I'm not an LSU fan, but I do like Coach O and wish him well.
LSU settled on choice #3. Like McDonald's, I'm lovin' it. I'm sure he's a good guy, but they'll need an interpreter for "Grover".
LSU just LSU'ed the hire. They back themselves into impossible corners, settle tremendously, and then they are lauded as "doing it right." O will fail...because he is in an impossible situation. LSU exists in a vacuum.
LSU could win or lose, don't care.
But as an observer of the sports scene....Alleva is a glory seeking moron. He wanted miles gone so he could hire someone and get the credit for subsequent success. Then he micromanages the search, and get told thanks but no thanks by a wise Jimbo Fisher. Then he thinks he can wow Herman into taking whatever he offers just cause they are LSU. When Herman's agent does his job and uses a competitor to get his client the best deal, Alleva acts all -fumble- cause someone dared not jump at a chance to coach the mighty tigers. Of course he jumped on Orgeron. He found someone who would do anything to coach the tigers, even work for Alleva. Why did he call him at 5 am? "Watch me make this man jump".... that's why. I hope orgeron succeeds only because it's apparently his dream job, and he busted his ___ to get it. But Alleva doesn't deserve it to be a success.
Substitute Austin Texas for Tallahassee and Texas for Florida and you get the same thing.
Now, with limited funds by myself and other Ragin Cajun loyals, I wish I could give more to buy Hud out. I don't like his brand of football, it is Division III in my feeling. I am not criticizing the players, just that our coaching staff is only good for Division III. Watching other college teams, I just can't believe we can win with his style of football. Yesterday's performance was pure GUTS on the PLAYERS PART.
Congratulations to them for performing with a subpar coaching scheme.
I saw no coaching skills taught. I mean, our defensive backs were playing 10-15 yards back of receivers on critical plays as if they were defending big plays instead of all plays. It is boring football.
Sorry, for 50 years I have been supporting Bulldogs and Cajuns and will continue, but LA football is so BORING.
Congrats to those fighters who have been screaming to have our Teams referred to as Louisiana or ULL instead of the dreaded Louisiana-Lafayette. The announcer again referred to us a Lafayette. I almost threw my shoe into my TV.
so will LSU A&M games have subtitles now so people can understand what coach O is saying
Wish I didn't pull for Bebe and liked him so much
all the guys I have coached with love him and loved the time that they coached with him of have known him---When you talk with him, he is self confident of his new role and philosophy on life after some struggles
i hate that he is at LSU, but he seems to have a special gift of communication with kids!!!
