re: 1992 LSU Tigers - Basketball - One of the Most Talented/Experienced Ever? - Manswers
At this point, I say it's worth a try. I don't think we'd see as many guys going overseas as you might think. There will be some loss. However, there's still an allure to the college game. I also think it would bring some much needed stability to the college game and a better product....

re: 1989-1990 LSU Basketball: What do you remember the problem being? - Manswers
While the 1990 team had a problem with defense, that was not a characteristic of most of the teams from the 1980s. The 1986 through 1988 teams (and possibly others) were pretty stout defenders and had guys like Ollie Brown, Bernard Woodside and Ricky Blanton. The offense on the other hand usually re...

re: 1992 LSU Tigers - Basketball - One of the Most Talented/Experienced Ever? - Manswers
That team was very one dimensional. Shaq is one of the best centers ever. The rest of the guys on the 1992 team were average. Brandon was solid but never lived up to his lofty expectations. The 1980 team with Macklin, Scales, Carter, Cook, Sims and Martin was a little deeper than the 1981 team but I...

re: 1989-1990 LSU Basketball: What do you remember the problem being? - Manswers
I remember the starters being Jackson (1), Devall (0), Sims (2 or 3), Shaq (0) and Roberts (0). They were inexperienced, lacked leadership and played poor perimeter D. GA Tech's bigs were outclassed and helpless against Shaq and Roberts at the beginning of the game. GA Tech's guards killed us....

re: LMU possible transfer Evan Payne? - Manswers
That's actually a good thing that he'll need to sit a year. At first I thought we were going after him b/c the coaches thought they weren't going to land Malik. Payne's recruitment seems unrelated now....

re: SDS Article: Five best LSU football teams of all time - Manswers
Same here. I immediately thought "where's the 1969 team?" Given the size and athleticism of the players I doubt the 1969 team could stay on the same field as any of the teams listed in the 2000s but one could argue the same for the 1958 team. Same also for comparing the Packers or Colts teams of the...

re: Elbert Robinson III: Did the weight loss have to be so drastic? - Manswers
As long as he has the right attitude and determination, Elbert is going to progress nicely. Honestly, if the guy can be serviceable next year, good his junior year and all-SEC his senior year that would bring some pretty nice stability to the program. Somehow LSU landed their only two elite centers ...

re: Ben Simmons measures at 6'10" at Nike Hoops Summit - Manswers
Unless Robinson really comes into his own and we go primarily with a big lineup with him at the 5 and Victor at the 4, I think the 4 is where Simmons will mainly play. ...

I have not thought of Simmons playing point, but if so, we could have: Simmons-6'9" PG Blakeney-6'4" SG TQ - 6'6" SF Victor - 6'8" PF Robinson - 7'1" C I really hope Robinson starts putting it together....

re: Miss State trending in CrystalBall for Malik Newman? - Manswers
While we are talking about 18 year old kids, I think it would be a really bad move if he went to MSU. If he did, I don't think it would be because someone is paying him money. He must know that as a lottery pick he doesn't need an under the table $200K now and I don't think he's the type of kid who ...

re: Did Brandon Sampson sign with St. John's already or just committed because... - Manswers
I'd go after him just for his contribution after next season. We could lose 6 or 7 guys off of next year's team. I'd like a solid wing scorer for the 2016/2017 season. Assuming the big 3 FR all are gone after one year, Mickey is gone, and we lose, Hornsby and Gray, we could field a team of Patterson...

re: Official Malik Newman Buzz Thread - Manswers
[quote]If it were to happen, LSU next year would probably look like Villanova this season with a 4 guard line up.[/quote] Maybe, but I still think the most common lineup will have 2 bigs: Simmons (F), Victor/Mickey (F), Blakeney (G), Newman (G), TQ/Hornsby (G/F) Hornsby/TQ, Gray, Victor (i...
