Ease up, JJ's teams will always throw down the frustrating conference loss, but they will also always play their best basketball at conference tournament time.

 

Don't be surprised to see a mini run in your conference tournament and major runs after year 2.

Your players are clearly gutless immature jerks with fat heads and no heart. How is a first year coach supposed to handle that?

Wow! I can't believe a team hires an experienced, 20 win, D1 coach and then struggles a bit in the first year. I have been told that hiring that resume will always create a great winning program instantly. How can it be? The sky muSt be falling. Armageddon is upon us all! Hide the women and children.

Seriously, UNT90 has a point for you to hang your at on. JJ has a knack of seeming to peak at the right time. Hold your horses grasshopper, you guys will be fine. Just remember, you really were not lighting up the SEC before JJ got there. Relax...enjoy the ride, support the Tigers...you will be OK with JJ at the helm.

Surely you understand that LSU wasn't the HEAVY favorite to win their division in the SEC, compete at a national level for the 1st time in their histoy, and have an Nba lottery pick in theor starting lineup, right?

JJ will make close games exciting to the end, especially in the last two minutes. Sometimes it works, and sometimes like last night, it doesn't. You won't be bored.

I was never satisfied with the lack of a coherent approach to offense or that we struggled against the likes of UALR. I was prepared for some disruption in the hope that we might ultimately advance past where Coach Jones had gotten us. However, I am starting to feel really desperate about the basketball situation. I don't want him back though. I want someone better.

I personally have not seen it work, but I do know people who believe it works. I suppose to depends on how you run it. A typical 2-3 zone traps in the corners so no because it allows the ball to be swung around the permitter to the open man for a 3. I suppose if you ran your 2-3 like a 4-1 then it could stop the three? It would depend on your 3 and 4 coming out of the post to trap in the corner so that your opposite side guard can cover the top and your opposite side post can cut off the cross court pass. Down side is this would leave you vulnerable to cutters and and your 5 has no help in the paint. I guess it is all a matter of perspective and what you consider a true 2-3 zone. A true 2-3 zone allows the team to shoot right over it so not sure how it guards the three. If you think it does that is fine. You ma picture it run differently in your mind.

A typical 2-3 traps in the corner? you have no clue lol, maybe at the wing, but not the corner if you are trapping in the corner a 1-3-1 or 1-2-2 are much better. Every defense has weaknesses, if you run a 2-3 you are susceptible to an over load, high low or someone screening the back side of your zone driving and forcing the bottom guy to either stop penetration or take away the 3. If you run man people can run ALL kinds of sets against you that force you to decide what you want to take away.
