my decision. A lot these people didn’t even know me ‘till last year. I really don’t understand people on my twitter saying all that stuff because that’s between me and my family, but I really don’t let it bother me.”
The pass-rushing specialist has a good idea of when he will be making his choice.
“I’m gonna make my decision right after I take my officials. I’m not gonna wait till the Under Armour game. I’ll make my decision before the game, but then make it public there.”
I'll say this for Miami, I never would have thought the "Come play for us, we aren't any good" recruiting pitch would be very effective.
Nothing he has said leads me to believe he will come to LSU.. He seems to not even like LSU for some reason and is obsessed with being "different".... I guess he likes the "Thug-U" crap and likes to lose, I dunno.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
I think it's more "LSU will win with or without me, I want to go somewhere where I can really make a difference."
His quote, and my interpretation of it, both reek of coach speak. Makes me think Golden is using the Dinardo plan of talking kids into being a part of a great turnaround.. He's at a place where the likelihood of it happening is pretty darn good. Sure the penalties are going to probably make it impossible for 2013 and even 2014 guys like Tim and a bunch of other kids from reaping the rewards of it, but Al has to start somewhere. He's got to get a base group of players to endure the penalties with..Kiffin laid out a plan he can follow. Meyer is implementing a similar plan. In my opinion, the longer it takes for the NCAA to administer the penalties, the weaker they will be. Sure is taking a while. The penalties won't affect the 2013 class as much iff they wait until after NSD.
If more guys to start thinking this way, the.thorn in our Eastern side will go away quicker than we will.

I'm feeling better and better about losing him to Miami.
"There are some reasons for this that we cannot get into right now."
I'm there to play for the team, not myself.". DS
Chances he probably feels like Toshrio Davis if he chooses Miami a year from now? 99.8%?
Hate to break it to him but Miami is a program in the tank with no hope of revival in the NEAR future that he would be there. He's a great talent but 1 good guy at DE won't push them from mediocre to National Champions.
Paul Mainieri = 328-135 ovr (70.8%), 119-89 SEC (57.2%), 21-10 NCAA (67.7%), 3 CWS App., 1 National Title
It's your coach. It seems ever since the NC game and his idiotic approach when that qb flipped to ND it may be more problems internally than fans know about.
Or maybe its the NFL pipeline thug-U provides.
He was and when he switched late he cited that he couldn't leave his kid behind.
