I wonder if O will add him to the staff as RB's coach if Robinson leaves. Imagine that?? Would be awesome!

I was thinking that will all the different coaches on campus, including the consultants, and thinking that Coach O is a great guy to be around, then coaching at LSU must be pretty awesome right now. Day to day the environment is serious but fun, too.

I remember all the idiots who made fun of CEO when he brought John Robinson on as adviser.

Marcus is coming back to the scene of the crime 1979 where he and John Robinson broke all the Tiger faithfuls hearts. Still one of the best games I've ever seen in Tiger Stadium alone with LSU v Auburn 1988.

Agreed! Charles White and Marcus Allen (both Heisman winners). I'll never forget that game.In the student section. Insanely loud for the ENTIRE game. It never stopped. I mean NEVER. We never sat down. Never more proud of Tiger fans. I don't think I said 3 words to my date the whole game. We just screamed from start to finish. Crushing defeat. But Tigers played hell of a game.

I met Marcus on the sideline before the A&M game, and was confused why he was there, so decided to ask. I mean who do I think I am asking Marcus Allen why he was there... Turns out he's buddies with Coach O from when O coached at USC.

How must USC feel right about now with this announcement?

Would be even more hilarious if Pelini had any USC connections.

All for $70??? Wow, that is worth many times that.

No doubt. Four meals and a chance to hear Marcus Allen talk football for $70 is a steal.

Him and O are buds, notihng wrong with that. I'm surprised though that Marcus has the time to spend down in little ole Baton Rouge. I'm sure O appreciates it, tremendously.

Was Allen on the LSU sidelines in the two playoff games? Hope so. I think he was at the SECG game.
