During his radio show on Wednesday night, head coach Ed Orgeron made it clear that he wants to recruit pro-style quarterbacks in the future. Per The Advocate:
quote:

Pro-style QB recruiting: Asked about LSU’s perceived inability to recruit or develop quarterbacks under Les Miles, Orgeron made clear that he plans to recruit pro-style quarterbacks and prefers to recruit pro-style quarterbacks from Louisiana. LSU signed 17 quarterback in Miles’ 12-year tenure – nine pro-style quarterbacks and eight dual-threat quarterbacks. “I want a pro-style quarterback,” Orgeron said. “Louisiana has been rich in quarterbacks and pro-style quarterbacks. … We’re going to go anywhere in the country that we need to get them, but we’re going to look at Louisiana first.”

I think Brennan will flourish under Coach O. Coach O, if he gets the job, will totally revamp the offense in the off-season and recruit guys to fit his scheme. I think Brennan will have an offense that caters to his strengths, unlike our current offense that does not play to anyone's strengths. I really hate that pitch off tackle run play. I cringe every time I see it.

As much as I hate to say this, I do not think CEO will get the job under any circumstance. His name is not big enough. I hate it, but it is true.

Would prefer a dual threat in an open offense to make plays when breakdowns occur. I don't see the need for him to announce this as it doesnt benefit us. We better recruit/develop more on the OLine if this is the plan. Immobile quarterbacks with only an average line doesnt sound good to me. Also, seems to me that Louisiana produces more dual threats than prostyle. Prostyle is becoming nonexistent so good luck.

Pro Style doesn't always mean not mobile. Look at Danny Etling. He looks like he has more escapability than dual-threat Brandon Harris.

My favorite thing about Coach O is you never have to guess his feelings on a subject.

1. Ed O is handling the team as if he is an will be the "coach". 2. He wants the Tiger Fans to get behind him so he is telling the Tiger fans what the team will look like under his watch if he gets the Head Coach job. He is building momentum so that if he wins down the stretch he will show he can win and have public pressure for him to stay. 3. One of my knocks on Les Miles has always been that he had several quarterbacks with different skill sets and tried to force them into offenses that did not suit there talents. Jarrett Lee running an option. Trying to make a drop back passer out of others who were better at run first. It is certainly best to decide on a scheme and recruit to that scheme. 4. We need to bring in less wide receivers and safeties and more DL. In some cases I think Les took players at these positions simply to build up a class ranking, keep them away from other teams or other reasons. But then they sat the bench and took up scholarships while other positions such as DL and LB's were very thin.

I get it. But he's not the permanent HC yet. Gotta use more savvy for recruiting purposes. He doesn't know what the new guy will want. Don't want to run guys off if you might not even have the job permanently.

I like Coach O... but I dont think this is a good idea to make this statement publicly. We in the middle of a coaching change and we have no clue who will be our next OC and what offensive philosophy he will bring. You are recruiting against yourself when you make those type of statements. If you want a Pro-style guy, that's fine...just keep that to yourself and staff.

Agreed. Guy like Narcisse sees this and immediately thinks he isn't a fit. On the other hand, be honest with who you are so that the recruit is not mislead.

As to the future HC. Though I like CEO, I'm not sold after one game. Additionally, I'm interested in getting a guy who can give us a modern offense. Mizzou is a game that dictated that we run with their weaker DL. Let hold off till you see how we adjust vs stronger opponents.

I hate to say it, but the top 2 teams in the country are Bama & Ohio state. Both have gone spread, both use DT QBs. LSU is always behind in the football progress. "Modern Football" requires QBs that can give you both. Wait till Bama when the OL is overwhelmed. You'll see then what the lack of a DT will get you.

Brennan does give us both. The funny thing is that you have people that say they don't want a spread QB and Brennan is 100% spread. I don't want a bull shite pro style offense though. It's time to go spread. That's one of the reasons why I don't think Coach O should get the job. You have all these high school spread QBs and systems down here in Louisiana and Texas, yet you swim against the current by going pro style? Wake TF up!

I'm getting to the point where if we don't make him the HC for at least a season or two, I will be very disappointed. The man is good for business down here.

One of the best Pro-Style QB's in the Country is right down road about 2 hours East and he's already committed to LSU. Make him a Priority to not let get away a la Feleipe Franks................

What makes him pro style, he's never under center?

What does that mean for Lowell Narcisse ?? He's a big time talent.

Sound like we don't want him. He's definitely not a pro style QB.

I love CEO but pump the brakes guys. If he runs the table and wins the SEC championship game, he deserves the permanent HC title. It would help him to make it to at least one play off game and hopefully win that. One game against Mizzu does not define him being the LSU head coach.

Negatiger. We supported mediocre football for 12 years. We can get excited to see our team perform well no matter who we play. Very rarely have we ever come out and executed well for 4 full quarters.

TaderSalad, "We supported mediocre football for 12 years." I knew you were an idiot as soon as I read that part of your post. If you really believe that, you'll never be happy with LSU football. I realize that not all of the past 12 years have been sunshine and lollipops, but your statement shows what a hateful moron you are.

O remembers the glory days of USC when he was there and all the NFL type quarterbacks they had...I really think he's going to make LSU hire him because the fans will love him so much.

Coach O has long been a propenent of a pro style offense. His time at Miami & USC still heavily influences him.

Rude awakening. Bama and Ole Miss spread O is going to slap us right in the face.

The Rude awakening will be the brick wall that Bama's offense will hit on the 50 yard line in the Valley. Bring that crap to DBU. The defense is just getting started with Aranda.
