    Absolutely. Not defending our situation and the buy out because it's insane as well but least Hud had early success here. LSU had all the negotiating power when they hired Orgeron, this is his dream job, a 12 million buyout before getting a W as an official head coach is just idiotic. They deserve all of this.

    LOLSU can plss and moan all they want.
    The legislator was very upset about the Les Miles buyout situation and was a key component of him not being fired after the A&M game. No way in hell they allow LOLSU to fire an pay him that amount of money. Private money doesn't matter. Politically, it looks awful for a broke state raising taxes in record numbers to allow it's flagship University to spend that kind of money on a football coach.

    They are stuck with Coach O.

    Furthermore, if LOLSU is allowed to buyout Orgeron, they can't say a damn thing about us buying out Hudspeth. Either way, its a win win for us.

    Somebody call Stevie and Kevin and tell them they need to contact Troy ASAP so that the can explain to the Trojans they are not supposed to do what they did Saturday. I mean, an SBC school acting like that. It's just silly.Who do they think they are. This is not the way we are supposed to do things here in the G5 and the SBC.

    What's even funnier is that people are actually ponying up $5 and $25 a pop thinking they'll make a difference. They have already raised about $280 of the $12m. At this rate, they'll have the money in less than 42,858 days!! Thats only 117 years away. Geaux tiggers

    Stevie P figured out how Nick Saban and Drew Brees are responsible for the Troy win.

    And espn1420 actually let that article make it to the website. I remember he had a few articles several months ago that sounded like a 3rd grader wrote them for his first oral presentation. Someone should keep an accumulation these stellar pieces that that can be used against them in any competitive bid/point system award of broadcast rights.

    I'm with you in that one. The day they hired that quick trigger idiot from Duke something like this was bound to happen. It came down to hiring O because he was b* hurt.

    Tigerploppings continues be be a chuckle fest.

    Well, then can he fire Alleva now?

    I'll cut his grass for life.

    All of the tools that got on here defending our big losses to SEC and other P5s need to also get busted in the nuts. We hear from them every year after Hud loses (without a giant killer game plan) that we're not supposed to compete at that level. We just play football to win SBC championships (which we don't)... and get bowl eligible.

    We should be way bigger football giant killers than Troy.

    Answer this. Why should we be that much better than Troy? What have we done that Troy hasn't?

    Legitimate question. Not attacking.

    The point is we haven't. We have all the tools and just as many resources if not more as Troy to be successful.
