Paul Finebaum was on the "McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning" show on Monday and talked about the situation in Baton Rouge.

Finebaum credited both Ed Orgeron and Scott Woodward for how everything was handled. Per The Spun:
quote:

“I think Coach O handled it well… but if you fire me today and give me $17 million, I’ll come over and cut your grass. I don’t care,” Finebaum said. “It’s a show, that’s all it is, and it’s a show because Scott Woodward to get rid of Coach had to find a palatable way for him to exit. Knowing that he is very popular. Knowing that people in that state don’t care about all the reasons he was pushed out. They just care that he’s a product of south Louisiana. He talks the language, he won a national championship and he’s the LSU coach.

“And for that I give Woodward credit, it’s not easy to pull these types of things off. They did, it doesn’t mean anything. We know a lot of the truth now in reports, but fans don’t care about that, they only care, Cole and Greg, as you guys know, about what’s on the scoreboard, and Ed O won the last game that they saw him coach.”

Should we tell him that CEO hasn’t coached his last game? Guess he missed that part.

Coach O is a great recruiter...how will a new guy do, particularly one from Northern climes?

Black coach same as white coach…..if you can’t do, you don’t stay. Color buys NOTHING…..only production matters.

Finebaum is totally wrong about how the fan base felt about O. There’s only so much rope the fans will give you before you hang yourself and that’s what O did. Woodward couldn’t have done a better job

I agree there are some diehard O fans, but good chance more are ready to move on than not.

Lol- Finebaum clearly does not read this board if he thinks O is still “sooo” popular among the fans and that all we care about is he talks the language, is from S. LA, and won a title.

Do you really think TD is the voice of the entire LSU fanbase?

Paul made perfect sense of this, and I think was more than fair in his assessments of LSU, O, and the reasoning behind it all.

Finebaum is an idiot and clearly has no idea how the majority of our fanbase feels about Orgeron...
