re: Mel Tucker isn't a bad coach at all. - nvasil1 on 10/18/21 at 12:08 am
[quote]My only point is that if you can’t get a A tier candidate then Tucker isn’t really all that more or less risky than a lot of guys out there[/quote] In my opinion, Tucker is more risky than others because we don't really know that much about him in terms of running a program. He's coache...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Mel Tucker isn't a bad coach at all. - nvasil1 on 10/17/21 at 11:50 pm
[quote]This is true, but by the same token if they finish 11-1 will you still hate the idea of hiring him?[/quote] I would still have a problem with it. It's his 2nd season, and he brought in a ton of transfers. If one great year is good enough, then we should be talking more about your man PJ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]I know you guys want the next Saban, but this guy took a rock bottom Michigan State team and has them in the hunt right now. Isn't what we want someone who can come in and have success immediately? He checks that box. [/quote] Let's not act like he took over Kansas. MSU had been to 3 st...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Stop with the Tucker-Tate Panic - nvasil1 on 10/17/21 at 11:13 pm
[quote]I guess that means Aranda is off the table too logically.[/quote] If all those other guys are off the table, then absolutely, Aranda should be too. And just to be clear, that doesn't mean I dislike any of those coaches. After Orgeron though, I want LSU to hire someone with a more sustain...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Wouldn’t you think Woodward already made the hire? - nvasil1 on 10/17/21 at 11:02 pm
Woodward claimed at tonight's press conference that the search "starts now". However, tigerbaitlawyer said earlier today that Woodward had his name, and talks were ongoing. That doesn't mean an agreement is in place, but Woodward has a track record of getting his guy. He might be closer to a de...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Stop with the Tucker-Tate Panic - nvasil1 on 10/17/21 at 10:49 pm
[quote]Maybe he actually is doing a great job. If so, why wouldn’t we consider a guy who took a rough Michigan State program and won 10-11 games 2 years in?[/quote] Because it's just one season. If that's an acceptable standard for LSU, then guys like Clawson, Fleck, Chadwell, and Tom Allen sho...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]if mel beats purdue and maryland it will be a good season and solid turnaround in year 2 at michst. if he has competitive games against and/or upsets mich, pennst or ohiost then i'd say he's a good candidate.[/quote] How good of a candidate is PJ Fleck in your eyes?

re: Scott Woodward is not going through all of this just to hire Mel Tucker - nvasil1 on 10/17/21 at 8:55 pm
Orgeron's guy Bruce Feldman initially dropped the line about "highly influential" people liking Tucker, then suddenly his name popped up everywhere on potential candidate lists this afternoon. I'm convinced that leak was a red herring so Woodward can quietly nail down the coach he actually wants....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Link to LSU Football Press Conference (Woodward and O spoke about the decision) - nvasil1 on 10/17/21 at 7:27 pm
[quote]What did he say at the end? U guys better get off the sofa?[/quote] I think he basically apologized for getting the media off the sofa during the Sunday Night game to cover this press conference.:lol:...

re: It might be a meh hire, but stop downplaying what mel tucker has done this year - nvasil1 on 10/17/21 at 6:48 pm
[quote]Nearly all of the major players on this msu team are transfer portalers.[/quote] That's a terrifying endorsement for a guy who has only been a head coach for two and half years. Tucker shouldn't even be on the radar for LSU. I feel like his name was leaked to the media just to stir up sh...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote] Franklin has always run a boring offense[/quote] Well, that's not true. Joe Moorhead basically got the Mississippi State job because of how dynamic the Penn State offense was when they were Big Ten champions, and went to the Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl. They also haven't had an OC for mor...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
