re: LSU Basketball Lacks Talent - Tom Bronco
Not enough strong big men who can rebound and play interior defense. This has been the problem all year, If it wasn't for big athletic guards (Blakeney, Sampson and Mays) who get a lot more rebounds than most guards it would be much worse. Imagine two big guys taking care of business inside and Reat...

re: How much does a BB coach count? - Tom Bronco
Don't understand why the rest of you don't get the question. Since CJJ is a terrible XXO coach and game manager, etc. If he had been fired at the end of last season and you had gotten your upgrade coach whoever that is, how many more games would he win with the same players? I would add, does he mak...

Turnovers Killing LSU - Tom Bronco
With all the talk about LSU being such a terrible defensive team and tv announcers constantly saying we are a bad three point team, the worst problem is turnovers. We have had only one game without double digit turnovers and that was the first of the year against Wofford. The average turnovers per g...

re: Johnny Jones > John Brady > Dale Brown - Tom Bronco
I've posted the same thing about winning percentage but it has gone beyond that now. There is more than won/lost in having a program you can be proud of. We have gotten blown out of more games where the team just quit than any other time in LSU basketball history. We have seen CJJ's teams repeatedly...

re: Basketball: LSU 88, Missouri 77 | Final | Tigers Win! - Tom Bronco
[quote]Elbert is 9 feet tall and still cant make a fricking layup[/quote] What is worse is his teammates don't seem to know this and keep trying to feed him the ball. I saw Blakeney pass up a 12 foot jumper to pass him the ball so he could fumble it away. ...

What I Want in an LSU BBall coach - Tom Bronco
I won't put any names out there because I don't know who the best ones are. Oh I know some of the big names but they will never come here. So rather than a name here is my wish list of qualities I would like him to have. 1. A Smart Coach - Someone like Dave Aranda who is a student of the game and...

re: My LSU Basketball Fandom At All-Time Low - Tom Bronco
I hear you brother. It is tough to be an LSU basketball fan. There have been high spots for me to be sure but disappointment is always waiting around the corner. I haven't been able to see a live game for a long time but it is depressing watching on tv also. I have gotten to where I will record the ...

re: Why do LSU fans defend Fournette with such vigor? - Tom Bronco
[quote]There's a difference between posting about your players and what LSU fans have done with Fournette. [/quote]I'm going to go way out on a limb here and guess that you haven't heard everyone of the three or four hundred thousand LSU fans who are not just in Louisiana but in every state in the ...

re: LSU doesn't care about basketball - Tom Bronco
The idea that fans have any influence over big time college athletics is laughable. It doesn't matter if it is 18, 180 or 18,000. Now Boosters who contribute big money matter. The money in basketball is not in local attendance at the PMAC. It is television money which goes up by leaps and bounds...

re: Thoughts on the basketball game last night...good overall win - Tom Bronco
[quote]A common theme under Coach Jones has been lazy passing. Passes that are soft and telegraphed that result in a turnover. Drives me crazy. [/quote]Yes, this is a very valid criticism. I think that is one of the things holding this team back. We aren't crisp with our offense. It is not that we ...

re: Basketball: Charleston 65, LSU 75 | Final | Tigers Win! - Tom Bronco
The reason we let them get back in the game is twofold. Ball handling and decision making got very sloppy. Mays, Sims and Patterson were all guilty there. Secondly CJJ kept Reath on the bench for too long. Okay I will throw a third in there. Blakeney started trying to get his point average up for th...

re: Basketball Strength of Schedule - Tom Bronco
The SEC will take care of itself since we will play each of those schools and if we don't do well there the SOS or RPI won't really matter much. Indiana, UNLV, Syracuse, Michigan, etc. are teams that have won national championships and are considered contenders in basketball. You say the fact they h...

re: Fournette signs with Roc Nation! - Tom Bronco
I posted this on 12/6/16 when people complained about running Guice so many times against A&M and letting him break Leonard's rushing record. &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& It could be that Fournette had already hired an agent which meant we couldn't play him without violating the rules. But then agai...

[quote]Do you really think Houston is the 43rd best team in the country? Do you believe that Texas Southern is top 100?[/quote]What does that have to do with SOS and where are you getting that number from? SOS doesn't say how good a team is it just says how good the teams you have played are doing. ...

[quote]as Kentucky, Duke, etc.... you need a big name coach to bring in the big name players.[/quote]Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, North Carolina are the brand names of college basketball.
