re: Do we have a final 4 quality basketball team next year?
Posted by Tom Bronco on 4/25 at 10:11 pm
How could anyone possibly know this? The roster isn't even complete yet, one scholarship to go. And even then, lots of teams look good on paper but don't produce. Egos, attitudes, injuries and match ups will be huge. Still not much of a bench for the bigs unless we can score one more. Elbert or Darc...

[quote]Rivers flamed out at Vandy. Bolden did the same at Eastern Michigan. Retting is the rant's last hope that Miles doesn't know shite about QB's. [/quote]So I forget. Who recruited Rivers and Bolden to LSU? Couldn't have been Miles right? It would be nice if he could judge talent correctl...

re: I thought Malik was going to school out of state
Posted by Tom Bronco on 4/22 at 10:13 pm
I think they need to reconsider the one and done and no signing out of high school. That works great for the NBA and other pro leagues. They get to see how the players do against a higher level of competition and they have a year for them to mature physically and mentally. No so good for college bal...

[quote] Just look at how Princeton has given high seeds fits with their motion/back door cut offense. [/quote]With all due respect, if we ran Princeton's offense the fans would be screaming about how boring it is and that CJJ is not letting the players show their stuff. Might be a bit hard to recr...

re: Would Blakeney work at PG? **Envisoned Lineup
Posted by Tom Bronco on 4/21 at 4:49 pm
[quote] Why play Blakeney at PG on this roster? TQ showed last year that LSU's offense was at it's most efficient with him being the primary ball-handler Gray (yes him) can still be a good PG for this team if he's willing to run the offense instead of create the offense. He's still LSU's qu...

re: To all the Johnny Jones haters..

To me the best proof of what CJJ means to this school's basketball program is this post. I am a die hard basketball fan. I followed the team during all of the Trent Johnson years and lived and mostly died with the team. There were maybe 10 of us doing that. Any basketball post but especially one...

[quote]I'd take Kasongo over Malik at this point.[/quote]I agree. I've been that way from the start. We need a good rebounding, defensive big man a lot more than we do another guard that wants to score a lot. ...

Well first of all, in their mind's eye they are going to make it. These are elite athlete's who have been told their whole lives how great they are. Just because some stupid old fools tell them that they aren't that good doesn't mean they will listen. Just give them a chance and they will prove ever...

re: Brandon Sampson down to 3 schools and he will announce tomorrow!
Posted by Tom Bronco on 4/19 at 2:45 pm
I agree with all the posters above. Newman is not a point guard but a shooter and we have lots of those already. I think it is good to get a player who will not be one and done. Just think about 2016 if we got Newman and he was one and done with Blakeney and Simmons. We would lose those two guards, ...

Yeah, I've been a fan since the 60's and it has been around that long. I like it myself. Kind of differentiates us from Auburn. Auburn is also called the War Eagles and The Plainsman. Wish they would choose one of those and quit being Tigers but it won't happen. ...

re: NBA Draft - Mickey's draft spot with latest declarations to enter draft
Posted by Tom Bronco on 4/16 at 1:54 pm
I think the majority of you are missing the boat. Without a great deal of "individual hard work" Mickey wasn't going to be a three. If LSU let him play there or not really had nothing to do with it. He just didn't have 3 pro skills. He needed a much better jump shot with more range. His ball han...

re: Ben Simmons withdraws from Jordan Brand Classic
Posted by Tom Bronco on 4/13 at 5:18 pm
Point taken if he was recruited hard by Kentucky. One could be considered a fluke. Two is just what I said a switch of power. Let's face it, Blakeney is coming because he was close to Simmons and wanted to play with him. Malik might have some of the same thoughts but was not that close. ...
