        That’s pretty damning considering what Orgeron is supposed to bring to the table.

          I’d fire him just because of his voice. It’s just so hard for me to listen to him talk without being irritated.

                        • I wonder who LSU is gonna go after.

                          Edit: I did see the report about Tucker though. He's having a good year.

                            If Urban ever coaches in college again, this might be his best shot.

                                This the dumbest thing in the world. And they want they have to pay him 17 million dollars.

                                • For a state that never seems to be financially sound, there sure seems to be plenty of $$ for a coach at LSU.

                                    Maybe, but realistically I'd rather coach USC than LSU. You get your pick of talent on the west coast basically and the talent you play against is mediocre. When a competent coach shows up there again they should be rolling and making the playoff regularly.

                                        Really? Maybe not in the rankings, but other than the 2020 class they've had recent recruiting classes ranked 7th, 20th, and 4th over the last few years. They're still getting talent, they just lack coaching.

                                          O is one of those guys who should never have been promoted above position coach. Heck of a recruiter and motivator, but he's just not equipped with the tools to sit in the big office. He can get a team fired up and motivated, and they can win on emotion. He just can't keep it going and win consistently over the course of several years He's good for a game or even a season. He's not a program builder. Once all the raw emotions and the rah rah wears off, it's all downhill from there. He's the perfect guy to be your interim coach that finishes a season and you keep him for the following season. That's all. His expiration date rolls around immediately after that, though.

                                          • LSU is the better job if you want to win a national championship. USC is the better job for sustained success.

                                            • It’s an interesting pool of coaches you don’t have the rising coach like Fleck or Campbell or Fickell last year, at least now yet.

                                              Looking at the Top 25. You’ve got Fickell but that was expected. I guess Mel Tucker is a “riser”. But you got a lot of the guys having good years that everyone has kind of known they are good coaches and don’t seem to either want to leave or get the interest. Gundy, Clawson, Doeren, Stoops, Ferentz.

                                              Looking at the G5, Brady Hoke is leading a undefeated SDSU?!? Coastal no surprise. Dykes doing his thing at SMU.

                                                • I bet Coach O is on Saban's radar at the very least an analyst.

                                                  • With all the shit raining on LSU right now, anyone at LSU who thinks hiring Urban Meyer is a good life choice is simply a moron that cannot be redeemed. Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

                                                    You'd have to assume they don't want Kiffin's baggage either. I think you have to give Tucker, Aranda and Billy Napier good long looks. This is going to come down to who builds the best staff and who can actually relate to a roster of mostly black players. A lot of what is being reported suggests Coach O had a staff of mostly older white guys and the players reached out to him to have discussion/interaction regarding racial inequality and he couldn't even pretend to care. That's digging your own grave.

                                                    Orgeron, it seems, won a national championship and then basically decided not to give a damn about his wife, players, or the job itself. If the reports are true from the last 16 hours or so, it sounds like his ego went completely off the rails in addition to doing some really stupid things that lost his locker room fast.

                                                    He rode Aranda, Brady and Burrow to a National Championship and then tore it all down. Sounds like this guy has demons he needs to get back into the box again.

                                                    It is no coincidence that the growth of modern tyrants has in every case been heralded by the growth of prejudice.

                                                      There are 10 assistant coaches in their online roster breakdown - four appear to be white and 6 are black, including the D coordinator and assistant head coach. They all appear relatively young, except the special teams coordinator. He could be older or maybe this team has aged him.

                                                        He did name new coordinators this season. This was likely a suggestion from the AD. Both look like they could have a bright future in the game but to expect immediate success from 1st time coordinators was a tall order.

                                                        I suspect the three likely candidates are Stoops, Aranda & Napier. They’ll make Jimbo say ‘no’ to them. I’m torn about Franklin. Is SC or LSU more attractive to him? Or does he simply use his being in demand as leverage for a contract extension? I think it’ll be the latter.

                                                        Stoops should stay in Lexington where he can sign all the Ohio kids that tOSU doesn’t want and an 8-win season isn’t a fireable offense. On the other hand, LSU recruits itself & if idiots like Lesticles & Crazy Ed can win a natty there, Stoops should be able to as well. Comes down to what kind of pressure cooker he wants to live in and how bad he wants a natty.

                                                          I will guess the article I read was referring to the 2020 staff, which was way different from this year's.

                                                          I think some of this stems back to last year's OC and DC when he had those jobs open after winning the Natty. Orgeron called Pete Carroll about who to replace Aranda with and Poodle was all over Bo Pelini, who had not coached in the Power 5 for a while and wasn't setting the world on fire at Youngstown State. Orgeron admitted to not fully interviewing Pelini and it was a disaster.

                                                          The offensive staff was comprised of Steve Ensminger, James Cregg and Scott Linehan, all of whom are now gone. Defensively he had Pelini and DL coach Bill Johnson, who is now retired at age 66.

                                                          There was significant turnover from 2020 to 2021 and it appears Orgeron hired younger and or black staff but evidently that locker room is already gone.

                                                              I'm just remembering how the LSU and Texas job both came open and were hot. Both coaches fired now. Yikes

                                                                You'd have to assume they don't want Kiffin's baggage either. I think you have to give Tucker, Aranda and Billy Napier good long looks. This is going to come down to who builds the best staff and who can actually relate to a roster of mostly black players. A lot of what is being reported suggests Coach O had a staff of mostly older white guys and the players reached out to him to have discussion/interaction regarding racial inequality and he couldn't even pretend to care. That's digging your own grave.

                                                                Orgeron, it seems, won a national championship and then basically decided not to give a damn about his wife, players, or the job itself. If the reports are true from the last 16 hours or so, it sounds like his ego went completely off the rails in addition to doing some really stupid things that lost his locker room fast.

                                                                He rode Aranda, Brady and Burrow to a National Championship and then tore it all down. Sounds like this guy has demons he needs to get back into the box again.

                                                                        I'm just remembering how the LSU and Texas job both came open and were hot. Both coaches fired now. Yikes

                                                                        His last P5 job was Nebraska in 2014. How did he last so long at YSU and nobody else picked him up?

                                                                        I think they went all in for Freeman, didn't get him and Coach O went to Poodle and got bad advice. Poodle has been long gone from college football.

You can have different political and social views and still respect each other. There’s a difference between differing opinion and not hearing players out, see where Gundy and the Pokes are in the rankings today. You can sleep around and not have it overflow to bringing your girlfriend to practice or hitting on a brass members wife outside a gas station. Ed O’s problem was not just his social and political beliefs, it was how he handled them or in many cases, didn’t handle them.

That National Championship team was incredibly talented on the field and on the coaching staff. He lazily replaced two very good coordinators, lost a lot of talent to the NFL and lost any sense of humility that he may have had.

                                                                                              Highly doubt there is much reverberation here as it relates to recruiting, etc. Still, another opening on the carousel.

That National Championship team was incredibly talented on the field and on the coaching staff. He lazily replaced two very good coordinators, lost a lot of talent to the NFL and lost any sense of humility that he may have had.

                                                                                                They asked him to march with them and he basically blew it off, sent some assistant coaches and it was only one example of his aloofness in the last two years.

                                                                                                Dude went off the rails and now he's done.
