[quote]I'm sorry. Sorry that Alvin is so fricking stupid that he gave guys that arent ready for the NBA like NAW and guys that won't be ready ever like Kenrich minutes over you. [/quote] Interesting thread to bump. I'd say that Kenrich turned out to be ready after all....

re: Rome ideas and suggestions - GOP_Tiger
Besides the normal big attractions (Colosseum, Forum, St. Peters, Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel, Trevi fountain, etc.), I really recommend going to one of the big aristocratic mansions that are now museums. I went to the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj, but the Galleria Borghese and Palazzo Colonna are ...

re: So who replaces Aranda? - GOP_Tiger
[quote]Why do people assume he wouldn’t coach the playoffs? That’s ridiculous [/quote] Early Signing Day is the 18th. If Aranda takes the UNLV job, then he has to spend the next eight days frantically trying to get players to sign. There's zero time for him to be at LSU's practices or work on a...

[quote]Yeah, Bo Pelini took the Nebraska job, but stayed and coached LSU's defense to a national title against Ohio State. [/quote] There wasn't an early signing day back then. If Aranda accepts the UNLV job, then he absolutely has to spend all next week frantically trying to put together a recr...

re: Recruiting implications of losing Aranda... - GOP_Tiger
[quote]You couldn’t wait one more week until esd or another month for the national championship?[/quote] Um, no. Other schools will have hired their coaches by then. [Edited to add] And Aranda needs this week at UNLV to desperately try to put together a recruiting class for his new school....

re: Recruiting implications of losing Aranda... - GOP_Tiger
[quote]With Arkansas, Ole Miss, SouthFlorida, Boston College and Colorado State open and Aranda chose UNLV to go after, I’m questioning his judgement or self confidence. I promise you if he had put his name out there, he would’ve gotten an interview from everyone of these places. Something stinks he...

re: Aranda to unlv could be sorted out in 24 hours - GOP_Tiger
[quote]You’re kidding right? He takes a head coaching job he’s gone as soon as the ink is dry.[/quote] That will tell the story. If Aranda and Coach O really still have a great relationship, then Aranda will stay through the playoffs. If Aranda doesn't stay, then you'll know that the relationsh...

re: Aranda to unlv could be sorted out in 24 hours - GOP_Tiger
Aranda's defense early in the season was "allow the offense to slowly matriculate the ball down the field" and "hope they make a mistake." With our quick-strike offense, it meant that our defense was on the field all game and dead tired by the end. It's why we always had teams scoring on us late. ...

re: Aranda sees the writing in the wall - GOP_Tiger
If Aranda is leaving, it's because he and O had substantial disagreements on defensive strategy this year. With a quick-score offense, we needed a defense that could get off the field. It needed to take chances. If you attack, you get off the field because you either * Get a turnover * Get a ...

re: Aranda to unlv could be sorted out in 24 hours - GOP_Tiger
If he takes that job, it's evidence that O wanted him gone. Which I don't think is at all crazy. I think it was evident early in the season that LSU needed to play a more attacking style of defense -- that it was a poor strategy to just keep everything in front of you, tackle, and wait for the o...

re: Genuine Questions for the Board - GOP_Tiger
The answer to both questions depends on the priority we put on winning this season. If we accept that player development is the main goal this season, and if we accept that we aren't making the playoffs, then we don't need to trade Lonzo or fire Gentry right now. Lonzo Ball is a crummy PG right ...

re: Pelicans 3 Point Percentage - GOP_Tiger
Lol no. Crewz was a complete dick to anyone who disagreed with him on anything. Most of us managed to hold our tongues because we liked his inside info (which he got from one of Demps's guys who's no longer around), but some here didn't enjoy his asshattery, told him so, and he decided to leave to...

Speculation on a Redick Trade - GOP_Tiger
[quote][Redick] will likely not be traded because he’s an important veteran presence on their young team. But multiple executives believe New Orleans could be convinced to trade him for a significant offer.[/quote] [link=(https://www.theringer.com/platform/amp/nba/2019/12/10/21004318/nba-trade-de...
