Trying to get LSU fan insight on Trent Johnson
I have been to every TCU home game this year and have been able to watch TCU under Trent Johnson so far.
We are 8-5 but haven't beaten anyone good, a soft non conference schedule. Just blew our best chance at a Big 12 win on Saturday, and according to this site we will go 0-18 in conference play: LINK
We are worse than last year, but that's because we lost an NBA point guard and our 2 other best players from last year's roster, and lost our best returning player to an ACL tear in the 2nd game of the year. So we basically have had only 7 scholarship players all year. Almost no offensive talent on the roster, a bunch of role players but no one who can create their own shot or command respect from opposing defenses in either the post or wing.
Also Johnson's pace is molasses slow, believe we are in the Top 10 slowest teams in the country. I have no problem with this, because you have to play the pace according to your talent, which we have none. The style may not be exciting to watch, but we stand no chance in a track meet. He also seems to be a hard nosed coach, always screaming at our guys to hustle off the floor when they are subbed in, for example.
Apparently he is bringing in some highly regarded recruits next year though, and Devonta Abron a transfer from Arkansas, our best player at the moment, is a sophomore.
My question I guess is what Trent brings to the table. Is he simply a recruiter, is he a good Xs and Os guy, what can we expect after this expected disaster of a season for the future? Will he just bring our program up to a decent level, or will he even be able to do that?
