    ... that Tony Bennett is the favorite to become LSU head basketball coach. Didn't cite any support/sources, so I'm assuming it is just his speculation. But I only heard a clip, so if anyone heard otherwise I'd appreciate the scoop. (Please, let's not turn this into a bash Ott thread!) :lol:

    Bennett and Grant both turned down the Marquette job over the weekend, and I know for a fact Bennett met with the search firm sunday, all of this is in a article i cant find.

    yeah, but Fowles didn't magically improve her teammates FG percentage.

    The style doesn't matter as much recruiting the players to fit the style. The style last night was fine but there was a lid on the basket. Big Syl also missed her share of wide open lay ups. On the men's side, everyone knows the lack of a point guard hurt the team. The key is to get a coach who will create excitement and play consistant.
