re: Fleck, 13-0 - Housplants
[quote]He's a good coach but MAC vs SEC is no comparison. He needs to prove himself at a mid major before coming to the SEC.[/quote] Really...has our new head coach done that? He hasn't even done that at the sub-mid-major level....

re: How much do HCs improve...data inside - Housplants
A question Sport Tiger: How many of the guys on that list went from being a head coach to being a journeyman DL coach, and then showed great improvement in their 2nd job having never even been a coordinator? I think you might be using faulty statistics to try and make you point....

re: Changes at LSU, Texas, Oregon show teams' changing priorities - Housplants
[quote]So Miles won with Saban players and couldn't win with his, now O will win Miles player but not with his...I hope this is sarcasim[/quote] He lost the only losable games on our schedule after he took over this year. I think it could be said that he made a couple of obvious changes that allo...

re: Who is smarter: Joe Alleva or Les Miles? - Housplants
Great idea. Lets hire the most stubborn human alive to be our AD. We have watched him ride 3-legged horses at the expense of our football program for many years (Cameron, multiple ineffective QBs, Paveto, etc.). I can only imagine how long he would stick with an unsuccessful coach that he hir...

re: What if we can't hire an elite OC? - Housplants
[quote]What if he does hire an excellent OC and they're successful? I'd start a thread asking that, but positive questions aren't allowed here [/quote] Having to hire great coordinators is not a recipe for success in anything but the short term. If your coordinators are good enough that you ha...

re: College Football is Big Business - Housplants
[quote]It's more difficult to take over someone else's team than build your own from scratch. [/quote] I could not disagree more strongly with this. [quote]I want to see a CEO team that built from scratch.[/quote] I have already seen this when he was at Ole Miss. And, BTW, recruiting was no...

re: Forget about whether or not O was the right hire, is he overpaid? - Housplants
[quote]And, its all because Allleva is an idiot, and O is just a Cajun know nothing. Feel better? God damn some folks are only happy if they are bitching.[/quote] Wow, you put lots of words in my mouth. Why don't you tell me how anything I wrote was wrong. Orgeron has never been a coordinator...

re: Forget about whether or not O was the right hire, is he overpaid? - Housplants
[quote]man you are really lost. There is a lot more to being a head coach than just recruiting coordinating.[/quote] This is exactly why many LSU fans are very upset that O was hired as the head coach. Because he has never successfully done those other things that you reference, he is highly ov...

re: Derek Ponamsky - House of Cards - Housplants
[quote]Seriously. Did you really want Larry Fedora or Mike Gundy?[/quote] Before a journeyman DL coach? Absolutely. I would have taken a top level offensive coordinator over a DL coach that has never been a coordinator, any day of the week....

re: Most people that don't like the Coach O hire are recent LSU fans. - Housplants
Been an LSU Football fan for nearly 50 years. This is the worst head coaching hire I have ever seen...in any sport. I love Orgeron as a DL coach, recruiter, and motivator. LSU could have had all of those benefits by keeping him as a highly paid DL coach/recruiting coordinator. LSU football has...

re: Why do you O supporters tout offensive records and then say he needs a real oc? - Housplants
In his only stint as an actual head coach, he lost to almost everyone he played in the SEC. He won 3 SEC games in 3 years. I think I should translate for you: Our new head coach averaged winning one SEC game/year....

re: Who will O hire as Defensive Coordinator? - Housplants
[quote]If Herman and Aranda were so tight he could have brought him to Houston.[/quote] Are you reading what you type? Hermann could have lured Aranda from Wisconsin or LSU to be DC at Houston? Wow. If Hermann does take the job at Texas, it will not be easy for LSU to keep Aranda....

re: Poll: If Fisher and Herman are unavailable, who do you want as head coach? - Housplants
[quote]no way you hire Aranda (no head coaching experience at all) over O[/quote] All I can say is WOW. Orgeron has never been a coordinator and being the worst head coach in the history of Ole Miss gives him an edge over a terrific defensive coordinator because he has no head coaching experie...

re: How does Coach O keep Aranda? - Housplants
Orgeron would not be able to keep Aranda. Aranda is very marketable, and he will not be at LSU long if we hire a DL coach to be our head coach. It says plenty that Orgeron's name has never been mentioned for any other head coaching jobs since he was at Ole Miss (an interest stemming from inter...

re: Joe Alleva and deputy ADs walk into Texas A&M stadium - Housplants
[quote]Coach O would not be a bad hire if we can't get Herman or Jimbo[/quote] It would not be a bad hire...it would be a catastrophic hire. A top 5 program hiring a coach that not one other team is seeking to hire as their head coach would be indescribably weak....

re: Some perspective - Housplants
[quote]What the frick are you talking about? [/quote] Not too hard to understand. He has recruited all of the QBs on his roster, and he is left having to play a freshman QB. He apparently has not recruited the position as well as he would have liked. So, I do not think you can give him a pass o...

re: Some perspective - Housplants
How about a little more perspective: (1) Herman is coaching a Houston and has made them a relevant program. Once it was clear that they will not be joining the Big 12, his players knew he would definitely be leaving Houston after the season. Reasonable to think that this has impacted his team's p...

re: If Tre White doesn't have a mental error - Housplants
[quote]He's the reason for all 10 points yesterday. [/quote] Don't blame White for his fumbled punt. The coaches keep putting him back there despite the fact that he is fundamentally a terrible punt returner. He is very unsure fielding punts, and lets about half of them drop, fielding them on the...
