Montgomery admits bets with Mingo, lack of effort at LSU 


surprised

Quote:


LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery detailed hundreds of dollars worth of bets with teammate Barkevious Mingo while they were in college, and a $5,000 bet on which one is drafted higher (which he’s almost certainly going to lose).


Quote:

“You know, some weeks when we didn’t have to play the harder teams, there were some times when effort was not needed,” Montgomery said. “But when we had the big boys coming in, the ‘Bamas or the South Carolinas, I grabbed close to those guys and went all out.

I see now, why all of Les Miles' teams at LSU, played to the level of their competition.

This is very disturbing to me?    The fact that he's not smart enough to NOT talk about it publicly is even more alarming!!!!

That's not going to get it done in the NFL, all out all the time is what he'll have to do to stay on the field.

Disappointed that Coach Miles didn't notice and put a stop to it.  If someone is not putting out effort, it should be very noticable on the reels of film they watch!

This disgusts me.  With that mentality, I'm glad he left.

I agree it is only natural for stars to take off a play every now and then but they should never admit it. He also should never have admitted the gambling the NFL hates to hear that word it. That could have cost him some money I bet (no pun intended) his agent cringed when hearing that.
