Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, and David Pollack of ESPN College GameDay all discussed the LSU head coaching search during Saturday's episode and all three gave different picks.

Herbstreit went with Cincinnati's Luke Fickell, Howard said Michigan State's Mel Tucker would be his pick and Pollack went with Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher. Per SDS:
quote:

“Luke Fickell,” Herbstreit said on College Football Gameday on Saturday. “I’d try to get Luke Fickell, even at LSU.”

...

“Despite the fact that Michigan State is offering this huge contract to Mel Tucker, if he hasn’t signed it yet, I’m going hard after Mel Tucker,” Howard said.

Former Georgia defensive end David Pollack said it’s time for the Tigers to hire an offensive-minded coach, specifically Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher. Orgeron has coached defense for his entire career, mostly on the defensive line.

“If I’m allowed to have anybody, I’m going the opposite and hire Jimbo Fisher and go offense from Ed Orgeron,” Pollack said. “If I got to pick, I’d hire Jimbo Fisher.”
What do you think?

Actually my first choice would be Coach O....when he goes, the LSU football program will end up like Tennessee is at this point....spending millions for nothing....the Louisiana draft choices won't come to LSU for another coach

Sure, these morons want Losers at LSU...and don't have a real clue what is going on. We may as well get CNN or MSNBC to do a woke poll to select our next coach!!! We go woke and we'll be broke....Yes, write that down tiger fans and alumni!!!

Damn right. ESPN is conspiring to make LSU hire a bad coach. ESPN should stay out of it so LSU can make a great hire like they did with O

Billy Napier Leader of men, demands accountability from all and leads by example. Great recruiter with proven track record with “Blue Chip” talent—bringing in valuable pieces to Clemson under Dabo and Alabama under Saban. Already laser-focused and developed “inroads” to Louisiana and Texas recruiting in addition to his connections across the southeast (Bama, Georgia, Florida, Carolinas) Man of God, grounded, won’t lose focus chasing tail like O did. Proven ability to be a head coach while letting his assistants coach. Compared favorably to both Dabo and Saban by well-connected, well-respected CFB sources—described as “the offensive version of Nick Saban” based on his time in Tuscaloosa. Committed to doing things the right way, didn’t jump ship at UL for USCe or Auburn just to get a big job—seems to suggest he has the wisdom to recognize the difference between a good opportunity and “the right” opportunity. If LSU offered him the job I believe he’d take it. Only other jobs that offer better “tools” and prestige aren’t available (tOSU, Bama, Clemson…) I think he recognizes how quickly Saban was able to return LSU to prominence/even dominance and that connection to local talent. He’ll see how committed Woodward seems to be in throwing real resources at the different sports programs to achieve success. On top of it all, he knows LSU is and always will be “a football school”. Many LSU fans may not recognize it, but Napier is the best candidate—he is the next Saban!

Saban had one remarkable season at LSU, not the same Alabama Saban

If he does indeed become the head coach it means EVERYONE and I do mean EVERY FUKIN ONE turned us down. It will truly be a sad day. Only good thing is he just might do great if he is in fact ready for the bigs………
