re: Met Coach Johnny Jones and Ricky Blanton

Cool story.

Ricky Blanton is one of my all-time favorites. I'll never forget the last second, in-bound shot against Georgetown. One of the LSU greats of all time.

I have a basketball signed by the entire 1991 team and Coach Dale, but none of the assistant coaches... I may try to bring it over top TJ Ribs on Monday to get Coach Jones to sign it. Would be pretty cool.
I have an old LSU flag signed by the 87 team I think (with the Wilsons, that lost to Indiana in the Elite 8). Got it signed at the airport when they came back after that game. Great keepsake, and reminder of when basketball was big here.

Cool story and great opportunity. I too feel we are in for great things with Coach Jones. He truly loves the school and has done such a great job this year.

I can definitely relate. I was near in tears after that miss; and then I went outside and shot that turnaround jumper in the driveway for hours . Nothing random, no fancy dribbling, I kept running to the crack in the pavement I thought was the right spot, back to the goal, and went up turning to the left. Over and over until my shoulder damn near fell off.
I could make 50 in a row after awhile...
it's great what loving sports can do for a kid. Too bad I had no height, cuz I was ready to hit that shot for the Tigers whenever they needed.
