On Ryan Perrilloux...

As Ray Patterson said after Homer's failed efforts as Springfield's trash commisioner -- "Oh...oh, gosh...you know, I'm not much on speeches, but it's so gratifying to leave you wallowing in the mess you've made. You're screwed, thank you, bye."
Well, we really aren't much for speeches, but seeing Perrilloux fail makes us happy. We argued during this season amongst ourselves whether Lyin' Ryan had turned a corner to become a contributing member of society. That argument appears settled, for now, in favor of the negative.
We wrote about the Perrilloux situation the last time he was suspended. With him, and there is certainly a chance that he'll be back on the team, LSU is one of the most dangerous teams in the nation. Without him LSU seems an awful lot like Texas in 2006 with redshirt freshman Jarrett Lee holding the reigns.
There are three lessons we take from this story.
1) LSU can certainly bounce back, winning the SEC is certainly still a possibility
2) LSU faces Appy St on August 30, things could get interesting
3) Once again, we think Texas may have dodged a bullet here
