re: Orgeron: we’re gonna be in the playoff this year
Les Miles walked into an unbelievable situation where all he had to do was hold on to the reins and ride the ship. Saban had done so much to put us ahead of every other athletic department in the country. Les came in and won immediately. Les started hiring a lot of his buddies (same thing O does)( it’s funny how coaches hire within their tree) but anyway..... les continued to recruit and even beat nick a couple of times and everything was great. Les failed to change and when it was all said and done he could hold the reins to steer the ship. Almost got canned and the. Lost 2 and won 2 and really i think is the reason for this years miss st lose was because if we would have handled our business in 16 and spanked state like we should then think them thinking they could win never happens. Anyway les goes 2-2 and fails miserably... gets canned. Here comes o say we’re gonna flip the script and his main focus is winning and getting the job so he is willing to say and do anything. O + e click and I really do believe he trust him and wanted e all along but he did promise the fan base a “splash”so that’s what we got and truthfully it sucked. Canada sucks! There is a reason he bounces so much and it’s becaus he sucks. I don’t care what you say I know people and people like that that bounce around a lot suck. So o fired him and here we are.

Difference between o and les..... o will fire the guy. Les couldn’t do that.
If something is broke o finds ways to fix it. Penalties, depth, injuries. I like him. He can recruit his arse off. He is 100X the recruiters les was and les was good. I’m rambling sorry. Hope I made my point. Don’t hate.

Yep. Miles wouldn’t fire who he needed to.

O did.

Then he hired Steve Ensminger.

Worse than the guy he fired. Hired his buddies.

We can agree to disagree on that one.

Love Etling but anytime your started is a transfer from Purdue that’s not a great foundation,

I honestly think the greatest gift Miles will ever give us (other than a natty of course) is Brennan. Be qb les ever recruited and now O does get to split em out wide and chunk it around the yard! It’s gonna be fun.

This is what coaches do.

They work with guys they are comfortable with.

Les Miles walked into an unbelievable situation


Don't know about "walked into" but ok, that's fair enough. I get what you're saying.


quote:

For 11 years? Like the place would just recruit itself? If that's the case, why'd we finish 9-4? And you just said O can recruit his arse off. So what gives?

quote:

Les failed to change


After 11 years, yes, yes he did. I agree.

quote:

Here comes o say we’re gonna flip the script


While he was the interim head coach. Of course he's going to say that. What's he going to say, "gee, I sure hope I don't stink this up. Thank you everybody. Geaux Tigers."

quote:

he is willing to say and do anything


Another thing I agree with, only this isn't a positive sign for the program.

quote:

Canada sucks!


So then why did O hire him in the first place? He just felt like setting fire to $3M?

quote:

If something is broke o finds ways to fix it


Like he fixed the OC position after Canada was already leaving. Look at that bowl game. That was not Canada calling the offensive plays.

quote:

He can recruit his arse off


Ordinarily, yes, he's a very good recruiter. But look at our current recruiting rank.

quote:

Don’t hate.



I don't hate him at all, but I'm done with believing anything he says and I've met the man. I give extra chances to people almost to a fault and I have had it with is empty statements. He's lied one too many times and he does what's better for himself, not the biggest revenue maker in LSU athletics.


You want to pull for him, that's all you. I'm not pulling for LSU to fail at all, but I am not supporting O anymore. He's not what this program needs.

At this point I’m thinking LSU football is about to go the way of the hummer.

Someone who is truly confident in their abilities and is a true leader doesn’t predict nor promise anything. They act efficiently and execute in every aspect.

The Orgeron era is simply false promises, hidden agendas, and just overall terrible execution in every aspect.

I'm done with his stuff. I'll still cheer for the Tigers and I am not, I want to stress am nothoping they fail by any stretch of the imagination, those kids deserve support and reassurance. However, as far as O and Alleva are concerned, they screwed this up and we are trending down, not up, which is why Miles was fired to begin with. 

With all that being said, I still have to say


Great post! Thx

Lyin’ Ed has so many of y’all fooled even after the stupid shite he did this year.

9-4 with the worst SEC in a decade equals playoff.



Worst in a decade
1/2 the playoff teams were SEC with a 3rd team that beat both of em and without the SECCG would have been in. Sure others were bad, but our top 2 were very good teams.

Must be miserable to be you. We still have a signing day left, a spring game, summer practice and 9 months to go, but you have packed it in already.

I prefer the opposite direction. I would be perfectly content with making the playoffs every 10 years. I grew up with LSU being middle of the road or just bad.

Considering we went 45 years between championships I think we have done quite well in the 2000s. I would like to beat Bama sooner rather than later, but Saban is probably the greatest coach ever at a team that needs very little effort to get kids to play so thats an uphill battle.

Do I think Coach O was the best we could get? No. Is he our coach? yes, so I am going to pull for him to succeed. If after next year we suck or digress then yes I will want a change, but to just fire someone after 1 year is unfair.

Would you have preferred him saying that we would suck next year? I've lost faith in him as a coach, but this post is stupid.

I agree. One shouldn't be fired after one year; however, Canada was fired after one year. O had a tryout in 2016, then the real thing in 2017.
2018 Schedule looks brutal. If O and SE are the real deal, then LSU will finish 10-2. 7-5 or worse, then O and Allevia need to geaux.
If LSU starts the year at 3-0, then it will be a good year. If they are 1-2, then the O experiment has failed, and as Oprah says, "Yo time is UP!"
