re: LSU, not Duke or Kentucky, will have college basketball's best freshman class - bigcatfish on 4/20/15 at 9:25 pm
I agree we have a strong class. I heard Lee Feinswog on the radio with Hanagriff today and they were talking about how next season the crowds will be huge and electric like when Chris Jackson and Shaquille O'neal played. We are not near that level yet. We do not have a dominate big man for next yea...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Time to Step Up Against Youth Sport Specialization - bigcatfish on 3/11/15 at 6:12 am
It is never going to happen. As long as colleges can go out and watch the kids on the summer circuit it will not change. The colleges will not stop. Take basketball for example. Nike and Adidas have major AAU basketball teams that travel all over the country in the summer. If the colleges stop recru...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Public School Parents - bigcatfish on 2/21/15 at 9:14 am
If a student takes a dual enrollment class and passes it, they get 110 points towards the calculation of the school SPS. Dual enrollment is basically taking college classes in high school. A student knows where they are in relation to pass/fail all semester. If a student takes an AP class and pass...

As someone who works in the public school system I agree. It is all about the test scores. The only thing the supervisors are worried about are SPS scores. The bad thing is what improves your SPS is not necessarily best for the kids. The supervisors tell you they agree with you but then they say "...

re: The team did everything right except for one thing. - bigcatfish on 2/10/15 at 9:15 pm
When UK got the tech, I assume LSU put their best free throw shooter on the line. If that is the case, they said Hornsby is a 76% free throw shooter. In my opinion, that is pretty weak. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: On the eve of the LHSAA Convention, what would you do regarding the split? - bigcatfish on 1/31/15 at 9:07 am
I never said all of them are doing it. Yes they do take lower academic students if they are good athletes. I have had experience with private schools. The ones I have had experience with do recruit and it is not a level playing field. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

They do not play by the same set of rules. Private schools do not have to accept students if they do not want to. Therefore, they can control their enrollment numbers and they can control their classification. The private schools do not have to give their students the EOC tests like public schools. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Ben Simmons Game #2 (Montverde vs Karr) - bigcatfish on 1/8/15 at 10:45 pm
I was at the game also. He is good, real good. I think his overall basketball skills are just as good as Lebron's when he came out. With that said, Lebron was a superior athlete. I am not one that bleeds purple and gold, but this kid is the real deal as far as skills go. ...
