I'm not the type of person that puts a lot of interest in other people's opinions sijmply because they are just that: opinions. But when I read today's advocate and this article, my blood started to boil. Opinions must be made responsibly by people in a position to influence others, like sportswriters. Mr. Guilbeau made several points in his article, but I'm only going to touch on the ones that bothered me. Point #1: LSU basketball does not have one of the best recruiting classes in the nation. Wow. It's amazing that he can analyze the sucess of a recruiting class by the first half of their freshman year. I wish I could see into the future like that. I have a message for Mr. Guilbeau: Put down the Magic 8-ball and wait awhile before you start judging freshman basketball players. If you applied this logic to football then Justin Vincent couldn't have been a great recruit because his production was mainly in the second half of the season and obviously it's the first half of the season that counts. Dumb. Point #2: LSU basketball should not have been picked to win the SEC WEST. Wow again. So Mr. Guilbeau, how's your NCAA bracket look? Obviously you've filled one out already. We have played a whole 3 SEC games AND WON 2! Granted, the game against Miss. St. was a disappointment, but so was the Florida game in football. It's early in the season and a lot can happen between now and the end. We have traditionally played poorly in January under Brady (b/c of a weak non-conference schedule), but picked up the tempo as the season went on. Again: dumb. This is my opinion. I think we should wait and see what happens before making our doomsday predictions and showing our disappointment in FRESHMEN. I applaud Mr. Guilbeau for trying to be objective, but save it for after the season. I've checked my Magic 8-ball, Mr. Guilbeau, and it says: REPLY HAZY. TRY AGAIN LATER.
