Cholly Mac sucked and it reflects poorly on LSU fans that they revere him so much. It shows how they were content with mediocrity.
Mac is revered for what he did for this program at a time when Alabama was the SEC. Like the OU-Nebraska domination of the Big 8, but by just one team. Yeah - we couldn't get over he hump. But it was a helluva hump.
He was a very good coach and was a Tiger to his core. Revise history and tell me who'd have done better. Hired gun? Ask Florida fans how they feel about Urbs. Hell - ask really old Tiger fans how they felt about Pepsodent Paul bailing on LSU for a better program.
Mac is as much a part of LSU as Saban, Miles, and the next guy to come along and win a national championship, or two. It reflects poorly on those of our fan base who don't get this.
