    Luck has *everything* to do with it. For all of us. Read Malcolm Gladwell's, "Outliers: The Story of Success."

    Been watching college ball for over 40 years, best draft qb, period, hope he doesn't get caught up in the hype.

    Coach of Nebraska said do you think he's better than what we have ,duh this was meant to be. Plain and simple. And Alabama fans are why people don't like bama, but hey they have very little to be proud of. What happens when saban retires , he is getting tired of the fans and media accepting perfection every year. He is the goat. But time is cyclical, and doesn't stop for any man,that too will be broken. But I like saban, but we found him before y'all did. If he wouldn't have gone to Miami?,which he says he regrets. Where would y'all be????

    The definition of "LUCK" is when preparation meets opportunity. Joe prepared tirelessly and so was able to meet the opportunity when presented with it and be successful.

      Luck has nothing to do with it! What dictionary do you use? This is what I found:
      success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own actions.

      Joe definitely didn't get here by luck!

    This season has been the stuff that movies are made about. Just unreal. Geaux Tigers. Most fun season I’ve had in a long damn time.

    Joe has earned it. No luck involved. He went seeking for an opportunity, and our great Coach Oeaux, signed him on. The rest is history my friends. Congratulations Joe "Heisman" Tiger Burreaux! And congrats to all the Tiger Players, coaches, etc......

    Don't overlook Burrow's athletic ability. Mr. Football in Ohio and was also an all-state basketball player.

    When I read the title I read it as “Luke has nothing to do with it,” so I watched whole video wondering who Luke was and when he was gonna start trashing Luke. I didn’t realize it said luck until after... I think I might be dyslexic

    Luck is a very important factor for any athlete. This guy has BUST written all over him. You can't be so overconfident when you are a senior and your collegiate career has only one good season.

    Love this kid. He has worked his tail off...Broke his hand at OSU..may have been over Haskins at that point. He has some dimension that make him better than Haskins I do believe. If he has to run he can..and well enough to get the job done. Definitely better feet than Haskins.

      Wasn't Ohio State's decision. Joe broke his hand in spring ball and fell behind Dwayne Haskins. OSU would have loved for him to stay. But then Justin Fields would not be there, and OSU has him for another year. Worked out for LSU, OSU, and Joe Burrow.

      @California Dreaming I will be sure to come back and see if you're willing to eat crow if it happens. After the season the LSU Tigers have had, you better be ready for that to happen. That is, if you even make it past Clemson!

      If anything I’d rather say he’s a Drew Brees because they’re close. Joe is going to have a tremendous life ahead of him . We’ve had a great season he will be truly missed. That will always follow him

      Tell us... Did you notice that during the entire College Football Awards show there was not one mention of Alabama, any of its players or their sawed off robot of a head coach? It was as if The Evil Red Machine had fallen off the face of the Earth...BTW... Down laugh ALL of your ASS off... There won't be anything left of you....

    If those officials made the correct call instead of letting their feelings about Alabama in the way, lsu would have lost. That was some BS. The receiver was standing out of bounds. The receiver was standing there watching and never threw his hat. Burrow is hyped up. Without those receivers and especially his running back, LSU would have lost at least 3 games.

      sallie brigham i know. I had responded earlier to someone that said that the reason burrow looked good was only because of his receivers. I was kind of agreeing with her. And then saying the other person was just being ignorant by saying joe only looked good bc of his receivers

    • sallie brigham
      sallie brigham 28 days ago

      @Andrew Bennett I don't think she was saying that.

      Heather I’m a diehard tiger fan. And a student at LSU. I’m well aware of the summer of 10000 catches. Everyone on the offense has gotten better. I know it’s a team effort. But to say that the only reason that burrow is good is because his receivers make him look good, is just ignorant
