re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
[quote]I said she was overpaid when we hired her, and I have been proven correct. What she has delivered are not $750K results. We could have found 20 coaches who'd have taken the job for much less, and produced similar results.[/quote] She's not paid based on her results at LSU. She's paid accor...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
Man please......................you're one of the main folks that come on here and have SEEN the salary comparisons. If you want to see them go to google and find them yourself. What.........................? You actually think she was overpaid at the time of her signing? Puh-leeze. :rolleyes: If...

re: "Not only is LSU not a top 5 team next season, they're not top 20 (football)" - lsualum96
[quote]Where did we finish ranked? 20 something right? LSU finally returned key players.. They have the most experience returning. More favorable schedule. LSU upgraded their DC tremendously. They key core of the team will be juniors. Signed the #3 class and addressed needs. ...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
Nope. Not gonna do that. Know why..................? Because it's been done on this board ad nauseum. Suffice it to say, the $750k/year that she was signed for was what you needed to pay to get a coach to take you back to final four level. So, the fact that it hasn't worked out is unfortunate. Bu...

"Not only is LSU not a top 5 team next season, they're not top 20 (football)" - lsualum96
Not that I rely on Bleacher Report for all of my football news..................but what in the world is up with Barrett Salee? He is CONSTANTLY berating the program. In this video, he says that not only is LSU not a top 5 team next season they're not even TOP TWENTY. Huh?!!!!! :rolleyes: [link=(...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
[quote]Do we currently have a top 15 program? Cause thats where she is in terms of compensation compared to the rest of the country.[/quote] She's not being paid according to whether we have a top 15 program. She's paid based upon her MARKET VALUE. Now, if they re-sign her at the end of her contr...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
[quote]Listen, I may have exaggerated on finishing at the bottom of the league every year but all of my points about the program have been valid. Nikki was hired to get this program back to the level it was at under Pokey. That level was SEC Championships and Final Fours. That is what was expected b...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
[quote]Absolutely you can downgrade the "success" she has had. If you don't think we advanced that far in large part due to having a home court advantage then I don't know what to tell you. Nikki Caldwell in the NCAA tournament is pretty simple to me, she is 5-1 in games played in the PMAC and she i...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
[quote]To the people who said Nikki had some good seasons, when were those seasons? She has never finished better than 4th in the conference. She went to the sweet sixteen twice, but only because women's basketball is a joke and they let 11 seeds host regionals. This is a program that went to five s...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
[quote]The LSU administration wouldn't have enough balls to hire Pokey back really thinking about it. I think they are afraid of the image of what was thought of her when she left. I would kill to have Pokey back.[/quote] Are you serious...................? :rolleyes: You think Nikki is having...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
[quote]The money doesn't matter to me, she turned UCLA around quickly into a top ten team. She was one of the hottest new coaches in the country. Now, she did do well her first couple season here. She had a lot of talent to work with and molded them well. Now the last two year have been all of h...

re: Lady Tigers basketball - lsualum96
[quote]In defense of the bring back Pokey crowd, this is a reasonable option. There are no major coaches that are going to make the switch to come to LSU. Why take another chance on another Nikki Caldwell? You have a proven commodity in Pokey Chatman. Regarding the relationship with a player, I h...

re: Brandon Harris/Dak Prescott Soph. Stats - lsualum96
This seems obvious. What I don't understand is all the people on this board who believe that there's no chance that a true sophomore, who was a first time starter, won't be better in his junior year. I fully expect him to be better. The question becomes will that be enough to get us back in the S...

re: Women's basketball only had 7 players on the roster today - lsualum96
Exactly! If that weren't the case then shouldn't we expect one of Pat Summit's assistants to bring us a championship?.........................Which is what Nikki is. She was on the bench as an assistant for UT's last three NCAA championships. The bottom line being, you don't necessarily want a champ...
