re: Aranda interview: "Still trying to get over the 4th quarter of the A&M game." - Tom Bronco
[quote]It's weird his comment on the HC is he's a great dline coach [/quote]Aranda eats, sleeps and dreams defense. Is it any wonder that the thing he most admires about a fellow coach is his knowledge of defense rather than say his recruiting or pr ability. He also does say several times how much h...

re: LSU basketball - What about Bob Marlin - Tom Bronco
So many wannabe AD's on this board. Of course very few of them can agree who our next coach should be. All of this of course before we ever fire the current one, LOL! ...

re: Will LSU ever really invest in a basketball coach? - Tom Bronco
There were several games last year where we were embarrassed but they weren't home games at the Assembly Center. To make sure I just looked at the schedule from last year. We lost to Wake Forest by 6 points. Oklahoma by 2, and Alabama by 9. Those were our only losses at home. None of them were...

re: Why did Guice get so many carries late against A&M? - Tom Bronco
[quote]It just feels like there is something more to this but we will probably never know. [/quote] It could be that Fournette had already hired an agent which meant we couldn't play him without violating the rules. But then again Fournette did say he was trying to get in good enough health to play ...

re: Why did Guice get so many carries late against A&M? - Tom Bronco
[quote]such a precious record i[/quote]I would imagine it is a lot more precious to you than Fournette. Records are made to be broken and as you point out Guice will beat it again next year (barring injuries). Which by the way is why they didn't run Leonard so much. He was injured all year you might...

re: Will LSU ever really invest in a basketball coach? - Tom Bronco
No I was just pointing out an inaccurate statement and suggesting it could be worse. I was an LSU basketball fan in Trent's 2nd. and 3rd. years. People tend to forget how bad it had gotten. Do I want better? You bet. Do you think the fans of the 9 or 10 SEC teams that had a worse record want bet...

re: Will LSU ever really invest in a basketball coach? - Tom Bronco
[quote]Until he is gone, LSU will be a bottom-dweller in arguably the easiest of the Power 5 conferences. [/quote]It might help if you got your facts straight before you start becoming a basketball prophet. Here is Jones SEC record year by year: 2012-13 9-9 SEC 8th place out of 14 teams 2...

re: Will LSU ever really invest in a basketball coach? - Tom Bronco
You know what is really sad? That LSU sports are now more about the coach than the team. Our basketball TEAM is now 5-2 and is coming off of their best game of the year. But all of you negative idiots are so focused on changing coaches that you don't even follow or support our team. It is not just...

Man do you have a short memory! It was Les that pulled him and put Etling in his place. I would think neither one of them wants anything to do with the other....

re: Does LSU Crank Up Three Pointers? - Tom Bronco
[quote]When we or most other teams take open 3's or 3's that come as part of offensive set (screen or dribble drive and kick out for example), the percentages go up. Our problem in some cases are forced 3's, off balance shots, or off rhythm shots. We have capable long range shooters, but we need to ...

re: Does LSU Crank Up Three Pointers? - Tom Bronco
[quote]Blakeney has jacked up bad three's this year. It's why his % is so low right now. Most of our other players haven't been forcing shots and their % show that. [/quote]You are right. It is a very strange thing but it is our big men, at least percentage wise, that are best 3 point shooters. Epps...

Does LSU Crank Up Three Pointers? - Tom Bronco
In a lot of the messages in basketball threads, you often see criticism of CJJ's teams that they don't run offense plays and just pass it around the perimeter and jack up three's. Is that true in the games this year's team has played? Well the stats will tell the truth of it. We have taken 427 t...

re: Jonny J has these boys playing great basketball - Tom Bronco
I follow the basketball team and college basketball in general. This was a great quality win for LSU against a good team. Houston was 6-0 and had won their Holiday tournament. Houston has two of the best guards around and we shut them down. The defense was awesome. We got a hand on just about ev...

LSU Press Conference - Tom Bronco
Orgeron says he is confident that Aranda will stay and be a part of his staff. He will get the best OC he can and has two candidates in mind. We will play a spread offense with a dual threat quarterback. Need to improve recruiting and Louisiana will always be first and the I-10 corridor second. ...

re: In defense of alleva. In an article a few minutes ago - Tom Bronco
Herman was Texas first choice and Texas was Herman's first choice. Herman was a graduate assistant at TX under Mac Brown and got his Master's from there. All of his other jobs were in the state of TX and The University of Texas is the flagship job in the state despite the las five years. Herman'...

re: What About Major Applewhite...................? - Tom Bronco
Applewhite left Texas in a scandal because he slept with a woman basketball coach. They won't take him back. I would think he is likely the new head coach at Houston. Although he went to high school in Baton Rouge, his parents were from Alabama and he grew up an Alabama fan. He was named after an Al...

re: If you know you got O, why.. - Tom Bronco
Well let's see. He has been looking for a coach from the time he fired Miles. That's more than two months which is not a rush decision. There were two guys we really wanted, Fisher and Herman. Fisher has reportedly given Aleva outrageous demands to take the job which is why it fell through last year...
