Now that we've been officially screwed, state your real expectations for LSU
I don't like the Ensminger hire because there is nothing in his past work history that would indicate he is an innovative offensive mind or molder of QB's.

Of course, for LSU's sake, I hope I'm wrong.

That said, Coach O has made his bed. Time for him to lay in it. Anything less than 28 points per game won't cut it, IMO.

If the offensive doesn't score and consume clock, Aranda's defense will get tired. Look what happened to the Bama defense against Georgia in the first half when they played more snaps than they were used to. Then compare it to the second half when the Bama offense consumed clock and scored. Fresh defense.

So, Coach O/E/O I expect first downs and points, innovative play calling and being able to out scheme SEC defenses.

If you can do that, you'll keep the big paychecks. If not, you will be on the fricking street. Be better than expected, it's your only chance at being successful.

We fired a NC winning coach because he couldn’t get over the 10 win mark anymore.

This expectation has not changed. Win championships or get the hell out, Yaw Yaw

re: Now that we've been officially screwed, state your real expectations for LSU
Here's how I see next season going:

Defense:
Significantly better on the line. Slightly better at LB. A noticeable step back at DB. Overall, improved.

Offense:
Significantly better on the line. Precipitous dropped off at RB that has not been seen since the early 2000s. WR-no Clue. QB - more physical talent but much less experience. Scheme-no clue. Overall, mediocre, with roughly the same ppg.

Special teams:
FGs:Significantly improved with a new kicker. Returns: Better, because Chark was mostly just competent with a couple of high spikes that he is remembered for.

7-5 on the season. Our schedule is harder. The other SEC teams won't suck as bad. We're starting all over again on offense. We have poor leadership and questionable offensive staff.

The only expectations I have are to get Orgeron and Alleva the frick out ASAP.

Any member of the administration that backs them at this point can get the frick out too.

Including the bowl game, 10-3.

Myles and the offense will be a pleasant surprise. The spring will be a major key.

I think this will be the break year for O - either we win 10 games or he's gone. If 9 wins wasn't good enough to keep Les, it definitely shouldn't be good enough for O. If Ensminger's offense works, we'll know it soon enough. Now, I could live with the option of firing O, the offensive staff, and allow Aranda's promotion (and Raymond's to DC) AND THEN LET ARANDA PICK ALL HIS COACHES.

For the 2019 and 2020 seasons we should be absolutely in the hunt for the SEC - and, using the Bama analogy - if we win them all, except Bama, we should still get into the playoffs.

Right?

The biggest problem Brennan is gonna have compared to Etling is turnovers. I know Etling was a terrible passer, but who gets through an entire SEC season with only 2 INTs?!?! Brennan had 2 in the 5 min he played. Ha he played more throughout the season as Canada wanted, even if Canada is still gone, Brennan is a better game manager. Ensminger is a pro style west coast offense guy from all reports and what we saw last year. He’s gonna put a lot on a QB who might not be quite ready for all that yet. I’m predicting he’ll throw at least a dozen picks and with our schedule and negative impact of losing early to teams like Miami and UGA I think we go 6-6.

Regardless of who is the OC or the HC I have the same expectations. I want a National Championship. The bar has not moved. If they can't get it done then replace them, but now it's time to stop the melt, it was fun while it lasted, and get excited about the program.
