| Tiger Rant|| re: Keep an eye on Tennessee's Hoops Coaching Search - Alt26 on 4/17/14 at 2:43 pm|
Well, there were many here who think Jones needs a "x's and o's" coach on the bench. Charlie Leonard isn't going anywhere, and neither is Patrick as long as LSU still wants Ben Simmons. So if Jones wants that coveted bench coach then McCray would have to be the odd man out. FWIW, if McCray were t...

You'll get a lot of negative responses, but I don't think anything you're saying is off-base. LSU's D-line was as bad as they have been for a while, and I don't think it was a coincidence that the defense as a whole struggled for the first time in 4 years. I'm optimistic that the front 7 will be i...

It's funny how so many "scouts" here can watch the same video, yet see things completely differently.

No. While it might be popular initially, it would quickly turn into just another subsidy for the "poor".

Good to hear. The numbers mean that LSU has to have some attrition on their roster (at minimum one more guy. Hopefully not Mickey), so there was a bit of a question as to if Hickey was/is returning. If Mickey comes back LSU should be able to athletically compete with any team in the SEC, includin...

I agree.

The other 70 teams with winning records should just play meaningless e...
