LSU SID responds to Leonard Fournette piece

Earlier Wednesday morning, Mike Florio of NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk wrote an article suggesting that LSU running back Leonard Fournette should sit out his junior season and prepare for the NFL. That caused an uproar all over the college football world as many people are disagreeing with that statement, while a handful of others are supporting that decision.

One person who was probably most upset about the article was Michael Bonnette, the sports information director at LSU. According to College Spun, Bonnette did not appreciate the article and he let his feelings be known about it via Twitter.

Being the SID, I am sure Bonnette received plenty of phone calls and emails inquiring about Fournette’s status with the team. While Bonnette did not confirm or deny Fournette sitting out next season, it’s pretty clear where he thinks the sophomore running back’s head is at right now.

Besides, sitting out the season after one that could end being so historic is a bad idea. Fournette would not benefit at all from missing the 2016 season.
