First off, I want to say that DeAngelo gets major props for his attitude while he has been at LSU. Here's a guy who starts out at wide receiver (commonly a diva position...make that THE diva position) and is switched to tight end, obviously a much less glamorous position. Despite being an obvious weapon and matchup nightmare there, he never is really utilized in the passing game. But he never (as far as I'm aware) complained about it, just went to work and kept getting bigger, and especially kept working on his blocking. He used to NEVER be in if it was a blocking situation because he was so bad at it, and this year I noticed him making some great blocks multiple times.
Having said that, what the heck happened in the National Championship? I've heard the rumors and read that fake email and I think it's all bull crap coming from "fans"...but then I read a quote like this, "We might call a couple of plays that we worked on, but as for the whole game plan I don't think we used it." I don't think there was any kind of race-driven rebellion before the game or anything...but does anyone have ANY ideas? Any rumors that strike you as more likely than not? I just am still extremely confused about the whole thing...although again, great job by DeAngelo of being classy. Even though he wishes he could've been showcased more he says he realizes that LSU was doing what was best to win the games.
