He would, however, create a major buzz not only here but in the CFB world which would put a lot more attention on our program which could really help. $1 million for him compared to Hud and i would take Miles any day of the week.
    I agree with you. Our next hire needs to create a big splash

    #5. KC Keller would have been great hire 7 years ago. He's would be a safe hire, but he's 59 years old.

    My 4 & 5 would be....

    4. Manny Diaz - DC at Miami
    - Has relationships in LA,Miss.,TX and South Florida. He can also bring in a staff with P5 experience due to his previous jobs. SEC,ACC,& Big 12

    5. Broderick Fobbs - HC at Grambling
    - UL grad assistant, strong Louisiana ties (UL,NSULA,McNeese),75% winning percentage, winning with little resources.
    Diaz would be interesting.

    True...but recruiting to LaSUe and to Louisiana are apples and oranges. It was a much easier sell to recruit the best to go to LaSue. And if he could actually coach, he could have competed and possibly won several national championships with the talent that went to LaSue. Now if he could recruit the same 4 star & 5 star athletes here, again, coaching would not matter as much because the athletes would be by far more dominant than any other teams in the Sunbelt. By talent alone, they would win more than they would lose.

    I highly doubt Les Miles could recruit the same type of players here that went to LaSue. Hence, he would be just another Baldwin.

    It's going to be a cold, blue world for some of you if we don't get another coach. I have trouble seeing UL coughing up the money. Look at the dissatisfaction expressed toward the basketball program and how long he's been there.

    I would say it's already a cold, blue world as far as the football program is concerned. Keep in mind, Farmer was released because he wasn't getting things done to T-Joe's satisfaction (or fans). Dr. Maggard was hired to bring UL in a new direction, time will tell.

    Les Miles had a good staff most years in Baton Rouge. But Les didn't think twice about recruiting his own group of problem athletes as well. Part of the problem for Coach Orgeron right now is the turnover of some 17 recruits including OL and DL that have left the program this past year plus. A hand full couldn't past random drug test and 3 or 4 others were dismissed after being arrested and others for academics. Those were Les Miles recruits.

    No we don't need a splash. It's not about winning the press conference. It's about finding someone who can win.

    Head Coach Will Hall. He can be the OC as well just like Leach.

    DC Tim Rebowe. We can pay him more than Nicholls. He is a great recruiter and he knows defense.


    No need to recreate the wheel or stop the presses. When troy hired Neal Brown they didn't set the world afire with the news, but now people are mentioning Troy as a top G5 program and Brown as the #1 candidate for a couple of upcoming SEC jobs.

    When Hud leaves, if Coach Hall hasn't been hired away yet, the promotion to HC is a no brainer.

    Basketball has not won at a level needed to maintain strong interest from the community. However they have had 4 winning seasons in a row while Football is likely to have 3 straight losing seasons. Football leadership is a greater concern.

    Don't see Rebowe leaving a head coaching position for coordinator position at UL...maybe a bigger school ranked in the top 25.

    He's a much better HC than he was a position coach.
