re: LSU v. Indiana 1981 Final Four - Manswers
Hard to say regarding substituting a senior Al Wood for FR MJ but if it is "any UNC MJ", I think I take MJ. I think Dean Smith's coaching style had a lot to do with holding back MJ. There was a great game in the mid-eighties between LSU and UNC at Chapel Hill. It became an MJ vs. Jerry Reynolds ...

re: LSU v. Indiana 1981 Final Four - Manswers
I agree that it showed that Brown was not in the same class of coaches as Knight, Crum, and Smith but I watched the 1981 championship game a few days ago and Indiana did roughly the same thing to North Carolina. Dean Smith-coached team with a better front line. Even game at half then IU goes on a ru...

re: With Brooks gone will they "unofficially retire" number 9? - Manswers
[quote]Honestly I think it’s A solid number to retire. [/quote] I've always liked the number 20. I miss that LSU football players can't wear it. Same with 23 in basketball. I wish we could simply retire the jersey rather than the number....

In the second half at about the one hour and one minute mark, Dick Enberg said "This is what happened to LSU on Saturday." About a minute or two later Billy Packer said something similar....

[quote]Scott Hastings?[/quote] That's probably him. My memory is too fuzzy and I don't recall watching the game, just reading about it at the time. Yesterday I wound up watching the 1981 final between Indiana and North Carolina. I was surprised to see almost the same dynamics in the game. The ...

[quote]I had never seen the game since it aired when I was a kid, and I made it through the whole thing. The collapse in the second half was so severe that they scored 9 points in 17 minutes of play. Never saw anything like it, and no wonder Dale called it the most bitter loss of his career.[/qu...

re: LSU v. Indiana 1981 Final Four - Manswers
I remember Greg Cook did not play in the Great Alaska Shootout. Some sort of disciplinary thing, I think. We had true FR, 6'7" Leonard Mitchell playing against a quality (future NBA) 6'11" Center for Arkansas (I don't recall his name). I don't remember the details of the game, but I'm sure that had ...

[quote]Was that the phone smash and garbage can throwing game by Knight? He also made a joke about our "freak" defense. frick that guy.[/quote] No, the phone slam was 1987. Indiana beat us in 1981. We were robbed by the refs in 1987. Knight should have been ejected, we should have gotten technica...

LSU v. Indiana 1981 Final Four - Manswers
We lost but it was a well played game early until the wheels came off. Watch about half of it. Ethan Martin had a great game against Isaiah Thomas. Macklin had a bad game against a much bigger Landon Turner (6'10"). Turner would have been an NBA great if he hadn't gotten paralyzed. Great, crisp v...

re: Moussa cisse is on commitment watch - Manswers
There's talent, experience, depth and flexibility with that team. Added to that, Wade is the best bench coach LSU has had in my lifetime. You don't even have Josh Gray in that list. Even that is impressive - a 6'11" guy that would have likely seen a fair amount of time this year as a rim protector i...
