No ESPN love for the hoops team

ESPN announced its matchups for the SEC basketball games on Super Tuesday.

LSU fans can go ahead and makes plans on every Tuesday this coming winter. That's because you won't find LSU on the ESPN schedule.

You will find Kentucky on the schedule four times. In fact, of the eight Super Tuesday SEC games announced, only three Western Division teams will play. Alabama, Mississippi State and Ole Miss each make one national TV appearance on Tuesday.

So while LSU won the SEC's regular season championship last year, to the folks in Bristol, Trent Johnson's crew was a one-hit wonder.

And while no one ever expects LSU basketball to compete with football, a reasonable expectation would be to at least compete on the national stage.
