well going 0-3 pretty much kills any and all momentum we had building for getting more people out to the games.

SOS. Bad shots & turnovers in the clutch, JOB out of control, key players in foul trouble late, defense was decent at times.

I knew all those gimme games in the beginning would just make the fall hurt that much worse

Still can't even beat Auburn and the Cocks

damn, I thought his eligibility was done. He should just stick to pre/post game writeups


Did JOB go back to making his 1-2 dribbles when getting double teamed?

Who were the clowns that predicted this team to make the big dance?

Exactly. We've regressed the last 5 games. There are only so many winnable games on our SEC slate and we've shite the bed on 2 of them already.

Sloppy and undisciplined performance tonight and we still had a chance to win at the end and Hickey who was uncharacteristically ball hogging tonight finally passes it and it's to JOB3 for a 3. Man that was terrible.

We have another winnable game up next against Georgia.....who sucks. Let's see if we can actually show some progress and improvement and end this garbage stretch we've been putting out there.

We are talking about a guy who all but said he wasn't planning on staying at LSU for more than the 1 required year. We heard the term "raw" all last year. He shouldn't still be raw 20 months out of high school.

Alright guys so I posted on a North Texas forum about Johnny Jones and they all said this:
quote:

Ease up, JJ's teams will always throw down the frustrating conference loss, but they will also always play their best basketball at conference tournament time. Don't be surprised to see a mini run in your conference tournament and major runs after year 2.


I can dig that.

Can't really argue anything you just said. I thought the last 2 games before this we just looked like we didn't give a shite. Very sloppy and made piss poor decisions passing the ball. The only time we looked like we cared was while moving into the press.

Can't speak for this game but sounds like more of that.

Reading these threads from start to finish is a task that no one should have to go through. Goodness, we have some incredibly stupid posts in here.

Lot's of dribbling, not enough passing and player movement. It was more pronounced this game than any.

We had some 3's dropped that keyed some runs but even some of those were not what i'd call good shots.

I'll judge next year on it's own terms, but there's ball left to be played this year.

Kudos for the recruiting and the up-tempo, but no excuse for this crap right now.

Our team had no life on the court at all tonight. JOB3 has no basketball IQ fwiw

I agree he could go winless for all I care. They aren't his guys. I'm excited for next year...I know that's cliche but I really am.

Despite outrebounding them (offensive and defensive), we weren't able to get much going with some very uncharacteristic turnovers (4 from Hickey). We were down 8 or so with a few minutes before half and closed it to a 2 pt game. JOB3 was not as bad as everyone said. He made some good moves and got some buckets. Still not playing up to potential, but better than the past two games.

We got cold right at the end of the last few minutes of 2nd half and couldn't make open shots in OT. Also, that Venezuelan looked goofy, but could shoot the ball pretty well.


Edit: I also think we used a few new plays and formations this game to counter our troubles against zone. At least, I thought we were running some new sets.

That is comically bad, he's supposed to be our #2 ball handler.




I think this was a factor. I'm sure he'll turn out ok, but with a close game and a much needed win, even with Hickey's 4 fouls, he should have gone with a different player, especially after the first turn over.

He did sub Stringer in on the next timeout and we regained the lead.

Well..Dale Brown got his boy the job and we are 0-3 in the SEC. I guess daddy Dale has more brilliant ideas when Johnny can't get the program rolling in 5 years.


come on now, easy, CJJ has a fantastic class coming in next year. This is not his team. Settle down.
