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...

Lunardi doesn't solely rely on the BPI or RPI rankings, much like the actuall NCAA selection committee doesn't. Its a decen...

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 ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: This LSU hoops squad opinions. - BayouWolf on 12/22/13 at 11:45 am|
I would agree that DMitch was more of an undersized SG than a pure PG, but he handled the ball a ton during his time at LSU. I love Stringer, he is a great tiger, but his brother put it well, comparing him to Marcus or DMitch isn't fair to anybody. Darrell is the all-time leader in 3-pointers made...

Too early in the season to mean much but good to see we are getting notoriety and respect. Our early RPI numbers are strong as well. Would be nice to build momentum with a road win at Texas Tech tonight and home win over UAB coming up.

A guy of DMitch's caliber would make well over $100k a year and wouldn't suprise me if made closer to $200k a year. Again, as has mentioned, when you play overseas, the team pays for all the taxes and your housing so much ...

He'd make over 100k (no taxes, no rent) if he went overseas right now, maybe more.
Bigger question (if he does declare and ends up overseas)is the cultural change to living in small European cities versus being home i...

Our RPI is now 83 after last night (according to ESPN). Still not in the conversation of the bubble though. If we can make the SEC Tourney final and beat Ole Miss, we'll have beat 3 more top 60 RPI teams and will get a SOS and RPI boost even if we lost to Florida.
Thats the only way we have a...

A few comments.
1) on next year's team being more talented than '06? ----- I think it could be deeper but not more talented. 2006 had DMitch who was 1st team All-SEC, Glen Davis was SEC POY and bonafied NBA player, Tyrus was a top 5 pick, Garrett was one of the top defensive players in the count...
