re: Changes at LSU, Texas, Oregon show teams' changing priorities - kdbroom
[quote]Les was 10-10 against the SEC West the last 3+ years.[/quote] True, but that isn't "failure", and it cherry-picks the details that help tell the story you prefer. Why only look at SEC West games? Why not all SEC games? Why not all games? Why only look at the last three years? Why igno...

re: Changes at LSU, Texas, Oregon show teams' changing priorities - kdbroom
[quote]We want continuity of a failed regime[/quote] It wasn't a failed regime, unless you set the bar so high that anything other than winning SEC and National Championships is deemed "failure". Les Miles fielded a very competitive, talented team that represented the university well for over a ...

re: Les Miles landing spot? - kdbroom
[quote] No harm in doing some TV work in the meantime.[/quote] The OP said "see how that goes", which implies that it might be the start of a new career in broadcasting. That doesn't meet the intent of a "good faith effort" to find a new coaching job. [quote]many of you guys are underestimati...

re: Miles and a hard dose of reality - kdbroom
[quote]Any job I believe.[/quote] I think it's just coaching jobs, which are normally well paying jobs. The intent of the clause is to minimize the buyout expense to LSU. Otherwise, he could simply take a 1-hour per week burger-flipping job and pocket all of the buyout payments....

re: Les Miles landing spot? - kdbroom
[quote]If Les is smart he will try out TV during the college football bowl season as a guest contributor and see how that goes.[/quote] If he goes this route, he loses his buyout payments. He has to make a good faith effort to find another coaching job....

[quote]Ask a Bama fan how those hires (Dubose, Shula) worked out. [/quote] Revisionist history there on Shula. He was an off-cycle hire after Bama went outside of the family to hire Mike Price, only to have that hire turn out to be a big mistake. Shula was willing to take over the team at a ver...

re: ****update 8:10*** Don't shoot the Messenger - kdbroom
If we can't land Herman or Fisher, or another big-name coach, I'd be fine with keeping Coach O at a reduced salary. I wouldn't expect LSU to implode under his leadership. In the worst-case scenario, I suspect LSU would remain about the same as now (above average, winning, but not elite). If that ...

re: The Mike Archer hire - kdbroom
The players supported him, but the LSU decision makers also wanted to maintain continuity with a young, promising coach and a successful staff. It was a gamble, but not a wing-and-a-prayer gamble. It's not much different than when other good programs hired from within and were successful with prom...
