re: Why would a proven coach at a power 5 conference leave for LSU? - Ghost of Colby
[quote]Why would a coach want to have to win the SEC to make the playoff[/quote] Bama won a National championship just a few years ago without even winning the SEC. [quote]You don't want your conference to be talented from top to bottom. Clemson had no problem making the playoff having to bea...

re: Name the jobs that are better than LSU - Ghost of Colby
Louisiana is an outlier. Georgia produces much more talent than Louisiana, but it also has schools from all over raiding the state. LSU has a huge advantage being the only P5 school in a small state that produces a ton of talent. ...

re: Name the jobs that are better than LSU - Ghost of Colby
It's all subjective. What requirements are needed for a job to be considered highly regarded? Does a school have to meet all the requirements? Do coaches have a different list of requirements than the public? People are going to list Alabama near the top of the list, but no way would I want to follo...

re: Will LSU become Tennessee post-Fulmer, or Ohio State post-Tressel? - Ghost of Colby
What was UTk thinking when they hired Kiffen? I understand he left them in a bind when he left for USC, but to follow that hire up with Dooley was gross incompetence. LSU could hire the 20th coach on their list & it would still be better than those two. ...

re: Pete Jenkins Welcome Back! - Ghost of Colby
Just found out he also came out of retirement in 2013 to take over the DL at USC when Orgeron was appointed interim HC. ...

re: Who Were Other Options at the Time Other Than Miles? - Ghost of Colby
Completely forgot RC Slocum was a candidate. His name came out of nowhere. Most people didn't believe the rumor, then it was confirmed he actually interviewed. ...

re: So what's the LSU-Les relationship moving forward? - Ghost of Colby
I think he stays in BR for awhile, and a good chance he retires here. He's done coaching, but will probably get a studio gig. I think Les would love to travel around the country with Gameday. ...

re: As much as I like Orgeron on staff.... - Ghost of Colby
My dream scenario is LSU finishes the season strong, Coach O receives a ton of credit for it, and is offered a head coach position at another P5 school, just not LSU. ...

re: Austin Thomas - LSU's GM now over recruiting - Ghost of Colby
Perfect title for him. He's not a coach, but he isn't solely on the administration side either. He's invaluable at what he does & deserves it. ...

re: Herman is the #2, Jimbo is the #1, Kiffin's rep is still radioactive - Ghost of Colby
[quote]Serious Question: Why would Herman be #2?[/quote] I'm only guessing, but maybe experience. He's in the middle of only his second season as a head coach & Houston was ok when he got there. They were coming off of back to back 8-5 s seasons. Also, maybe there is some concern about getting in...

re: Legit Replacement Candidates for Les Miles - Ghost of Colby
Mike MacIntyre is intriguing from the 2nd tier candidates. He coached under Parcells in Dallas, and he supposedly really liked him. Parcells took him under his wing and they had a tutor/mentor relationship. Eric Mangini left the Patriots to become the HC of the Jets the same year Parcells retired ag...

re: STAN @ UW, Fri 8 CT - Ghost of Colby
Huge game for both. Still early in the season, but they are the two best teams in the PAC-12. The UW schedule looks a lot easier now than it did at the beginning of the season. WSU, Oregon, USC aren't nearly as good as they were expected to be. They do have to play Utah & ASU from the south division...

re: this probably doesn't belong here either,but it is a kind of serious question - Ghost of Colby
That was a long time ago, but I would. Did you, or anyone else, relay that story to the family at the time? He was at peace in his final moments & he expressed love for his kids. I'm not passing judgement, but that's the kind of thing that really should be told to his family at the time. Not necess...
