Playing time probably is what spooked Quarterman. He was facing Hickey, Gray
and Hornsby (both 2 years) ahead of him and another scholarship pg to challenge him for
minutes. With Hickey gone he probably starts on the wing where I think he develops into a
Garrett Temple clone. ...

This is one of the things I hate about college athletics. Scholarships are renewable annually, so you can be asked to move on annually. That said, not shocked that Hickey wont be back. More surprised that LSU legacies - Hammink/Morgan won't be back. Plus Morgan being injured and all. If you consider...

You guys. How is the presser not a good thing? He's staying, good for LSU. Optimism for next year grows. He leaves, still good for LSU longterm. It suggests that the staff got him ready in one year which will be attractive to future recruits.
If he's a projected 1st rounder he's gone. FYI...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Johnny Jones Quote on Hickey re: Leadership - ToneyTiger on 4/1/14 at 4:09 pm|
Hickey can't be the leader if he's in the doghouse every season. Each year of Jones' tenure he has been disciplined one way or another. That's all Quarterman starting at the beginning of the season was about. You saw his play...There's no way Quarterman should have been starting. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Some LSU Basketball perspective for our program's direction - ToneyTiger on 3/21/14 at 12:30 pm|
I'll preface my comments with I didn't agree with hiring Coach Jones. I wasn't sold that he was a good enough coach. Good enough recruiter, yes, but coach no. But I am rooting for him.
What I thought would happen under Coach Jones is he would get good enough players, win a lot of games, but stil...

4. Scroll to score/schedule link (under CLA state champs photo). Nevermind that it says "2011-12"

I think he is still a legit D1 recruit, but he will have to play his way back up the rankings.
Scotlandville is at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest in Duncanville, Texas later this month. That should be a great opportunity to make a splash for him. Julius Randle (ESPN #3), Jarrell Martin and Madison Pre...

JOB to the NBA is not that far of a stretch. He is the most talented guy on the roster and if he gets touches in the paint he should have a break out year. If JOB he has an All SEC type season I think the NBA will actually be an option for him next summer. ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Basketball recruiting 2013: Jarell Martin commits - ToneyTiger on 10/2/12 at 3:53 pm|
I checked ESPN yesterday and they hadn't updated the list, so this is great news. Martin pushes them at least into the Top 10. However, no ranking will be accurate when most don't factor in the juco signees.

Derenbecker/Turner/Stringer were all Top 80 recruits. Jalen Courtney had other SEC offers. JOB was McD's All American.

I envision Martin as a SF, but he could very well be a a "stretch" PF because of his ball handling and shooting ability, but he's also a good rebounder. In addition, Martin has length (6'8" at least) and is athletic. He's the biggest talent out of BR since the Brandon Bass/Glen Davis/Tasmin Mitchell...

I always thought the Arizona talk was his "dream" school. If Bridgewater were a legit 6'6" he would still be a top 50 recruit. I think he's that talented. I still think he will find a high major program somewhere. My guess is that he will sign late somewhere (like Tyrus Thomas) and have a solid care...
