Hard to believe its already been 1 year since Joe Burrow started his record-shattering senior season at LSU. And what a difference a year makes.
With football in one of the weirdest places in American history due to the ongoing pandemic, Burrow is quietly getting started on game 1 and year 1. The Athens, Ohio native and adopted son of Louisiana is suiting up today for the Bengals for the first time.
And to show how much we, as LSU fans, and Louisiana natives, look forward to seeing him in Orange and Black, the LSU hype machine is back with its first new video of the season.
Narrated by Jamarcus Russell, another former one overall pick from LSU, Burrow is seen making his transition from the swamps of Baton Rouge to the plains of the midwest. LSU released the video earlier today, and it has already racked up over 800,000 views as of 11:00 am CST.
While the country continues to battle and wade through the pandemic, football is coming back, and Joe Burrow is ready to make his name ring true again.
