re: Why does LSU ever lose to Ole Miss and Arkansas? - Tom Bronco
Lot of talent out there these days. Everyone recruits the best they can. They are always more up for us than we are for them. Blame the coaching staff for that. One of their jobs is motivating. Ask Dale Brown how some of his LSU teams won games they had no business winning if you went by talent. ...

re: Kenny Hilliard Projections - Tom Bronco
I agree that this is as good a trio of running backs as we have ever had and that is saying a lot. If the offensive line is as good as advertised, watch out! Hilliard is the forgotten man but he can resurrect old memories and create a lot of new ones. I hope he at least get's the chance. Les may...

re: Could Darrell Williams be the number 2 running back this season? - Tom Bronco
No! Kenny Hilliard is the forgotten man. But he still has the ability to be a great back. How many carries will he get? Don't know but we definitely don't need a 4th back. [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl3HyFaWK-s)]Hilliard Highlights[/link]...

re: 2014-2015 Men's Basketball Roster - Tom Bronco
Depth, defense and foul trouble will be the keys. We have to play better defense than last year while not getting into foul trouble as we have no depth. Expectations may be way too high again. It will be feast or famine. When our outside shots are falling and we are playing half way ok defense i...

re: Jeremy Hill new ride - Tom Bronco
[quote]Pretty fricking stupid purchase. But hey good for him.

Most NFL players end up that way. They don't ...

[quote]I'll miss Hickey. He was one of my favorite players in recent memory. One of the few true point guards we have had in some time.

re: Hickey, Hammink, Morgan not returning (OP Updated with Moscona tweet) - Tom Bronco
Well first I think it's sad. I'm old school and like to have players that come back and we have continuity. I find it more than a little weird that fans that praised players when they are here can turn on them so easily when they leave. Apparently none of these players left on their own but were ask...

re: Jordan Mickey to stay at LSU for sophomore year! - Tom Bronco
NBA said the same thing I said - not strong enough. Look at games and it is obvious. Outmuscled on rebounds and when he was trying for a putback. His great defense was mainly off ball when he blocked a shot after one of his teammates let their guy get by for a drive. He also benefitted on offense a ...

re: Jordan Mickey announcing future plans @ 2 - Tom Bronco
Even if it is good PR it is stupid to have a press conference to say you are going to come back. Especially someone who is clearly not ready like Mickey. If a fan has to be motivated by a press conference to think about basketball then they aren't really a basketball fan. ...

re: Anyone have a class with JOB III? - Tom Bronco
Pretty much agree with everything you said there Mr. Ugly. It is so easy to build up players and expectations when they haven't even played one minute for us yet. It is extremely rare for a player to come out of high school and live up to the hype. Mickey did it this year but he is the first in a lo...

re: Anyone have a class with JOB III? - Tom Bronco
I would be shocked if he isn't going to declare. If he got the right team and coach and works hard, I could see him playing four or five years and making quite a bit of money. Whether it was done deliberately, as a condition for him coming back this year, or not, his abilities were given a showc...

re: 2013-2014 Season Recap and Quick Look Forward - Tom Bronco
Coleman and Stringer had great senior seasons. Can't fault either of those two for effort and heart. JOB had a mixed season and we seemed to rise or fall on his shoulders way too much. I think with him gone we can have a more balanced team offense. I do think he has a shot at a pro career as he won'...

Dylan wrote about it in his autobiography. Walton is into the music of the 60's and so am I so I don't mind when he starts rambling about that.

Quarterman was obviously playing to impress the home folks since he is from Georgia and he definitely did. The refs sucked as usual. JOB got beat up every time and very few calls.
