Alleva. Pulse Rifle (photo)
< Last winter >

Joe, let's bring back Jimbo.
"Sorry, can't afford him."

Pound out a deal with Herman.

"Sorry, LSU will Not overpay."

Then get to work on that coaching search.
"Sorry, I decided to hire Orgeron.. a great feel-good story. The fanbase
will galvanize around that accent."

Sounds naive, even a bit risky.
"Sorry, my racquetball friends already weighed-in.. one of them is
an expert on polling & new-media."

Can you back that up with actual data, to maximize our position?
"Sorry, lots of inertia. Things in motion. Just go with it."

Well, like you said, don't overpay.

"Sorry, just invested 12-mil. My racquetball expert says it's psychology,
the new trend is up-front-incentives. Pure genius."

< This Fall >

Joe, we need accountability...show some leadership.

"Sorry, it's the coaches responsibility to protect my job -- make sure
they don't get me fired !"



Below is the Pulse Rifle from my nephew's favorite video game 'Destiny' - it's got some
ass kicking weapons.

For comic relief. or sanity.. we ain't getting any younger.

Herman was playing LSU all the way. The Texas job was what he wanted. Not to say another coach shouldn’t have been hired, but Herman would not have accepted this job unless Texas dropped all interest.

I follow you re: Herman...but in context, it's the same old Joe.

Yes.

Now, if Charlie Strong had muddled through to a respectable record last year, things could have been very different: Tom Herman is likely the head coach of LSU right now.

Based on his start at Texas, people might be whining that we should have kept Orgeron (LOL!!!) but Herman would be at LSU.

The problem, IMO, is that Herman might have kept one eye on the Texas job. It would always would have been a distraction with Herman.

We would have at least made Texas overpay for Herman because LSU could and would have offered TH $7m/yr.

And a 100M buyout knowing these clowns.

Yes, and the bottom line is still the attitude, the mentality that can't afford Jimbo or Herman or complete a real search--
yet we pay tons $$$ for Orgeron,
rather than a small-buyout.

We had leverage over O... we could have given him incentives that were smart /to our advantage, instead Alleva acted like HE was actually O's agent
