Regardless of what you think of any of these coaches...it’s really a good idea to not have salary/contract issues on their minds during upcoming season. Peace of mind..even though just for an extra year...is a good think. It’s not like it’s 3 or 4 years.

Good! I’m glad Steve gets to stick around for a few more years, hopefully, to mentor Brady. He has always put LSU first and has always been very loyal to LSU. Not to mention that the players absolutely love him. Meanwhile, if the offense does as well as I have a feeling it will do in 2019, he’ll inevitably end up getting a raise next year and another extension. Indeed, that will piss off all of the second-guessers.

Give all the football coaches money to Will Wade. He’s actually has a good chance to win a title. Football program is a joke. It’s cute. You guys get all excited in August only to get arse raped in November. It happens every year.

Well don't support football then. Some of you nitwits make stupid statements like you just made but you look like a moron when you do. Like it or not, Orgeron has LSU on an upward trajectory. Fans like you were tearing LSU down before last season but Orgeron and company went out and did what they needed to do to get LSU where they could be very competitive. Les Miles had left LSU in a poor situation particularly at QB. Orgeron went out and looked at transfers and came up with Joe Burrow. He needed a kicker and brought in Cole Tracy. LSU played one of the toughest schedules in the country last year and beat Miami, Auburn, Mississippi State, and UGA. LSU finished the season 10-3, ranked #6, and won a NY6 Bowl. Orgeron currently is tearing it up on the cruiting trail with a class ranked #3 in the country following a #6 ranked class last year. That is hardly a joke.

People in the real world get raises all the time for much less. Hell, many don’t even do that well at their job and get a raise nevertheless.

It was those 10 wins and a NY6 Bowl Victory with over 1/2 the Defense missing that earned an extra year.

Cregg is worth 10k a year.

Coach E is better than a lot of people give home credit. He had plans for a much more wide open offense last year, but his plans were hampered by suspensions and injuries. That’s why he had to keep Moreau (and RBs) in to block all year.

Interesting that these guys get an extension now. What exactly have they shown for it? The OL looked atrocious last year and they didn't seem to get better like Grimes' OL would over the course of the year. Another year to prove himself would be better. And where is Corey Raymond's extension if we want to give the old "for recruiting" excuse. Doesn't his contract expire next year?

Not only does Cregg not deserve an extension, he needs a reduction in pay.
Reply18 days
In what world? The consistency he brought to an OL that had literally a different starting rotation, through no fault of Cregg’s, for the first half of the season was incredible.

None of these people have shown anything to deserve extensions. It's a sad day when you are not held accountable for your performances. They very well may earn them this season, but none of them has earned it to date while at LSU in my opinion.

I liked the Auburn game. I like it not for the number but the timing of LSU's attack and the ability to deliver huge plays under pressure. They looked good in a quality way on that day. Wins in AU's stadium are rare.

I had hoped that the days of unwarranted contract extensions and/or pay raises were over now that Alleva is gone.

10-3. Number 6 in nation. NY6 Bowl win. That isn't "nothing".

Interesting about Ensminger getting an extension. I think we all thought he was grooming Brady to take over in 2020. Maybe they’ll make them co-OCs or something and continue the mentoring a 2nd year. While Brady has a much more modern, exciting, and—hopefully—effective system than Ensminger, ol’ Steve has seen a lot of SEC football and is a good and much more experienced play caller. There will be times when he doesn’t use Brady’s plays, and I’m assuming there will be a dialogue on what each were thinking. If it’s effective this year, I like continuing the relationship for another year as long as Brady is on board. But they might have to bump him up to Co-OC like I mentioned earlier and give him a raise. We’ll see.

I'm open to liberal or conservative coaching authority as a system. Liberal representing coequal coaching decision makers. I am in philosophy someone groomed by old coaches LSU (McClendon) Alabama (Bear) coaches which both used two QB's and ofen split coaching duties as well.
