| Tiger Rant|| re: Raises for the assistants - Tom Bronco on 12/22/14 at 1:24 pm|
I would think it would be the other way around and Chavis likes being at a school where the defense is the most important part of the team. He gets credit for a lot of the wins and is considered important and gets a huge salary.
If we had a strong offense, he would be a much smaller cog in the s...

I've seen too many seasons where we were supposed to be in the top tier of the conference and other teams were put down.
But it's the SEC. Every game will be tough unless we shoot well and play to our potential. Road games are never easy and we are bound to lose some to so called "bad" teams. An...

Basketball fans are very reactive, myself included. If we won the game he is a great coach. If not well he will be found wanting.
But I also think that basketball, more so than football, is largely won or lost on the player's abilities. Yes the coach has to put it in a framework so that those in...

Depends on how you define coach. There are many aspects to it. Recruiting, teaching, game strategy, public relations, entertainment, etc.
If you go by public relations, entertainment and building a program from less than nothing, then I would go with Dale Brown. I know what basketball in Louisian...

All the talk about three point percentages, guess who had the best percentage for us last year? Ready, wait for it, JOB shot 50%. Of course he only shot 2. Next, Darcy Malone, we all know how much he played and what a key part of the team he was last year.
The percentage that counted was one of ...

I hate that this is what college basketball has come down to. You finally get a good recruit and then if he plays up to his hype and has a good year, he only plays one or two years and goes pro.
No longer do we get to see a player stay four years and enjoy how they develop. It's almost like you ...

I'd say it's more put Martin in position for dribble drives where he can take it to the hole and draw fouls. I don't think he's a back to the basket guy.

He is very awkward driving to the basket and does not finish well. If he p...

Definitely should not have said he had an opinion in the way he did. As much as I think he is probably right in whatever he wants us to do (for sure nothing else is working), a player should never publicly dispute his coach. I fear if this keeps up he will ride the bench like Hickey from time to tim...

Number one a quarterback doesn't have to know the whole playbook to come in and throw a pass or two. Number two Miles is stubborn as the day is long. Once he decides something, he will stick to it in the face of logic forever. If Harris didn't know the playbook why in the frick did Miles start him a...
