LSU athletic director Joe Alleva joined “Your Morning Drive” on 104.5/104.9 FM ESPN in Baton Rouge on Friday and spoke briefly about the LSU Basketball and the teams chances of making the NCAA Tournament this year. Per The Advocate:
quote:

“This is my fifth year on the committee, so I have a lot of experience doing this. As of yesterday, LSU’s RPI was 82. There has never been a team picked in the tournament at-large with an RPI over 80,” Alleva said. “As of right now, I don’t think (the chances are) very good.

“In other words, we need to win a lot of games. We can’t afford to lose many more games going forward.”
The Tigers (16-10, 9-4 SEC) travel to Knoxville to face Tennessee (12-14, 5-8 SEC) on Saturday in one of many must win games remaining on the Tigers schedule.

The last superstar in a while? He was going to be the last superstar in a while regardless. He didn't come to lsu because it's "LSU". He came to lsu because his godfather works there.

Johnny Jones is. Good recruiter, but that will quickly fade if the #1 prospect misses the NCAA. Ben will be the last superstar in a while if this happens. Damn shame.

the obvious question that should have been put to Alleva is: what if we don't make the tourney, what is Jones' status?
