LSU fullback Connor Neighbors is doing more than providing extra blocking for QB Zach Mettenberger in Saturday’s SEC clash with Georgia.
In advance of the game, Neighbors is coming up with as many hateful, inappropriate and vile things to say to his teammate and good friend – the better to prepare him for the insults hurled at him from fans of the Bulldogs, whom Mettenberger spent his redshirt freshman season with in 2009-2010 before being dismissed from the program for sexual misconduct.
“I’m going to heckle him throughout the whole week so when game day comes around he’s used to it,” Neighbors told TigerRag. “I’m going to talk smack all week long so he can drown it out.”
That’s what friends are for.
