Not disputing your points... but, it's not the O supporters that are guilty of teeth gnashing and sky-screaming.... I think you are confused.

After winning a game in the last second which really was not a win because the play snap was a second too late.
LF does not bust his ankle in preseason - LSU beats WI and AU. Miles is probably still coach or we are in a transition with head coach in waiting.

You are kidding, right? There are probably a hundred guys out there who could have played the easiest LSU schedule in twenty years and not suffered four defeats.

The most stupid shite I have seen is this idea that there was no real options for LSU after Jimbo and Herman.

Oh really?

"Haters!"

"You aren't real fans!"

"You want LSU to fail!"

"You're hurting recruiting!"

"Eaux's recruiting is great!"

"Eaux was left with no talent!"

"I don't care what Eaux did at Ole Miss!"

"Eaux learned from Ole Miss!"

"Blame Canada!"

It's usually more profane than that, but I'm sure variations of those exclamations look familiar.

re: We desperately need O to succeed because there are no guarantees.
There are not 100 coaches that can achieve greatness at LSU and SUSTAIN it. There are very, very few who are capable of that. You're acting as though I indicated O was the next best thing after jimbob and herman. Hell no I didn't say that or imply that. And I don't give a shite if 100 other coaches could've done better than 9 & 4 LAST SEASON. That's 1 season! I'm asking who the hell you can get that can go toe to toe EVERY SEASON in the SEC.

If that's teeth-gnashing and sky screaming-- then it applies to both sides.

But...based on resumes alone, there were EASILY 100 better options than our own DL coach and his career record of 10-25.

Whether or not all or any of those would have worked out and REGARDLESS of whether or not Orgeron goes on to win 7 NC's at LSU, this will always remain true.

LSU hired a man that literally no other Power 5 conference team was even looking at as a coach, and we did it following two different men winning National Titles at our program. That level of negligence on the part of our AD and BOS is almost hard to comprehend.

Step 1: Hire a man that either has shown he can get a program to compete at the highest level as a head coach or at least not hire a man that has shown the exact opposite in the SEC.

Step 2: There is no Step 2. Hiring is always a crap shoot and the goal is to mitigate risk. That's why you hire the best available and hope past results come with the candidate. You don't hire the risky candidate available and then attempt to argue that if things miraculously work out the gamble was worth it.
