[quote]Your surprised and think we should be favored because we play poorly @ Vandy? I'm so confused by that statement[/quote]
Just providing my thoughts on reasons why the line would favor Vandy(we've struggled there historically, road games are hard, Vandy played well at UK) but that overall I ...
| Tiger Rant|| Opening Line: LSU +3 @ Vandy - BayouWolf on 1/23/15 at 2:52 pm|
Somewhat surprised to see us as a 3 point underdog. We've historically played poorly at Vandy and they did play well at UK but was assuming it would eseentially be a pick'em or us as a slight favorite given we've won our last two road games.
What does the rant think?...

The 2003 class (Brandon Bass, Tack Minor, Regis Koundjia, Darnell Lazare, Ross Neltner) has to be up there. It was the #2 class in the country behind Kansas. In hindsight, Tack and Regis didn't pan out and Ross transfered but on recruiting ranking alone its tough to beat or argue against. 3 recru...

Too early to mean much outside of our OOC schedule and performance is respected more than previous years. The WVU win is paying huge dividends and the guys avoided any truly bad losses (Clemson is bad but not horrible...)

No way. Perception gets skewed when you sit in the stadium because it's tough to see all the LSU fans below or above you (depending on where you are sitting).
I was there as well and then watched the tv replay and it was certainly close to 50/50 as it should've been. ...

[quote]I'm glad they won and I'll take a win however they can get it, but damn most of the game they played sloppy. So many turnovers against the press, Martin still trying to jack up 3's like he's a 50% shooter (1/20 on the year so far from 3), Mickey was in foul trouble early and didn't play most...

Struggled shooting in some games this season but he hit some huge shots including the late 3 to go get the lead. Guy plays 110% every play and is going to be a big part of this team the next 2 seasons. Huge win for the resume. ...

Great test for the guys. Really interested to see how they respond in a hostile environment. Going to take our best game of the year but this team has a lot of really good pieces and Tuesday showed they are starting to gel. Great to see. ...

We opened at 7.5 point underdogs. Going to be a tough game obvioulsy but nice to head in to that matchup with some confidence and momentum. Really curious to see if the guys can handle their first game together in a true road environment. Need our Big 4 to all have solid games to have a realistic...

Excited for the game. I think we have great balance both in scoring options but also maturity with 4 of the 5 starters starting for at least one full season priority this one (granted not all at LSU). This is the type of game that LSU needs to gain some confidence heading into the paradise jam and b...

I don't agree but interesting that he may not even start and if he does start or get meaningful snaps it's likely at safety. Link requires insider access. Excerpt is below:
"Mills has very good height for a corner and should continue to fill out his frame. His top-end speed is above-average but n...

Totally agree. Shavon and Andre are 100% classy guys and types of players you want in your program. Hard-working, no complaining, god body language on the court and appear to be great people off the court.
Let's send them off right and lock up the 6 seed. That would mean likely playing an Alabam...

[quote]He has Oregon as "Next four out." His BPI Ranking has Oregon as a 6 seed. [/quote]
Point taken that the ESPN BPI index is not close on some of the seedings in bracketology.
My bigger point orginially is just that though, Lundardi doesn't base his seedings off BPI, he bases it off of a...

For everybody who seems to think that the UGA loss doomed this teams chances of making the tourney, it would appear you are off base. Plenty of other bubble teams lost too and there is still a month of basketball to be played. You need Insider access to pull up the article but i've copied a brief ...
