| LSU Recruiting Board|| Basketball: Is LSU recruiting Trey Touchet from St. Thomas More for next year? - macaoidh on 3/25/13 at 7:00 pm|
He doesn't appear to be on too many national lists, and if Jones gets the Dante Exum kid he might be done recruiting guards, but Touchet has the look of a kid you want on your team.

...is with the Madison Mallards of the Northwoods League.
He's made 5 appearances so far and thrown 3.1 innings. He's got an ERA of 8.10.
That ERA largely came from his first appearance, when he got lit up for four hits and three runs in one inning. Since then he hasn't given up a hit or an ea...

...same people who got Johnny the job are apoplectic that Randy isn't coming, and there's pressure being applied.
Seven new BOS members coming in June. Can't have that change fast enough.
(I like the idea of Randy being on the staff. I like him better than the UNT assistants for sure. But the ...

...SOMETHING today or tomorrow.
Signed a kid, hired a coach.
If he doesn't have any news to announce in his first week on the job, from a PR standpoint it won't look good.
That's not intended as a criticism of his job performance. It's just an observation. Folks are expecting him to be a lo...

...who is the AD at North Texas. Villareal is an LSU guy who used to coach under Hallman, if I remember right.
Jones needs to sit down with Villareal and tell him "I need you to hook me up by letting my 6-10 JUCO kid out of his deal. And if you'll do that I'll make it up to you by feeding your ne...

...and the story I'm hearing is that he's meeting Jamie Dixon there.
I'm also hearing they're going to go for a deal with Dixon tonight. As of right now, he IS the list. If they can't land him, somebody like Pastner could well be the next guy.
All this Johnny Jones/Tommy Amaker/Reggie Theus st...

...which tells me that if LSU makes the right hire they can put him into this class after all.
Does anybody know who these two McDonald's All-Americans are that Josh Pastner can supposedly bring with him if he gets the job?
Here are the McDonald's All-Americans who haven...

If not, what about this guy?
| Tiger Rant|| Here's why I don't think this Johnny Jones stuff has legs... - macaoidh on 4/7/12 at 10:35 pm|
...it's apparent to me, though I could certainly be all wet, that the Johnny Jones stuff is a PR blitz by the Dale Brown/Collis Temple gang intended to present the fans with something of a fait accompli that generates some sort of grounsdwell of acceptance. I don't think they counted on such a cold ...
| Tiger Rant|| Trent Johnson would do himself a lot of good... - macaoidh on 3/16/12 at 2:00 pm|

Davis just got canned at UAB today.
He's a better recruiter than anybody on LSU's staff right now....

...that's pretty impressive.
Need guys like Foster, Slaid and Sciambra to get hot and Rumbelow to do a better job finishing hitters with two strikes (and Glenn to stop finding bats so much). Otherwise this team looks pretty good. Definitely better than the last two teams....
| Tiger Rant|| I'm not going to freak out about this weekend in baseball... - macaoidh on 2/26/12 at 4:56 pm|
...because sometimes you just play like crap.
All I'll say is that if this team can't win more than half their games in the SEC and host a regional, Mainieri will have had lots of time to demonstrate he can sustain LSU baseball at a level befitting its tradition and resources and yet failed to do...
| Tiger Rant|| What do you guys think of Alleva? - macaoidh on 2/6/12 at 11:51 pm|
Is he an asset at this point? Think he's doing a good job?

If so, sorry about the Teutonic quality of this post.

The Birmingham paper says he's down to LSU, Ole Miss and Okie State. Can't see him going to either one of those if he has a bona fide LSU offer.

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Is there a worse recruiter in major college basketball than Trent Johnson? - macaoidh on 10/18/11 at 2:57 pm|
It's three weeks from the start of the fall signing period, he has five scholarships to give in a class pretty much everybody would agree is make-or-break for him (assuming he doesn't lose another 20 games this year) and all he's got is one commitment?
Who else is he getting? The Qu...

| Tiger Rant|| What about hiring Jay Artigues from SLU to coach pitchers? - macaoidh on 5/30/11 at 3:04 pm|
Everything I've heard about Artigues makes it sound like he's a good recruiter and a very solid pitching coach. And I would think LSU could pay him more than he'll make where he is (plus, he's got a better chance of moving up as Mainieri's lead assistant than stay at SLU where 35-22 is about as good...
