LSU head coach Ed Orgeron was asked Monday about the firing of former Florida head coach Jim McElwain and why college coaching has become more volatile in the last few years? Here's what he had to say.
quote:

QUESTION: I'm sure you know Jim McElwain got let go at Florida. Why do you think college coaching has become more volatile in the last few years? In the SEC, do you think that has something to do with the fact that Alabama has had so much success, and everyone is saying, You have to be on that level?

ED ORGERON: I haven't thought about it that much, to be honest with you. I was on the road recruiting Friday. Was with my kids Saturday. I don't know when he got fired. Somebody told me that yesterday morning, today, whatever. I haven't paid much attention to it.

But I do understand this. Having a head job, a coaching position like this, in the SEC, is very valuable. You get paid to win. If you don't win, they'll get somebody else to do it. That's just the way it is. You understand this taking the job.

Whatever happened there, I'm not abreast of. I don't like to see anybody get fired. But I know it's part of the business.
Never forget...

Hey, Swamp Donkey! You finally have time and the money to go see a dentist or at least buy a toothbrush and maybe even use it.

"You get paid to win. If you don't win, they'll get somebody else to do it." Truer words have never been spoken.

O thinking "It's good to have a 12.5 million buyout". Bet he has given that some thought.

I agree. McElwain's comment after the LSU game last year is a good indication of his low character and pompous attitude. During the first half of the LSU game this season he was on the sideline smiling and laughing every time his team made a mistake. It's like he hadn't a clue that LSU would or could beat them. Reminded me a lot of Zook's attitude playing against LSU when Saban first got there. Both coaches looked down at LSU like they are a second class program. Both learned their lesson's, the hard way. Anyway, I must ask, what's the 79 for?

O should've ripped his shirt off as he walked to midfield after the Fla. game this year and cold-cocked Yellow tooth while the Fla band was still playing Tom Petty shite.
