| Pelicans Talk|| re: Greg Monroe - Jon1798 on 12/10/13 at 12:16 pm|
Monroe will be a restricted free agent and will sure to look for a maximum extension. That's why he's mentioned as possibly being traded so much. His contract is about to outweigh his play....
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Greg Monroe - Jon1798 on 12/10/13 at 9:40 am|
Greg Monroe is a "good" player, but he plays zero defense and is about to get a max contract. If we could move Gordon's contract alone for him, maybe simply because it would be small for big. But otherwise I see no way it makes sense....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: How do we finish with the Number 1 class??? - Jon1798 on 12/2/13 at 1:20 pm|
If you go just based on rivals, I think LSU signs 4 5-stars in Fournette, Adoree, Dupre, and Tony Brown. D'Haquille would make 5 if he switched. Obviously Adoree would be the one to worry about the most.
I see Bama signing 4 in C-Rob, Hand, Humphrey and Scarbrough. I expect Bo to hold.

Jeremy Hill is our best back. He had a 16 yard run and a 9 yard run in the first series of the second half, and then didn't get another carry for the rest of the game. A pretty big game that was only a two score difference. Something happened.
I thought it was injury, but he came in on a passi...

He also cut back right into an unblocked DT earlier in the game. I'm honestly not sure what's going through his head half the time. The play tells you where to go. He should probably see how that works out for him once in a while....

Point guards can be like QB's in the NFL. If you want to stop being one of the worst teams in the NBA, stop playing with one of the worst pg's in the NBA.
