The Cardinals did not allow Kingsbury to pick any of his defensive staff, so I doubt if he has any say on the draft.

It was tongue in cheek.

That makes the dearth of UT draft picks even more profound.

I just used dearth and profound in the same sentence.....it's time to go to bed.

Through 4 rounds LSU has had 12 players drafted.  I have to believe they will be a much weaker team next season, and primed for a loss to Texas.  Yes, we have had very few drafted this year, but we have experience returning.  I’m sure LSU has quality guys to step into the roles of the drafted players, but I have to believe that they will be a bit green and this will decrease the LSU team talent next season.  Now fill up the shot glass with burnt orange Kool-Aid and chug.

Out of that eligible players list, Texas really only had 6 guys eligible: Jones, Johnson, Duverney, Shack, McCulloch and Roach.  So, 50% got drafted and 2 already got picked up as UDFA.  Texas should have a good showing next year, although I'm hoping they don't because that means Ossai, Sterns, Green and other Jr's. are returning for their senior season.
