Expectations don't always equal results.
Alot of the expectations were too lofty, mainly due to the incoming freshman.
Of the incoming freshman only Mickey has met or exceeded those expectations.
Martin is going to be good, he just wasn't close to as good as many thought.
This team is simply m...

All yr long LSU has been a pretender. But, they show enough flashes of what their capable of that they give you hope.
Well this is one last chance to prove this team is worthy of the dance.
I think they show up big. Will that be enough to win, i dont know. But I think its a battle to the end....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Never been this unhappy after a win - ROUSTER on 2/27/14 at 3:35 pm|
I love how people keep saying this team has no chance at the dance.
1 game can change all that and that game is Sat.
This team goes into Fla and beats the #1 team, they are squarely on the bubble.
Win out (which is definitely possible if we beat Fla) and this team is probably in the tournament ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Never been this unhappy after a win - ROUSTER on 2/27/14 at 11:31 am|
Fla is a really tough matchup for us (well everyone really).
If we get lazy and give Fla open looks, they will BURY us and it will be a Tn type whoopin.
JOB has to play like JOB SEC 1st team and not stupid fouls ride the pine JOB.
Hickey has to play within himself and not turn it over. He also ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Never been this unhappy after a win - ROUSTER on 2/27/14 at 10:28 am|
MS, I'm the opposite.
This team has it's faults and yes it kills me that they don't always play with passion (well some of them).
But, I wanted to see how we would bounce back from our game against Ky.
I'm not ready to say the "light" went on, but coming out and taking care of a&m the way we did ...

Really interesting game tonight. I want to see whether that brutal loss to Ky was the start of something or simply a last salvo for a team struggling to end the season.
I really thought this season was nose diving, but they showed me something against Ky. Now can they do it at home?
I want to se...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anthony Hickey appreciation thread - ROUSTER on 2/22/14 at 7:28 pm|
Draw a foul from this crew. Job got completely abused by cauley, no call. Refs clearly plyed favorites late.
Yes hickey lost track of time, but he was worn out.
Great effort by this team, short of martin at times....

Nobody, CJJ included should get murdered.
Unfortunately there are way too many stupid rant posters so dont sweat it.
Every player could have done something different.
Game was there to be won.
My biggest problem was the home cooking by the refs, but i already expect that.

Anyone who thinks hickey lost this game should quit watching basketball.
Played his arse off.
Same with stringer and job.
Great game that hurts.
Question is did this team learn something about playing hard or did this kill them?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Running with the ball. - ROUSTER on 2/22/14 at 6:43 pm|
I cant complain about the end. Ky made the play.
The biggest problem was the reffing late. They give ky 2 gift chances on bull shite calls and allow Job to get mugged with nothing. That just sucked....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anthony Hickey appreciation thread - ROUSTER on 2/22/14 at 6:36 pm|
Hickey put us in a position to win. Actually he willed us to what should have been a win.
Kids left it on the floor. We pretty much played with 7 guys. Martin needs to be feed gunpowder, he just isnt aggressive enough.
JOB needs to play like this all the time. Mickey battled his arse off.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Hoops- LSU 76 @ 77 #18 Kentucky Final OT - ROUSTER on 2/22/14 at 5:54 pm|
Team was awesome. Sure we cod have done better at some things. But we had the win and those sorry arse refs stole it. The call on coleman was criminal. The non call on obryant was just as criminal.
Those sorry arse refs were not going to let LSU win in Rupp and thats a shame....
| Tiger Rant|| re: The team played really hard today, props to them - ROUSTER on 2/22/14 at 5:41 pm|
Yea that was a head scratcher, but hickey played a mans game.
I thought this team did everything they could to win except pay off the refs. Complete home cookin and that pisses me off.
Coleman plays great d and the ref bails him out.
Obryant get mauled no call. Fukn sucks.
Major props to this te...

Couldnt agree more. This team got raped by the ref in rupp. Sad after playing so well to get it stolen, but that is the sec....

Anyone not blaming these pathic fn tefs is wrong. 3 huge fn calls. 2 against us, 1 no call. Terrible.
Great effort by this team, sure we could have done things better.
At the end tjese fukn refs handed to to cats....

Totally agree with this.
This team could really use a "leader".

| Tiger Rant|| re: Biggest Issue for this team away from Home - ROUSTER on 2/13/14 at 7:52 am|
I agree on the effort.
When you have JOB,Mickey,and Martin in the lineup and you're getting beat on the boards that's pathetic.
I think Mickey plays with effort, he just gets out of position alot.
Martin is "soft". He needs to get stronger and tougher.
JOB is stock market player. He plays hard...
| Tiger Rant|| re: high hopes, disappointing results, and players that lack fundamentals - ROUSTER on 2/13/14 at 7:45 am|
This is simply a flawed team that doesn't play with consistent effort.
It starts with JOB. When he plays like he's capable this is a tourney team. But, he has a problem with "stupid" fouls that take him out of the game. He also is the main culprit of playing with uneven effort.
Hickey really ...

Fact is this team is lacking in a bunch of areas.
This team is an abortion on the road.
We may be lucky to be an NIT team.
No defense, spotty offense, shite coaching.
All that said, Hornsby and gray will bring something this team desperately needs....

This team doesn't have guys that can take over a game late, yet.
AD has the skill set, but simply struggled last night. In the 4th Q, he couldn't buy a bucket. But, had some really good looks they just wouldn't go down.
Gordon made a few shots in the 4th to give us a chance, but like has been said...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Spurs 99 @ Pelicans 91 -#FireMonty - ROUSTER on 2/3/14 at 9:30 pm|
This team has Davis ( who couldnt make shite in the 4th) and Gordon. Who else can score? Roberts, ha. Stems, ha, AFA, ha.
We are just missing the players. Not to mention we played 0 defense in the 4th.
I dont like monty, but this lineup aint beating a good team unless Davis and Gordon go buckwild...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How about those Freshmen tonight? - ROUSTER on 1/21/14 at 8:13 pm|
Now we see why cjj played TQ early in the season.
Mickey was a man.
Martin was good, but needs to get tougher which he will.
This team is still got alot of room to grow, but are getting there.

And the thing is hes just scratching the surface.
CJJ must have hit a nerve with a few players.
TQ played much more aggressive last night. Man one time he tried to posterize the vandy player. U could see in his face he had bad intentions.
The guys were really fighting down low on D last night.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Game thread Vandy: 58 @ LSU 81 Game over - ROUSTER on 1/18/14 at 11:43 pm|
When JOB plays like that, this team will be tough to beat.
Martin looks like hes figuring it out. I agree by the second half of Sec play watch out.
Mickey was also good tonight.
Keep playin with that intensity, we could have something....

Major props to JOB, dude came out in beastmode from the start. Was fighting all night down low.
Also, TQ played a nice game and rebounded.
Martin n Mickey both played well.
Good solid much needed win.
