    Unless Walker had a hand in the debacle, why would he praise Lee throughout the A.P.R. nightmare?

    This river of players through the program was not a problem under Evans and Schexnayder. But suddenly a D1 coach in Lee's position suddenly gets the bright idea of his own volition, "I can do this with nothing but High School players? There was nothing in his coaching pedigree to suggest that this was remotely possible.

    This was a drastic step induced by his boss when he took the helm with the edict to clean up the basketball program.

    A few years later Walker said APR was confusing. I don't think he gave it any thought (or understood the outcome) when he first had Lee flush the players.

    I don't think this was Lee's idea and is why Walker praised his actions.

    I didn't say he came up with the idea of his own volition. I said that he knew it was needed...Walker was of the same opinion...he went forward with it. To say that "Walker forced him to do it" is not what happened.

    Mike Bernard just said on KPEL AM that he heard rumors about UL vs LSU in the NIT. That would be a battle between the two worst coach's in the NCAA.

    Nope. Never in a million years. Alice Shoe can't risk a loss to a SBC instate program.

    Bandit passed on a rumor he heard at the gym. It was from someone who does not know what he is talking about. In today's world mid majors who get the NIT bids are regular season champs who do not win their conference tournament. Rest of NIT bids go to the power conference teams that are above 0.500 and don't go to the NCAA. With all the conference tournament upsets, there will be plenty of mid major conference champions in the NIT.
