Saban gave us one year....

Big deal. Our recruiting is on par with then yet we go through massive ‘rebuilds’, attitude issues, team leaders opting out two weeks after players only meetings, HC taking selfies in bed with girls half his age.

At what point do we overcome the stereotype of La being a political failure trickling down to every aspect of life in the state?

Saban (and Dabo) have been at their current schools for 12+ years each.

It takes time to establish a consistent program.

Will Orgeron accomplish that? I don’t know. But it’s foolish to compare him to them at this point.

Back in reality
quote:

Entering 2019, 16 teams are above the 50% Blue-Chip Ratio:

Ohio State 81%

Alabama 80%

Georgia 79%

LSU 64%

Florida State 61%

Clemson 60%

USC 60%

Penn State 60%

Michigan 60%

Texas 60%

Oklahoma 60%

Auburn 58%

Washington 54%

Notre Dame 54%

Florida 53%

Miami 51%




The offseason was literally a perfect shite storm and this season is widely viewed as a farce. Accept the bottleneck year, couldn't happen in a better year tbh

It’s think it’s finally starting to sink into CEO’s head that he’s in a bad situation. Especially if he and Woodward aren’t even on speaking terms as rumored.(not saying that’s it’s true. Only that I’ve read it a couple times on here.) If indeed true, I really do think O will go back to what he was hired for, and that’s to hire the best coordinators available and truly be the CEO.

I maybe wrong, but I don’t think that he so jaded to not change things up ala CLM. I don’t think he’s going to take the fall for anyone.

Saban set the foundation and built the program for the next 20. That is the difference between him, Miles and Orgeron. That IS a “Big Deal”.

When the head coach stays out of politics to save his ass. Saban didn’t need politics. In fact he told them the go screw themselves whenever he wanted. He is a head coac that EVERYONE respected because he demanded it. Orgeron is not.

Saban took a mediocre Bama programs and had them contending in his second year. He won 3 titles in his first 6 years. Try again.

This shite storm was 100% brought on by the head coach. Players only care about the NFL. All are vain, not many team players at LSU, and this is what you get. Florida State all over again

I agree with the body of your post but

Saban didn't give us shite. We took last year and made it our bitch with the best college football ever

starting with year 2 in Tuscaloosa, Saban has lost more than 2 games in a season once.

so it took him all of 12 months to do it.

Agree that nothing was given to us. We had one great opportunity, and we maxed out that opportunity with the best LSU season ever (probably).

In contrast, Georgia also had one opportunity, but they came up just short and their potential dream season will always be remembered for 2nd and 26.

At least tonight we can ease our pain replaying the many highlights from last year, knowing how they ended in greatness and victory.

It is because of the type of athlete we recruit and the way we recruit them. We sell these kids on getting to the NFL and Saban sells them on being at Bama. We can only refill the cupboard once every four years.

No it’s not. Not on the front end( recruiting HS seniors) and not on the back end(recruiting players to stay one more year).

Our recruiting is not really in par with Bama’s. It has been really good the last 2-3 years (at least on paper) but the gulf between their classes and ours was still significant. Then you add in our weird culture of leaving early and talent hasn’t really been close outside of last year.

I think there is some truth to this. The concept of team first is now a quaint anachronism. All people are consumed by petty vanities. All worship mammon.

Show me the year that Saban & Dabo fell apart in their 12 year tenure and had a monumental collapse and losing season? I’ll hang up and listen.
