I just don't watch much college baseball outside of LSU period.
But I gotta say if I did, I'd prefer the small-ball to the old 5-hour 21-14 games of the 90's with juiced up kids hitting homers off bat handles....

I can remember us coming in second once years ago in men's tennis, but yeah, I've always had the perception that Stanford was a tennis power.
Don't know how big of an upset this was, but my first instinct would be to think pretty big.

Solid if not spectacular. Could run and throw...was not exeptional at either, but good at both so the combination served him well.
His legs won us the SEC title game in 2001. He wasn't quite their yet in the passing game so we basically ran read option every play. Not Chief's greatest moment....

Good to have some off-season talk of LSU hoops. I hope Bullet puts a schedule together that will actually get some early season fan interest and prepare the team for SEC play and beyond.

Losing to them at home in the first round of the NIT a few months later made it even worse.

Half the game is played on the defensive end, so to summarrily dismiss that is short-sighted.
I don't know that Durant is a great defender, but certainly better than Melo.
So even if you say they are eqauls offensively (which I don't, I still give Durant a slight advantage for overall offens...
