re: Jamal Adams Scouting Report - Alt26
[quote]WEAKNESSES[/quote] I think if there were any weaknesses it was that he sometimes gambled a bit trying to make a big play instead of just the "solid" play. That said, you NEVER had to question his effort or desire. I'd much rather have a guy who makes a mistake here and there but is alway...

re: What do you guys feel about Eric Musselmen? - Alt26
[quote]He was brought here to be a defensive specialist coach on the bench. He failed miserably. He is living off his fathers name and no where as good as hid father was.[/quote] Actually his one season here was the one season LSU wasn't inept on defense. They ranked 32nd on Kenpom that season (...

re: What do you guys feel about Eric Musselmen? - Alt26
He obviously knows how to teach the game. I'd be a bit worried about recruiting and the fact that he is the definition of a "journeyman." He's been all over the place. If he had even just a little bit of success at LSU it's likely that he may leave ASAP. I'm not saying LSU needs a "one of us" hi...

I hope this is a troll. You ordered at large pizza with about 8 different toppings, downed 1/2 to 3/4 of it in a span of 20 minutes and are somehow surprised it made you feel bad soon after? ...

re: LSU should be a perennial basketball power - Alt26
[quote]Last 30 years of LSU basketball: 1 Final Four and 1 Sweet 16. Only 6 NCAA tournament berths in the last 24 years. 1 NCAA tournament win in the last 11 years. "Perennial Power" is not in the DNA of this program at the moment. No matter who is coaching next year, it will be an uphil...

re: Johnny Jones needs to do the honorable thing - Alt26
[quote]This is my biggest fear. It would be the easy hire to do this, A Stansbury or Kermit. And the easy hire has been his M.O. lately. And for me either is settling, I'd prefer Kermit of the two but we'd better get a no from 10 others before we get to either IMHO.[/quote] Both would be bett...

re: Saltgrass steakhouse coming to old Coyote Blues location off Acadian - Alt26
[quote]It is a damn shame Coyote closed however, as it was hands down the best restaurant Baton Rouge had to offer.[/quote] I think "best restaurant in BR" is a bit strong, but in a town where it seems like every other new restaurant is a Mexican joint, at least Coyote Blues differentiated itsel...

re: Women's Basketball Costs - Alt26
[quote]How can UCONN be losing that much money? I thought they had great attendance and frequent sellouts. No one expects most women's basketball programs to make money but if UCONN is losing money someone is doing something wrong there.[/quote] Cost vs. income The highest price women's ticke...

re: Women's Basketball Costs - Alt26
It's simple supply and demand. Significantly more people (both men and women) would rather watch men's sports than women's. That's not being sexist. That's just being honest. Because women's sports aren't in high demand, a school can't really generate a high revenue stream. There's only s...

re: What can we do about women's sports losing 17 million last year? - Alt26
Don't pay $800k for a women's basketball coach. I get that is Caldwell is not the highest paid coach in the SEC, but paying $800k is just a poor return on investment. Unlike Men's BB, it makes more fiscal sense to go with a cheap up and comer hire in Women's BB. It's not sexist to say that wo...

[quote]It's Matt McCall from UT Chattanooga[/quote] I'm not quite sure why people are so high on him. He stepped into a good foundation built by Will Wade, who left for VCU when Smart went to Texas. If McCall is a candidate, why not go after Will Wade? Wade is actually younger than McCall A...

re: Jimmy Ott says there is a coach strongly interested in the BB job. - Alt26
Billy Donovan!!!!! He's pulling a Saban and realizing he's better suited for the college game instead of the NBA. Also, with the Pelican's trade, OKC just got pushed down in the Western Conf. pecking order. Billy wants back in the SEC!! (obviously the above is just pure conjecture and wishfu...

re: Mark Few - Alt26
Why not?!! Who wouldn't want to leave a school ranked #1 and a likely #1 seed in the NCAA, and also located in a beautiful part of the country to come down and rebuild at LSU. I'd love for it to happen, but Mark Few doesn't need LSU...

re: Basketball Coach Candidates - Alt26
[quote]Kevin Keatts[/quote] I think he would definitely recruit well, and he has done an outstanding job at UNCW in his first (nearly) 3 years. The two things that would give me just a bit of concern are: 1. His history as a college coach is pretty limited. Doing well at a CAA school doesn'...

re: Basketball Coach Candidates - Alt26
[quote]Not very enthused, but he recruits this region extremely well, and someone is needed to reverse course immediately and he has the experience to do that. Not my first choice, but he would probably be the kind of guy Alleva would go after, as we saw with football, young up and coming coaches do...
