| Tiger Rant|| JOB3 looking slim and trim in the paper this morning - Tiger Ugly on 10/13/13 at 10:56 am|
Finally coming in to camp in shape. Fired up to see how good a well-conditioned Johnny can be.
My only worry is that he doesn't try too hard to show he's a jump shooter. I think we'll have enough of those and I just don't think his stroke is consistent enough to waste his time out on the perimi...

I think with what we had returning and if he and Martin/Quaterman were even close to as good as expected....my expectation was we'd be a tournament team this coming year. And I think that a reasonable expectaion.
Mickey for me was a big part of that. I ...

And it was going to be ugly and no one was going to be spared. And it would have been legit.

So I'll just let it pass....
| Tiger Rant|| How does LSU's hoops talent rate in the SEC - Tiger Ugly on 1/19/13 at 9:30 am|
I haven't seen all the SEC teams play, but we're all of a concensus that the conference is about as down. I'd say it's as it's been since maybe the 70's when Dale first took over.
Against that backdrop, all other factors aside...talent alone, how would you rank LSU's talent in the SEC.

They looked pretty inept early. Kentucky has the pedigree no doubt, but this year's version of freshmen phenoms looks talented but lacking in cohesion.
Lot's of one-on-one and very little teamwork offensively....

Not to steal SOS's thunder as I'm sure he'll have a very comprehensive preview in the next day or two.
But looking at Auburn, in their last two games they lost 81-79 to 11th ranked Illinois in Champagne...a game they could have won, then beat Florida St. at home.
Yes, their record is 6-7 but t...

| Tiger Rant|| Johnny going zone today - Tiger Ugly on 12/22/12 at 4:01 pm|
I was a bit surprised. At a Tip-off Club function before the season he told us he's not a zone guy so you could expect very little of it while he's coach.
But he played it pretty much the whole game today.
He said post game he zoned because Marquette was not a particularly good shooting team ...

I'm am admittedly one of those blowhards who think all HOF's but specifically the baseball HOF have become too inclusive and prone to sentimentality over productivity.
In Santo's case, it flies in the face of my loyalty as I'm a lifelong Cub fan and Santo was my first favorite player as a kid.

I was out of contact when this came down. What's the down low. I still don't see him in any of the mock drafts I've checked even listed as a second round pick.
Seems he'd be much better served to try to develop his skills one more year and improve his draft stock.

A great opportunity for the Tigers to strengthen their RPI heading into conference play.
The SEC's RPI is slightly better this year than last year, but still not great, so not sure what kind of record LSU will need to ...

Didn't get to see either on t.v., but I'm curious for any who did, was it a case of our defense improving and playing better or simply the other teams being a bit offensively challenged.
Because we won both despite pretty bad shooting in each game, and lots of turnovers as well....
