That still isn’t our best team. John Lewis III hasn’t run with the 4x100 team yet and he’s been a mainstay if that squad the last couple of years. LSU was running their top guys.

But, this was good for the Coogs. Helps wake them up a bit and gives them some early motivation.

I was there. Bad look by LSU but stuff of rivalries.

Boling headed to Georgia.

I’m OK with it, except for the bump. I like to see emotion from these competitors.

Although, I hope when we beat them later on, we don’t even acknowledge them afterwards.

Coach Lewis actually appeared to like the interaction. Fired his guys up. Truth is, he is for anything that brings more attention and press to T&F. Consistent theme in his tweeter feed.

What?!? Are we sneaking Burrell back in for the NCAA’s? :laughing:
