|Packing up memories|
Jake was packing up some things in his room last week (don't even ask why) when he came across a Gameday program from 1999.
Inside was a poster of the seniors on that 1999 LSU football team.
I looked over the names and pictures with amazement.
We have Rondell Mealey, Damien Woods, Jeremy Witten, Danny Boyd and Charles Smith. Not bad with some guys who maybe could get significant playing time nowadays although two of them are punters.
Then we have Theo Williams, Johnny Mitchell, Andy Stroup, Alcender Jackson, Corey Gibbs and Jamal Pack. Great guys who had their moments, but not the kind of names to put fear in opposing Southeastern Conference opponents.
That team went 3-8 overall and 1-7 in the Southeastern Conference.
The three wins were over San Jose State, North Texas and Arkansas. That was Gerry DiNardo's fifth and final year. Dinardo did not coach in the win against Arkansas, the final game of the season. Hal Hunter was the interim coach for that one.
