re: JaMarcus Russell...I mean Ben Simmons out for whole season - atltiger6487
[quote]Simmons had about as small of an impact on a college team that a #1 pick could have had. [/quote] absolutely correct. He had big stats, but they were hollow. Didn't lead to victories. ...

re: Would Geno Auriemma be a good hire? - atltiger6487
Why would he ever risk his legacy as the greatest women's bball coach of all time? He's on top of the women's game and will be as long as he's there. No need to rock that boat. ...

[quote]but let's face it, basketball was always in the shadow of football until Shaq came along. [/quote] I'd argue basketball was equal to football during at least part of the stretch from 1979-93. I was at LSU in the early-mid 80s, and the excitement and energy surrounding LSU basketball was as ...
