LSU confident that Canada can boost their SEC contention

Ed Orgeron's Brilliant Answer to 'Should Kids Play High School Football?'

That's a long ways from now, of course, a long way from this extravaganza, where this Baton Rouge standout leaped from the shadows - even more so than he already has. Guice's father was murdered when Guice was a child. It's not how strong you are in the weight room, it's about how your performance is on the field.

Guice has a 5-year-old brother he would like to see raised in a safer neighborhood. It's about setting his family up financially for the future.

"Getting the job was well deserved for him", Guice said. "I don't want my brother to be brought up in the same area I was". "My players feel that". It's all about my family. He knows how much weight Fournette would lift, knows how many sprints he would run. Safety Jamal Adams, cornerback Tre'Davious White, middle linebacker Kendell Beckwith, tailback Leonard Fournette, center Ethan Pocic and wide receivers Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural are gone. At last year's SEC Media Days, Fournette garnered a ton of attention as a preseason Heisman Trophy front-runner.

When LSU running back Derrius Guice took his seat at his designated dais at SEC Media Days, the flood of reporters rushing to get prime position to ask the former five-star questions could nearly be called a stampede.

Guice made it through, bad ear and all, leaving in his wake hundreds of smiling and/or laughing reporters at the Wynfrey Hotel.

Guice ran for more than 250 yards twice - against Arkansas and Texas A&M.

Microsoft announces internally its new 'commercial and consumer' sales model
Like most companies, Microsoft too intends to now focus more on cloud computing and business services instead of just software. The magnitude of the potential layoffs is unclear, but the WSJ says they will likely occur in offices all around the globe.

Of course, LSU won't merely be content with winning the Citrus Bowl after the bar was raised by Saban and Miles with two national titles in the 2000s. With Derrius being a smaller, stockier guy, I think he's a guy that can do more. "That's a huge compliment", Guice said. And Orgeron got fired from Ole Miss a few months later in 2007 after a 3-9 season that included an 0-8 finish in the SEC. I don't feel the pressure, but I do acknowledge that it's out there. I can't do it alone. Part of it, not unfairly, comes from his previous failings as a full-time head coach - in the same division he is now coaching.

His media appearance might not have been preceded by that of first-year LSU head coach Ed Orgeron.

"I'm excited, I'm honored to be the head coach at LSU", said Orgeron.

"There's opportunity for every young man [inaudible]". Matt's going to open up some holes for him.

He can certainly lean on running back Darrius Guice, whose breakout 2016 season included an SEC-best 1,387 rushing yards, with two games of 250-plus. He's not concerned with Penn State's Saquon Barkley or Georgia's Nick Chubb.

Dressed in a pink suit he purchased at Brown & Brown Custom Clothiers in Baton Rouge - one that he had to have after seeing it on a mannequin - Guice said he is exclusively focused on himself and his team. "So we can't just point to Alabama, but they are the benchmark that the head coach at LSU must beat, and I think the way to beat Alabama is to recruit on their level. I'll encourage her to do whatever, but playing football ain't one of them".
