Isn't it amazing how we always think the other coach is better but yet they do a lot of the same things we do? If we had taken and missed as many three's as South Carolina did in the first half most ranters would want Johnny fired because we don't have an offense. All we do is pass it around the per...

That didn't have anything to do with coaching. Gray got beat twice. He was betting on the out pass and probably wanted to intercept and head down court....

South Carolina may be shitting the bed in conf play. They did beat Iowa st and Oklahoma st earlier this year.
They've played everyone but ole miss and UK tight as well. Pretty sure that guy is just scoping their record

[quote]I did leave out turnovers.

South, you left out one of the most important stats for this team (to's) turnovers. IMO that is this team's achiles heel. Time and time again we make careless passes or try to dribble through two or three players.
Josh Gray has gotten a lot of criticism on this front and rightly so. He is now sp...

Could be just a coach who cares about a former player but then again if Harris was up for recruiting again guess who regains some prestige? If nothing else the coach gets a lot of free meals and drinks. Of course, no one is ever self interested right?...

Yeah I thought the same thing. Stallings spent more time out on the court than his sixth man. And the calls went their way all night. The blocked shot that wasn't a goal tend. Martin taking the ball out of the Vandy player's hands cleanly and getting a foul. And them being on our backs and pushing o...

It isn't as though they aren't good or even great players most of the time. It is about LSU as a team being potentially a great team if they play [i]SMARTER[/i]!
Isn't it about winning the game? They did some great stuff tonight. They also pulled some bonehead turnovers, got lazy on defense and m...

Tempo and fouls are the key. We have to force the tempo with some pressing without racking up too many fouls. And of course, as always, turnovers have to be controlled.
If we do those three we win easily. If not, well, it will be a shooting contest and Vandy likely wins that....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Big Picture Issue with LSU Recruiting - Tom Bronco on 1/23/15 at 10:12 am|
Yes they were.
So was Rettig. We also had Mett for 2 years before that who was very sought after. Jarrett Lee was an Elite 11 QB. Hell, even Jordan Jefferson was a 4* guy.
Before that we had Ryan Perrilloux, the #1 QB in the country. Before that we had 4* Matt Flynn and Jamarcus Rus...

How do you judge that before they even get on the court and play? Okay, Ben Simmons is the best looking high school player I have ever seen. I would be shocked if he didn't excel. But the other two are unproven and may flop....

This years team will make the tournament for sure
They are good shape, but still have much more work to do. Still inconsistent and turn the ball over too much. Lost to probably the second worst team in the SEC a week ago. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

I think we are a better team if at least one of the M&M boys go. I just can't see all three of the big guys having enough room on the court to do their thing if they are all three out there.
Watching Big Ben's video makes me want him to have plenty of room to maneuver. And I think at this point ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: The future of LSU basketball - Tom Bronco on 1/18/15 at 12:37 pm|
First of all give A&M some credit. They have some talent(especially the guards) and played good defense.
Second we still should have beat them handily. Why didn't we? We shot way too many three's in the second half, had too many turnovers(Josh Gray comeon!) and allowed way too many easy layups. ...
