re: Thoughts on John Brady as an assistant under Wade - Tom Bronco
[quote]Does Brady still have recruiting ties? I would guess not. Is Brady still willing to work hard? I would guess not again. So my answer is no thanks.[/quote]This! Plus his personality would be to want to be boss again. A resounding no!...

re: Define Success for Will Wade's Tigers Next Season - Tom Bronco
Coleman was already signed by Trent Jones. The fact that very few realized how good he was has nothing to do with the fact that he was good and did produce. Most players show a big jump in play after their freshman year and JOB was a good example. Carmouche was the big difference maker that year and...

re: Define Success for Will Wade's Tigers Next Season - Tom Bronco
[quote]Jones won 19 his first year with nothing Wade can surpass that.[/quote]He had JOB a future NBA player, Coleman who was underrated and a great player for his size. Three competent guards in Hickey, Cartouche and Stringer. He had the famous Tuba to give him 10 minutes. The problem was the bench...

re: Define Success for Will Wade's Tigers Next Season - Tom Bronco
[quote]possible 4 top100 recruits,[/quote]What are you talking about? You expect Wade can bring 4 top 100 players with him? We don't even have that many open scholarships unless someone transfers. We have two seniors who graduated and CJJ has already signed two who say they are still coming. Victor ...

re: In hindsight, was signing Ben Simmons the downfall of CJJ? - Tom Bronco
No, his downfall was in not signing better players to play with Simmons. We desperately (still do) needed a post player that Simmons could feed from the top of the key. Robinson, Epps and even Victor did not provide this. So Simmons was forced to post up sometimes as our best player to do that and h...

re: Define Success for Will Wade's Tigers Next Season - Tom Bronco
So many variables at this point how could you possibly know that? Recruiting, transfers, other staff, etc. But right off the top of my head if he gets us back to break even in conference I would be happy. ...

re: Wade Update - Tom Bronco
[quote]If you knew anything you'd know that at lower level schools you can use gimmicks and tricks to get by.[/quote]Care to actually tell us what some of these gimmicks and tricks are? First I heard of it. I always thought you had to out recruit and out score the other team. That is the only kind o...

re: Our fans complete overvalue our Program (Crean related) - Tom Bronco
[quote]Did you not get the point I was making? there are no schools of relevance inside of a 5 hour drive of LSU. NONE. 5-6 hours away are a few schools no better than LSU, like A&M, Ole Piss, MSU, Bama, Auburn. Indiana has at least 7 schools within 2 hours of them that are basketball schools. A...

re: Our fans complete overvalue our Program (Crean related) - Tom Bronco
[quote]There's LSU and then no one else of relevance within a 5 to 6 hour drive of Baton Rouge, and those schools of relevance aren't even that relevant. [/quote]Have to disagree. There is A&M and Houston to the west. Arkansas to the north and Memphis, Ole Miss and Miss. State to the East. You may...

re: Our fans complete overvalue our Program (Crean related) - Tom Bronco
[quote]1- He'll be competing in a weaker conference. 2- He'll be in an athletic department that makes much more money overall, although there's no telling how much of that would be spent on basketball. 3- He won't have to worry about getting fired for producing the results he did at IU. [/quot...

re: No to Musselman - Tom Bronco
Well you see to run a post game you actually have to have a post player. Last time I looked over the roster, the only post player we had was Robinson. Nuff said?...

re: Mussleman down 13 at the half. What are the chances Alleva calls during the break? - Tom Bronco
The Cal Berkeley board was doing the exact same thing saying they didn't want Musselman because his team looked bad losing to Iowa. ...

re: No news, rumors, ideas, "inside reports" about Basketball coach search? - Tom Bronco
I have read that Aleva doesn't want to pay more than $1 million buyout to get a coach which pretty much eleminates any but small school coaches.Musselman, Kermit Davis and Pitino's kid are mentioned quite a bit. Musselman is a West Coast guy and maybe waiting for a shot at the Berkley job. Davis see...

re: Tom Crean just got fired - Tom Bronco
[quote]I'm told by some boosters that the biggest problem on the recruit end and even play end are Collis Temple and his charges. Any coach HAS to kiss Collis' ring because he controls a lot of the AAU in Louisiana[/quote]What kind of recruits did that get us the last two years? Johnny already had a...

re: How much do you think Alleva will spend on a Men's Bball coach - Tom Bronco
I think the question is do you want another coach who makes a lot of money with a big buyout on a long term contract. I would rather have an up and comer from a small school with a low buyout and most of his money in incentives based on games won and tournaments played in. I know a lot of people...

re: Will Antonio Blakeney stay another year? - Tom Bronco
[quote] I don't know how you can essentially bash Davis as having a marginal career and praise Temple. Temple worked hard and finally made it, which is great, but if Davis' career is marginal so is Temple's. Davis has more games played, more minutes per game and was a solid contributor on multiple ...

re: Will Antonio Blakeney stay another year? - Tom Bronco
[quote]Temple is a defensive demon that is 6'6. Blakeney might be 6'2, might be. They are nothing alike. Temple played one of the greatest games in LSU history and locked down one of the top players in the nation (Reddick in the tournament). Plus wasn't Temple an excellent student and got two degree...
