| Tiger Rant|| re: QB Play In 2014 - Better or Worse Than 2011? - ellessuuuu on 8/26/14 at 1:35 pm|
The QB play for the first 8 games was very good in 2011. Very efficient TD/Int ratio and overall good stats.
I think by the end of this year, we are going to regret not holding onto the QB's we lost last year....

I think our man defense has gotten better over the last few games. We have at least two or three possessions when we get lost and fail to pick people up, but otherwise, we have improved since the middle of the SEC season. ...

[quote]LSU is going to have to play very good defense. I think we will mix up zone and man defense.[/quote]
If we play zone for multiple possessions, it could be a very long night. We simply are not a good zone team....

We did a really good job of switching ball screens on the perimeter. Thought our overall defensive effort was much improved.

The question was about the direction of the program. What was wrong with my answer: recruiting is much better but the results in the court have not noticeably improved since TJ's last season.
Also noticed you cut your trip back down memory lane to just the two prior years under TJ. ...

How many coaches step into a situation with a good big and consistent PG. Do you really not see the value in that? Bruce Pearl I'm sure would love to trade what jones got with his group at auburn. He also inherited a shooting guard that is in the top 10 in assists and near the top of the all time...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Some LSU Basketball perspective for our program's direction - ellessuuuu on 3/19/14 at 3:58 pm|
My apologies, we were one game under .500 TJ's last season. So in two seasons with much better talent we are now one game better.
By the way, the cupboard was not completely bare when TJ left. He did leave a McDonalds AA post player, and a starting PG that is likely to finish his career at LSU v...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Some LSU Basketball perspective for our program's direction - ellessuuuu on 3/19/14 at 12:22 pm|
Recruiting is better, but results on the court are no different than Johnson's last season (.500 in conference one win the SECT and an NIT bid ). Johnson's lack of talent was his own fault. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: If LSU was to win it all in the NIT? - ellessuuuu on 3/19/14 at 12:18 pm|
I hope LSU wins any tournament we play in. It would certainly show the ability of the coaching staff to motivate and adjust (have not been good at those two things this year).
The downside is that O'Bryant and probably Mickey will need to shine on a national stage for us to win and it decreases...

D because the things that I like about last year's team disappeared. Last year, the team had several late game comebacks and you felt like they never stopped fighting. Did not get that impression this year. Plus the team seemed to regress as the year continued.
Jones did a good job using the pr...
| Tiger Rant|| re: "Johnny Jones will eventially get us there" - ellessuuuu on 3/16/14 at 8:34 pm|
Jones inherited a team that finished .500 in conference and made the NIT. Not to mention he inherited a McDonalds All American sophomore post player. He has certainly increased the talent level, yet two years later we are a .500 team in the conference and headed to the NIT. Basically after two year...

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. ...
