Skip for my Loux (As In Perrilloux)

With former LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux kicked off the team due to unspecified reasons, LSU football will prepare for the 2008 campaign without him.
Could he have been good? Heck yeah.
Could he have been great? Without a doubt.
And you know what? He still could be ... at Jacksonville State.
J-ville State coach Jack Crowe has spoken to the family of Ryan Perrilloux about a possible transfer to a team with no scholarship quarterbacks on the roster.
Crowe said Tuesday he also had a lengthy discussion with LSU coach Les Miles, who kicked Perrilloux off the defending national championship team after repeated off-the-field problems.
"Les was very kind to spend quite a bit of time explaining the situation to me," Crowe told The Associated Press. "He's very optimistic about him being a successful player and a successful student-athlete."
Crowe said Miles felt Perrilloux arrived with expectations to play as a freshman, but that opportunity diminished.
Perrilloux, who instead was a backup to JaMarcus Russell and Matt Flynn, can transfer to a Football Championship Subdivision team like Jacksonville State without having to sit out a year. The Gamecocks' 2007 starter, Cedric Johnson, was kicked off the team after the season for violating team rules.
