    He is all the way down to 308 pounds and has assembled a team of former NFL players and track guys to put Humpty back together again.

    I have never in all my life seen a less accurate quarterback. But I have also never seen a quarterback who looked snazzier in postgame.

    When his uncle and mentor Ray Ray Russell died in 2009, it was all downhill for JaMarcus.

    His Sugar Bowl performance featured a few breathtaking passes. I don't understand why everyone forgot about all the others.

    It's interesting to look back on that LSU team and see the NFL underperformers lining up. Russell is the worst top pick in NFL history. Glenn Dorsey is a moderate bust at this point. Tyson Jackson and LaRon Landry didn't warrant their ridiculously high draft picks. Buster Davis was a horrible first-round pick, made worse when three other receivers on that team (Dwayne Bowe, Early Doucet and Brandon LaFell) ended up much better.

    I remember when Russell walked into the media room at the combine and I think the first or second question was "how much do you weigh?" and he said 270 and about 50 people muttered at the same time, "No fucking way does he weigh 270..."

    Exactly, Vers! Glad someone finally pointed out that Saban recruits are usually overrated busts in the NFL.

    If only Les Miles had more time to coach them up at LSU, like with more recent NFL studs/overachievers such as Patrick Peterson, Stevan Ridley, Trindon Holliday, Lafell, Mo Claiborne, etc. -- all recruited and developed by The Hat.
