| Tiger Rant|| Justin Hamilton Playing hoops in NBA D League - Tom Bronco on 12/15/13 at 5:40 pm|
Thinking about the current LSU basketball team got me to thinking about past ones also. I really liked Justin Hamilton when he played his one season here a couple of years ago. I was looking forward to what would have been his senior year when he opted to turn pro. He was drafted in the second round...
| Tiger Rant|| This Basketball Team Is For Real - Tom Bronco on 11/15/13 at 1:43 am|
I just watched the UMass game again on Geaux Zone. When you take in all of the negatives that we had go against us in that game and we still only lost by two, it has to give you a lot of confidence in this team.
1. We didn't shoot well from two, three or free throws.
2. We lost one ...
| Tiger Rant|| BB Needs Inside Scoring - Tom Bronco on 12/23/12 at 7:54 am|
I love this team. They are playing so hard every game. But it is tough to watch them fight so hard for every basket and have to shoot so many three's.
We have to start getting more inside scoring from our big men. JOB still seems determined to prove to the NBA scouts that he can hit an outside s...

They have sold 11,000 tickets in Boise tonight. This will be a large hostile crowd and a real road test . Hope we can keep it together and play well. ...

From Johnny Jones pre-game remarks:
On seeing Andrew Del Piero in the starting five for the future...
"When I started Andrew the other day (against Seton Hall), I think I made it pretty clear that it wasn't a circus act or anything else. I think it's primarily because of the work he's put in dur...

A lot of posts are being posted twice but I am only hitting the submit button once. Any ideas why? Also is there a way to delete a post once it is there?...
| Tiger Rant|| Basketball Freshmen - Tom Bronco on 11/29/12 at 12:10 pm|
While everyone is rightly excited about the incoming freshmen we will have next year, I think we have some truly outstanding recruits from Coach Jones first class.
Shane Hammink, Malik Morgan and Corban Collins are all good players. Hammink and Morgan have the potential to be great. Morgan and H...

hate LSU fans!!! So why would I like their coach?! #WPS #butreally @RazorbackProbs
The Les Miles Ark offer story is picking up steam. I'm taking up a collection to get him a raise at LSU. #wps #gohogs fb.me/OKPfU57w

| Tiger Rant|| Geaux Zone Pathetic - Tom Bronco on 11/9/12 at 9:41 pm|
I know I defended it earlier because I could at least follow the games with them but boy do they suck. For a while after ever made basket they were showing a replay while the game was still in progress. All so they could mention McDonalds and make a few more bucks. We missed whole sequences of play ...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU 69 UAM 58 3:55 left BBG - Tom Bronco on 11/5/12 at 7:48 pm|
Johnny O'Bryant looking good. Collins, Carmouchie and Morgan showing some solid guard play. Ragged but not as much as I expected. Hickey and Hammink suspended, not sure why. Eddie, JOB and Coleman are rotating as our three big men. Coleman had a very nice fake, drive to the bucket and dunk.
| Tiger Rant|| They Hate Us Threads - Tom Bronco on 11/3/12 at 10:44 am|
Since this usually means someone didn't pick us to win or said something unkind about the team or a player, don't even bother. I have never seen a game where not only did no one pick us but where no one said that we even had much of a chance. Some of them even believe what Spurrier said about Bama b...

| Tiger Rant|| Secret Play Book - Tom Bronco on 10/2/12 at 10:12 am|
The oft mentioned place of Miles offensive expertise. What is a secret play? My guess is that it is a play different from the three running plays and two pass plays that we run 98% of the time.
Certainly it maybe one of those plays that work wonderfully, such as Shepard's run last game. If we n...
| Tiger Rant|| Maybe we can agree? - Tom Bronco on 9/30/12 at 2:51 pm|
It makes no sense to play cupcake teams like we have done. If you beat them big everyone just goes ho hum that's what we expected. If you don't beat them big or lord help us lose then it is negative. Les can't get the team excited about them, the fans aren't excited and they are boring and frustrati...
| Tiger Rant|| Mett Yelling at Offensive Line - Tom Bronco on 9/2/12 at 10:08 pm|
Did anyone notice when Mettenberger got up out of the QB cage and got in the offensive lines face. They did something he didn't like as he looked pretty angry and was screaming. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Observations on BB Hire - Tom Bronco on 4/15/12 at 8:44 am|
It is kind of funny that so many people condemn Johnny Jones for his part in breaking NCAA basketball rules and said that means he should never be coach but then supported other coaches that have broken rules in the past - Pearl, Tubby Smith, Scott Drew, etc. Others say that we should have gotten a ...
| Tiger Rant|| If Jones is coach who will be on team next year? - Tom Bronco on 4/12/12 at 1:08 pm|
Don't expect anyone on this board to know the answer to that but I think it is critical that we get a coach quickly so we can find out. At this point Jones is fine with me because we obviously aren't going to get a big name or even a good head coach from a smaller school. I think that JJ involvement...

I know this will cause a lot of ranting from the ranters so gentlemen warm up your keyboards and please at least use a dictionary and spell those bad words correctly.
My topic is luck. It is in direct opposition to this idea that if enough money is put on the table we will get a great new basket...
