It is a LOT easier for a ncaa basketball team to have a 20 win season than it is for a ncaa football team to run the table for a NC.
This is a joke, right? More than half the people on here really believe that there's a better chance that the football team will end up No. 1 than the chance the basketball team will be in the top 65 teams? And this is knowing that football has to play Georgia, Auburn, AND Florida on the road? You have to give basketball at least a little more credit than that.
No kidding huh. It's not like the poll is football NC or basketball NC.
Could you change the poll to give us three choices?
1- Football Nat'l Title
2-Men's Basketball NCAA bid *WITH* John Brady as HC
3-Men's Basketball NCAA bid *WITHOUT* John Brady as HC
I have to vote football in the poll the way it currently stands. To do otherwise would be insane, IMO.
I know what you are saying, and maybe LSU basketball isn't reaching their full potiential under John Brady and maybe they never will. But the fact remains that under John Brady we've ALREADY had two trips to the NCAA tournament. How many national championships has LSU football won during that time? One. And that was with a schedule nowhere near as killer as the one coming up.
I'd say our odds of winning a Football National title this year would be about 10%. I think our odds of getting an NCAA bid this year would be about 40-50%.
Geez, guys. NCAA bids go to 65 teams! We will get at least 7 from the SEC. If we arent at least 7th best in the SEC, I will be very surprised. Much more surprised than if we dont end up at least 1st best in football.
Football still has a slight edge.
Lots of Kool-Aid drinkers here.
Some of these guys voting for football must be about 3 or 4 years old and not realize how long it took us to win our second NC. Of course it's probably just guys flaming the basketball program in a backhanded sort of way.
