LSU, Ben Simmons drop another one

B9317275531Z.1_20150509171024_000_GVBANP1QL.1-0

The LSU Tigers continued their shockingly bad season this evening, falling to 4-4 on the year after a 98-105 loss at Houston.

Despite having the best player in college basketball since Anthony Davis (Ben Simmons) the Tigers have lost all of their games to unranked teams – including an embarrassing 12 point loss to Charleston.

Surprisingly, a few other top 10 recruits are also on teams that are struggling. Malik Newman (Mississippi State), Ivan Rabb (Cal), and Jaylen Brown (Cal), are all currently in danger of missing the tournament.

The latter three guys were recruited by Kentucky.

Moral of the story: if you like to win, you should probably come here.

    Johnny Jones = Dale Brown 2.0.

      …and Ben Simmons = Pete Maravich 2.0 . Teams just let Pistol Pete do his damage, and focused on the other 4 ; LSU never even went to the NCAA Tourney during his LSU career…and neither will this team.

      Wow! Good point. Wooden said basketball was a team sport…

      Dale Brown was a good a coach on his best day and decent on his worst. I’d dare say that LSU has never had a better coach. Johnny Jones dreams of the day that he’s half the coach that Dale Brown was.

      The real moral of this story is, “Hey kids, choosing a terrible coach and terrible program could cost you a few million dollars.”

    How come there isn’t a comment section on the article written by Mr. Miller on Enes

      To prevent a racist Republican redneck comment meltdown.

      UKBBU… I find it humorous how progressives & liberals preach acceptance, understanding, and their disdain for stereotyping & generalizing; yet, here you are labeling republicans as racist. tisk tisk…

    If I’m a racist for not wanting a bunch of out of control hate mungers running around my country killing innocent people for no reason, guess I’m racist. I could give a crap what they do to each other in the middle east and for the safety of others we should keep it that way. They have been killing each other over there for 1000’s of years I say send them back and if you want to help them then just drop a nuke it’ll just speed up the process.

      And apply for a hardship waiver. Hardship: Made a really bad choice of team and it’s really hard to see better teams like UK on tv all the time.

    They dont want to win, they want to get paid. Simple as that. We know the rule…so you can either go overseas or go to college…

    Isn’t it wonderful how Calipari comes out smelling like a rose when he misses out on certain players (Alexander at KU), (the one from Dallas who went overseas) (Newman) (Rabb) (Brown) (Blakeney ) and a lot of others)

    If we are going to use this article as a surrogate comments section for Miller’s article, here is my take. He actually makes some logical points in it. One could certainly twist many passages in the Old Testament to fit an agenda, and many fundamentalists do just that. There have been plenty of atrocities done in the name of God by Christians in past history, just as these ISIS idiots are doing today. The fact is that both religions are worshiping the same entity, and it is more of an issue of politics versus religion that is driving all of this – ISIS is simply using religious fervor with fundamentalist Muslims to further their political agenda against western culture.

    We certainly have to find a way to be more vigilant and monitor the people that are entering the country, but trying to solve the problem by simply trying to filter out people of the a certain faith is not going to work. Look back at most of the mass shootings over the past 5 years. The vast majority of them were perpetrated by non-muslims.

    I think from what I read that Simmons committed early to LSU before he was so highly rated and to his credit he stuck to his word. However I bet he may wish he hadn’t committed so early.

    UK fans would be ragging on Skal if he was playing anywhere else. The real moral of the story is that no single player makes a team and few of these guys are going to be very impressive as freshmen unless they are playing with other quality players.
