Default Lattimore to play again...?

I know this thread title is ballsy, and I'm prepared to catch the flack, but I saw this posted on Twitter. Latti didn't refute it, but liked it. It really got me thinking, do you guys think he would try to play again? To me, he seemed well content with moving on. Love that guy.

No. He's been out of the game too long, and it's not worth the risk.

The famous 'sources say' from a random dude on twitter. I'd say it's legit.

I feel like this is probably just a joke in reference to the Elliott suspension. I doubt Marcus is going to try to play again. Miss watching that guy run though.

Could be true BUT....

Tryout - could be an actual tryout or could be an intentionally misleading synonym for an interview. Tryout seems unlikely for reasons already stated.

Cowboys - Dallas Cowboys? OSU Cowboys? Some HS team cowboys? Cowboys, the restaurant? Who knows.

Despite what the guy wants you to believe, the fact is the post is too vague to tell what it means. That is, if there is any truth in there at all. Since ML "liked" it, I'd be surprised if there isn't something to it, but no idea what that something might be.

Default Re: Lattimore to play again...?

I'll bite on the hypothetical. The only issue would be the knee. If the knee is healtby then yes he could play again. Its not like he's been gone 10 years! He would've been a senior in 2013 but was with the 49ers rehabbing. 2014-2016 yes he wasnt playing. Thats 3 years. We've all seen stories of guys who went into the military for 4 years then came back to play FBS or even pro.

Particularly in modern football since they've softened it up so much. No 2 a Days. No horse collars. No hits to head.

My common sense says this wont ever happen. I believe in Marcus and think HE could do it, kid can do anything he puts his mind to. But...NCAA is spitting out a dozen solid RBs every draft. You can get 4 or 5 guys with 2011 Lattimore skill sets in the mid to late rounds. You WONT get one with his mind and character but physical skill yes.

So I dont see anyone taking much interest in this. If he was publicly asking for a shot, training with some elite training staffs, posting vids of himself crushing it in RB drills....then Id think otherwise.


MY VOTE remains Lattimore 2020 for POTUS or SC GOVERNOR!!!!

Marcus would probably love to suit up again but he knows the risk. Besides he seems very happy being a coach. Maybe one day he'll be able to come back to his alma mater.

Agree, Marcus went through more pain and rehab than any normal man would endure ''twice'' and can still walk. The most we could hope for is a couple ''little Marcus's'' running around in a few years imo ..

If he played again, he'd have to pay back the $2 million he got from his insurance policy.

Default Re: Lattimore to play again...?

It still hurts to think about "what if." If he had not gotten injured so much, I still believe South Carolina would have two Heisman winners, and at the least, have won multiple SEC East Championships. Also think we would have beaten FSU in the Peach Bowl, and would have had a 10 win season that year, and Spurrier's last few years might look a little bit different. But I digress.

But I'm glad he is doing well and has found his passion in coaching. Maybe he'll be back on the sidelines at Williams Brice one day.

Marcus would never live to his potential by being just a great football player. It would take up too much of his time, and prevent him from influencing so many young lives in a positive way. He has said he is at peace with his decision to retire, and I for one couldn't be happier for him and support everything he does. Great example of a human being!

I could see him going and interviewing for an off the field position. A consultant or something like that.
