So you knew it was coming…or did you? LSU has given quarterback and occassional game day hero/train wreck Ryan Perrilloux the Louisiana-shaped boot. And I gotta say, it makes me sad.
Maybe not so much as an LSU fan, but as a foe of people with talent who can’t help but get in their own way. For me, Ryan Perrilloux symbolizes so many talented athletes out there who get the shot of a lifetime and have no idea what to do with it. (Yes Michael Vick, I am most certainly picturing you while I write this…and you too Pacman Jones…and you too Bengals roster.)
Perrilloux’s been accused in a club fight, of using a fake id to get into a casino, of skipping classes and he’s been linked to some sort of counterfeiting scheme. Why would one of the most sought after high school quarterbacks in the state go out of his way to act a damn fool once in college? It just doesn’t make sense.
