Great idea. Lets hire the most stubborn human alive to be our AD.

I can only imagine how long he would stick with an unsuccessful coach that he hir...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

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.

re: How does Coach O keep Aranda? - Housplants on 11/25/16 at 2:42 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
