Give JJ a chance. Very few coaches have instant success. Even good players sometimes take a while to gel.
The Brooklyn Nets were supposed to be really good, but the first half of the year was horrible for them, and those are professionals and multiple players there have won championships.

Wasn't Jeremy Hill a red shirt soph?

| Tiger Rant|| Is LSU football becoming turning into Kentucky basketball? - Purple and Geaux on 1/6/14 at 6:45 am|
With all of the early departures into the NFL Draft, it seems to me that LSU football is turning into Kentucky basketball in that players come and enter the draft early.
Coach Calipari has always said that it is an advantage in recruiting for his program when players get picked up in the draft....

No matter who is the coach at Texas, the Horns would never play LSU. They have traditionally had very weak non-conference schedules to boost their records. The only time UT will ever play LSU is in a Cotton Bowl, Champions Bowl or a National Championship or playoff game.
Texas had a home and h...

1998 for sure the biggest shock to me.

Not trying to be a homer, but how could LSU end up as a 4 seed when the Tigers were #2 in almost every poll for the greater part of May and winning the SEC Tournament over the #1 team for most of May?
It seems that every other year or so the NCAA selection committee underrates LSU.

It happened in 1997 I think with LSU - Bama. They played 3 regular season games, 1 SEC Championship Game and in the National Championship Game.
If it ends up LSU-Vandy in the National Championship game, even though they are both in the SEC, it is possible that it would be the first time they h...

All right. Most of the year, if a team gets swept or loses a series 2-1 that weekend, they usually pay for it in the polls.
So if Florida State goes 0-3 in the ACC tournament, they still get the #1 overall national seed? Not legit. ...
