I hope that y'all had a great weekend and made it through safely.

Unfortunately, former LSU and New England Patriot defensive back Marquise Hill was not so fortunate, as he was involved in a jet ski mishap and drowned in Lake Ponchatrain over the holiday weekend.

Very tragic for such a young and talented individual with the whole world in front of him. He was one of the very best defensive players in all of college football, and won a BCS National Championship with LSU and a Super Bowl with the Patriots by the time he was 23. Hill was a total and complete badass, and I actually got to see him in person at the LSU-Georgia regular season game in Baton Rouge in 2003.

My thoughts and condolences go out to his family as well as the LSU family and also the Patriots organization. What a terrible reminder of how absolutely insignificant sports are.
