Re: Does Sean hates LSU

Now wait... there are 351 Division I colleges, 317 Division II and 455 Division III colleges. Now of those 1123 fine institutions of higher learning, only 55 are represented on the current Saints roster as well as a couple who have no apparent alumnus status with any of them. Now to further math up the subject, there are currently only 43 LSU alumni on NFL rosters. Are we needing some type of Goodellism making certain every college is represented on every team?

Don't be bringing your fancy pants math into this perfectly good conspiracy theory.

And of those 1123 fine institutions, how many are worth a crap at football? Also, last time I checked, LSU was leading the league in alumni. That isn't counting the numerous players over the years who are no longer in the league, that did not play for the Saints.

It is highly unusual for players from such a high profile program, to have almost zero presence in the ENTIRE HISTORY of the Saints.

If you don't recognize the significance of that, then I guess there's no point in explaining it any further.

It's not a conspiracy theory to say that the Saints almost never pick LSU players. It's not a theory at all.

No way we would have won a Championship without Devery on this team.

Who Dat !
And in my opinion Devery Henderson was the best downfield blocker of all the WRs on the team when he played for the Saints.

Over the "Entire History of the Saints" the number of LSU players drafted by team are as follows.

Atl 11
NYG 11
Den 10
SDG 10
Buf 9
Kan 9
Nor 9
Phi 9
Cin 8
Mia 8
New 8
SEA 8
STL 8
Chi 7
Hou/Ten 7
Oak 7
Cle 6
Dal 6
Det 6
Hou 6
Pit 6
SFO 6
Ari 5
GNB 5
TAM 5
Car 4
Min 4
Ind 3
Was 3
Bal 2
Jax 2
NYJ 1

On average each team has selected 6 1/2 LSU players since the Saints have been in existence. The Saints have drafted 9.

The truth is, the Saints draft more LSU players than most teams.

Yes it is. And it's easily disproven.

Re: Does Sean hates LSU

Born in Thibodaux, Louisiana...Mom's born Key West, Florida, raised in Gulfport, Mississippi...Dad's born, raised in Gladewater, Texas, until he moved and attended high school in Lake Charles, LA...

I'm a homer, SEC proud, pull for State until a stronger SEC looks like they've got a title shot, then I get behind them (pretty much hate on the rest of the country kinda thing giving some love to Texas, Clemson, GA Tech, VMI and Military Academies (except Air Force))...

But I could give a rat's arse whether the Saints draft someone from State; in fact, I've only wanted the Saints to draft from LSU two times in the last ten~fifteen years; once, with Glenn Dorsey (fmr Chiefs GM Carl Peterson, can go f*ck himself) and when La'el Collins fell in the draft last season, wanted the Saints to take him or Ali Marpet in the second round...

Knew we had no shot with Beckham and wasn't butt-hurt over it; remember drafting Al Woods and the MFer showed up outta shape and was rightly cut; Honey-Badger, happy, neaux, thrilled he got his act together and proud of how he's getting it done like he should get it done, but he was more of a risk than I wanted the Saints to take (in fact, it probably worked our for him because he went to the Cardinal and played with Peterson)...

Neaux, I don't get the butt-hurt for having no LSU players on the roster, not one bit...
