Fargas maxed out at 4th place in the SEC w/ a couple Sweet 16s. She didn't come close to sustaining that. Most fault her recruiting. I guess that's fair. There were some high-profile in-state misses like (Kalani Brown, Moon Ursin to Baylor) but she did get Raigyne Moncrief out of Florida, Ayana Mitchell & Pointer (her neice) out of GA. Chloe Jackson was an impact transfer before also going to Baylor. After Fargas got the LA POY, the player hits the transfer portal after 2 years (Young). My biggest gripe was that the Fargas teams weren't better on offense. They over-relied on the defense. I'd be shocked if LSU got Kim Mulkey. Seriously, Pokey? I'm curious about Starkey who was at TA&M w/AD Woodward. But he didn't want the LSU gig after Pokey resigned.

Please people don't say it's Pokey time. I would love for her to be the WBB coach but remember why she was fired in the 1st place.

She sucked from day 1. Horrible results. She should have been fired 5 years ago. She has been stealing from LSU for 10 years. Most overpaid coach in LSU history.

we just posted a REDEMPTION video. Coincidence? In all seriousness, I for one would 100% be behind re-hiring Pokey.
