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 ...

re: Ben Simmons has grown 2" since leaving LSU - Tom Bronco
[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. It is so obvious that there are games he plays hard (North ...

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 ...

re: Here's another guard Wade is after - Markel Crawford from Memphis... - Tom Bronco
You are right. My bad again. I was counting Blakeney. They still show him on the roster on the official page. But it still seems like Wade wants to sign two more guards so that means at least one other player will have to go unless he just can't sign another two. ...

re: Here's another guard Wade is after - Markel Crawford from Memphis... - Tom Bronco
We had a lot of players on the team last year with a "decent" stroke. They just didn't go in. That's asking a lot of a freshman who isn't one of the top 20 recruits in the country. If all these reports on this board are true and Wade is really scouting and offering that many guards out there, whe...

re: How do you see Brandon Sampson doing next season? - Tom Bronco
After being too optomistic with CJJ's teams I might be biased. He could be anywhere from riding pine because his defense doesn't improve, to melding that great physical gift he has with his mental ones and becoming a complete player who makes good decisions and hustles. Hope for the latter. S do ...

re: Antonio Blakeney to enter NBA Draft - Tom Bronco
I just hope his agent hasn't blown him a lot of smoke. His chances in the NBA draft are very slim. He is headed for the D League or Europe. Sure that will bring some money into his family but so would a degree for a lot longer time. Anyway, good luck Antonio. I know you played hard and always tried ...

re: I have more Will Wade/Basketball info (long) - Tom Bronco
This is a dubious post. Wade is at least 6'1 to6'3" tall and no way could be mistaken for 5'9". I know this by pulling up pictures on the Web of him next to his players and then seeing how tall the players were listed on the roster. He is taller than a guard listed at 6'1" and seemingly just a littl...

re: Antonio Blakeney - Tom Bronco
[quote] You have to have long athletic guards for the havoc pressing defense. We need depth, so the JUCO guard plus Alexander and Rachal will help with that and give good depth. We need another big though or we'll get killed again on the boards and post defense. [/quote]Agree we need as much dep...

re: Antonio Blakeney - Tom Bronco
Could someone give me a link for the JUCO guard we have offered? Likely force out/transfer candidates would be Patterson and Keiran. Patterson had worse year ever and shot terribly. Aussie kid never got a chance to show much although he was touted as a great shooter. ...

re: Former North Texas head coach Tony Benford is expected to join LSU as an assistant - Tom Bronco
Not a troll. I actually hope all of you that down voted and posted against me are right. I guess I am just tired of all the constant comparisons between new coaches and old coaches. If you noticed there were some posts that immediately did the comparison thing and said why are we hiring a guy that h...

re: Former North Texas head coach Tony Benford is expected to join LSU as an assistant - Tom Bronco
I am disappointed. I know nothing about this guy except that he is connected in a round about way with our out going coach. I just think that Wade would have been smarter to hire someone who couldn't be compared in anyway to CJJ and that would have brought a fresh outlook to the team. I also wonder ...

re: Anyone hear those hooves clacking? - Tom Bronco
I hope he can at least find one senior transfer or JUCO that is at least 6'8" and is a strong rebounder with a good work ethic on defense. Doesn't have to score a lot of points or any for that matter if he can come in and fill that role for us. My other hope is that Wade can make the team into an ef...
