I just wanted to take the time to say I love LSU. Who needs a hug now? Will it get better? Being a diehard basketball fan, it hurts every year on Selection Sunday when the brackets are announced and our beloved Tigers ticket did not get punched. We have suffered far too long now since a consistent winning product has been put on the floor. I measure a winning product by making it to the Big Dance and this team has only been twice in the last 10 years. It time for a change. A change is eminent. 1993-1994 11-16(Overall) 5-11(SEC) Dale Brown 1994-1995 12-15(Overall) 6-10(SEC) Dale Brown 1995-1996 12-17(Overall) 4-12(SEC) Dale Brown 1996-1997 10-20(Overall) 3-13(SEC) Dale Brown 1997-1998 9-19 (Overall) 2-14(SEC) John Brady 1998-1999 12-15(Overall) 4-12(SEC) John Brady 1999-2000 28-6(Overall) 12-4(SEC) John Brady 2000-2001 13-16(Overall) 2-14(SEC) John Brady 2001-2002 19-15(Overall) 6-10(SEC) John Brady 2002-2003 21-11(Overall) 8-8(SEC) John Brady 2003-2004 18-10(Overall) 8-8(SEC) John Brady 42-70 Total SEC record for John Brady equals a 0.40% winning % This is Brady's 7th year. How long does it take? With the current landscape of college basketball much like the NFL, it should not take more than 2/3 years to turn the corner probation or not. Dear John is on his 7th. The most telling argument is John Brady took a team in 1999-2000 to a 12-4 record in the SEC and followed that up with a 2-14 record in the SEC the next year. Ask yourself this question. Would you accept winning the SEC in football and baseball one year to finishing dead last the next? It's called rebuilding and reloading. Brady has managed to pillage and ransack.
