Best quote from the presser.
He is doing the same thing that got him fired at Ole Miss. When and if this program goes down in flames, he is making it impossible to say it wasn't his doing.

Question: "Coach, rankings dont mean everything, but this is LSUs lowest ranked class since 2005, what do you need to do to get back?"

Answer:
"Lets see what happens with this class"
"Some OL/DL in this class that are very good"

"I trust my rankings, I chose this class. I trust my ability to evaluate and develop better than anyone else. I'm not going to trust any one else's evaluation."

^^ That was verbatim what he said, with bold to emphasize what he emphasized.

That's the equivalent of when some pumper is on here spouting off "I ain't buyin' into da recrootin' rankins from dese places, they ain't know a players heart!" Except it's not some random message board poster, it's the head coach.

Well there we have it. The gauntlet has been thrown down. Someone bookmark this please. I hope he's right. But if he's not, there's nowhere to run from that quote.

He's just buying as much time as he can. Eventually it will come crashing down. In his mind...he really thinks that he'll turn it around eventually though. He can't see the writing on the wall.

I'd love for him to prove me wrong, but it's just a matter of time imo.

re: Best quote from the presser.
Couple this with the fact that he said he was "disappointed in the misses today" as well as "we purposely saved those scholarships in case we need them- it was the plan all along" and my faith in him is long goneeee.

Weird how coaches like Nick Saban, Dabo, Smart, and Urban generally use these evaluations and sign top classes.

Guess those guys are just idiots

yep. That is indeed the proverbial 'painted into a corner'.

The lying about undersigning is just lagniappe.

I get the trust our evaluations thing. However, that can not, absolutely, coupled with big time misses. One without the other, meh. Both can't happen simultaneously.

so you'd rather the guys at Rivals pick which targets LSU recruits? I'm confused as to why the quote is a bad thing. Like it or not, O is the coach. He needs to sink or swim with his guys.

What I find troubling is he contradicts the above quote later on when asked what he'd do different. He stated he would be more selective in the early signing period. He's all but admitting there are guys he probably wouldn't move on with an offer if he had to do it all over again.

So is it an underrated class by the services or are there guys in the class who aren't up to "LSU standards"? You said both, O.

So he shouldn't take responsibility for his actions? This doesn't look like an elite recruiting class like we're used to and today sucked but at least he owns up to what he's done

Well, he drew the sword. I hope he's willing to fall on it if need be.
