re: 5 star F Naz Reid - Manswers
Yeah, and I bet you and all the other guys making these "hilarious" comments would have no trouble saying them to his face, right? These comments are tasteless and not helpful....

re: Naz Reid 6'10 240 #2 PF/#7 overall down to final two - Manswers
The operative phrase is "what Will Wade has done". That's broader than just being in the hunt for Reid, which is not all, or even predominantly about, luck. I am very impressed with how he's remade the team in such a short period of time. Waters, Kiir, Edwards, et al., all in 2017. Luck has nothing ...

re: 5 star F Naz Reid - Manswers
These sorts of comments about a prospect's girl friend, particularly someone who is a new signee for the women's team, are not helpful. Regardless of the status of their relationship, they are 18 year olds and don't deserve the tasteless public comments. I can't imagine either Reid or his girl frien...

re: Why does LSU have a "must have HC experience" requirement? - Manswers
[quote]Mike Archer[/quote] That's the first thing I thought of before I opened the thread. Of course the guy we hired after him who had head coaching experience was worse. I don't know how LSU puts in an easy to follow rule so that the AD can say something better than "hey, I followed the rule no...

re: LSU at N. Carolina - Basketball 1984 Reynolds v. MJ duel - 29 points each - Manswers
[quote]Good grief - anyone who has ever scoffed at the notion that "announcers hate LSU" should watch this clip... that dude squealed like a girl for every NC basket, and then muttered about an octave lower when the Tigers would answer. Unreal.[/quote] At the beginning of the game during the pla...

re: LSU at N. Carolina - Basketball 1984 Reynolds v. MJ duel - 29 points each - Manswers
He really was a solid player. I remember when they were recruiting him the reports touted (and JR did too) him as some incredible jump shooter. But that didn't really turnout to be his game. He was athletic, handled the ball well (he sometimes started at PG), rebounded, finished well and defended. H...

re: LSU at N. Carolina - Basketball 1984 Reynolds v. MJ duel - 29 points each - Manswers
It looks like Dean Smith turned him loose in this game. Jordan just dunked over us several times. A few plays he looks like the Chicago Bulls version of himself where he just effortlessly drives through a bunch of people, elevates and dunks over them....

re: LSU at N. Carolina - Basketball 1984 Reynolds v. MJ duel - 29 points each - Manswers
I can't remember if Tex Winter was on Brown's staff in 1986, but I can't help but wonder how much of an impact he had in developing the teams that went to the Final Four in 1986 and the Elite Eight in 1987. Except for John Williams, all of those guys were solid college players but none made it in th...

re: LSU at N. Carolina - Basketball 1984 Reynolds v. MJ duel - 29 points each - Manswers
Another cool thing about this team is that it was a blend of the 1981 and 1986 Final Four and the 1987 Elite Eight Teams - Mitchell, Tudor, and Jones (1981) with Redden, Taylor, A. Wilson, and a few others (1986), and N. Wilson (1987). Ironically, the star of the game, J. Reynolds, played on none o...

re: LSU at N. Carolina - Basketball 1984 Reynolds v. MJ duel - 29 points each - Manswers
I thought I'd remembered that but I noticed Smith finished the game and even shot the ball after that. They must not have realized the seriousness of the injury during the game. Jordan and Reynolds were just incredible in that game. LSU lost but they gave a great effort. I remember reading John W...

LSU at N. Carolina - Basketball 1984 Reynolds v. MJ duel - 29 points each - Manswers
https://youtu.be/XmH2_jJJlY0 A great effort but a loss by LSU at N. Carolina in 1984. This UNC team was sick - MJ along with Sam Perkins, Brad Daugherty, and Kenny Smith as well as very deep, talented and very big bench. This might be Jerry Reynolds best game ever. He put up 29 points against...

Any chance the Tigers could dress up the Cow Palace and play a few games a year there? That might be pretty cool - the atmosphere would probably be a little more electric with more of a full house....

[quote]Be careful how you speak of the house that Pete built. [/quote] Yes. The PMAC will always be a special place for me. The biggest problem is that it seats a lot of people and hasn't been near to capacity for years because of the inconsistent (and sometimes terrible) product put on the...

re: LSU v. Wake Forest 1979 Tangerine Bowl - Manswers
[quote] On the contrary, the 1980's were pretty good for LSU......certainly better than Mac's last six years. The Tigers went to two Sugar Bowls and an Orange Bowl during the 1980's.[/quote] That's how I remember feeling in the 1980s. Really only 2 bad years (both Stovall) which had immediate reb...
