No, I don't know what Zach Lee is going to do tonight. But if he chooses to take the money and run, I am going to take it like a man and say "oh... bummer". I am not going to scream, cry, flip out, kick a door, or anything.
You know why? Because LSU baseball and LSU football are both larger than this one kid, and this one kid's decision to leave is not going to destroy these two programs.
LSU baseball and LSU football combined have twenty-seven SEC titles and nine national titles. And Zach Lee would not be the first talented athlete to snub LSU, and you know what? We still have twenty-seven SEC titles and nine national titles. If Zach Lee chooses to go, there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. There will be more heat on Miles, who will have no "QB of the future" tabbed. Paul Mainieri will scramble to scrape together a pitching staff. But tomorrow, we'll still have two killer programs. Those twenty-seven SEC titles and nine national titles are not going to just disappear from the shelves and from our memories.
If Zach stays, shout "hooray!" and be happy for a guy that is going to have a hell of a time representing two historically great programs. But if he chooses to go, don't clothe yourself in woe. Clothe yourself in peace. And more importantly, clothe yourself in purple and gold. LSU will survive the Zachocalypse whether he stays or goes.
