Last week, Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports suggested that Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher is Scott Woodward's top target to be LSU's next head coach.

This week it's National College Football reporter Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports who agrees that Fisher is at the top of Woodward's wish list.

Thamel thinks that "LSU job is the most attractive on the market," and if it is not Fisher, Woodward could target James Franklin, Luke Fickell, Dave Aranda, Lane Kiffin or Mel Tucker.
quote:

The LSU job is the most attractive on the market. And that’s not expected to change, regardless of any other movement. Until another coach is walked to the podium at the news conference by athletic director Scott Woodward, it’s safe to project Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher as the target here. That’s always been Woodward’s dream candidate, and his history of paying historic amounts for Fisher is the best empirical evidence of that desire. Who from there? The names are all familiar – James Franklin, Luke Fickell, Dave Aranda, Lane Kiffin and Mel Tucker. If it’s not Fisher, the name will be big and the price tag expensive. Expect the LSU-Texas A&M game to end the season in Baton Rouge to be a quintessential SEC spectacle.

Would you be happy if LSU hired Jimbo Fisher? Sound off in the comment section.

It will be a step backward to hire the AD’s friend. Bum Philips use to say that “Your friends will get you fired”….I can’t believe LSU can’t do better than that has been named Jimbo. His best days are behind him.

I say we take him, as long as he picks up the nickname Jimbeaux.

Woody is going to throw a 15 year contract at Jimbo. He’s coming to LSU.

It would never happen. Political correctness will shut that down with the quickness. But, LSU could do a LOT worse than bringing in the only other HC to have ever won NCs at multiple schools besides the magical, midget Gump.

So, knowing Scott Woodward, it's going to be a name that wasn't mentioned at all.

Jimbo wouldn’t be my first choice, but I don’t understand the melt about him.

I do not either. The guy has lost 35 games in 12 years as an HC. That includes early losses at TAMU (9 in first 2 seasons) when he was building it up to get to the point they are now, which is very good. TAMU has lost 3 games, the 2 years including wins against #1 Gumps this year and #4 Florida last year. Anyone who thinks he would not rock and roll here is crazy. I think a lot of people are still butt hurt about 2016. He is not my #1 either, that would be Lincoln, but Jimbo would roll here too.

Thamel is the writer who did that hit piece on the Honey Badger years ago. Don’t trust him.

So Woodward and boosters are going to pay out Os entire staff and then pay the Aggies some crazy amount, likely ~90 million and pay Jimbo and his staff MORE money to coach here? I think if you look at just the numbers on this deal there’s very little chance we get the ROI we hope for. Don’t buy that he’s our choice unless there’s something I’m not seeing.

They do not have to buy out Jimbo. He does not have a buy out if he leaves on his own.

Why would we pay anything to A&M? He has no buy out. SO what would be the ROI issue ?
