man, TV was terrible back in the day



To us it wasn't, because we didn't have anything better to compare it to.

It was more exciting because so few games were televised. LSU on television was a huge deal and some of the OOC conference games we played in the 80's were amazing.

What I found funny listening to the broadcast team, was how early they starting talking as if the game was OVER! Because of the lack of a 3 point line, a twenty point lead with 15 mins left was considered to be virtually insurmountable. It seems these days 20 point second half comebacks happen several times a week!

WOW has college basketball gone to shite or what???


Man this is when College Bball was at it's best


My thoughts exactly!!! Generally the level of competition continues to rise as a sport continues to grow (i.e. today's NFL teams would hammer those from the 70's and 80's), but college basketball has continuously regressed. Alot of those great teams from the 80's would blowout some of today's "great" teams. Just imagine the shock on the faces of today's players when they faced a team who could routinely make mid-range shots and open jumpers. Today's teams wouldn't know how to react to games where the score was in the mid-80's and 90's, as opposed to those classic 60-57 or 49-38 (with each team shooting 35% and 5-24 from 3pt range) barnburners we get to see today.

What's the reason? Do players choose baseball football over Basketball or do players work only on dunking or whatever???


That 1981 LSU team would blow the last 10 NCAA champions off the floor. Cookieman hitting JUMPERS from 15 feet...

I miss good college basketball, not just at LSU but EVERYWHERE


what has happened to this sport??

We were the best team in the Country that year, just got a little wide eyed at the Final Four in Philly.


I agree with most of your statement. We were the best team in the country but our leader, Rudy Toot Macklin was hurt for that game. When you only shoot 35 to 40 percent you always look wide eyed. By far the best LSU basketball team ever.

Yes, that LSU team would kill everyone in current college basketball. And so would a number of the others from that era...

what happened-
1) NBA strip-mining college ball for so long
2) Sportscenter highlights reel; everyone wants a dunk, instead of learning to make an open 12 ft shot
3) 3 pt line; people step back to 20 ft instead of up to 15 for an open jumper.

2 and 3 led to the total destruction of fundamentals in the game, and 1 makes recruiting a nightmare; the better the talent, the less likely he'll stay. The shorter the time the talent remains, the less fundamentally sound the talent becomes. Each year it got worse, until it reached the current disaster.
