re: Preview: LSU @ South Carolina Wednesday 6pm ESPN2 - Alt26
IMO, this game will be a good barometer to tell us just how good LSU is. South Carolina is not a "great" team, but they appear to be a bad matchup for LSU. South Carolina is much like UF and A&M in terms of their style of play. They want to grind the game out on defense in the half court. LSU h...

re: CBS' Jerry Palm, "Without that Kentucky win, LSU is barely an NIT team" - Alt26
[quote]This is why this whole thread is useless. It is painfully obvious that Jerry Palm has not watched and/or paid attention to the fact that we were missing our 2nd and 3rd leading scorer[/quote] True. However, WITH their 2nd and 3rd leading scorers LSU still has losses to 3 of the 4 "good" t...

re: If the SEC tourney began today - Alt26
[quote]The 1 seed should have the easiest game if there is going to be a 2 game play in[/quote] There's no "play-in". Everyone makes the tournament (though Mizzou is sitting out this year). Presumably the #1 seed is going to get the "easiest" matchup in their first game - the winner of the #8...

re: Manning is the greatest free agent pick up in NFL history - Alt26
Manning joined a good team and made them great. He also joined a historically very, very good franchise and led them to even more success. Still, he was a VERY small part of Denver's success this season and last night. In fact, he had the worst statistical season of any super bowl starting QB. H...

re: Is there anything that can be done to improve the PMAC? - Alt26
[quote]The lines at concessions stands would be a lot better if they had people who can work simple math. I was at the game Saturday and ordered a bottled water, nachos and a hot dog. It was $11 and she had to use her phone calculator. I gave her a $20 bill and she had to use it again to see she nee...

re: How does LSU match up with South Carolina? - Alt26
[quote]I'm going off facts. LSU has laid inexplicable eggs at mind boggling times, why am I to believe otherwise just yet? Because LSU is on a two game winning streak against two teams that are 9-13?[/quote] No question. But the "eggs" were usually laid against teams like Auburn and MSU. That d...

re: Marco Rubio repeats himself 3 times on ABC's 'this week' - Alt26
Rubio has always come across like an actor playing a senator/candidate in a movie rather than an actual politician. He may not be the worst candidate in the field, but it's hard to believe he has any independent thoughts. It's like he's on the debate stage just reading from some sort of GOP membersh...

re: The state of LSU basketball as of 2/7/2016, come on in and see the truth... - Alt26
Stunning turnaround once the calendar flipped to 2016. The one glaring omission on LSU's resume right now is that they only have one (2 if you want to count Vandy) good win. Huge opportunity this week to fill that gap. 2-0 would be great, but 1-1 is a must. Can't give the committee any reason to...

re: How does LSU match up with South Carolina? - Alt26
Not great. USC is a lot like A&M and UGA in that they want to grind games out on defense and rebounding. That's not LSU's game. That said, if LSU is knocking down shots like they have done over the last couple of games it doesn't matter...

re: Preview: LSU vs Mississippi State Saturday 5pm PMAC/ESPN2 - Alt26
I'm really surprised State isn't better. They've got some veteran talent, a couple of good newcomers, and a proven HC. Hopefully this isn't the game where they put it all together ...

re: Updated Bracket Projections - Alt26
[quote]Another thing the committee likes is teams that are hot late in the season. Cant afford to have a losing record in those last 4/5 games[/quote] That used to be an important factor. Remember, that was a huge reason LSU made the tournament in 2003. Today, I don't think it's all that import...

re: Updated Bracket Projections - Alt26
[quote]Any guy who is predicting Vandy at this point into the tournament but leaves LSU out isn't worth noting[/quote] Vandy has a significantly better RPI and SOS than LSU right now. Head to head results isn't always the "tiebreaker". Otherwise, LSU would have been out and A&M would have been ...

[quote]1) Strong knows that the kid is committed to LSU and that LSU is not offering another kid a spot that might really want to be at LSU.

re: Bracketology - LSU is in! (2/1) - Alt26
[quote]I disagree. That would put us at 12-6 with wins over UK, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Georgia. Plus we pass the eye test. So far every loss except the outlier against college of Charleston has essentially gone down to the final possession. With a team as weird as LSU they're going to take that in...

re: Bracketology - LSU is in! (2/1) - Alt26
Right now Lunardi is the only guy with any clout that has LSU "in" at the moment. http://www.bracketmatrix.com/ People keep saying that the committee wants Simmons in the tournament at all cost. While I don't think that is completely untrue, I think the biggest factor LSU has going for them i...
