Hello, Tiger Fans. Allow me to shed some light.
This post will hopefully shed some light on this entire situation.

I usually get restless on my flights and find myself browsing your boards.

This is the timeline of the events that transpired.

Steven Ensminger was offered the OC position, and declined. Orgeron set his sights on Briles, and was shut down before he could get the words out of his mouth.

I know because I work alongside the men and women who donate thousands to this great University.

Gilbert was never interviewed. Gilbert was contacted and before anything, asked to bring his own staff in. Orgeron said no. And that was that for Gilbert.

I certainly have no idea where that Gilbert rumor stemmed from if not from this board. I caught wind as it made its way to 247. It was confusing.

Orgeron contacted Lane Kiffin with the approval of Alleva and offered him the same contract as Dave Aranda and was turned down, but not without Kiffin basically planting the briles idea into his head.

Briles would be the last attempt at an OC.

Ensminger accepted the position after being told that they were turned down by the other prospects (the prospects being Lane and Briles).

This process took quite awhile because Ensminger was on the fence about the position.

There is no "Its taking forever, its not Ensminger". Not even Ensminger wanted the OC to be Ensminger. He was in a sense taken advantage of.

The divide in this administration is catastrophically bad. It was awful during the Miles break up , but we have reached an entirely new level. Multiple rag tag loose cannons have been let go for false information leaks. Some of which are backed by the side that does not want Ensminger.

It is much too late for that. Ensminger will lead the offense , and Orgeron will have a hand in the running game. The passing game will not be handled by Orgeron.

Dave Aranda has a few intersting marks in his contract. He cannot entertain an SEC school until 2020. Period. He was given a HCIW tag as well (meaning he will be the first person evaluated and interviewed in the event Orgeron leaves). Orgeron is well aware and expects him to stay on staff.

Most of us up here dont expect Coach Orgeron to make it to 2019. Not with how the boosters are reacting. Much like you all. Defeated and depressed.

Well. Thats it for my first post. The layout for TigerDroppings is much better than any other board ive been on. I will probably stick around with you guys.

Lol it's so fricking sad they even tried this.

Just like our lame arse coaching search, one or two candidates didn't work so let's just give up and hire an internal person that has no business being there. In this case didn't even WANT it.

Didn't think about this. This is a legit reason and makes sense

So no search. And O knew Briles and Kiffin weren’t going to happen, forcing the Ensminger situation.

Exactly what I’ve been saying from the jump.

I have been repeatedly told that Kiffin is the root of our offensive problems

Orgeron should have offered Kiffin his job and his salary and gotten the frick out of town.

Alleva did not allow Briles to come into contact with the university.

A joke that O thought Kiffin would be a candidate

A couple posters here pointed out Gilbert is attached at the hip to his OL coach so makes sense there too.
