re: Vegas thinks we go 7-5. Thoughts? - Tom Bronco
[quote]Over a 70% win pctg and 3 national championships in 20 years. I'd say we don't.[/quote]And everyone of those 20 years the pre-season hype was we should win a national championship because we had so much "talent". Did it ever occur to you that other teams have lots of talent also? In fact neve...

Yes, he will go down in history as the only quarterback to try a behind the back pass. ...

re: Vegas thinks we go 7-5. Thoughts? - Tom Bronco
[quote]Too much talent.[/quote]Here we go again. Some things never change. Hey, we might surprise everyone, me included, and win 9 games. The 7 seems more realistic. We always overrate our talent. This year we have had to go to the transfer portal just to be able to field a team. Our defensive back ...

re: Walker Howard gives Myles Brennan the harsh truth - Tom Bronco
I stand corrected. So it was Orgeron who didn't play him. It was still because it was Les's old run first offense where the quarterback was supposed to be a game manager and not a passer. ...

re: Walker Howard gives Myles Brennan the harsh truth - Tom Bronco
[quote]But isn't it curious that he's been here since Rutherford B. Hayes was president, and has never quite SEIZED the job? [/quote]Wow, what an incomplete and totally unfounded statement. The OC wanted to start him his freshman year and was excited about his passing ability but he was vetoed by th...

What is even more remarkable is that he played with congenital heart disease his whole career but didn't have a heart attack until he was playing a relaxed pickup game after he retired. ...

re: College Hoops Today - Matt McMahon Interview - Tom Bronco
I think the most telling remark was when he said that he didn't believe in judging players by the number of stars they had by their name and that everyone had to prove their ability. I think given the number of talented players he has recruited and how desperate some of them are going to be to get p...

re: I still love Will Wade - Tom Bronco
Very nice summary of everything that has gone down. In my eyes the Johnny Jones era was over when we blew that huge lead to North Carolina in the NCAA Tourney. That one was beyond painful. The Ben Simmons fiasco made us the laughing stock of college sports. Having a brash, aggressive young coach in ...

re: If you had a time machine, would you prevent LSU from hiring coach O? - Tom Bronco
What really bugs me is not that we hired O but that once he proved his incompetence to build a long lasting program, we let him coach as a lame duck and then gave him 17 million. Woodward could have refused to pay because of the sexual scandal under his leadership. I thought he mailed it in as a coa...

re: Inside Matt McMahon's Quick Rebuild of LSU Basketball - Tom Bronco
It's tough when you put together a good team but can't play them all. Wade really didn't like more than a 7 man rotation toward the end of the season. I think McMahon is going to have to go 8 or 9 deep to keep players happy. The other factor is can certain players separate themselves from the others...

re: Nick's Real Concern - Tom Bronco
And I think yours was a well thought out reply also. We obviously will never agree on some things so I will just leave you with this one thought. No system works that is inhabited by corrupt people with no ethics or integrity. Unfortunately that is not just college football but everywhere I look. So...

re: Nick's Real Concern - Tom Bronco
[quote]The schools are raking in the cash!! If so, then why do most all say their AD is losing money?? All that equipment and travel costs $$$. And don’t argue Title IX blah blah. That’s here to stay. Losing $$ in sports is the cost of doing business in the college world. So don’t give me the wealth...

re: Nick's Real Concern - Tom Bronco
While you were studying in air conditioned comfort in the Library those guys were doing two a days in terrible heat and humidity. Yeah the facilities are great but can you seriously say that the total monetary benefit of all the things you said come close to the millions the coaches and school are t...

re: Which SEC Basketball School Had the Biggest Roster Turnover in 2022? - Tom Bronco
Kind of hard to judge when they haven't played a game yet. So many fans forget the games aren't played on paper. The recruiting stars, pre-season polls, accolades from sportscasters and fans don't mean a thing when they start to play the games. All of this potential has to transform into reality and...

re: Darius Days gets invite to NBA Combine - Tom Bronco
[quote]Hopefully he can take a similar route to Skylar Mays. 4 year college player that works his way on to an NBA roster. No one played harder and was more efficient than Days in the Wade tenure [/quote]Was Days able to graduate? Reading this it occurred to me that the only starter that I can reme...

re: LSU Basketball is only missing one element on its roster... - Tom Bronco
I looked at the stats again and there seems to be a real discrepancy between the stats you are quoting and what the LSUsports.net page says. You say that Mwani shot 42.9 on threes out of conference and 44.1 in conference. Yet the official stats say that for the season he shot 25/62 for 40.3. There a...

re: LSU Basketball is only missing one element on its roster... - Tom Bronco
[quote] Will be valuable because all of your guards are 6’3” & shorter. Will have to be available to defend prototypical SG & longer wing players [/quote]So while he is defending SG, one of our short guards has to defend a 6'7" forward? Or do you think McMahon plays him at shooting guard despite ...

re: LSU Basketball is only missing one element on its roster... - Tom Bronco
[quote]Mwani ain't starting on this team. I don’t know why people think this. He can shoot competently, he plays defense, he rebounds competently.[/quote] Nobody can fault him on his defense and overall hustle. At 6'5" he was not a good rebounder or inside scorer. He only averaged 3 rebounds a ga...

re: LSU Basketball is only missing one element on its roster... - Tom Bronco
It is becoming a deep roster but you really can't determine who gets playing time without seeing them play in games. That's what the pre-SEC games are for to see who is going to be in the rotation. The two questions to me are: 1. Can the small school talent play to the same level at SEC level? ...
