BTW, a lot of people are going to openly question why AJ isn't there, and if it had anything to do with the Tweets with the Honey Badger. Probably a bit, but Saban sees Media Days as a reward, usually for senior leaders. Jones is an obvious choice, followed by Square and Williams. Actually, the guy I'm surprised isn't going is Nico Johnson.
AJ not going is a surprise to me, especially after all the "this is AJ's team" talk. I thought Jesse Williams would be another to go, or Fluker.
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
I prefer teams to take seniors. I think it is especially strange to see teams take sophomores.
I like putting Big Square in there. Get him in that leader role and a face for the football team and university. Everybody always talks about AJ and Nico, good to see somebody unexpected in there.)
Odell Beckham for LSU?? Kinda weird. Only a SO.
Agreed, based on leadership.
I like it as a reward to your senior leaders. It's an honor for the guys who fulfill their eligibility. It's a shame we can only take 3, there are a lot of quality seniors on our team. Nice for guys like Williams who doesn't get the fanfare some of the other guys get
Never Gets Old
Saban has taken underclassmen most years, like Rolando, Ingram, Trent, Hightower (twice). So, it might have more to do with awarding/recognizing other qualities in addition to being a senior.
Also has to do with people who will answer appropriately... Not that AJ or Nico couldn't, but I like the 3 we have going... They all represent the university with class
Robert Lester is one I'm surprised is not going!
