Know your enemy- @ LSU Tigers

Stats

I'm going to keep this short and sweet. LSU have lost their last 8, 10 of 12, and 12 of 15 games. They are the suck. Can they beat us? Sure they can if everything goes their way. Will they beat us? Probably not.

They have all sorts of size, but no real inside scoring threat. That's odd. They're bad offensively (40% FG, 32% 3pt FG, 66.4% FT) and turn the ball over roughly 14 times a game.

So they can't shoot and we're one of the best in the nation defending. This doesn't sound good for the Bayou Bengals. Dale Brown and John Brady are rolling over in their graves.

Prediction: LSU might hang around for a half, then Green goes off inside with Mitchell putting in 18-20 points to pull this one out. Bama by 13.

Game time is 9PM EST (8PM CST) Thursday 2/17. I believe it is on ESPN. ESPN3.com if you can't find a TV, but have access to the internet.

Side note- seems like all the SEC sites have similar content. I liked it much better when they were independent of each other.

regardless of how bad a team lsu is, it's an sec road game in a place where we haven't had a lot of luck lately.

we need this win badly. i'm still of a mind that we need to win the regular season or the tourney to get in.

i'm not saying we won't get an at-large, but i am saying it will require the selection committee to look the other way at our OOC games

RTR!

Unrelated, but how many coaches DO we have?

I counted 14 suits surrounding our team at one point in a recent game.

Is there an NCAA limit?

TRIVIA: Red Auerbach had NO assistants when he coached the NBA Celtics to 9 championships.

Remember when SEC road games were automatic losses? Man, a lot has changed in a short amount of time.

Regarding all the coaches... DJC and I discussed that in St Thomas. Looks like we have 1 coach for every players. Grant might have more on his staff than Saban.

Yeah, it threw us for a loop too. I couldn't find a thing regarding how many coaches are allowed.

Your ability to predict final margins within a bucket or two is uncanny.
