Treat them kindly, my fellow Section K Lunkheads, and make sure they know that Long Beach Sucks!

Titans are 2 point favorites 


with the over/under 161.5 (i.e., Titans 82 Dirtbags 80)

Vegas was way off last game let's hope they get back on track.

First time in a very long time where the Titans are not the predicted victor.

Dan Jennings 


Upon hearing that shorthanded Cal State Fullerton is often running five-guard sets, Long Beach State center Dan Jennings barely tried to contain his excitement for this weekend’s matchup saying, “I’m going to go to work.” Jennings, a transfer from West Virginia, has been looking forward to playing the Titans all season, embracing the rivalry of his new team.

“I’m excited about that game,” Jennings said. “I know that Santa Barbara has been our rival, but I heard that one is big time.”

Okay, optimistically thinking.... the debaucle we suffered through last Thursday was not good for the team.... could they have been looking forward to the 9'ers? (LOL)
Did we have a massive flu attack?

What ever, let's flush that game out of our system.

Get back to moving the ball around take advantage of bigger slower guys and knock down those open shots... (and take them when available and not hesitate like last thursday.)

Go Titans!!!!!

Much better effort last night.  Seemed like all played hard.  Even though we lost I was proud to be a Titan.

RE: Long Beach State Game Thread 


Question for those of you in the know, this is the second game I have attended in Titan gym this season and I noticed your scoreboard section that lists the players on the court and how many points and fouls they have was not working for either. Has this ever worked? What is the schedule for getting it up? It was an interesting game last night, might have turned out different had Kwame stayed out of foul trouble. I thought the refs generally let them play for much of the game and that favored you guys because of your depth issues and the fact you so aggressively play for steals (could have been worse had they been calling the reaches more tightly). After three tough years there, it was good to come out with a win. 

I have watched some of the interviews of Andy and he seems like a really likable man; but, I think you are going to really miss Burton. As a LB fan, I know we never had an easy night against a Burton coached team. Andy seems a step or two behind Burton; but, if you decide to hire someone else you probably lack the resources to go big and are back to the first job for an assistant model which is really iffy. I feel sorry for you guys and I guess you are destined to pouting in the corner mumbling LB Sucks to yourselves.

Agree. Not bad when you consider our two best players couldn't hit a shot. We had the open looks but they just weren't falling. Bummed we missed an opportunity as they were without Jennings but can't complain about the effort.

We need at least a split next week otherwise we may be scrambling just to get into the BW Tourney.

Hey LBSparky, thanks for not coming on here and rubbing it in.

The scoreboard is a coaches decision. I think the idea was that Andy rightfully wanted to stress that this is a team game and with three high-scoring players, didn't want them watching their scoreboard. His original idea was to put up assists and rebounds but I guess that's not possible, which is hard to imagine, but at CSF we make everything the impossible so who really knows.

We will take a huge hit if Andy does not come back considering our lack of money and facilities. Like I said in another post, he knows the winning formula for our school and there's no reason to change it up and with their (Burton/Newman) record of graduating players, recruiting and winning, why change that? It's been a tough year for Andy, starting with the needless suspension. I truly hope everything is taken into account when the times comes.

Sparky, very well said.

"I feel sorry for you guys and I guess you are destined to pouting in the corner mumbling LB Sucks to yourselves."

I think that the 49'ers have some things to envy - some community support (hardly GREAT in a city of 470k residents); a nice facility (however the real pyramids filled their unused space with granite, the blue pyramid merely has a lot of air); and lately, a good schedule every year.

However, to appear pompous when all LB basketball is really, is just being the tallest midget...seems a bit over the top.

PS - It's hard enough to bet on you guys anytime.  If you get to the NCAA's this year, please try not to get hammered by 40 points again.

I miss the old gun-toting, drug-dealing Niners of yore.

Just a nostalgic old man.

You might find this hard to believe; but, I find it complimentary that so many teams in the BW hate us. If I was a Titan fan, I would really hate that you guys chant "LB sucks" at every game against every opponent. It demeans what you are about IMHO. Titan basketball should be about Fullerton, not about hating LB. As far as LB being the tallest midget, I will enjoy it as much as I can. I remember the Larry Reynolds/ Wayne Morgan years too well, when we were one of the shorter midgets. My outlook on the BW is also a bit different than yours; Sagarin rates us as the #15 conference and I think it is a more accurate system than the RPI. Even the RPI had the BW as the 3!3 or #14 league at the end of the OOC part of the schedule. We did not all of the sudden become a much worse league when conference play started; but, that is what the RPI would have you believe. #15 out of 33 leagues is middle of the road, not scraping the bottom of the barrel. The BW is not the giants of college basketball; but, we are not midgets either.

Despite your recent struggles, I think a win over you guys is something to be proud of. We faced you without our center and beat you at your own game on your own court. The Titans have arguably on of the best back courts on the West Coast and out guards and wings beat your guards and wings. Looking forward to the rematch at the Mid.

But it's been scientifically proven that Long Beach Sucks.

Are we supposed to deny fact?

Even if it were true, it should not define Fullerton. I know I am crazy; I respect Titan athletics more than you guys do.

respect?  thanks.
but, I would think you would have enough "respect" not to go visit someone's board and yap about your accomplishments...or brag about winning without your center, when the other team is missing 3 of it's 4 biggets players.

I said I respect Titan athletics, not love them. I hate you the freaking F hats

Late add: I respect your team and I respect what I think your program ought to be. I have far less respect for the second rate way your program is underfunded and defined by your inferiority complex.
