Former LSU coach Ed Orgeron was on the "McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning" show this week and gave his take on some of the power struggles within college football programs like Auburn and how the sport is changing with NIL: Per On3:
quote:

“I’ve been fortunate to be at places where the head coach has total control. I think that’s where it starts,” the coach said. “Jimmy Johnson, Pete Carrol, those guys had total control. When the head coach has total control of his program, I think that’s the key. I don’t know what’s going on at Auburn, but I know this: the NIL, more money is coming into play. More people are gonna have to give money and some will want control. I guess some of ’em are gonna want to coach. But the places I’ve been, it’s never trickled down to me. I’ve always had great relationships with those guys.

“But I learned this from Monte Kiffin: Coaches coach, players play, administration administrates and boosters boost. If we can keep it like that, I think that’s the way to have a great program.”

“That’s your program and you make all the decisions,” he said. “Everyone, whatever it means. The decisions you have to make, all those are on your part.”

You can definitely spot the cry baby's millennials response on this topic. The guys are sooooo upset about Coach O. Its laughable how weak most of these younger guys are on this site and how everything is " the sky is falling" syndrome

I liked the married O; a nobody who was loyal and got rewards for such. It's probably what landed Burrow in the first place, and why a team of absolute greats gelled into the greatest college team of all time. Unmarried O was eccentric in the wrong ways, and played it too safe in the wrong ways as well. He got himself a big-titted bleach blonde who he could frick decently enough. But really what you wanted in a college coach is the high school jock that asks Velma Dinkley to prom, then shows up with the prom queen because he showered her with so much with self-respect that she blossomed into the full-grown woman she was always meant to be.

Since they are talking about paying players, I love how he uses Jimmy Johnson and Pete Carroll as the examples lol

I’m so glad he’s gone. One day he’ll be able to return to LSU as a beloved celebrity with a personality. Hell maybe somewhere in the football ops.

O simply stopped doing what he has proven he can do. That's all there is to it. He'll be a massive risk wherever he lands.

I am sure his phone is ringing off the hook with fat offers. The man won a natty in 2019, for God's sake.

Let it go with Ed. He crafted the best team in college football history. He can’t do that and be totally incompetent and an idiot. He just let it go to his head, and made some mistakes.

Ed lucked out having Burrow and Brady at the same time. Remember, he had Burrow, Chase, Helaire, and the entire OL in 2018 and wasted them in E's offense. O gets credit for 2019, but most of us realize it was just lightning in a bottle, not some masterstroke of program building by O. And of course we say what happened when Burrow and Brady left.

I look back on 2018 and think it may have been one of the worst coaching performances in the history of football. We scored 0 points on Bama with Burrow, Chase, and Jefferson.

Ed loves lsu. His problem is he came in motivated and after the natty got into some personal issues. Not saying he’s Saban, or should be lsu coach, but he’s no where as bad as he is presented in this website. Even with talent, it isn’t easy to out it together. He at least had the ability to let the other coaches do their jobs.

Ultimate Ed Orgeron comment; just names of a bunch of better coaches he's worked for over the years.

Truly successful people usually have no problem crediting others who guided, taught, mentored, and bettered them along the way. I take no offense at Ed showing graciousness toward those he learned from as a coach.

That Dave Aranda built, WTF??? Pretty sure DA had his hands full tryin not to let HIS Defense cost LSU the GOAT Season & a NC. Remember the Bama game? Plus the knock on DA (at LSU at least) was how hes a lazy recruiter & really HATES 2 recruit, just wants to Coach?

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

LOL, I "died" too. That some people don't realize what Orgeron said is exactly correct. But ha, he was such a bad coach right? ED O coached one of the best defenses ever and coached the best college football team ever but, LOL he is just a rambling Buffon right? Great commentary "Admins".

People still support that buffoon? That’s amazing. He’s not wrong, but it’s funny how he can talk the talk, so he’s not a bad coach from some. Look at commiehater still defending him. That idiot ruined our program. You’re too stupid to grasp how incredibly bad he was. That’s scary.
