re: Hypocrisy of those who denigrate Dale Brown's accomplishments - nitwit
I, Too, loved to watch Dale's good teams, even knowing they weren't well coached. He was a great recruiter, motivator and was ever loyal to his players. No one at LSU was ever more successful. He was also right about the NCAA. Alas, he also cheated...(I know. We're not supposed to admit that pa...

re: Hypocrisy of those who denigrate Dale Brown's accomplishments - nitwit
This is a stunning string of non sequiturs. Yes, you were the one who directly ( attempted to) contradict the assertion that " Miles was not a great game day coach". I asked you to elaborate. Your evasion says a great deal about that, despite your weak offer that "he had his shining moments". Yes,...

He was just not a coach worthy of that honor. Great recruiter, great promoter. Always questions about NCAA compliance even in the old days. Had great players, less frequently great teams. Good guy, tho'...

re: Why Alleva has the benefit of the doubt from me. - nitwit
Any new head coach hire has to be evaluated in terms of both money and opportunity cost. Also, it has to be evaluated in terms of not just dollars and opportunity but in YEARS of commitment, the last of which is arguably the most important for a successful program. If The Orgeron is NOT successful,...

re: Did Dale Brown get a lot of other job offers while he was at LSU? - nitwit
Dale was a great recruiter and motivator. If you want to convince somebody he was a great BB coach, you're wasting your time. I would actually enjoy reading that argument and knowing that is the effort of the same author who tried to scold someone for using sarcasm on the Rant. Good luck, Don Qu...

If Johnny Jones' history reflects the benefits of hiring diversity, it may be a time to give diversity a rest and rely on some other hiring criteria. Like race-neutral competence. ...

re: Credit where credit is due - praise Alleva here - nitwit
Actually, the process was pretty screwed up. It looked like there were two names, probably inadequately vetted for interest, and that was it. The only other plan appeared to be panic and a timely binder. For a project that was months in development, it was not pretty. ...

re: Credit where credit is due - praise Alleva here - nitwit
I have new data points. I understand we paid $2.5m, which ain't cheap. Those of us (I am one) who blame Alleva/ F. King for seeking coaches on the cheap, must acknowledge that he/they did not do so here, although we certainly could have offered more to other candidates. (on the other hand, this f...

re: Credit where credit is due - praise Alleva here - nitwit
I am prepared to give credit to Alleva on the hire as soon as I know more. I think Wade is a good choice, so I know what Alleva bought, but I do not know what he paid for it. What are the terms? do we know? Maybe others have seen this information, but I have not. Until this data is available I d...

re: Alleva is a liability - nitwit
Some people want to take both sides of the ALLEVA hire of The Orgeron. On the one hand they think it is a great hire, which will return LSU to elite status. If so, you should be a HUGE Alleva fan. He saw a head coach talent that nobody else in the country saw, and hired him at a fraction of the s...
