Photo: LSU strength coach posts brutal message about his players

 
LSU strength and conditioning coach Tommy Moffitt has a message for any NFL scouts who may inquire about the character of some of his players:

Attention NFL Scouts: The following athletes miss workouts and always have an excuse. These men lack the self discipline and motivation to take care of their responsibilities. I will not answer questions regarding their performance numbers or character as they care only about themselves.

At first glance, this probably seems like a pretty brutal and humiliating attempt at disparaging his players. But dig a little deeper and it appears as though the sign was a questionable attempt at motivating his players instead.

Although the sign began surfacing on the internet Friday night, Moffitt claims that the message is "old news" and that it stems from the players missing a class.

It looks like Moffitt's unusual techniques are paying off after all.

  1. This is probably the real deal, LSU should have won the National Championship last year and this year too.

    1. What is your reasoning for you to believe that they should have won both years? That was a completely idiotic post. Last time I checked they got smoked by bama last year In championship game and then lost to them again this year!

  2. LSU player are some of the best but they somehow never seem to bring "booty enough" to win the big ones. I knew they would lose the last time time they played Alabama the minute they came on the field. On field swagger and off field antics seem to always leave them short. They need a winning attitude.

  6. I think LSU has as good of a team as for as it goes for talent but as for as it goes for heart they are not with the kind od talent they have they should played a lot better against all of the teams this season I will give they played great against Bama but the rest well it speaks for itself fan of LSU for since I was eight these last two season they played with no heart

  7. I have to disagree about LSU not playing with "heart". I believe the Tigers played with heart, but after the Alabama loss, we seemed to just go through the motions to do enough to win. I believe that was due to the youth on this team and the disappointment that loss brought to the season. That attitude is not typical, and hopefully, will not surface again. I think we will see LSU play real "LSU football" Monday night.

    Alabama is on a roll right now. Saban has it all going in the right direction for the most part. You are narrow minded enough to ignore the fact LSU softened up Alabama so A&M could beat them the following week. LSU did not finish in that game, or we would be in Miami. Watch out for my Tigers in 2013!

  8. Right on! These players have a free-ride to college. Alot of other college kids are financing their dream while the skip class, skip work-outs and go raise hell. Accountablity is missing in this country as a whole and the world is kicking our over-privileged american butts. It is good to see that some people still hold these kids accountable. If thse kids think this is tough, wait until they have a boss that will fire them for missing work. Hats off to you coach!!!

  10. I became a Bama fan as a 6th grader selling cokes in Tiger Stadium, but I still follow and know a heck of alot about LSU Football. In seeing this article, my Houndstooth hat is off to the S and C Coach for having the courage to try to slam a message home to these knuckleheads. I think LSU is trying to get over the hump and be a perennial top program. It wouldn't surprise me at all if someone on the team or "close to the program", tipped off the Baton Rouge PD that the Punk and his crew of zipperheads were in that apartment enjoying the ganja. Notice how that Punk Mathieu quickly backpedaled his lousy arse out of Baton Rouge after he made bail. Even this idiot could see that he was no longer wanted near the team, the Univ or in the city. Tigers, you did the same thing against Clemson tonite as you did against The Tide. Memo to LSU Fan: "Leave Les alone, he's the best coach ever to coach the Tigers, including Dietzl, Charlie Mac et al.
