| Tiger Rant|| Elbert Robinson III: Did the weight loss have to be so drastic? - timlan2057 on 4/9/15 at 8:52 am|
ER played at about 310 in high school. I can understand getting him into condition to play the college game, but 250 lbs. at over 7 ft tall is pretty thin. Sure, you want him to be more maneuverable, but he's never going to be a David Robinson. ER is what he is, a classic post-up center that you ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (11)

For me, I'll use Dale Brown's example. In his 25 years, he got LSU to the postseason 60 percent of the time. Yes, two of the fourteen years were NIT bids, but I will count them, since it was harder to make the NCAA's in the early 80's. I'm not going to be biased and remove the first years when...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (7)

Mike is such an LSU traditon that no doubt will continue as long as there is an LSU. Mike's habitat has arches out to Mike XX, which LSU may not see for another century. What happens when a mascot dies? Are the remains incinerated and then unceremoniously dumped? I think Mike VI and all futur...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (18)

Just wondering. This board was filled with Rockets haters and Harden haters the last couple years--experts who declared James Harden would be a bust when thrust into the role as "the man" on the Rockets. Have they been back to apologize and eat crow yet?...
