One of my few beefs with John Brady, but it is a major one. http://www.nwlouisiana.com/html/86A992C3-7F37-4F14-9844-B318D0B68DAB.shtml "I'm not worried about that," LSU head coach John Brady said about the team's attendance. "We're playing as good as anybody in the league right now and I'm not concerned about that. I'm not concerned about the rankings or the crowd." There you have it folks. Poor basketball crowds? Well, Coach Brady just doesn't give a crap! I'm sorry, but that is pathetic, inexcuseable, and unacceptable. I look at Coach Saban as an example. The LSU Fightin' Tigers football team is the most important team in the most important sport in this state. Huge crowds are practically guaranteed. Yet Coach Saban still goes out of his way to show the fans they matter. He speaks to fan groups around the state during the offseason. He salutes the crowd and speaks to them. He tells them how much their support matters and how much they are needed. Coach Brady, on the other hand, who is actually in a position where sellout crowds are NOT a given and he needs to be out selling the program and winning over fans, makes statements like this. Ex-head football coach at UL-Lafayette Jerry Baldwin once flatly stated that it was not his job to fill the seats or raise money for his program. That was one of the major factors that contributed to his firing. If Coach Brady has a similar attitude, and judging by his words we can only assume he does, it will contribute to his undoing here at LSU, if push ever comes to shove concerning his job. I'm sorry Coach Brady, but you do need to be concerned with attendance. It IS part of your job. It IS your concern. We will support you, but you have got to ask for it and you have got to show us we matter and that you care. If you care about your team, I can assure you; comments like this do nothing but hurt your team.
