Fox Sports College Football analyst Joel Klatt was on the "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" and gave his take on Ed Orgeron's hot seat situation at LSU. Per 247Sports:
“It's hard to defend his record,” Klatt said. “And you can say, ‘What do you mean he won the national championship?’ He struck lightning in a bottle with a transfer quarterback that had a magical season with a young coordinator that was doing things that were very unique in the conference offensively. They had great weapons around him. That was a lightning in a bottle year that was one of the great teams in college football history that just kind of manifested. Now he has a lot to do with that, but then he lost those two coordinators Joe Brady and Dave Aranda. Remember Dave Aranda took the job at Baylor and he's doing a nice job (there). So he had to retool his staff and he hired guys that he had to fire the next year, including Bo Pelini, who was a disaster defensively. If you take, and I know this is not fair to do, but if you look at his record at LSU, and you take the 15-0 out … it’s not great …
“They measure themselves with Alabama. How are we competing with Alabama … If you throw out the Ole Miss years and the Joe Burrow year and you see what he is, he’s basically a .600 coach. I’m sorry, .600 does not work at LSU. Not with the standard they've set within the sport.”
Oregon is 64-43 overall as a head coach with Ole Miss, USC and LSU. Taking out the 15-0 record, Orgeron is actually 49-43 which is just over a 53% winning percentage.
As Klatt said, throwing out the 15-0 year and his three Ole miss seasons, and for good measure, his quick USC stint, Orgeron is just 33-16 as LSU’s head coach.
