re: Hiring of Coach O eerily similar to Clemson's hiring of Dabo - epbart
Not an unreasonable comparison. I'm not ecstatic over hiring Orgeron. But I see the possibility of a similar trajectory as Dabo... which, in truth, is good. National titles every year is unlikely-- especially in the SECw. But if the offense can be raised to a similar level as the defense... and t...

I've used lens.com before. Prices are good (not sure if the best). Service is good. Last time I looked, 1800contacts was twice as expensive....

re: Can someone summarise what Briles did exactly? - epbart
There's a 3 page thread which has more info than this one at this point. [link=(http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/coaching-changes/someone-please-explain-to-me-how-briles-was-the-baylor-scapegoat/67317214/)]LINK[/link] I posted my bit on page 3. Summary: he only appears to have definitely...

re: Someone please explain to me how Briles was the Baylor scapegoat - epbart
[quote]Hangit[/quote] Not sure of your source, but most of that sounds reasonable-- if true. Though that article I quoted (admittedly, it's SBNation), states he didn't notify the school’s judicial-affairs office. I'm assuming the judicial committee you mention would be the same? ...

re: Someone please explain to me how Briles was the Baylor scapegoat - epbart
I haven't fully read up on it or seen the 60 minutes bit. From what I know, some of the instances were handled (mis-handled) by people under him and it is questionable if he knew. Here is one recent article supporting that claim: [link=(http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2016/10/28/13460...

re: We should just go all "bad guy/villain" - epbart
[quote]frick it. Hire Kiffin, Briles as consultant like Sark, 50 shadow staff people pumping out propaganda, and slimy recruiters at every position. Might as well at this point. [/quote] Sometimes it's fun to play the heel. :geauxtigers:...

re: Clay Travis on Coach O hire - epbart
[quote]He is spot on. [/quote] Meh, not really. Seriously, he's undoubtedly been reading this site (The Rant/Coaching Changes/SEC Rant) and got his material here. Then he wrote a stupid opinion piece to echo the loud contingent that's been mocking the choice and made it sound like his own opi...

re: Can we lose Grimes and pick up Mawae - epbart
[quote]Mawae cant recruit, it's the only why reason Grimes wont be fired [/quote] He was elected a couple of times to be president of the NFL Players Association. That shows a certain level of being liked... or at least respected, plus the ability to understand politics, communicate and be persu...

re: Relying on great assistant coaches is a recipe for disaster - epbart
[quote]What happens when Coach O loses Aranda? And Kiffin (If we even get him)?[/quote] If... and it's a big if... Orgeron can retain Aranda for another two years or so, and if he gets a really good OC and keeps LSU in the top 10 over this stretch (or top 15 at a minimum), then it's likely Orgero...

re: Should coach O reach out to Kevin Mawae? - epbart

Get the whole gang here.[/quote] This kind of sarcasm doesn't make a lot of sense when you consider that Mawae was very inte...

re: Firing Les Miles to hire Ed Orgeron is totally unacceptable - epbart
I really wanted Miles to turn things around over the past few years, but it was pretty apparent The Decline was real and program was starting to unravel under his stewardship. It was time for Miles to go. Period. Alleva, etc. did not fire Miles to hire Orgeron-- even if they end up settling for ...

re: LSU and Ed Orgeron need each other, regardless of how this turns out - epbart
bump Nobody who is of the "Screw Orgeron" camp seems to want to elaborate beyond stating he's lobbying for the job-- which should be expected. It wouldn't make sense for him to not lobby for it. Again, I say this as someone who would be happier with Herman or Jimbo. (Orgeron has proved he can...

[quote]he's playing politics to divide the LSU fanbase for his own personal gains/desires i don't hate him for it, but it's very slimey, esp since he won't stay here if we hire another coach (and we probably can't keep him now b/c of his behavior) [/quote] I posted this in another thread: ...
