[quote]Kelvin Sampson is undefeated. [/quote]Yeah and we beat him the two years before this when they were favored both times. Try to do at least a little research before you are ready to fire and hire....

Close Game Determined by Offensive Rebounding - Tom Bronco
I know people want to talk about all the three pointers we took and didn't make or how badly we play defense overall and against the three pointer but this game was strictly offensive rebounding. We shot a terrible 5-26 on three's for 19.25 % but Houston did only slightly better at 4-20 for 20%....

re: Foul Shots? - Tom Bronco
It is not so much your overall percentage but when you make them. In a close game they are very important in determine the winner at the end of the game. A miss or make on free throws can change the last minute strategy. Tremont cost us the Florida State game by missing a late free throw that would...

re: Terrible basketball - Tom Bronco
Okay, I'm pissed too but I just hate being so pessimistic. Houston was a damn good team! They will be in the NCAA Tournament. We had a 15 point lead on this damn good team. This is where you can fault the coaching. We had them on the ropes. They were getting frantic and out of control. This is when ...

re: LSU MBB: What is our identity? - Tom Bronco
I can't believe some of these remarks. Our identity is a time bomb waiting to explode. We haven't exploded yet because we have two freshmen having to adjust their high school games quite a bit, Naz and Emmitt. A super star point guard who is having trouble adjusting his game to more talent around hi...

re: Skylar Mays - Glue to team - Tom Bronco
Waters shooting seems to be coming around but it is the continuing rash of turnovers that is hurting us. Some of it is just careless, not paying attention kind of stuff but other times he is just trying too hard to pull off the great play. Everything doesn't have to be an alley oop dunk or driving t...

re: Will Wade is Dale Brown without defense - Tom Bronco
Nice troll effort. I thought for the type of game it was, not competitive with LSU, we played quite well thank you. Since we held them to 51 points without defense, I would hate to see how few points they would have gotten with defense. They obviously had sets they were running all through the g...

re: Getting 'tougher, grittier, grimier' is Wade's goal in return to court - Tom Bronco
If we don't see major improvement against Incarnate Word, who admittedly is a very weak opponent, then it might be a tough SEC road. The three games after that will tell the tale. Houston, St. Mary's and Furman are all tough teams and it will take much better execution to beat all three. It is no...

re: LSU was 44th in scoring offense this year at 31.8 PPG - Tom Bronco
You can manipulate the numbers a great many ways. Which way makes the most sense depends on your bias and what you are trying to prove. How about a stat where you compare each team based on what they did against their conference teams. So what did we score in our SEC games and what did Michigan scor...

[quote]But man...I need to see some big W’s from this program. I can’t wait 4 or 5 seasons. It’s time to see some results. I thought we brought in big time talent ?[/quote]Talent that works in high school doesn't always work in college. At least not without some growing and adjusting. Lots of teams ...

[quote]College FB is a business and this dude is a professional athlete. The fans can bitch and greedy should be able to handle it. It’s all business. [/quote]I agree. This is what college football has become. So if it is a business and these players are doing what is most beneficial for them from...

re: Chicken, too many threads bashing players, learn to appreciate all LSU players - Tom Bronco
They don't come to LSU for free. They get tuition, room, board, training in both football and academics, press exposure and a chance to build a resume so they will get drafted. The fact that most of our athletes don't care about the academic part is a damn shame. How many other LSU students would lo...

re: Naz Reid 5 star ? - Tom Bronco
It is too early to tell about Naz. Some players come in as Freshmen and they have had great coaching in high school and are ready to roll. Others are raw and have great individual skills but haven't been taught how to blend that into a team game. Like a lot of other freshmen we have had, Naz is goin...

re: LSU (78) vs. Grambling State (57) Final Tigers Win - Tom Bronco
I really hope we don't just win but show a much smoother team on offense and defense. Slow it down and play the odds. The fast break opportunities will come in the second half when Grambling starts taking a lot of quick threes trying to catch up. Can't wait to see the new rotations and who is going ...

re: Why bother to have bowl games? - Tom Bronco
Pull their scholarship would have zero affect. Classes for the fall semester are over and they are going to drop out anyway and not finish (or even start spring). What would make sense to me would be to have a clause in each scholarship that would require repayment of the value of their scholarship ...

[quote]These guys come to play for a championship not to play in some meaningless bowl game!

re: So let me get this straight; the narrative now is lack of talent at LSU? - Tom Bronco
[quote] Then why is LSU behind these teams in terms of statistics? [/quote]Just to be argumentative, how about most of those teams don't play against SEC caliber defenses? Another argument could be the offensive line never played the same group twice due to injuries. But sure, unimaginative pla...
