While I understand your point about Wisconsin, let's also remember Wisconsin plays in a division with Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue, and Illinois. Nebraska is the only team on that list that could/should be competing on the field with Wisconsin consistently, and even they have s...

After a quick read about the situation, seems overboard to suspend the players. Also seems overboard for players to boycott. I predict cooler heads prevail and suspensions are lifted and bowl game is played. After everything cools down though wouldn't surprise me if a few players were told to hit...

re: Herman to LSU sauces. TIFWIW. Entertainment Value - JPLSU1981 on 12/15/16 at 3:06 am
If true, Frick Tom Herman for being a bitch. Frick Alleva for not having the patience to take a deep breath and regroup. There was no need to immediately turn to O within hours. O wasn't going anywhere. It's over and done now, time to move on. Alleva handled the situation poorly, but O pro...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

No, not a good hire ... but he will consistently beat everyone in the SEC besides Bama. And who knows, maybe he'll knock off Bama every now and again....

We'll be fine... we're in better shape Game1 2017 under O than we would be under Miles. I didn't like the O hire, but our program has improved relative to Miles IMO. Personally I think Alleva deserves to lose his job, but I actually do feel pretty confident that O will have success at LSU....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Honestly I'm not too stressed about the LSU OC search... whether it's Kiffin or not, LSU is gonna get a top-flight OC on the $$$ alone. While O may or may not have been the right move at HC (that's done and pointless in debating any longer) in my opinion it basically assured us of landing a top ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Just guessing, but he's under contract at Bama, so it wouldn't shock me if he's been told that he will be honoring his contract or face some severe consequences, contractually and otherwise. I'm sure there's also motivation on his part to get another national title. Can't hurt the resume for down...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Again, I'm not saying we have an OC, but if it is indeed Kiffin there are certainly reasons that it wouldn't be announced yet. Some reasons being contractually-related. I have no idea if it's Kiffin or not, but all signs certainly point to that. And if you assume it's him, then it makes 100% sens...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Is money the only factor for getting the OC we want? - JPLSU1981 on 12/10/16 at 5:35 pm
At $2mil a year for an OC, yeah you can pretty much just point to who you want and get him. The big question is who do they want. Kiffin is a tad different given his situation, but the vast majority of college OCs out there would jump at $2mil and LSU....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

LOL at your support and interest in LSU football. It's one thing to be in the middle of LSU HC search threads, I can understand that, but to also be in the middle of LSU OC threads should tell you something about yourself. FWIW, when Bama is looking for an OC, just let me know who you guys hir...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Why not go after sark - JPLSU1981 on 12/10/16 at 11:38 am
Just a hunch... there's obviously something going on with reports out of Bama that neither Kiffin or Sark will be back. And then the reports out of Bama that Sark fell off the wagon. Almost like Bama found something out (them going to LSU) and now trying to slander them. Or getting ahead of the n...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

There's not odds out on LSUs OC search, but I'd imagine Kiffin would be by far the odds favorite at the moment. Anyone that thinks it can't happen are just being silly, of course it can and might.., at the moment, it appears pretty likely....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
