    Has the womens hoops team, lost their dominance? With loses to Northwestern, Ohio State, and the SEC powers had me wondering, what has happened?? Yeah we beat Georgia but that's about it. I mean Penn State's team is doing better than us. Maybe we can't recruit good players like Tennessee. Or maybe its just a down year, we did lose our best player Allison Hightower to the WNBA's Connecticut Sun. But if it is a down year how long will it last?? Or is it just another problem all teams go through??

    I think it is just a down year. Plus injuries have hurt the team this season. I think Chancellor will bring them back...but I also think he is looking for his replacement. He's stayed longer than he anticipated I believe.

    They have one of the best centers in the country coming in next year. I think her name is Kyrstal Fortham or something like that .

    Chancellor was simply there to stabalize in the post-Pokey saga. I like the guy, but i'm not sure he is the guy to take us to the next level, though he has done well sustaining us.

    bring kim mulkey in ...

    25 turnovers in a loss to Kentucky. Ouch.

    Kim Mulkey hates LSU. lol. I don't think she would come here for a million.

    LSU was stupid in firing Chapman.

    Chancellor has done a really poor job and the ship is sinking.

    This is Smoke Laval part deux. It really is.

    LSU had arguably the best class about 3 years ago and we're reaping (or not reaping, in this case) these minimal results.

    Time to cut ties with him. LSU would draw a great young coach coming up through the ranks from a smaller school.

    Our two teams share a lot in common... both women's teams went through a similar scandal around the same time (although on different ends of the spectrum... Portland for being too anti-lesbian, Chatman for being too... pro-lesbian?)... both scandals rocked both programs pretty hard despite both having huge and great histories.

    One interesting way to look at it is by seeing who each AD hired. PSU hired a rising assistant from a good Notre Dame team, and LSU hired a coach who had great success on the professional level... which may have weakened LSU's ability to recruit good players.

    In the SEC, perennial good programs like LSU must have beyond great recruiting because you are up against Pat Summit in that league. She is the end-all-be-all for the SEC. If you don't effectively compete, you're going to fall.
