OCDeep doo doo with Perrilloux

I bite my nails. I have a late relative who was an alcoholic. Does that mean me/him have/had obsessive compulsive disorder?

No.

That's why I'm having a real hard time with Ryan Perrilloux playing the OCD card in this Yahoo Sports story. To his credit Perrilloux doesn't blame his OCD for all the shenanigans that went on at LSU but it's still out there as kind of an excuse. It's pretty hard to pinpoint a mental disorder as a cause for trying to pass a fake I.D. at a casino.

I hate having to put a label on everything. Maybe Perrilloux is just an irresponsible bad guy, not afflicted by some disorder. The OCD sure didn't hurt him when he helped LSU win a national championship.  

We find out in the story that Perrilloux isn't exactly an upstanding citizen. (You knew that) He missed a post-bowl team meeting because he overslept. (How does that happen?) He has a child out of wedlock who was born prematurely. Best wishes to the child and mother but the father's future can't be good.

It sounded to me like Les Miles went to the absolute last mile with his quarterback. OCD or no OCD, he had to finally let him go.

There have to be all kinds of red flags for the NFL ... if, IF Perrilloux ever gets that far.

Sorry I late in making a comment, but I have been in Mexico on a mission trip.

LSU is no different that most big time football schools.  You take high school players and try to make college players out of them.  Some are more talented than others and that is the ones you go after.  You are willing to put up with a little more with the better players.  But in the end, it comes down to team work.  One individual clog does not turn the wheel.  It might be an inportant clog, but in the end the wheel will not turn.

The problem, is that the big clogs are pampered all their athletic careers and usually have no moral standards or for that matter, no standards at all.

Perrilloux was a big clog, but lacked the grease that was needed to make the wheel turn.  I wish him the best at Jacksonville.  Hope he can turn his life around and be a super star.  He has the talent.

 Lets not the forget the fact that neither Aaron Brooks or Jamarcus Russell are from Louisiana.  And Stk lest we forget about Maurice Clarett,or will you not claim him ?  Didn't think so.  If you wanna bash a team for players that make poor decisions off the field thats fine, but if you think LSU is the only school letting "sub-intelligent" players coming in the program then you need to stop dreaming.

As an LSU football fan, Perrilloux's dismissal obviously doesn't make me the happiest person in the world. However, as an LSU student and a friend of many players on the team, I can say with a great degree of certainty that LSU's football team is 10 times better without him. The players I've talked to all felt he let the team down and did not want him to lead the team because he couldn't be trusted at all. After reading all the comments that bash the program and make it look like LSU has a "win-at-any-cost" mentality, I have to ask, "What did LSU do wrong here?"  No one said anything when LSU lured him away from Texas. In fact, Coach Miles was praised and ended up with a great class. He gave the kid a chance and he blew it. You can't tell me that LSU is the only program with one or two bad apples on the team. I mean, there are over 100 COLLEGE guys on every team! How many programs do you think have these types of players but cover their mistakes because they  don't want negative publicity (such as this) and just want to win no matter what? At least LSU's problem was a 19 yr-old football player and not  the athletic office (i.e.- USC with Reggie Bush and O.J. Mayo; Alabama a fews years ago; Auburn in the early 90's; and many more). The only reason this is big news is because Perrilloux has talent- so I guess if you want to blame Coach Miles and LSU for anything, you could say they shouldn't have offered the #1 recruit in the country a free education to play football for a Top 5 program 75 miles away- and then openly kick him off the team for breaking the rules. Doesn't seem fair though.

Ok Enough about how this kid messed up. He's moved on. Out of all the players in college football people seem to be stuck on this guy. He's at a D2 school now. Stop giving him negative publicity. Yes he messed up. Whether it was minor chargers or big ones he stll broke team rules i agree, but let the kid get on wth his life. By the way dodd, it shows ur character when u have to write about his child being born out of wedlock but to mention it being born prematurely like it was Perrilloux's fault was uncalled for. Next time think before you write!

Well, lets see. Archie went to Ole Miss. Then Cooper went to Ole Miss. Then Peyton went to Tennessee. Then Eli went to Ole Miss. Yep it looks like they are out of Louisiana and stayed out of Louisiana. Personally, I would consider that smart.

 

Peyton and Eli were born and raised in Louisiana.  They are Louisiana homegrown.  Aaron Brooks and JaMarcus Russell were from other states.  So Virginia has to take responsibility for the airhead that is Aaron Brooks.  JaMarcus Russell?  The jury is still out on him until he plays.

OCD - Overly Coddled D***head

All Louisiana people have to remember is Aaron Brooks, Jamarcus Russell, and...............Perriloux.  Three very physically gifted guys that could not, cannot, or will never live up to their athletic potential.   Brooks could have been great, but he just didn't have it upstairs.  Russell will flop in Oakland because he just doesn't have it upstairs.   And, obviously, Perriloux just doesn't have it upstairs.  Who's your next mental giant Louisiana sports fans?

 

OK, let's see...JaMarcus Russell is from Alabama and Aaron Brooks is from Virginia.  Perrilloux is the only one from Louisiana.  So let's try look a little deeper before comments like that.
