re: Football or strategic talk - King Joey
There is some, especially once the season gets closer, but you have to wade through a bunch of bs to find it. That's why I usually steer clear January through August. But I've gotten a bit bogged down in it this off-season so I think it's time to bail til late summer. There are other LSU sites th...

re: Per Scott Rabalais: No meeting scheduled with Alleva & Jones - King Joey
[quote]The press almost always knows before the coach.[/quote]The press always "knows" everything first, because they will report it as soon as there's a possibility of it happening (cf., Herbie in '07 "Miles to Michigan!"), because it is way more important for them to be first than for them to be c...

re: Official SEC tournament LSU/State game thread Final: Johnny Jones to be fired - King Joey
[quote]Your logic suggests they are basically doing this on purpose?[/quote]No, I think it's pretty clear that he's pointing out that bad coaching can turn talented players into sloppy, careless performers who have the ability to avoid these kinds of mistakes if they have a coach who forces them to ...

re: Watershed moment for LSU Basketball in Assembly Center 2/11/78 - King Joey
[quote]Were the students court side ( I believe they were), Instead of behind a basket?[/quote]Yes, they were. They were courtside til the '90s, when the TAF got them pushed out to sell the courtside tickets. :cheers: :geauxtigers: :cheers:...

re: So are we still excited about the baseball team - King Joey
[quote]But it has become a trend under CPM.[/quote]What has? Having pitchers give up runs? That's pretty much going to happen 100% of the time when you lose games (hard to lose a shutout, right?). It is very easy to look back on games where we lost and see a pattern of mistakes. But without look...

[quote]I can see this. I can also see Dale blaming the evils of social media and its minions for cowardly tearing down a good man.[/quote]Eh, maybe for the ad hominems on Jones. But I really can't see Dale bashing LSU for letting Jones go in a situation like this. I know he's a fan and friend of J...

re: Man Alleva Has Made Us The Joke On Inside The NBA - King Joey
[quote]Well you recalled wrong.[/quote]Ah, I see. Which post was it that claimed his UNT resume warranted hiring him at LSU? Yes, I overstated the "complete failure" comment. But claiming that it is "a stretch" to call a record of 5 20+-win seasons in 6 years a "consistent 20-game winner" is se...

re: LSU should be a perennial basketball power - King Joey
[quote]Way to horribly misconstrue what I said.[/quote]If I misconstrued what you said, and you actually don't think it would be easy to be successful next year, then precisely what part of his suggestion that it would be a struggle to be successful next year were you did you not "buy"? :cheers:...

re: DBU Drafted DBs 17 Through 1 - King Joey
I would note that while the OP goes back to Corey Webster and Travis Daniels, the CBS "News" poll cuts off at 10 years ago. That leaves at least three of our major stars (Webster, Daniels and Landry) off the list for at least part of their NFL careers. :cheers: :geauxtigers: :cheers:...
