The man has passion and grit. Bleeds purple and gold. Isn't afraid to tie out like a boss. I'll withhold further judgement until he's had a chance to prove himself. Geaux Tigers!

Exactly. We already had a “nice” coach in Les who couldn’t deliver, and I realize that niceness doesn’t necessarily equal wins. But watching his emotional acceptance I saw love and passion for the state and university that certainly CAN equal wins. If it doesn’t, we move on. But I’ll watch the experiment proudly and withold judgment until after.

I'm happy for him, hope he lights it up. I know that he will do his best to make LSU a winner!

He isn’t the sexy pick we wanted, but I think we need to judge him on his work next year. All this speculation and whining isn’t helping. If he succeeds, wonderful. If he doesn’t, we will clean house. With the way LSU seems to like to do things currently, we would probably elevate Aranda to HC. We are already paying him HC money.

Sweet Tie Steve... greatness!

But he said he didn’t want the position? I’m confused

He said that in 2016... Maybe his personal life situation has changed to where now he can focus on this position?

I think he was supposed to say that because LSU did not want to hire him at that time.

So if you spent your entire career about this opportunity, bring in some good recruits and bring in some championships and coach these qb's where they need to be

I agree Steve is a leader but Does he have enough warriors to lead thru the SEC? Here is hoping to that high powered Offense we haven’t seen since Odell and Jarvis were last here

If he is as good as his tie looks we're going to beat Bama THIS YEAR

If it's his "dream job", why did he not want the job only 1 year earlier?? Something's not adding up.

We should also bring in Troy Landry for special teams

I've now figured out that Coach O is not the worst public speaker on the staff.

I'll take competence over someone being "fiery."

He’s competent.

He’s so emotional because he didnt expect to land the gig. He feels he won the lottery because he isnt the best LSU couldve hired. Got my Indy bowl tix on lock down

Ask yourself this...”would any high school in Louisiana hire Coach E as their head coach?” Probably so, but would he be successful? Probably not.at this point, why not bring in JT Curtis and Jay Roth. It’s pathetic and embarrassing
