re: Temple and Daddy Dale, no way they still want Johnny is there? - Tiger Ugly
[quote]but after how last season turned out, and how this one is going so far no way they still give him their full support right?!? [/quote] You have to realize that when Dale "retired" he recommended Johnny for the job and said he deserved it. Imagine, the lead assistant and head recruiter...

re: Options for Showing Disgust with Basketball Program - Tiger Ugly
[quote]Apathy is worst than disgust imo[/quote] 100% agree, and that's what's happened to basketball. Our hoops team has become Tulane. Nobody cares and nobody's watching. I gotta admit, even I...who have been going for over 40 years and always loved hoops equally to football...after what hap...

re: Seriously, Has Johnny Jones Lost His Team? - Tiger Ugly
For me it's pretty simple...yes...just watch the last two years. Early on it was just the prima-donnas Mickey and Martin who he had trouble getting to play hard and listen consistently. Now it has spread like wildfire. A team with as many long athletic kids as we have should not be playing su...

re: Let jones stay until we fire alleva - Tiger Ugly
I would at least say we need to re-vamp the hiring method and actually make an attempt at a legit coaching search, tell Collis Temple thanks for your past help but you are no longer needed at the table for basketball decisions, and get together a committee of people who actually give a shite and want...

re: Am I the only one that thinks Johnny Jones deserves 1 more yr? - Tiger Ugly
Unfortunately, yes you are. Due to the implosion last year that IMHO was building steadily as the lack of accountability started to come back to roost on CJJ...the program under Johnny has reached IMHO a point of no return. I just don't think you can get that respect back once it is lost to this d...

re: Jones' Post-Game Comments - Tiger Ugly
I've repeated this several times and will again. When you have something happen like happened last year, where your team for all intents and purposes, quits on you and you no longer command respect....and half the players returning were part of that...I can't possibly see how he could command respe...

re: Should CJJ coach the next LSU basketball game? - Tiger Ugly
[quote]The only reason he's still HC is because so many LSU Alums/Fans have given up on Basketball, have lost interest in the program and have not put any heat on Snow Peas Joe to make a change. [/quote] IMHO this is absolutely the case. Anyone watching what unfolded last year....seeing that a...

re: Should CJJ coach the next LSU basketball game? - Tiger Ugly
[quote]I just don't understand what people thought was going to happen this season.[/quote] I think what most people thought was going to happen was evidenced by what we were picked to finish in the SEC....12th...and that was with Craig Victor. The issue for me with that is we were not picked ...

re: Answer 2 Qs. Is JJ worst BB Coach in LSU history? Currently worst in the SEC? - Tiger Ugly
[quote]And for those who hate Trent so bad don't forget that horrific seed and draw we got as the SEC champs in 2009.

re: How long before johnny jones packs his bag... - Tiger Ugly
[quote] If LSU wasn't on his degree, he wouldn't be here now. [/quote] This is unquestionable. Nor would he have been hired at any other school at this level. As I've said 100 times, I like Johnny. Everybody likes Johnny. That's why he got the job. It certainly was not his resume, if that ...

re: Over/Under 3 SEC wins for Men's BBall - Tiger Ugly
I'll say over. But not by much. Still a lot of bad teams in the SEC and I think what you'll see are a few games where the kids decide to bust it. But those games will be too few and far between if what we've seen the last 4+ years plays out if history tells us anything, and we have been shown no ...

[quote]Sad part is we use to be a top 15 program in basketball not all that long ago [/quote] Outside of '79-91 and a couple of good tourney runs in '86 and '87 I don't think we were ever at that level with any consistency. However, we did make the tournament 10 years in a row which means we w...
