    SEC record is 4-6 but we have only beaten 2 teams and lost to 6.

    I can't wait to see how the team plays next year with that #3 recruiting class coming in. Like dachsie told me, "I hope we're not doing something wrong."

    If winning games is wrong, I don't want to be right.

    People gave Tarkanian a hard time taking questionable kids. Koach K made a remark that he wouldnt hang a NC banner unless all the kids graduated. Well Tark hung his. The year he won by the same standard. K hadto wait 6 years.
    Just maybe you make a positive change with these kids.

    quote:

    Will Wade admits that he can handle losing, but what he can’t stomach is the way the LSU basketball team lost games at Auburn and Tennessee last week.

    Apparently, neither can the Tigers.

    After losing back-to-back games to Auburn by 25 points and Tennessee by 23, Wade sent shockwaves through his team by temporarily taking away some of their perks.

    Speaking Tuesday to a large group of fans at the monthly Will Wade Tipoff Luncheon at L’Auberge Hotel Casino, the Tigers’ first-year coach told of locking his team out of its locker room for two days before last Saturday’s home game with Arkansas.

    “We usually eat really, really nice meals; they get all this great food after practice — fish, steak, chicken, pasta … it’s a big-time spread,” Wade told his audience. “I got rid of all that, and I got them ham-and-cheese box lunches.
    quote:

    “So, they were going to play their ass off against Arkansas,” he said to laughter from the crowd. “They were tired of the ham-and-cheese sandwiches, and they were tired of not being in the locker room.”

    The meals and locker room weren’t the only things the players lost.

    Wade had them wash their own clothes, which the team’s managers usually do.

    “I wouldn’t let the managers do any of their laundry,” he said. “I felt like a couple of them got a little too comfortable about being here.

    quote:
    “Think about all the stuff they get: The managers do the laundry and give it back the next day, they get three meals a day. Their locker room is tremendous with couches. … Sometimes you have to rattle their cages a little bit. That got their attention.”

    I told 'em to put those earrings in a box and send 'em back to their mamas. Now where did I hear that?
