I'm sorry I called you a moron and other thoughts - tenacious
After the game I was very irritated, and when I came to The Rant, it just made it worse (It usually does). Most people were solely blaming our coach for the loss, which is unfair, IMO. So, I called people morons, which wasn't fair either. The truth is that JJ deserves some criticism, mainly for ...

You got me, man. College basketball players can't be held responsible for making free throws. It's on the coach. I get it now. Thanks. ...

I say that Hornsby failed to execute free throws better this year than last. I certainly don't think its because of his coach. He knows how to shoot free throws by now. His 3 point percentages went up throughout the year. His coach told him to shoot more, and it served him and the team well. I just ...

Free throws are not on the coaches. These guys have been going to camps since 7th grade. They've played AAU ball, and have had the best coaching money can buy for a long time. They've been taught the fundamentals of shooting over and over again. I'm just not buying what you're selling about free thr...

Yep. You're right. It's the coach. It's all the coach. We missed 5 lay ups and 7 straight free throws because of the coach. I'm done. ...

re: People say this game doesn't fall on coaching, but I disagree - tenacious
Ok. You have a point about the bench. But that's not why this team lost the game tonight. They lost because they choked. They missed shots that every team knows they have to make to win. They missed shots that they practice. Please don't try to tell me that a major college program doesn't practice f...

Nobody has a problem with Jones's development of Tim Quarteman. Hell, I though he totally sucked last year. That guy improved big time. Where's the praise for his development?...

re: People say this game doesn't fall on coaching, but I disagree - tenacious
Nobody is even arguing that you don't need a bench. Of course we need depth. We don't have it. My argument is that you can't sit here and blame this loss on the coach because he can't somehow conjure up something that he doesn't have. Without any depth, he's managed to get his team in the dance and ...

re: People say this game doesn't fall on coaching, but I disagree - tenacious
Development. The most overused term ever. Maybe they're as developed as they are going to be. Maybe they just don't have it. Maybe they seemed like they might be better than they actually are. Who cares? Are you going to deny that this program is heading in the right direction under JJ? ...

I didn't say anything about any of that. All I said was that they had a good year, and I enjoyed being in the mix again. Why is it so hard for you miserable people to say something positive?...

Are you even reading what you write before you post? 3 years? That's a very short amount of time to build a team, especially in college basketball, when players leave early all the time. Give the guy at least five years before you lynch him. Oh, and by the way... He lead the team to their firs...

It was great to be somewhat relevant in basketball again. Sucks to lose the way we did, but I enjoyed seeing them get back to the Big Dance. Here's to next year!...

So, JJ is supposed to ride Darcy freaking Malone all the way to NCAA Tournament glory? I can see it now: Malone holds the ball as time expires and "One Shining Moment" starts to play as the Tigers upset Kentucky to win it all. You people are ridiculous. ...

What's this tired legs crap? It's the NCAA Tourney! You gut it out and make your damn free throws. Period. It's what they've dreamed about their whole life, and you're going to blame it on tired legs? Please!...

re: If you blame this on coaching, you're a moron - tenacious
What's he supposed to do? Create bench players out of thin air? LSU has some talent, but they are thin. There's no depth. It's part of building a program, and it's hard to do. JJ is doing it, but it's not there yet. I don't care if the players are tired. It's the Tourney. You gut it out and s...
