a sorry situation behind the scene
Probably more of a case of young men wanting to get paid. IMHO

+1 think its more of the kids that lsu recruits. Their goal is to get to the pros as quickly as possible and that usually is bc the situation they are in. Bad financial situation growing up, having to support a child, school not agreeing with them, etc
almost certainly...IF a kid is confident of being drafted then he is taking a risk coming back for another year.
I agree, especially if you play on the defensive side of the ball at LSU. I think our defensive players realize that the offense most likely won't change much, therefore leaving them on the field longer than normal. In turn, creating more opportunities for injury. I feel that if our offense doesn't improve and become more consistent then we will start to see more and more redshirt sophomores and juniors leaving early with a
3rd round or later draft grade.
With our inept offense, the risk of injury on defense might just be too high for these kids to pass up late round money.
so you think that the reason why some of our JR's on defense left because of the number of plays they had to play on the field? its all about the money and dreams of making it to the nfl.. if they are good enough to be drafted high enough to get millions most of the time they will enter the draft.. getting hurt if they come back is a fear of theirs for sure and will also factor in some but its about money not # of offensive plays..

One thing to remember re: juniors leaving is the new collective bargaining agreement. The first contract a player gets isn't as much as it used to be--it's more important to get that 2nd contract as early as possible b/c that's when the players really get paid.
Finally, someone gets it!!
