During the last two seasons, LSU does not deserve the benefit of the doubt. I am ready for our new leadership to give them a reason to do so again.

I don't give a damn about USC, but LSU has gotten to where it deserves to be for trusting the program to imbeciles for entirely too long.

Screw miles and orgeron for creating a "me first" culture. They were absolutely the antithesis of leadership.
