LSU's play-calling struggles led to many questions for Ed Orgeron on Monday about offensive coordinator Jake Peetz and what could be done to eliminate presnap issues.

Orgeron was even asked if former offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger, who serves as a consultant on staff, could go up in the press box and help Peetz?

"Is there anything you can do to bring someone into the press box, maybe to help Jake Peetz? Can Steve Ensminger help? And maybe say' 'let's find a play and stick to it,' that kind of thing?"
quote:

"Yeah, that's a thought," Orgeron responded. "That has been considered. I think Steve is enjoying his retirement. He does come as a consultant and maybe he will come in the box. It might be something I'll talk to him about. Good idea."

Sweet lord. If you need Steve Engminger to bail you out it's worse than anyone thought.

Why not? We averaged 31 a game last year with basically the same offensive players.

So we're paying Yaw Yaw $6m a year so that a $40k a year reporter can give him insight on what he should do? For f***s sake man. He is so over his head that it's laughable.

“Good idea” !?!?!? Getting paid millions to take advice from a media blowhard who has never even put on a jock strap before!!!

So he's essentially throwing Peetz under the bus here. Great leadership O! If Peetz really could use some advice in regard to play calling you keep that in-house. You don't air that out to reporters.

Should bring Les in as a consultant to get the ground and pound going again. That man could get us 3 yards every down .will just have to keep the good looking 20 year old girls away from the building while he is there though. That leaves Ed in a bind as well since he is looking at the same demographic as well.

At this point, as putrid as our running game is, I’d welcome a toss dive or two.

At this point, Coach O doesn't have clue to successfully manage a football program. He hired his staff. He has no confidence in them. Does LSU have the money to part ways with shrimp captain?

Fire Peetz and convince Ensminger to call plays for the rest of the year. Fire O after the year and get somebody that isn't a complete moron to be the head coach.

What a fricking moron! This is what we pay 8 million a year for. When you have reporters giving you ideas of what to do then its way past time for you go!

Every time I think it can't get more embarrassing, Coach O opens his mouth and proves me wrong.

Can we get that same reporter to go back and suggest his resignation?

As snarky and sarcastic as most of the posters here are, I figured they’d read his answer as such. I know I did.

Right! He has no room to be cute the way he has mishandled his job. He needs to keep eating all the humble pie being thrown his way.

Throw your current OC under the bus in public. You need to throw the O-line coach under the bus. Peetz has lost half his playbood because of the O-line not being able to occassionally get 5 yards in the run game.

Ok. So we go out and hire an Offensive Coordinator who doesn’t know how to call plays and have to ask Ensminger (who is trying to retire) to come bail the OC out? Oh yeah, this is normal. WTF IS THE OC PAID TO DO?

So I guess you’ve bailed on defending O ad nauseam, Rob?

Hey Little Timer, I never did support Orgeron ad nauseum but you do seem obsessed with me. You are kind of a creepy mofo.

Please tell me he literally didn't say “good idea”. This coming from a guy saying he's was hiring the best coaches in America

Yes, those words came out of his mouth, but I promise you it wasn't sincere and isn't even being considered as an option
