And so it begins

Considering that we're still nearly a month away from the season opening, there is a lot of time to talk about some pressing questions for LSU.

But since today was the first day to look at LSU's freshman class, well, let's let Tigers coach Les Miles take it from here.

"There is some talent there, and we're excited,'' Miles said.

Miles pointed out the play of his two freshman quarterbacks -- Russell Shepard and Chris Garrett -- along with wide receiver Rueben Randle and the defensive line.

Now, for some observations.

You've got to figure that Randle will be given every opportunity to earn playing time as a true freshman. Shepard will get on the field somewhere. Garrett, you've got to figure, will be redshirted. And the defensive line, with Chris Davenport, Sam Montgomery and Bennie Logan -- you've got to figure some if not most of those guys are headed for a redshirt.

Anyway, it's great to be thinking about football again.

The national experts must be very impressed w/ LSU football. They are in most pre-season top 10 polls despite the QB inexperience and unproven WRs and D linemen. But the talent is obviously there. It won't be wasted this year.
