the death of Bo Rein plays a major part in this. Set the program back 20 years probably
Rein dies. Stovall hired as emergency. Stovall was a great recruiter- the rest meh
Broadhead comes in and cans Stovall, bringing in Arnsbarger who was a fine coach, did not like the recruiting part of CFB
BA wanted to become AD at LSU. Power play between those two results in Archer. good man, decent DC but too young at the time. Wasn't a bad hire, most agreed with keeping that mid 80s run going.
LA was different then as well. The rules did not assist LSU or Archer.
Hallman's hiring was suppose to be about "discipline"....remember the put your earrings in a box and send them to mama crap???
Hallman was the worst coach in LSU history, hired by the cheapest AD in history.
He actually thought he deserved a 5th year. Thank goodness only 50k showed for his last home game and they pulled the plug.
Dinardo did good things but was too micro-manager kind style and did not delegate well.
all these guys came cheap. LSU started winning when money was loosened up but all of the nonsense would not have occurred if Rein had lived. He was THE hot head coach and was a great pick by Dietzel. Too bad we never got to see him make LSU the program that it is today.
I've always felt if Bo had lived, those 20 years would have been so different....1980-2000.....20 years of crazy and bad decisions
I think faneca was from Houston.
LSU was never going to hire Steve, he was unproven at the time and the players along with Bill wanted Archer.
DiNardo started to get things going, but he hired Lou Tepper as defensive coordinator and our defense under Sweet Lou was abysmal. DiNardo never recovered.
1. Hiring Archer (no head coaching experience) over Darth Visor (who had just lead DUKE to an ACC title!).
just think he he doesn't go full retard and stopped letting Jamie Howard throw passes vs Auburn
Oh the other player Archer lost out on was Baron Jackson, my high school English teacher's son, who went to Pitt.
Technically - just less than four years? Didn't like Hal Hunter coach the last game of the '99 season vs Arky (whom we trounced to improve to 3-8)?
quote:Remember, Lynn Amedee was right there calling the plays vs Auburn. Curley just stood back and did nothing.
just think he he doesn't go full retard and stopped letting Jamie Howard throw passes vs Auburn, he might have gotten it.
