re: How pumped are you for football season? On a scale of 1-10? - otowntiger
5.5 meh. There is some reason for optimism, but the proof is in the pudding and no one is tasting any pudding until the season starts and we see actual results....

re: It is time for men's basketball to reclaim its rightful place as 2nd biggest sport at LSU - otowntiger
[quote]In that time period the baseball program has become one of the best in the country. Basketball will never be there. [/quote]How do you know that? Before Skip Bertman, LSU baseball drew like 200 fans and never did anything. Basketball can get back on track and if and when it does it would be...

[quote]You sir, are an idiot. College baseball will NEVER be bigger than college basketball, sorry. I love the baseball Tigers don't get me wrong, but it's not even up for debate.[/quote] Agreed!...

re: No news, rumors, ideas, "inside reports" about Basketball coach search? - otowntiger
[quote] Dumb thread. Alleva said in his presser and letter that the search won't really begin until after the season is over and the coaches worth looking at (the ones still playing today and tomorrow) aren't busy. Now through the end of the month is the time for wild speculation, we won't have any...

re: No news, rumors, ideas, "inside reports" about Basketball coach search? - otowntiger
[quote]The silence by the administration, those on the inside, and us as fans clamoring for tid bits of information speaks volumes as to how much we all have become apathetic toward the basketball program in general. Obvious we just don't give a fu*k[/quote] yep, it seems you are correct. It is ...

No news, rumors, ideas, "inside reports" about Basketball coach search? - otowntiger
Doesn't seem like much action. Is Aleva being that discreet or is there just very little interest in this search, this time around? ...

re: Mike Martin, FSU baseball coach. Successful or failure? - otowntiger
A lot of futility. :lol: Seriously he is obviously a very good coach and incredibly consistent but over that long haul not being able to win one has got to be gnawing at him in the worst way. Being to the CWS so many times and not being able to take trophy home just once given all those chances ...

re: LSU - make me care about basketball again! - otowntiger
agreed. the hole is so deep now frankly that it could be a loooong time before basketball is relavant again. The good thing is, I believe it is easier to build a basketball program than most other sports due to the small scale. One or two players can make all the difference. And very importantly a...

re: Ron Higgins on who the frontrunners are for the LSU BB job - otowntiger
Given the lack of interest by this board as a prime example in the overall extreme low interest in the sport at LSU we will get who we deserve. I mean the hiring of a wide receiver coach could generate a 15 page thread on this site but one regarding the hiring of a basketball coach gets lost on pag...

re: Tim Brando apparently thinks Coach Jones couldn't get enough talent to LSU - otowntiger
[quote]Jones was a control freak who wouldn't let his Asst's help him do his job.[/quote]. That's funny. While it may be true he doesn't look to be someone who had control over much of anything on the sidelines. He never looked like he cared a whole lot....
