[quote]Exactly what he has been. A defensive guard that will get some 10 day contracts and may catch on a roster but will go undrafted..i agree TQ is further along than GT offensively but defensively GT was one of the best defensive guards in lsu history [/quote]
Ten day contracts is how he s...

With his rate of improvement between freshman and sophomore seasons combined with his length and skill set for his body type, I don't see how you can't at least entertain the idea that he might continue to develop into a legit NBA prospect. I'd be surprised is he's not at least a second team all sec...

With our depth, two games before UK could be too much for our guys to overcome with such a short turnaround. We often look gassed at the end of an...

[quote]It is incredible that this team can lose at home to Auburn. [/quote]
All teams have bad losses. UGA has been solid this season and has been a very gritty team. They dropped a home game to Auburn yesterday as well. Every tournament team not named Kentucky is going to have some wtf losses....

[quote]You think Quarterman and/or Hornsby would start or play at UK? [/quote]
I think they'd play. Hornsby was as good or better than the twins last night. Q, not so much. Overall team performance was equal to UK imo for athleticism and execution for that majority of the game until the very end....

[quote]What? The top six for UK will all be lottery picks in the NBA.[/quote]
I'm basing my statement solely on how the UK players played relative to how LSU played last night. I'm well aware that UK players are better overall and will have better pro careers. Six lottery picks should beat a 6-de...

On paper maybe. Last night our top 6 did just fine against the almighty Kentucky. We lost the game due to lack of depth and poor execution at the end, both have been trends this season....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Hard to beat Kentucky - JR Hamilsbach on 2/11/15 at 11:19 am|
We were flat the last 7 minutes, not just the last 2. I've watched all the games this year, not just last night's game. Fatigue issues due to lack of depth is consistently a serious issue for this team. ...

[quote]When they have 8 or 9 players that are better or as good as your best 2 players. This was the first game that I have watched from start to finish that Kentucky has played, its hard to defend that talent all night long. [/quote]
On paper maybe. From last night's game, I'd argue that our bes...

In basketball? I think that's very poss...

Agreed. I had 'em to cover, but would have thrown smaller on the ML if I had it available to me. I like LSU + anything against Vandy, but not as much as the UF Game since I think LSU has trouble getting up for games that they don't perceive as important....

Gross. I guess they knew something was up with where I play since they didn't post it. I texted my buddies suggesting they look at that game considering LSU can play with just about anyone when they're motivated to do so. Couple that with a down UF team with a few ho...

I think you run the risk of shattering Gray's confidence if you do this whereas what they're doing now is working. TQ continues to get meaningful minutes. I think the risk outweighs the reward. I'm totally onboard with y...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Josh Gray could easily be 3rd string PG - JR Hamilsbach on 1/21/15 at 1:07 pm|
I think Gray should continue to start. Jones has proven that he'll pull Gray if he makes mistakes. If Gray plays well, the team benefits from his ability to get in the lane and pass or score from there. The team is also deeper overall featuring him in the rotation early. If you sit him out the gate,...
