re: Longtime WBB Coach Tasha Butts leaves LSU for Georgia Tech job - ToneyBengals
Fargas was always gonna be on the hot seat TY. Alleva had given her an extension LY without a raise. Now, with a new AD her chair just got warmer. She had those Sweet 16s early on, but things have gotten progressively worse since. Her teams always guard like hell, but they don’t ever seem to score ...

re: How did we not get Corey Davis? - ToneyBengals
I don't know that he had a LSU offer out of HS either. He had to go the JUCO route and became an All American at San Jacinto. Wade/LSU was too late with an offer to get him. LSU got Waters so it's a moot point I think....

re: So Alleva suspends Wade, but allows Fargas another year? - ToneyBengals
[quote]We can support Wade without being intellectually dishonest. I, for one, hope there is a way for him to return.[/quote] Ditto, but I don't think there is a way. Since he can't (won't) explain himself to his boss LSU shouldn't wait to see how this shakes out. I thought they should've fired h...

re: Am I the only one that isn’t interested in watching a Tony Benford coach basketball team? - ToneyBengals
[quote]I’ve already seen this brand of basketball with JJ for far too long and I just cannot support it. Uninspired, lazy undisciplined. Its just hard to stomach the regression after having a perfectionist at head coach and being so close to relevancy again. Definitely puts a huge dark cloud over th...

re: Wade's done...Who's next? - ToneyBengals
I’ve been thinking about this since I don’t think LSU should wait for Will Wade. Steve Prohm, Iowa St...He’s 44, a Georgia native & ‘Bama grad who has 3 stops in LA on his resume. He started as a volunteer asst to Billy Kennedy at Centenary. He followed Kennedy to SLU & also had a stint at Tulane...

re: Smart and Williams ranking - ToneyBengals
Waters Mays Sampson Williams Reid Just my hunch. The two 5-star forwards will start with a veteran backcourt. Coach Wade plays 2 point guards historically, so there will be a consistent 20-25 minutes for Smart in rotation with Waters and Mays. Wade says he did a bad job with Sampson after he ...

We owe it all to Coach Wade. And the SEC Network. [link=(http://usatodayhss.com/2017/tremont-waters-lsu-basketball-will-wade)]LINK[/link]...

re: In hindsight, was signing Ben Simmons the downfall of CJJ? - ToneyBengals
The error was giving Ben Simmons carte Blanche. The Showtime Crew following him off the court. On the court, not anchoring his arse on the post to play thru him that way instead of him floating around on the perimeter. If he grabbed a defensive rebound and pushed in transition that was fine. But he'...

re: If it's Crean or Wade... - ToneyBengals
How long-term are you thinking? Crean is only 50. He could be at LSU 20 years. Wade is younger, but I think that makes him a riskier hire than Crean. Wade - 4 years total as HC at UT-Chatanooga/VCU (2 NCAAs) Crean - 18 years as HC at Marquette/Indiana (10 NCAAs/3 Sweet 16s/1 Final 4) If C...

re: If it's Crean or Wade... - ToneyBengals
If it's Crean vs Wade, then it's Crean hands down. Make him the 2nd highest paid coach in the SEC. It would be the biggest no doubt hire Alleva has made. ...

re: If it's Crean or Wade... - ToneyBengals
Dan Dakich (former Knight asst) was on ESPN Radio last week and referenced Crean going 0-5. Apparently he was talking about The last 5 Indiana Mr. Basketball, but you can't just criticize Crean. Hell, Only Caleb Swanigan (Purdue) stayed in state. Crean did sign some kid in 2009, Zeller in 2011 and F...

re: Alleva is a liability - ToneyBengals
Alleva has made some mistakes, but the criticism is over the top. His boss overruled his firing of Les Miles. When Alleva was able to fire Miles he did. This time, his first choice Jimbo wasn't doing the dance. #2 Hermann wanted the Texas job. Alleva only turned to Orgeron - his 3rd choice, because ...

re: Kermit Davis could be the Choice - ToneyBengals
Hopefully, Alleva is just waiting to offer Prohm a deal not Davis. I really like how Missouri and NC State identified their guy, offered him and got him. I had hoped Buzz Williams was a possibility but no rumor on him....
