The board made it official and will add Sue Gunter’s name to the court alongside Dale Brown. And I am here to stan for both of them. There are only 3 schools in the SEC that have more Men’s final four appearances than LSU. Kentucky, Arkansas, and Florida. And when one coach is responsible for Half of your schools appearances and up levels the program as a whole, you don’t rate him on a scale against other program accomplishments, you rate what he did for your school. That is the case for Dale Brown. Football was up and down, and he took advantage of the window and made basketball nationally prominent for an extended period of time.
And in terms of Women’s Basketball, we forget that we are in BY FAR the hardest conference to build a national contender. Only 8 times in the history of WBB has there been a final four WITHOUT and SEC team in it. And Tennessee takes up more than half of that representation. So for Sue Gunter to come in during the prime Pat Summit days and build up our program to eventually go on the run that it did speaks volumes. And I would say LSUs’ own internal bureaucracy was a tougher gamut than the SEC for her to navigate. She earned it.
Baseball starts this week. We look like Zod. I can not wait to pummel UT in a couple of weeks. I always take it as a good sign when the Omaha paper features your program. Outside of Louisiana, No town loves the Tigahs more than Omaha.
Finally, it is combine season. And I love it when scouts are getting tape and seeing LSU players pop off. Golic was watching Bryce tape and ended up seeing the best player on the field was on defense.
This is the take I trust the most on this

peace offering: Harold Perkins made me rewind the tape like 20 times. watching him hawk down Bryce in the open field and then torch the RT is unfair.— Mike Golic Jr (@mikegolicjr) February 15, 2023
