Brian Kelly gets former Purdue commit Rickie Collins to flip to his LSU football family.

Look at Brian Kelly playing Spoilermaker, as the new LSU football coach was able to convince former Purdue commit Rickie Collins to join his family.

Collins had been committed to Purdue since early October of last year.

Less than two months after officially visiting West Lafayette in early June, Collins decommitted on Aug. 1. Nine days later, Collins joined Kelly’s growing LSU football family. The four-star quarterback is a Baton Rouge native and plays high school ball at Woodlawn, so how could he turn down playing for the Tigers?

As it is with anything these days, nothing is official until that Hayes Fawcett graphic hits Twitter.

Rickie Collins flips from Purdue to join Brian Kelly’s growing LSU football family

Kelly is just getting started, as he’s not done winning yet. The good news for LSU fans is Kelly has won everywhere he has been before. From Grand Valley State to Central Michigan to Cincinnati to most notably Notre Dame, all Kelly does is win, win, win, no matter what. Though his Tennessee Williams accent needs some work, Kelly should have no issues recruiting in Louisiana here shortly.

After landing Walker Howard last cycle, Kelly landed the No. 13 quarterback in the country for 2023. According to the 247Sports Composite, Collins is the No. 12 overall prospect from the state of Louisiana and the No. 177 player nationally. Though native son Arch Manning is in this same recruiting cycle, good for Kelly being able to keep this local product at home for this LSU rebuild.

The good news is by halfway through his second season at the helm, Kelly should have LSU on the verge of being something fierce. It took a lot for him to leave Notre Dame, but the opportunity to lead one of the very best programs in the best conference in the sport was too good of an offer to pass up. Once Kelly gets his offense rolling, Alabama and Texas A&M better watch out for LSU.

As long as LSU does a better job of protecting its state’s borders, the Tigers should return to form.

News | Black Star Pirate BBQ in Richmonds San Pablo Harbor to close in November

RICHMOND — The beloved Black Star Pirate BBQ at Point San Pablo Harbor in Richmond will close its doors in November.

Chef Tony Carracci and his partner, Miss Suzie, announced on Oct. 1 that they lost their lease for the building, a “hidden gem” tucked away on a serene stretch of the San Francisco Bay’s shoreline.

The restaurant’s last day will be Nov. 27 — eight more weeks of Southern comfort food and live music.

“We have had the best two years of our lives here at this harbor — it’s been so amazing, so great and y’all have made it so wonderful for us that it’s beyond words,” Carracci said in a video posted on the restaurant’s Instagram. “It’s sad, and we all want to cry, but you know what? It’s okay. We’re not going away, we’ll find a place. But for the next two months, October and November, come play with us.”

Located at1900 Stenmark Drive, accessible only by water or winding roads that pass Point Molate, the Black Star Pirate BBQ first began serving up plates of brisket, ribs, greens and cowboy beans in October 2020. Diners often raved about the sweeping ocean views from the restaurant’s outdoor patio, complete with houseboats and Burning Man art installations, while live bands provided the soundtrack, free of charge.

Black Star Pirate BBQ’s popularity skyrocketed during the pandemic, and was once dubbed “one part New Orleans, one part old-school Haight-Ashbury.”

Carracci, a former owner of several San Francisco restaurants and nightclub clubs in the 1980s and ’90s, will be keeping Southern comfort food, art and live music alive until details come together for Black Star Pirate BBQ’s next steps; in August, he and Suzie opened Baltic Kiss, located at 135 Park Place inside Richmond’s historic Baltic building, to cook up New Orleans-inspired fare, including candied pork belly, Creole-style barbecued shrimp and catfish po’boys.

But until the Black Star Pirate BBQ shutters for good at Point San Pablo Harbor, the owners don’t want a minute of quiet.

“We want you to all come out here and make it loud,” Carracci said. “We have eight more weeks — Friday, Saturday and Sunday, two bands a day. Check us out before we go, and just remember the magic that was created here by you all.”
