Just lost a lot of respect for my man Sam Montgomery. I believe Sam didnt give full effort if they were not playing "harder teams" because LSU always plays to their freaking competition and thats also bad coaching too but seriously it is a privilege to play college ball and for him and his teamates not to go 100% is a disgrace to LSU.
Former LSU star Sam Montgomery might have been a little too honest for his own good during an NFL combine interview. The big defensive end freely admitted that he and his mates didn’t always bring their A game to Tiger Stadium:
“Definitely some weeks that we didn’t have to play the harder teams, there were some times that effort wasn’t needed, but it was different when we had the big boys and everything coming in — the ‘Bamas or a South Carolina — and I’d grab real close to those guys and go all out for them. Of course this is a new league, the NFL, so there are no more small teams, small-division teams. It’s all Alabamas, LSUs every week.”
Montgomery won’t tumble down the draft board because of that revelation. He’s still big, fast, strong and he played in the SEC. Projected as a second-rounder, he’ll likely still go in the second round. But you can be sure one or two franchises will decide to steer clear of a guy who says he took not only plays, but games off.
In addition, LSU ticket-buyers might not appreciate finding out that the guys on the field weren’t always trying to give them their money’s worth.
