Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
The ESPN College GameDay crew all had positive comments on LSU hiring Brian Kelly during Saturday's show. Per SI.com:
quote:

"LSU hired a great football coach," Kirk Herbstreit said. "He's gonna hire a great staff and LSU is gonna go out and recruit and look out. They're going to become the juggernaut once again in the SEC West. That's the reality of where we are."

"LSU is a great job and one of the best in the country and Brian Kelly is a fantastic coach," Howard said. "That part fits but I was worried about the cultural fit. I wasn't sure if he would fit their culture. Baton Rouge, New Orleans is one of the most unique places in the world and they are not going to change. There's an opportunity for him to compete against those teams."

"He went because he wanted to play against these teams that he's got equal talent with. He's played at Notre Dame against Alabama, he's played against these great teams but he's never had equal talent," David Pollack said. "Brian Kelly said 'Listen I want to go somewhere that'll provide me the opportunity to win a championship.' He wanted to be in this arena."

The offensive linemen that BK had at ND are going to continue to go to Notre Dame, not LSU, because they are smart and want a good education.

This is an ignorant statement! 90% of those guys DGAF about the education they’re getting. They want to have a good experience, win games, be developed, and make it to the NFL. Georgia and Alabama reel them in constantly, LSU will do the same under BK, just like they did under Saban.

BK is in it for himself not for the tradition or the school to win NC, this ends badly.

Even if true, it sounds like our interests are aligned.

Culture? What do these talking head idiots think, do they we all talk like Orgeron in Louisiana? No, all we want is someone who wins and protects the program. Saban was less a cultural fit than Kelly and look what happened.

Yes you all talk like the shrimp boat captain. I would say we, but I sound more like a Yankee.

We won two NC with two dip shits at the helm. What do you think this program will become with a competent PROFESSIONAL coach?

I’m with Kirk. Particularly like him saying “the” juggernaut in the West, and not “a” juggernaut.

I'm all with you bro; except, when I listened, what he actually said was "a juggernaut" which means the tweeter dude misquoted him in a subtle but significant way.
