Hoops talk

In the last few years, the start of men's basketball season at LSU has been engulfed by the football team.

While there is still a football game on Saturday -- well, the Tigers are scheduled to play Troy -- basketball is starting and maybe fans should pay attention.

The difference, besides Trent Johnson coaching the team, is apparently there are some in the world of sports pundits who have fairly high hopes for this group.

Not only were the Tigers picked to finish second in the SEC West at the conference media days, but this week's Sports Illustrated college basketball preview has the Tigers among the field of 65 for the NCAA Tournament.

If that happens, maybe LSU fans will take notice.
