re: Not funny anymore, Jones needs to go NOW - King Joey
[quote]Those stats never happens if he's fired after only 5 seasons.[/quote]Why would he have been fired after 5 seasons? He had a winning record in his 5th season. After four years of building the program that was a pereniel afterthought (more losing seasons than winning seasons the previous 10 a...

re: LSU should be a perennial basketball power - King Joey
[quote][quote]No matter who is coaching [b]next year[/b], it will be an uphill climb to get relevant again.[/quote]I just don't buy this.[/quote]You think it will be breeze for someone to just walk in and be a Final Four contender day 1?[quote]I see no reason we can't be a tournament team with 1 or ...

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:...

re: Which coach do you think jimmy ott was referring to? - King Joey
[quote]If for some reason it was Tony Bennett[/quote]You know, I don't recognize a basketball coach by that name, so the first thing that popped into my mind was the singer. And I was still okay with it (although I believe he, too, may be deceased). :cheers: :geauxtigers: :cheers:...

re: Best athlete from LSU - King Joey
[quote]The great athletes in baseball would have a better chance playing another sport than others trying to play baseball. That's a fact.[/quote]So basically you're saying that Cal Ripken was a better football player than Barry Sanders or Randy Moss, and a better basketball player than LeBron James...

re: Best athlete from LSU - King Joey
[quote]You can be a fat arse in any sport and be a great player.[/quote]Struggling to remember the "fat arse" that was a great basketball player. Even Shaq and Sir Charles were not "fat arses" when they were great basketball players.[quote]A GREAT ATHLETE on a baseball field will trump GREAT ATHLET...

re: LSU Basketball: 1-14 SEC Record - King Joey
[quote]No one liked this hire when it happened.[/quote]Pretty much true, as I recall.[quote]Jones has lived up to all expectations[/quote]I don't recall anyone thinking it would get THIS bad, though. Is this record-setting bad for LSU Basketball? This has to be the worst we've been since pre-Marav...

re: Basketball: LSU 85, Kentucky 92 | Final - King Joey
[quote]Kentucky didn't play much defense and we made some 3's in the last 2 minutes to make it look closer than it was.[/quote]That's what I was afraid of. Oh, well. At least the score looked respectable on the sports pages. :cheers: :geauxtigers: :cheers:...

re: St. Aug and Landry/Walker NOT going to "boycott" meeting - King Joey
[quote]If he did cook this story then he just toasted himself in this state.[/quote]I'm curious how you mean "toasted" himself? I mean, at most I would expect sources would stop giving him information. But since it seems pretty clear he needs neither sources nor information to write stories, I don...

re: Texas A&M isn't good, so we actually have a chance tonight.... - King Joey
[quote]The 30 point loss wasn't as close as the final score. Let that sink in for a moment.[/quote]That is a scary thought. And what is scarier still to me is that, not having seen that game, I'm not at all inclined to question your assessment. :cheers: :geauxtigers: :cheers:...

re: Booger M. told Miles he drove a Mercedes(Team) like a Yugo - King Joey
[quote]Really Dinardo had nothing but Saban had a lot of solid players on the roster when he got here.[/quote]DiNardo didn't even have "nothing". Gabe Northern, Eddie Kennison, Tory James, James Gilyard, Chuck Wiley, Kenny Mixon, Markeith Spears, Alan Faneca, Kendall Cleveland, David LaFleur; they ...

re: Grade the recruiting class by position. - King Joey
B, C-, C+, F, B, A, B+, A+ According to GPA calculations, that's a 2.7 average. And this is a top 10 class? That seems a bit disjointed. If I were going to weigh the positions (like credit hours for classes) in terms of importance in general, I think I'd do it like this: QB -- 4 hours RB...

[quote]In any event, why did Les Miles lose two games in 2005 when he had inherited a team stockpiled with a championship level of talent already?[/quote]National Championship talent? What "National Championship" did the talent he inherited on that team win? They were a 9-3 team the year before, a...

re: Booger M. told Miles he drove a Mercedes(Team) like a Yugo - King Joey
[quote]We got 3 losses with Miles[/quote]You do realize that Saban left LSU with a 3-loss season, right? And that there were only 12 games including the bowl back then? Funny how one guy -- who lost more than 3 games 40% of the time -- wins a Championship and loses 3 games and it's a "dynasty th...

re: Booger M. told Miles he drove a Mercedes(Team) like a Yugo - King Joey
[quote]How Orgeron performs has absolutely nothing to do with whether Les needed to be fired[/quote]That is absurd. Any change to a program that results in the program getting worse is a change the had a bad result. When that bad result was more likely to occur than a good result, the decision was...
