Well, our team will definitely know how to handle the pressure that comes with playing in the NCAA tournament. That alone will be good for one win, maybe two, depending on the draw....

[quote]We have no depth. [/quote]
This is true. Not anyone's fault. Just is. Coach JJ has worked recruiting miracles to get some players on the court.
With more players like Quarterman and Patterson coming in and staying 4 years, then our depth will slowly build.
The goal is to have a suppl...

Well,there you go, trying to make sense in your fantasy world.
SC doesn't have LSU's talent.
LSU has the talent because of Coach JJ.
You don't have a coach like JJ.
You lose. We win. Goodbye. :lol:...

But, after late game collapse against A&M, it was very nice to see the team run offensive sets the whole game and play defense the whole game.

| Tiger Rant|| re: jalyn patterson beast - mrbayoublu on 1/20/15 at 8:41 pm|
Patterson is a smooth operator who plays within the offense. He knows his role, and plays within that role, and that is a big plus for this team now.
When he is set, it's lights out on the three.
The press don't bother him either.
Oh, and he will be here for a few years....

Well, you could say that about most coaches in the country.
But against Florida, LSU ran offensive sets consistently the "whole" game. Talented players must WANT to run those sets.
Who knows, maybe Coach Jones let them melt...

Josh is still playing out of control at times. Before his injury, he was getting better at letting the game come to him. He is no where near that right now.
But with someone like Quarterman and Patterson as examples, Josh has a chance to learn how to relax and play hard.
If Josh ever learns ho...

I liked what the game announcers said about Mickey's statements about how hard and long Hornsby is practicing. Coming in early, staying late, sometimes two hours late, to work on his game.
Thus rubs off on the whole team. Regardless of their talents, Coach Jones has some great kids with solid cha...

With this solid victory, LSU is playing like a "classic" young team. Some games they blow, and then some games they put it all together like tonight.
What's great is that we still got a long way to go before tournament time.
They just need to play within themselves,not get rattled, and good th...

Most definitely. All those people who said he can't coach in game have no idea what Coach Jones is thinking or doing, especially as he tries to prepare this team for a tournament run.
Tonight they showed that they can run an offense and play solid defense. It also shows Jones has the brain power ...

Young teams lose the ones they should win and win the ones they should lose.
Now what is positive is that it is still early in the season. Also, LSU showed they can run an offense to perfection. But most important tonight was our defense.
When they do those things, which means they are under c...

When M & M look like that, no way they stay. Many NBA teams would like to have a guy who loves to rebound and block shots like Mickey, but also can step outside and hit the mid range jumper. They pay 7-9 mil a season for someone like that.
Martin is the quietest 20 point a game shooter I've seen ...

Yes, but Jalyn Patterson is also a calm, cool customer for a freshman. When we turned it over a couple of times and Florida made their last run, you could see Patterson telling Hornsby to calm down. Then Jones calls a timeout, and it's all over when we hit the floor....
