re: Here's the next kid up for Wade, I'm told... - Tom Bronco
Here's hoping. He would be a terrific pickup this late in the season, espedially after we lost Alstork. This guy looks like the second coming of Josh Gray but with a much better shot. Let's hope if we do get him that we can integrate him into the playbook a lot better than we did with Josh. Of cours...

re: The team Will Wade is Building - Tom Bronco
[quote]We once started Hickey and Stringer. Together. Liked both guys and both MAYBE 5'10" [/quote] True and I agree they both had ability despite their size. Andre will always be one of my favorite LSU players. They were Trent recruits right? CJJ had them for one year together and then sent Hick...

re: Will Wade says 2-3 guys are teetering on if they "want to jump all in" - Tom Bronco
[quote]quote: Wade has said he likes Epps, Duop and Mays so the two or three he is talking about have to be among Sampson, Elbert, Patterson and Sims. Or Jenkins. He said he this before he announced he's leaving. [/quote]Not true. Jenkins announced on the 9th and Wade's quote was on the 12th....

[quote]Poor Elbert can't keep up with the intensity Wade demands. You could see that coming from the beginning [/quote]I'm afraid the same might be true of Branden Sampson as well. He is such a laid back guy I don't know if he can bring an all out attitude like Wade wants. Wade has said he likes Epp...

re: Branden Jenkins transferring... - Tom Bronco
You mean VCU not UAB. And yes they have been prominent the last 10 years but they are still a small school. There is a much bigger budget involved now and an SEC conference that has proved it can play basketball in the modern era. No matter what level of play, every coach has pressure to win. B...

re: Branden Jenkins transferring... - Tom Bronco
Hard to second guess a coach. I thought he had made a positive comment on Jenkins earlier but that might have been second hand. I can see where Coach Wade is coming from. Young, ambitious coach has just gotten his first major job and is under a lot of pressure to start winning right away. It seems n...

re: Will Wade offers another grad transfer - Tom Bronco
[quote]Do you think Hayward is more talented than the players Coach Wade has offered?[/quote]I don't think Hayward got enough playing time for us to judge that. When we were losing every game I was wishing CJJ would shake things up and start the bench and see if they were willing to play with effort...

re: CEO's Tenure at LSU - Tom Bronco
And people were shocked when we let McClendon go and he had been here 18 years. I am really getting sick and tired of this endless wanting to fire coaches without even giving them a chance. How many contracts can you buy out before even LSU football goes broke? As far as what is acceptable in a r...

re: Report -- LSU hoops lands transfer - Tom Bronco
You need to understand Will Wade to know what he is looking for in a player and he hasn't been around long enough for any of us to know that. I have read every interview with him I can find and I believe he said that he wasn't going to kick anyone off of the team but that if he worked them hard enou...

re: Report -- LSU hoops lands transfer - Tom Bronco
[quote] So who loses their schollie with the addition of Combs? [/quote]This is a total guess but I would say either Patterson or Hayward with an outside chance of it being Elbert Robinson. Patterson because he had a bad year and Mays and Daryl Edwards will get more playing time. Hayward looked li...

re: Report -- LSU hoops lands transfer - Tom Bronco
Well even if we don't have a great season to look forward to, although always optomistic until proven otherwise, it will be interesting just to see who gets the playing time. Will it be mostly the five new guys or will we see a lot of improvement in the returning players?...

re: Wade's Recruiting Class - Tom Bronco
[quote]Yeah, I've seen his name come up a few times as someone who could leave but I don't see it. He's a solid backup PG like you said and can be a good defender. Plus he'll be a senior on top of that.[/quote]Here are Patterson's stats from last season: Games played: 31 Rebounds/game: 3.0 ...

[quote]Pretty amazing (see: pathetic) the venom some LSU fans still show towards him even after it's been proven beyond a doubt that Jones was an atrocious head coach [/quote]I have a lot of time on my hands and rewatched a lot of games.

re: It sounds like Will Wade got Daryl Edwards... - Tom Bronco
I agree a full roster is always nice to have. However the fact is that most coaches only go 8, maybe 9, deep when they give out playing time. So when players get injured or kicked off the team it only matters if they are one of the studs, not one of the duds. Not a good idea to draft a marginal ...
