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