    I need someone to explain to me why Kiffin would leave Alabama for a job that isn't a head coaching job, because I'm drawing a blank. More control? More money?

    ---Just that Bebe is a very close friend that has worked with him in the past---like he said prior to the A Game--he is more than a football friend!!!

    I'm surprised they selected O, but I agree with you. If they get a high IQ OC... they could be very dangerous.

    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".

    Herman is a Texas Ex and this is his dream job. My wife and all alumni wwere emailed a letter from the UT AD about the hire to be officially introduced in a press conference tomorrow.

    Californians thought Sarkisian drank too much. He would be right at home in Louisiana.

    This morning, Houston talk radio hosts were laughing at the thought of Kiffin leaving Saban's sideine to join Orgeron in BR. Just shows you the arrogant attitude Tigguh fans have to think he would leave a position on a national championship program who cold match any offer to move to BR.

    Actually, I can't explain it.....I'm just delivering info that I was told by someone I trust.

    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.

    And in the clip i saw, alleva looked like a moron doing it. Talked in circles and babbled. Idk the circumstances of some of the other coaches in the country, but the search seemed to be pretty narrow. It was either A, B or C.

    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.

    Maybe he's tired of getting his _____ chewed by Little Nicky on tv or otherwise is tired of working for him. He's also buddies with Coach O. Signs supposedly were he was leaving there anyway-which is why Saban brought Sark in as a (one of many) consultant this year. Maybe he gets a head coaching gig elsewhere but rumors are that's who O has lined up.

    Lets see now Tallahassee Florida or Baton Rouge Louisiana. Hmmmm where do i want my family to be. But wait Florida has no State income tax. But wait econimy in Florida economy in Louisiana. But wait funding for Florida Schools funding for Louisiana schools. Sounds like a tough decision to me. (Yeah right)


    Substitute Austin Texas for Tallahassee and Texas for Florida and you get the same thing.

Sorry , that's the LOUISIANA RAGIN CAJUN in me.
    If lsu wanted this guy, they should have taken the advise of Don Coreleone, never let the enemy know what you are thinking, meaning, when lsu let it out he was their choice, he asked for $6M. Now, would you pay a guy, $6M, as a first year coach. Now, Texas being desperate and full of money is doing it. lsu shot themselves in the foot. I like Coaches, I think Coach O is deserving of a chance to coach lsu. I heare he was given only a 1 year contract, is that true?

    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.

    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!!!
