re: Kris Bryant to Leadoff for the Cubs in 2020 - Tiger Ugly
yeah, I guess it's worth a shot - his RISP numbers the last 3 years have been in a word, abysmal. Maybe being leadoff will get him back to working counts, he used to never swing at bad pitches and last couple of years he's expanded his zone considerably....

re: LSU vs Kentucky Tuesday Night: Stat Nerds Enter - Tiger Ugly
[quote]I don’t notice much but saw this as well. The ball doinks pretty hard off the rim, beyond the box out. Was this luck or somewhat by design (willingness to take 3s and wait around for potential long rebound)?[/quote] The one that was really killer was the Marlon Taylor block that bounced of...

re: LSU favored by 2 over Wildcats tomorrow - Tiger Ugly
[quote]If we play like we did Saturday, the Cats will stomp a nice p/g mudhole in us.[/quote] What if the Cats play as they did Saturday? A down to the wire home win vs. Ole Miss? Will they still stomp a mudhole in us. I mean what's worse....a win on the road vs. a net 38 team where it was a...

re: Why no minutes for cooper? - Tiger Ugly
From the small samples size I saw OOC, they did give him some minutes in a couple of competitive games, he was not ready for this level just yet. Not sure if he has improved in practice or what. ...

re: Darius Days impact of staying on the court - Tiger Ugly
Look no further than the rebound issues when he was out vs. Bama. Was moreso than anything the reason we lost, the offensive rebounds in that stretch killed us....

re: Dickie V calling the game Tuesday - Tiger Ugly
[quote]LISTEN TO THE TAPES[/quote] I found that very interesting, because he tweeted or said this several times. And the first time he was on with Jordy - he was asked if he heard the takes and he ignored the question and ranted on. Several weeks later when he was on again, he was asked again...

re: Why all the drama and fuss and crying over basketball? - Tiger Ugly
[quote] I haven’t been to a college baseball regular season game since we had a top 5 matchup with Florida in 2011 at the box.[/quote] I know these "who cares about basketball" posts are mostly trolls to incite reaction...and they obviously work. But I do think there is a segment of fans particu...

re: I'm a little worried if we don't win Tuesday. - Tiger Ugly
[quote]Team has peaked- could end up on tourney bubble the way they are playing now.[/quote] I think saying a team who just got a key player back has peaked is a bit short-sighted. Yes, the schedule is daunting, but I would say when Manning rounds back into shape we can certainly say we'll be ...

re: Will Wade needs serious questions asked to him - Tiger Ugly
[quote]I'm pretty sure Will Wade doesn't read the Rant. Maybe you should go to his radio show at L'auberge and ask him yourself. [/quote] I have no issues with questioning coaching strategies on forums such as this one. This is an LSU sports discussion board and should be considered as such, but...

re: Will Wade needs serious questions asked to him - Tiger Ugly
[quote]Auburn is decent, but they have a great coach that wins them a lot of games because of game planning and game adjustments. I get it that you love WW, but the reality is he's not a very good coach! [/quote] Auburn has every bit as much talent as us this year IMHO, and their great coach lost...

re: We will beat UK Tuesday - Tiger Ugly
The PMAC will be rocking which always upsets me a bit that we can't replicate that more often, but it is what it is. Bottom line, we take this one and we're back all even, but it's a big if. Need Days to stay on the floor and out of foul trouble and Manning to continue to progress in terms of ga...

re: Will Wade needs serious questions asked to him - Tiger Ugly
[quote]LSU shot a better percentage ovearall and from the three point line. BAMA won the game by making six more free throws. They got the home court advantage on calls today, some obvious some subtle like the foul call with .7 seconds left at the half giving BAMA a cheap two points. [/quote] ...

re: I’m going to be the one to say it - Tiger Ugly
[quote]Definitely a good coach but I wish he would had developed the bench earlier in the year. That may come to bite us down the stretch.[/quote] Yeah, one thing I would have liked to have seen is Bishop get a little PT. WW was playing him early - even in some of the more competitive OOC games ...

re: Winning the SEC Tournament in basketball is important to me - Tiger Ugly
Yep, part of the issue was Dale de-emphasized the SEC tourney fairly early on when it was re-instated in 1979. He would not put much into it unless he felt LSU needed to win some games to get in the dance. I did not agree with that but that was his stance. Still we had some good teams under Bra...
