"You don't fire Les Miles to hire a guy like Coach O" - Manswers
That's what I keep hearing from my friends here in Michigan. I reply, "I know. I don't know what to say, especially since they stopped negotiating with other candidates after one week."...

re: Does LSU have a realistic shot at playoff next year - Manswers
I assume you mean "what is the likelihood LSU makes the playoff next year." To do that LSU cannot lose more than 2 games but realistically, just 1. Theoretically, LSU could make the playoff still losing to Bama but it's been 5 years since we've had less than 3 losses. Therefore, I say the likelih...

re: I find it very concerning that aranda hasn't finalized a contract - Manswers
This is the sort of uncertainty folks are going to have to live with having O as the coach. With Saban, people were always worried about him leaving. With Coach O, it will always be about talented coordinators like Aranda leaving. Like I said when O's hiring was announced - people are comfortable...

Aranda comes across like Coach K at Duke. He's a pretty good coach (granted BB v. FB, but still)....

re: Per Shea: Aranda has signed contract extension with LSU - Manswers
If Texas has to pay Strong his money which is only offset by his new salary, why wouldn't LSU and Strong simply agree to a $50K/yr salary (or whatever the minimum is to not be actionable under Strong's Texas contract) and let Texas fully pay? Strong gets to fly under the radar, be a part of LSU's st...

re: Per Shea: Aranda has signed contract extension with LSU - Manswers
That's perfect for LSU, then. If Alabama is doing this with Sarkisian, LSU should really push for this with the understanding that Aranda is the man until he decides otherwise. The beginning of the end for Dinardo is when he let Carl Reese go to Texas and hired the DC who will never be named on t...

re: Where does Charlie Strong go next? - Manswers
Can we hire him as a position coach? It'd be good to go 2-deep at DC for when Aranda leaves. Hopefully that's at least a few years from now but we don't know....

re: Why would Kiffin ever come to LSU - Manswers
Exactly. At the end of the day all Alleva has done is hand the team over to Orgeron. Nothing else is in place. ...

re: LACK OF CONTROL fuels your FEAR which creates your ANXIETY - Manswers
Assuming your post is not some sort of psycho-babble troll, I can tell you have never given anyone legal advice or negotiated a large business transaction. LSU fans have every right to be upset not just with the result (Coach O as HC, OC to be named later, Elite DC not nailed down), but with the pro...

re: It does not sound like Aranda is completely in - Manswers
[quote]This is what hasn't upset me from the jump. These are real possibilities to be considered during this search. We've demonstrated that we are no longer a professionally run program. We are a political machine that promotes based on who you know, not what you know. [/quote] Yes. You nail...

re: So Euax is $1M cheaper than Miles, but DC & OC are $2M than before? - Manswers
That's why LSU should have countered both Fisher and Herman. They could have countered for 6 or 7 with scaled payments (+ or -) after 5 years based on performance. There is no reason they should have ended negotiations. Make Fisher and Herman do that....

re: We Fired Les Due to Apathy and a Divided Fan Base - Manswers
A record of 9-3 is the ceiling for Coach O. After a few years we will likely be a 5 or 6 win team rather than an 8 or 9 win team....

re: So we might have O, Aranda and Kiffin For the price of Jimbo? - Manswers
I think the difference between O + elite staff and Jimbo/Herman + expected staff is under $2M/yr. Probably $9M total vs. $7.5M total. Even if we get our best case scenario with Kiffin as OC and Aranda as DC no other team would take Coach O over Fisher or Herman. When you add the fact that we don'...
