Many here won't agree but Brady is in charge of building a basketball program and attendance will not get better just because of wins and losses. While you may disagree with me it's just a fact. Remember, LSU fans had their hearts torn out by Dale Brown and the NCAA with their ridiculous penalties and they need to be re-sold on the product. If he doesn't get the fans interested by doing a tremendous amount of publicity, playing at least good, recognizable programs and exciting ball they are just not going to come. You think Arkansas just rolled a ball out on the court and the fans filled up the arena? Nolan Richardson went there and built a program from nothing, working on many things and he was a bigger ass than Brady that didn't like the media, but he did whatever it took to build excitement in the program. When Coach K. first went to Duke there wasn't the Cameron Crazies, they had a decent Basketball following but Coach K. built it to a fever pitch. The baseball team didn't lead the SEC in attendance, for that matter didn't even lead UNO in attendance, before Skip came and built the program. If you want a good example of what needs to be done, read everything you can about what Skip did. Winning basaball games was only a small part of it. He built traditions, went all around the state talking about LSU basaball, made local kids ballboys for a day at all games, had family days where entire families were honored, raised money to better the facilites by going out and working corporations hard. Dale did many of those same thinbgs when he got here, he actually went around LA and hung nets on all of the unused basketball goals around the state. If you don't think the coach has anything to do with building the program and fan interest than I am afraid you are totally wrong. there's a big difference in building a program and maintaining one. Also, Bertman always stayed great with the press and the fans, always had great promotions even after the program was the bes tin the nation and Brady does none of that. Nick isn't great with the press but he is great with the fans and he always goes out of his way to talk about the fans over and over again in all of his statements. He runs to the end zones at away games after we win to thank all of the Tigah fans, he salutes the fans in Death Valley after games, Brady does none of this. I would even hazard a guess that some men a long time ago did some very creative things to stimulate interest in LSU football and kept doing those things, just like we still do many of them by allowing on campus tailgating, beer, the tiger Walk, which was started only a few years ago, the great songs played by our band, Mike the tiger, etc. This isn't to disparage Brady as a coach as I've decided that i will give him the benefit of the doubt and a couple of seasons off of probation to see how the team does. But don't complain about the fans when the program isn't trying to build itself.
