re: Mel Tucker isn't a bad coach at all. - nvasil1
[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...

re: Mel Tucker isn't a bad coach at all. - nvasil1
[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...

re: Mel Tucker isn't a bad coach at all. - nvasil1
[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...

re: Stop with the Tucker-Tate Panic - nvasil1
[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...

re: Wouldn’t you think Woodward already made the hire? - nvasil1
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...

re: Stop with the Tucker-Tate Panic - nvasil1
[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...

re: Scott Woodward is not going through all of this just to hire Mel Tucker - nvasil1
[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? He had an 11-win seas...

re: Scott Woodward is not going through all of this just to hire Mel Tucker - nvasil1
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....

re: Link to LSU Football Press Conference (Woodward and O spoke about the decision) - nvasil1
[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
[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...

re: James Franklin Won 9 Games at Vanderbilt. Twice. - nvasil1
[quote]Would LSU really hire a coach who was part of a rape scandal after Ed Orgeron?[/quote] If Penn State, of all programs, vetted Franklin and was comfortable hiring him, then yes....

re: James Franklin Won 9 Games at Vanderbilt. Twice. - nvasil1
[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...

re: Go get Fickell. No way Cincy outbids LSU. - nvasil1
[quote]Has this been documented? Or is it a repeated taking point because is sounds like it can be right? [/quote] He's got 6 kids, and when he was hired for the Cincy job, he said he wanted to go a community where his family could set roots for 10-15 years. Never say never, but I'd be surprise...

re: Welcome Home - nvasil1
[quote]We have our name and are in active talks.[/quote] Penn State and Notre Dame had byes this week. I think it's probably Franklin or Kelly given the timing of all this. Napier was on a bye too, but I don't think he's any more than a backup option for Woodward....

re: Orgeron's off the field antics were worse than we thought. - nvasil1
[quote]If there were videos of most of us here the unemployment line would be endless. Let's not be so hypocritical.[/quote] Maybe it's just me, but I don't know anyone who creeps on random women at gas stations, or brings their frick buddies and their children to work with them. Especially a publi...

[quote]Is James Franklin really that great?[/quote] Three top-10 finishes, with 3 NY6 bowls, and a B1G championship is pretty fricking good. I'm not sure who you think we could realistically get with a significantly better resume. ...
