Sure, but it's basketball and a quick turnaround is easily possible through recruiting. TJ would fool us each and every year with that, he would get just 1 "big" player and we would be like "oh well we have...

...Aaron Dotson coming in" - circa 2009
...Matt Derenbecker coming in" - circa 2010
...Johnny O'Bryant III coming in" - circa last season


Then after a third consecutive disastrous season, we had to get rid of him because we realized the only "big time" players he was getting were turning out to be busts (thank God JJ came to save JOB III's career) and he could never fill the roster out nor even fill what roster spots he did with SEC quality players.

I'm happy he brought in Hickey, JOB III and Stringer...but look at who else he brought in.

Chris Bass
Aaron Dotson
Eddie Ludwig
Jalen Courtney
Matt Derenbecker
Ralston Turner
John Issac

I mean yikes...just yikes. 4 guys who transferred out and 3 guys who would have trouble making a Sun Belt team.

So in 4 years recruiting he brought in 3 quality players, 4 guys who left the program and 3 guys who should never see the court in the SEC.



Meanwhile, while we knew we would struggle this year thank to TJ's inability to recruit, we can safely sit back now and say, "oh well we have...

...Jarell Martin, Jordan Mickey, Tim Quarterman and John Odo ALL coming in" - circa today


Plus, we have a watchable brand of basketball now, even this year when we are very short handed.

Bump.

TCU has 11 points at the half against Oklahoma. I'd think their fans would kill to get to 50 at this point.

No question that TJ's offense was garbage in his time here, but you might want to wait a bit before laughing at all of TCU's 50 pt games. It's not like LSU has looked like the 1990's UNLV or Loyola Marymount teams in SEC play this year:

52 v Fla
58 v UGA
58 v Texas A&M
57 v Vandy
57 v Alabama

Sir...excuse me...sir...you made a valid point and backed it up with hard facts. That type of behavior will not be tolerated around here. I am afraid we are going to have to ask you to leave...

TJ's last 3 years here...

65ppg - 2011/2012
62ppg - 2010/2011
61ppg - 2009/2010

In his first year we had a very good offense, but also had a loaded team and let Marcus Thornton do whatever he wanted. We are averaging 70 points a game this year which is a decent upgrade from any of the last 3 years.

His coaching philosophy is tough defense and rebounding, so you're going to see alot of 50-60 pt games.


That is why it didn't work. We are are undersized for that scheme. It would have taken him years to recruit what he needed. He would have been better off following the Tarkanian plan. UNLV had a lot of undersized teams and he just chose to outscore them.
