What makes Asik a $15mil per year player. 5ppg 8rpg
I know he's a defensive presence. But $15mil per year is too high for his numbers.
What am I missing here?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: A few questions about Welter. - mrbayoublu on 7/6/14 at 8:51 pm|
Speed Welter does not have. Speed covers up mistakes big time. For example, recovery from a missed assignment or misread can be corrected with speed.
Even if Welter reads the play correctly, if he can't get to a spot on time, then it is a fail.
That's what I've heard about Welter. Good brai...

Well, he played his Freshman year at Texas Tech. That's what his bio says. So, at the very least, he should be a soph with three years of eligibility.
How does that sound?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: 2014-2015 Men's Basketball Roster - mrbayoublu on 7/1/14 at 8:47 pm|
Could be this starting lineup:
Josh Gray PG Tim Quarterman PG
Tim Quarterman SG Keith Hornsby SG
Jarell Martin F Aaron Epps F
Jordan Mickey F John Odo F
Darcey Malone C Elbert Robertson C
Probably run a three guard set with Martin and Mickey.
Hope Hornsby can hit the...

No beach, not even a river, just a dirty, stinky bayou.
Restaurants are great, but they are not different than any other midsized city across the south. Same with shopping.
Ever drive on the Evangeline Thruway or try cross town traffic? No beltway or loop around the city is really special.

This was a great pick. And if we don't trade up for him, Philly gonna take him, no doubt.

Really, when I watch NCAA post season play, it's obvious LSU basketball is missing some key pieces to make it to the dance. And that ain't JJ's fault. He's bringing in the talent, but it ain't all here yet.
The M & M duo will definitely be on fire next year. Bench players will be much improved....

Why can't LSU have any consistency as a shooting team? Is it coaching? I mean, crap, what what is it, a 24 - 4 run by Bama, and they ain't so hot themselves.
I would love to watch a team to actually run sets and the players actually shoot a decent percentage without going ten minutes without ma...
