College Football reporter Bruce Feldman appeared on the "Rich Eisen Show" Monday and was asked about why Ed Orgeron wasn't hired full-time as USC's head coach back in 2013.

According to Feldman, the USC decision-makers "couldn't get past what Ed Orgeron sounded like." Per 247Sports:
quote:

“I think what you have is a guy who has continued to evolve,” Feldman said. “He made a huge jump from when he was at Ole Miss to when he was at USC. I think he’s made a significant jump after that, but I really think it’s a USC issue. You have a lot of people at USC, especially during the Pat Haden regime, who couldn’t get past what Ed Orgeron sounded like. They didn’t listen to the players. They didn’t listen to the staff. At the end of the day, Ed Oregeron is not a country club guy. I think he can relate to just about anyone. The Governor of Louisiana was waiting outside the locker room. He’s very street smart, and I think that’s one of the things that made him a very good recruiter. He can read people very well. I don’t think Pat Haden, who was the decision maker at the time, that’s just not the type of guy he wanted. I don’t think he could get past it.”

Well in fairness, he does sound like Willie from swamp people. You need subtitles.

Frick USC...I actually was rooting for them to Keep O as he certainly warranted an opportunity in 2013.

Even Coach O says he wasn’t ready yet. Didn’t know it then but he learned that at Ole Miss. Attributes a lot of his learning to his experience at Miami.

Coach O wasn’t ready in Oxford but had he gotten the interim label removed and been named the legit USC HC, Orgeron would be ruling the PAC 12 as I type this. There‘s no doubt in my mind. Those stuck up snobs in LA really messed up bad.

I completely understand. USC only associates with upstanding citizens like OJ Simpson.

Since Choach O's time there, they are 50-27 with their last bowl game win being in 2016's Rose Bowl. They've improved from last season where they were 5-7, but I agree with your statement

So discrimination is ok if the guy you’re doing it to is white. Gotcha.

Exactly. USC sounds like a bunch of racist bigots.

Why did most of LSU folks want Herman instead EdO? Because us local yokels were prejudiced too. We wanted someone who was suave looking and talking, not the country bumpkin we thought Ed O was perceived to be. In fact, so many in local media would dismiss BeBe, until recently.

Do you think they would be willing to hire him now? They could hire a translator to make him intelligible to Southern Californians. I kid. If they ever did make him an offer you can bet his reply would be perfectly understood by all. USCFU!!!! Geaux Tigahs!!!

The current USC administration is too stupid to hire anyone right now. I've always liked Coach O, and still pull for him at LSU. I'm not the only Trojan that feels this way.
