re: LB Demario Tolan enters the portal. WTF! - CoachOeaux
The structure of NIL creates weird incentives. Contracts aren’t with the schools, they are with whoever is fronting NIL money. Those NIL payers can’t obligate a kid to stay at the college, they can only make a kid forfeit money if he leaves. But that means any school willing to pay more can buy a...

re: So if LSU runs the table... - CoachOeaux
Big Ten champ rounds it out, that actually sounds reasonable. Who else deserves it? A gone loss Oregon team that got steamrolled by Georgia probably doesn’t get in over defending champ Georgia. Clemson might end up undefeated but they’ve struggled against some very mediocre ACC teams and don’t hav...

re: How did we change our scheme in a week? - CoachOeaux
I’ll put it this way - the team wasn’t ready for week 1. Had to install a whole new offense and defense with a new coach, new coaching staff in all key roles, tons of transfers/departures and a new QB. Add in a real QB competition in camp and Daniels just hasn’t looked comfortable - it’s one read,...

re: Coach O ran this place into the ground - CoachOeaux
The problem is largely that Coach O was a lame duck coach for all of recruiting season. Until that happened he was recruiting at a top level. When no one knows who the coach will be or which of the assistants will stay, it’s impossible to bring in recruits except for locals who grew up ride or die L...

re: Are we recruiting Travis Hunter for next year? - CoachOeaux
Idk, he gets a chance to legitimately play both ways for 3 years, and to be coached by the last guy to successfully play both ways (and multiple sports) at an elite level. I doubt he’ll do both so well as a freshman that he feels like he hit his ceiling. And I doubt he goes to Alabama and Saban ...

re: This offense is going to be dangerous next year - CoachOeaux
Other than injury risk, TDP is much better served playing another year behind an improved O Line. Last year the blocking was a disaster and he had very few opportunities to shine as a prospect. As blocking got better later in the season he started showing his ability...

re: CBK answer to O Linemen Question - CoachOeaux
They did not deserve that ranking. The spread attack and burrows savvy in dodging blitzes or getting the ball out quick covered up a whole lot. The run game was ok but not great and didn’t get great push in obvious run situations. And none of those guys have had good starts in the NFL ...

re: Brian Kelly Criticisms Debunked - CoachOeaux
I actually think the age works out well long term. He’ll be good for 5-10 years, and LSU can have confidence he won’t leave for another program or the NFL. It also helps with coordinators - he can credibly bring in and keep coordinators who have aspirations of being the head coach because they kno...

re: Kelly should go after Doug Belk if Freeman says no - CoachOeaux
He did a good job at the end of the season with a very depleted roster, and I think there’s something to be said for continuity so players don’t have a 3rd DC in 3 years. But even at their best the defense still looked disjointed at times and had lots of miscommunications, and he also didn’t really...

re: Looks like Justin Vincent was a legit sauce - CoachOeaux
It’s becoming very clear that Lincoln Riley’s decision was made early in the year (hell, he even recruited heavily out of Southern Cal and is already flipping those recruits), and the Notre Dame AD has said he wasn’t surprised. It is possible that LSU took a last minute Hail Mary shot at Lincoln Ri...

re: I would like to give a shout out to coach O. - CoachOeaux
I mean he took over a program that was stuck in the past and known as a place where offensive talent was hidden by boring schemes, took it to seasons of 9-4, 10-3 and 15-0 and changed the perception of LSU into a top destination for offensive football. The last two years weren’t great, but rememb...

re: How would you grade Woodwards job on landing Coach Kelly and the contract? - CoachOeaux
It has to be an A. The only candidates available / in play that would be considered good hires were Riley, Aranda, Kelly and Napier. Tucker maybe, but he’s unproven. Riley was never achievable - based on the contract details that have leaked, the package is really one that only a private school...

re: It has to be Fickell - CoachOeaux
I agree with other posters there’s no way he’s leaving Cincy this year. Has a generational chance to take a group of 5 program to a playoff. If he takes a job, with recruiting etc, he would have to announce it before the playoffs. That would crush his team and leave him looking like a real mercen...

re: If it's Rhule and Brady then get on board people. - CoachOeaux
I think he was an active recruiter but was only in BR for a year, and wasn’t really a known entity until mid season at which point his talents were focused on coaching. But the fact that he came from the NFL and jumped to the NFL after one year leads me to think he wants to be an NFL guy long term....

re: I’m convinced it’s Aranda - CoachOeaux
A lot of people nationally assume Aranda is staying because he and Baylor are “in talks” for an extension. Then why hasn’t he signed one yet, amidst a hot coaching carousel where he’s a very obvious candidate for a job? It just feels like he’s available and either (1) Baylor leaking that to warn...

Realistic Candidates/Reasons - CoachOeaux
Not going to come here with hopes that Saban or Dabo are coming over. I think they are looking at a current power 5 head coach - only way to explain not even pursuing Napier. Here’s realistic candidates still out there: Fickell: I just don’t see him leaving now. Cincy has the best shot of an...

re: Many people on here are going to look stupid after we hold USU to 10 points - CoachOeaux
They lost 9 out of 11 starters last season. The replacements are TERRIBLE, they were a top 10 offense (efficiency wise) last season but bottom half of the FBS so far this year despite playing terrible opposition. They can't run the ball and their skill position players do not have the athletic...

re: LSU same size favorite over Utah St as Vandy (-24.5) - CoachOeaux
Utah State's offense simply has not been good so far this year. They scored 62 against Stony Brook, but otherwise have been held to 35 points or lower by Wake Forest, San Diego State and Colorado State. Colorado State has the 123rd ranked defense in the FBS. Utah State's reputation comes from t...

re: Interesting Defensive stats - CoachOeaux
It can definitely be corrected, and part of it is probably just bad focus in blowouts. Watching the tackling, I sometimes get the sense that they are too comfortable with a big lead and just trying to make a big play or get a big hit. Hopefully they use Utah State as a real tuneup after the ...

re: Are we lacking aggression on defense? - CoachOeaux
I agree, blitzing is not in Aranda's DNA. Not blitzing means that the D-Line has to generate a pass rush, and that simply has not happened. LSU is 77th in the country in sack rate, despite having played 3 opponents with inferior O-Lines. That is a bit concerning, but likely due to injuries (mai...
