Man, do some of you have a life beyond bashing everything that happens within our football program? Seriously, is that what your lives consist of? Waking up in the morning and coming on TD just to ridicule, make fun of, and downplay our football program, coach, and decisions that are made? It's really pathetic. Get a life.

As pathetic as trying to spin Doug Nussmeier as a good hire for anything other than delivering a pizza? Who knows.

The answer to your question is a resounding yes. I am convinced that this board is infested with posers who are not LSU fans and post anything negative about LSU just to stir up controversy and hoping to make LSU look bad. It is like no other board.

He may have been a bad OC, but he's overqualified to be an analyst, so solid hire by Orgeron. Most of the problems at Florida was shitty personnel anyway. He did well when Will Grier was playing QB.

No he didn't Grier had 1.5 games where he looked good. The rest of the time he looked like LDR

I'm at least intrigued. It's a start.

He did call that beautiful screen pass from McCarron to Yeldon in 2012.

Because of the move of Ensminger to OC I think this is a very good hire, he can help put together, the blue print for the offense, then also help with game planning week to week....I also agree that alot of people are just looking for reason to complain, this move can't hurt...& If PS2 hadn't burned us yesterday everyone would be psyched right now cause we got everything we needed and have a spot left over for a possible QB transfer

*If we didn't lose PS2 to Bama. Its always worse when they pick Bama over us. Ill reserve judgement on the hire until I see the product on the field.

Hmmm...he must have a great personality or they think he can help with recruiting? Florida was ranked 109 (out of 129) in total offense for the last season. And (holy shit) 116 out of 129 the year prior. LINK

He also made AJ McCarron's terrible arse look like a star. Can't judge a career based on a couple of seasons on a team that was a dumpster fire. He can't be any worse than what we currently have.

Can't judge him off of 3 years of 100+ ranked offense? What do you think made that team a dumpster fire? The terrible, terrible offense. And what about his time from Michigan. Terrible offense. Why did Saban push him out? Delusional to think this guy is a good hire for anyone to do anything.

Help with recruiting? Lulz. You guys have a lot to learn about Nuss. He's been a terrible OC at multiple spots. He's only decent when he has 5*s everywhere. You guys were warned.

Why didn't he analyzed his offense in Florida and Michigan. His offense in those 2 schools were last in the world. In fact, I do not recall Florida has ever had a vorse offense.

At least he knows where the bodies are buried.

Definitely a good hire for analyst. No one should bitch about this. He’s super qualified.
Reply3 months
before long, every player will have his own coordinator!

Nuss has been more places than Canada. Is this a mini-Matt? Over under on how long he stays?
Reply3 months
2 years tops.

Methinks people are thinking far too into this. He's NOT going to be our OC and he's not going to be calling plays. In my opinion, having more experienced minds and coaches as analysts is a good thing. So people just need to chill out. Oh, and by the way. I'm by no means a Coach O supporter so don't throw that shite on me.

Nice hire, Coach Special Ed!
Reply3 months
Well. He’s got a resume!
Reply3 months
He’s MEESTER Nussmeier. I’ll vouch for heem.
Reply3 months
This is actually a really good hire
Reply3 months
Why??

why not hire him as OC instead of analyst ?
Reply3 months
I'll answer my own question: assuming he's looking for something bigger and long-term (NFL?) in a year or two.

BECAUSE HE'S NOT ONE OF US YAW YAW YAW
