Did his parents sign the permission slip? Damn that cat looks young. Great hire though. I'm excited to finally get some energetic coaches into the athletic department.

It's about time LSU makes a good move for basketball. I don't understand what takes so long to make good hires in sports? If you just do your homework you will be successful. A successful BB program can bring in millions, and every dollar counts these days. Players want to be at a good program and coached by a great teacher, I think LSU now has that so this should turn around pretty quickly. Depending on what moves he makes in recruiting he could have the stands packed as soon as next year. Fans simply want a show, they want to see the game being played strategically, when you have that you have a shot at winning and I'm pretty sure that's all the fans want. Hold that tiger

Everything I've heard is positive. A young, energetic, tactical coach who can recruit in the South is just what the Dr. ordered. I hope it translates to wins on the court and NCAA tournament appearances on a regular basis. Tiger fans deserve a good basketball program again. It's been too long. Welcome Will! Make the Dome rock again!
