LSU is the biggest rival outside of the state for Ole Miss. So obviously Cooper, Peyton and Eli could not attend LSU.
Peyton ended up at Tennesee because OleMiss was under NCAA sanctions and Billy Brewer has just been fired. So Peyton couldn't go to Ole Miss and couldn't go to LSU, so Tennesee was where he ended up. Cutcliffe was Peyton's offensive coordinator so when he became the head coach at Ole Miss, this made it a lot more attractive to Eli so he followed in his father's footsteps and there at Ole Miss, Eli was king. So now I hope y'all understand why no one in the Manning family went to or played for LSU and why none of their future offspring ever will.

I would of thought they would play outside the SEC period to avoid competing with Ole Miss.

Thats what all the BS with the 2 Mannings is about in the NFL, Neither of them wants to be in the same conference competing against one another. Its why Eli said he wouldnt sign for the Chargers.

I would of thought they would avoid playing in the SEC unless it was for Ole Miss, to see Payton go to Tenn........now that was interesting altogether.

If I recall Bum was run out of town like everyone else who ever coached their.

If he was correct he would have at least made it to the NFC Championship without Manning.
Problem with Bum is he tried to make the Saints into the Oilers which were sorta successful in the 70s but failed to make the SB since Oakland and Pitt ruled that decade, to further the problem though, the players he kept bringing in from Houston was washed up by that point in time.

You see he basically did nothing to better the Saints, he tried to make them into the Oilers, which the Oilers never did anything either.

I wouldn't trade Drew for either or all of them.
