re: Hoops: LSU lands Oregon transfer Kavell Bigby-Williams - Boom!!!! - Manswers on 6/20/17 at 2:58 pm
This is a great addition. We have an experienced, tall, athletic big (played in the Final Four) in 2018. Kiir would have been our only returning big. He will also create momentum to bring in high school bigs for next year. Wade is doing such a great job....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]This one hurts, but you know it's because there's better guys ahead of him, but why couldn't he wait his turn?[/quote] This. If he wants to play "now" the transfer makes no sense because he will have to sit out a year. Does he really believe he won't be a starter in 2018?

re: QB Battle - Manswers on 4/24/17 at 1:31 pm
The only reason that Coach O is saying this is because Etling had a poor performance in the spring game against the D's ones and wants someone to emerge and be a game-changer (Mettenberger level). There is no one on the roster right now that is likely to be that player. McMillan and Scott are untest...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Wade's Recruiting Class - Manswers on 4/20/17 at 12:30 pm
Understood. But even if he got out of prison two years ago I think it is highly unlikely that he would demonstrate the leadership, focus, and self-sacrifice necessary to make the team better. Another thing, if he does assault someone (especially a woman) as an LSU student under scholarship, what wou...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Wade's Recruiting Class - Manswers on 4/20/17 at 8:50 am
No, we shouldn't go after this guy. The team needs to have a higher bar than going after guys that have served a jail sentence for a violent crime and hoping that he "may" have learned his lesson to not commit violent crimes again. Would you be happy if your boss hired someone like that to work with...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Daryl Edwards just committed to LSU - Manswers on 4/19/17 at 11:07 am
With that starting lineup I'm concerned that we're too weak down low and no one will effectively protect the rim. Kiir may be a tad light but I have to believe he's more hard-nosed than Epps. I see Epps as a scorer off the bench. He just seems to soft to play D against capable bigs....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Daryl Edwards just committed to LSU - Manswers on 4/19/17 at 10:12 am
I really like this pickup. A 6'4" guard who shot 47% from 3pt. and can play PG if needed. I liked his comments in his interview as well. He sounds like he is focused and is a hard worker....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: It sounds like Will Wade got Daryl Edwards... - Manswers on 4/18/17 at 2:26 pm
With how poor our interior defense has been (really since Mickey left) I never understood why Jones didn't just tell Malone or Robinson to just make sure people don't score. Err on the side of fouling a guy. At least that would have spelled the few quality bigs we had. You could do the same with a J...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Mayan Kiir 3* PF to sign with LSU - Manswers on 4/18/17 at 2:06 pm
He's a strong addition. He address's the teams most glaring need - low post presence. He's described as a "high energy" big who is a "relentless rebounder". He's also 6'9" or 6'10" about 220 to 225 depending the descriptions. ESPN also has him as their no. 95 prospect. I will gladly take him and ano...

This is a huge get. Honestly, he may be the ideal first recruit for Wade. Kiir is described as a strong, "high energy" big man who is a "relentless rebounder" and plays good D. He'll play a lot next year, possibly even start as there's no one currently who defends the rim effectively. He also is ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

That scouting report describes Kiir as the exact guy we need to address our most glaring weakness - low post presence. His strongest attributes are that he is a "high energy" guy and a "relentless" rebounder": "Kiir will play right away for LSU and give them the physical, high energy presence the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
