| Tiger Rant|| re: What happened to our press? - ellessuuuu on 3/6/14 at 6:33 pm|
It worked too well. We would rather play a 2-3 or 3-2 zone and give up wide open looks from behind the arc. ...

[quote]C) Although I agree it's a long shot, we could EASILY win tonight and Saturday giving us a 6-seed in the tourney. If we get the 6-seed we could easily beat the 11/14 and 3 (UGA) to set up a meeting with UK in the semis...and we've all seen how we play against UK. This team is not completely d...

Don't attack the messenger. Lunardi's latest Bracketology has LSU in the 'next four out.' In my mind, I thought we were a lot further away than the first eight out. Need to pick up a road win BAD!

Ronnie Henderson is with a plumbing company in Gulfport/Biloxi. Played a couple of pick up games with him in the last year. Good guy, can still shoot the round off the ball. I believe he spent a few years in New Zealand or Australia playing pro ball....

Did anybody call and ask why he inexplicably went back to a 2-3 zone (which allowed numerous wide open looks in the first half) with about 6 to go in a three point game. Of course, that promptly allowed two open threes to take the deficit from 3 to 9. ...

Are you serious? How many wide open 3's and offensive rebounds did we give up. Defense and rebounding is 90% effort and we had very little of that today. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why did he go back to zone? - ellessuuuu on 2/15/14 at 6:10 pm|
In game coaching is bad and we just don't seem to have any defensive fundamentals. Hickey was a better defender his first two years than he is this year. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Why did he go back to zone? - ellessuuuu on 2/15/14 at 5:55 pm|
We were playing pretty good man defense in the second half and Jones goes zone and we give up two open threes. If we lose this one, it falls on that coaching decisions....
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU Basketball FAIL - ellessuuuu on 2/13/14 at 8:22 am|
Several of those 3's came against players other than hickey and stringer. I know on one Martin got completely lost and then failed to get through a screen. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU Basketball FAIL - ellessuuuu on 2/13/14 at 8:20 am|
A team that averages 5 threes a game went off on us last night. Most of their attempts were uncontested. Shocking revelation: SEC caliber players will make uncontested 3's. No excuse for that many uncontested 3's. We don't seem to understand defensive rotation and we aren't very good at getting thr...

Of course, all of this is subject to what other Bubble teams do down the stretch and how many "at large" spots are stolen by teams during the conference tournaments. For example, anybody winning the Missouri Valley Conference, but Wichita St. will make that two-bid league and basically eliminate on...

You are giving the rest of the Bubble WAY too much credit. We split with Auburn and UGA this week and probably stayed about the same. This is a weak Bubble.

Go 6-2 in the final 8 games (with losses to UF and UK on the road). Anything short of this will likely require winning 1-2 games in the SEC Tournament....

Plus the Baltimore win last night makes Flynn's performance even more important because now Green Bay owns their own destiny.
I fully expect Rodgers to be back this week, but Flynn has certainly proven that he can play. On top of all that, Green Bay is probably only paying about 1/8 of his sal...

Saw a lot of good things from him in the second half today. Ran a few sets for him going to the basket and he looked very comfortable getting the ball going to the basket.
