Horsemeat is right. A coach doesn't even get a chance to build a team anymore. One or two years and the better players are gone and you are left with the dregs and new recruits.

LSU is a good team people. Alabama is just playing insanely hot right now. LSU could've won had Ben Simmons hit his free throws at the end of the game. Think I watched him miss 4 in a row and maybe 5 of his last 7.

That and Obashahan is one of the most improved players in the country. He was the best player on the court last night (Sorry Ben Simmons, last night, he was).

How are we not better? Simmons, Quarterman, Hornsby, Victor.... How is that team not in the top 20?

And there it is again......
BAD free throw %......
Said it before and will say it again, most winning team have a 75-80% FT stat.
LSU near the bottom of the conference (66%).
Can't win the big games if you can't shoot FT.

This was hard to watch. You knew what was coming.No discipline; no rebounds, no free throws, no coaching.

Not a tournament team - put them together for another year and they'd destroy the SEC and make a huge run in 2017, but that's not the nature of the beast now.

Really disappointing loss. Far too many missed free throws and a lack of intensity. Lucky if we play in the NIT.
