re: How can Johnny possibly live up to the hype? - jptiger2009
I agree that there's no comparing the 2 teams' talents. So, let's get back to the initial arguement. Is it not ok to expect championships if your team goes after and gets the best talent? And, I'm specifically talking basketball here. 1 or 2 great players with good support can surely win a natty...

[quote]Right. Anthony Davis was the only good player on that 2012 national championship team. [/quote] did I say that? no. In fact, [after] that, I said that Simmons has the team around him to pull it off. :rolleyes:...

[quote]Anyone expecting a final four run is an idiot. Too many variables in the NCAA tournament[/quote] you go after and get the best talent in the world and fans tend to expect big things. JJ has progressed each year. At some point (soon), JJ will be expected to get be in position to and the...

[quote]His talent jump was Quarterman-esque[/quote] gauging the jump, ok, you can go with that. But, my point was to say that having to rely on a guy like Tuba for any support should be and needs to be in LSU's distant past. ...

re: '15-16 Basketball starting line-up and what (you) expect it to be - jptiger2009
[quote]Too many better ball handlers on the team now[/quote] I'd still argue that Gray is the best ball handler on the team. This year, we just need him to be a solid distributor. I feel that a lot of the bone-headed mistakes from last year were due to his challenges managing the game. With Simmo...

[quote]Gray Blakeney Hornsby Simmons Victor [/quote] that is a very solid line-up, Sir. And, with you on the no stand-out Center. But, just like late last season, I see Malone starting most games for us this season. He is the perfect player to come in and beat up the opposition's big man...

'15-16 Basketball starting line-up and what (you) expect it to be - jptiger2009
This line-up is very stacked, and this line-up will certainly change throughout the year. But, to begin the year, I see: Gray Hornsby Quarterman Simmons Malone 6th man - Patterson You can say what you want about Gray starting at PG, but it is what it will be. Gray is indeed one of 2 se...

re: Ben Simmons at Nike Elite Camp. Wow - jptiger2009
:hail: I'm with you on all accounts, but I think that we should start expecting more from JJ's teams. After last season's disappointment, I'll agree that a Sweet 16 run would provide JJ and more importantly LSU bball credibility. Sweet 16 would indeed be the next step. But, if JJ continues ...

re: Ben Simmons at Nike Elite Camp. Wow - jptiger2009
SOS, I want some early season predictions from you, Sir. Are we SEC Champs in '15-16? Are we a top regional seed in the NCAAs? Are we final four or bust? Will this 1-and-done team win it all??? If yes or no, the most important question would be: can JJ sustain this program from...

therefore motivate his teams? Just curious... For one, Louis Coleman pitches for the AAA Omaha team. I would think that he would have been a perfect speaker to a team that just got trounced in their opener to TCU. Just a small amout of motivation, especially from a champion, goes a very lo...
