There is little doubt in my mind that Coach Brady is the best coach for LSU right now. Let's face it. While we all knew we were a "sleeping monster" in football, we should also accept that our basketball program never really has been a big time program on a national scale. When Coach Brown left LSU, very few coaches wanted any part of our program. Within 5 years Coach Brady was in the Sweet 16. Since then Brady has been to the NIT and the NCAA Tourney. We are headed back to the NCAA tourney this season. Every season since Stromile left the team LSU has overperformed their projected finish. In '01 we upset Georgia in the SECTourney. Georgia was a top 15 team. In '02 we got to the NIT when we weren't supposed to go anywhere. In '03 we went to the NCAAs when we were supposed to go to the NIT. This season we weren't supposed to be a Tourny team. We weren't supposed to be a bubble team. This season Brady has the most potential talent on the floor as Frosh and Sophs that he's ever had, and LSU's had since the Chris Jackson days. I'll be happy with a tourny appearence this season, a second round or Sweet 16 berth will be a blessing**. With the return of our Frosh Talent next season as Sophs, if they develop anywhere near the margin of Stromile Swift's development from Spring '99 - Fall '99, we're in for VERY VERY good things next season. Brady is the best LSU has, and could have right now. We're not going to bring in Coach K or some big time name. Coach Brady believed in LSU. I believe in Coach Brady. He's proven himself to me. Compare Donovan's '03-'04 season to Brady's. I think they compare well. I doubt any Florida fans are calling for Donovan's head. Donovan didn't have YEARS of scholorship restrictions to deal with to develop his program. ** - Auburn went to the sweet 16 last year. They had a very similar year last year to the one LSU is having this year. This team has the talent to make noise in the NCAAs.
