    What a gutsy performance by the Tigers! The Rowdy Reptiles were trying to bring the roof down while enjoying a ten point lead late in the game. But on came the Tigers! Lloreda was playing on one leg! Anytime you can come into the O'Connell Center and overcome a ten point deficit, you have accomplished something. It was sweet to be there today and to finally enjoy a Tiger win in Gainesville.

    After the game, Brady took a picture at mid-court on the Gator Head with the families and friends of LSU players. I was able to meet Xavier Whipple's mom. The few LSU fans that were there were chanting LSU....LSU...LSU....! Had a great time. It will be a good week here in Gainesville for Tiger Saint!

    Say what you want about Brady, but his teams always have heart. That was made very clear to me during the 2000-01 season. We had only five scholarship players, we were cut to pieces by injuries during the season, but that team still managed to win the first game in the SEC Tournament against Georgia (costing them a shot at the Big Dance) and fought a superior Arkansas team to the wire. Every game, despite being woefully outmanned, they would fight, scratch and claw to the bitter end. Often we would be within two or three points with one minute to go and just run out of gas. But that season showed me Brady, for all his faults, could coach X's and O's and could keep a team together and hungry to win even in the most difficult of times.

    If this team has the character and fight in it that that Tiger b-ball team had, then I know we are going to do very well this season.
