I think that this loss, considering how bad it was played, will leave a sour mark on what has been in my opinion, a memorable season. There were many peaks and valleys in this season for the Tigers. After the horrid 6-5 start to the great 20-9 finish, the season left us with some good and bad memories. After the atrocious game at kentucky, who'll forget the great run with a sweep over MSST, and the home wins over Florida and Alabama. What about the classic game against Kentucky in the SEC tourney. I think this year also showed that JB is a decent coach and that the players are starting to respond to him better. He's made strides to be more of a player friendly coach and we saw that during that great 7 game win streak to close the year. Even though he turned the ball over, Tack was a good player for LSU. He wears his heart on his sleeve and he seems to have a great level of excitement in the game. I think he has great potential when he learns how to play the point. The Tigers return virtually everybody next year. Hud will be missed. But, with a solid crew coming in I think the future is bright. Having said that, this game tonite was just horrible. It's ashame that it ended this way for this team. I believe that this loss was equal coachin as it was the players. The guard play was bad. Bass again showed why he is the player of the year. I hate to say this, but after a great effort like this from Bass, I dont see why he'd stay. Unless his draft stock goes down, this game is the kind that Shaq's career ended on. I'd hate to see him go, but I think it would be good for him if the price was right. With Mitch, Bass, Baby, Tack, Neltner coming back and a solid class coming in, good things could be on the horizon. But, as it is, this was anohter carbon copy of 2002 against Purdue. Great season ending run and bottom out in tourney. The bad thing is, they needed a good run to get interest back in town. Now, we'll be looking at another mediocre attendence and fan support year next year. I hate that it is over.
