I've changed my mind on Mike Anderson (Sadly)

Postby jcerzb1 » Sat Feb 03, 2018 4:52 pm

I think Mike Anderson will be a fine coach in a league where there isn't much competition, but he's never going to win anything in the SEC. He would be awesome in like the American, Colonial, Conference USA, but he's completely out of his league in the SEC. MA's a good dude, class act, but he's simply outwitted on the basketball court. All LSU did today was old school ACC basketball, the PG simply breaks down the defense, and MA never had any answers.

But the bottom line is, Arkansas is NEVER winning anything with this guy, I don't even think we would win the NIT to be honest.

I agree. He's a good coach, a couple tiers above what we had before him (Heath and definitely Pelphrey), but that's all he is....average. It's going to be a lot of up and down years ahead with Mike, with several 2nd Rd exits. Ya'll get ready!!

I am still waiting for an "up" year! This is his seventh season and he has in my view only had one good year (2014-15) and a couple of decent years. And even in 2015 we still got bounced in the second round of the NCAAs.

In LSU's other 8 conference games excluding Arkansas they are averaging about 68 pts, against Arkansas they averaged 84 in two games. My guess is that everyone pads there offensive stats against the Hogs.

I have no answers. But much like the big extension/guarantee Bielema got a couple years ago I don't understand the extension Anderson got earlier this season.

I have the same feeling. 😞

If Anderson was gone, who, realistically, do you think we could get?

How quickly people turn on a coach that has done so much for our school and state.

I can repeat why most of these comments bear no weight since Anderson has been in the SEC, but at this point it's moot.

“Moot”, yes that’s a perfect word for most of the points you continually post on the lounge.
Other than the entertainment value you provide for most of us about your vast knowledge about the game of basketball I think you’ve come up with the perfect word for how most view your opinions.

Please keep us informed about how many winnable games you will see if we do sneak into the NCAA Tournament as a 11-12 seed in our bracket, we can’t wait!

Go Hogs!

Again, I'm glad you like it and hope for failure just so I'd be wrong. And still, none of that takes away from my knowledge of the game. If I say something wrong, call it out. Game predictions or looking at HOW a team can win and how winnable a game is by the numbers doesn't mean we actually will win. I just go by the numbers and trends.

General, I don’t nor do I believe 99.9% of those fine folks on this forum “Hope for failure”.
However, many of us are simply “Realistic”about what we see and aren’t looking at everything through Rose Colored Glasses.
I believe these Hogs could win the next two home games based on the opponents if they play up to how they should play at home which would get them back to .500 at 6-6.
However, after those Home wins, if they do actually win both of those I find it very difficult to find more than two more wins based on how we matchup against the remaining opponents.

Go Hogs!

I disagree with your highlighted statement. Very good chance, Ole Miss will be down for their game. We will be WAAAAAY up for both KY and AUB (with a realistic chance AUB will have already clinched the SEC by then and not be “dialed in” for our game). ATm struggles on the road, and Missery is like us, they have good games, and SMDH games.

The only game I see a guaranteed loss is @ Bama, Sexton is better than Waters, the other freshmen is a 3 pt stud, who we will leave open, and it’s @ Bama, so you know home cooking will be in affect.
