If you saw the entire press conference then you saw O acknowledge that he had an opportunity to hire Tee Martin and TM was interested, but as he said "I had my guy". SE, age-59, 2016 offense ranked 59, 340 pts......... TM, age 39, 2017 offense ranked 8, 456 pts. Draw your own conclusion, but that sounds risky to me.

Terrible hire. But we haven't played a down with him as the full-time HC yet. Best of luck to him, and this better freaking pan out, O. I'm trusting you...for now.

Why is this a terrible hire?

Because it smacks of mediocrity and says we’re not interested in winning championships. Not right now, anyway.

He said all the right things. RPO gets me hard just thinking about it. Now lets see is he will actually DO what he SAYS.

Why is El Chapo a terrible person?... Because he has a history of being a criminal. Ensminger has a history of being a failed OC, which makes him a terrible hire.

Anxious to see what type of offense we run. Canada's offense didn't impress me much. It worked well between the 20's, but struggled in the red zone. I don't think this hire is near as bad as everyone is making it out to be. People want a "big name" coordinator, but like he said he knows these players strengths and weaknesses. I wish folks would hold off judgement and give this man an entire offseason to instill what he wants to do and then decide whether he has what it takes or not.

The team and coaches have my full support. Let's go Tigers!

Can’t be mad about this. We know if he does well he will retire a tiger. No more bidding wars with our coaches. He can develop qb’s and hopefully will get the best out of miles. My only worry is the running game is going to be avg at best next year.

Love Ensminger. And I pray to Jesus that this works out a lot better than most people (myself included) are expecting. Fire Alleva!!!

Fire Aleva for what exactly? LSU Baseball finished in the finals of the CWS. LSU Basketball has apparently found the right guy in Will Wade and Aleva hired him. LSU Football finished 9-4 which is not a catastrophe by any means. LSU Football looks to have another Top 10 recruiting class in the barn and LSU kept the Best DC in College from leaving by doing what was necessary to keep him. So fire him for what? Orgeron got rid of an OC who has had a track record of getting run off. Canada hasnt coached anywhere in his last 5 jobs for more than 2 years. So what did Aleva do that has you so upset?
