All O is doing is moving up the time table for LSU to make another run at a new coach.  This time they may get competence and then what are you gong to do?

What this shows is you can fire a coach with a football IQ of 115 and hire a coach with a football IQ of 98.  It's probably what we would do, and is the best argument for accepting the current mediocrity.

Not according to the SEC Network (and Ed O during his postgame) -- they say the problem is a lack of talent.  WTH!?!?

Cowards

Les Miles needed to be fired regardless. If O does flame out he will be easy to fire.

LSU is a program with the potential to be ELITE. Les Miles had settled into being good in a program with Elite potential just like Richt at Georgia.

Good is not acceptable to be good where you can be great. They will find a coach that can bring the program closer to it's potential at LSU.

Sticking with Miles was accepting less than their potential because it's still a really good year at 90 other programs. I have much more respect for people that flame out pursuing greatness than those are comfortable with good enough when the resources exist to be great.

Georgia is setting up to have a tremendous season that could be the springboard to reestablish them as an elite program in all of college football because they had the the courage to pursue greatness and fire Richt even though he was comfortably good nearly every year.

Faint hearts never won fair lady.

Agree.  All they need is a Saban light and we may never beat them again.

To be fair, he's caused a major exodus along the offensive and defensive lines;  they have some players,  but little experience and not enough talent to overcome that lack of experience. 

Orgeron's played hell with their depth chart, and LSU is feeling the pain right now.

I think Orgeron is a great coach for LSU and they would be silly for firing him right now. He needs another 10 years there. :)

Terrible argument.  It's already what we did.  BP set us up for it, of course, but we undoubtedly went from a 135 to a 95.  Probably won't do worse than 95 if we changed again.  And I don't even think BB should be terminated.  Yet.

Exactly. Irony the OP is judging a coach on his first year there? Say it ain't so? I thought it took a minimum of 5-6 years to rebuild a program?

I was really disappointed when LSU fired Miles because I though he had indeed learned to do Les with more. I was sure they would find an elite replacement.

I was pissed when they appointed Orgeron as interim coach because I had immediately decided the only way LSU could fail in finding an elite coach was to promote someone familiar from the staff -- and no AD would be flat out dumb enough to move Orgeron to permanent coach.

I'm afraid he's going to fail too fast too cheaply, though, and they'll be on the market for a real coach. LSU can be like Alabama if they find the right coach. Then the ceiling on the SECW will be impossible to break.

Joe Alleva is the dumbest AD in America.

Firing Les Miles to hire Ed Orgeron is like firing George Patton to hire Gomer Pyle.

I imagined he was hired as an unofficial interim for this year, that LSU lost out on Herman, and they would keep their powder dry so as to make a deal with a real hitter later.

But then I saw the twelve million buyout, and I thought, HUH????

I lived down there for a while back in the early 2000's...matter of fact I got to see the Hogs sweep LSU for the first time ever in Baton Rouge in 2004  in small ball....anyway, to understand the people down there you must live among them as I did...my girlfriend was a 1994 graduate of LSU and a HS teacher in Thibodaux (home of Nicholls St, used to drive by there every day on my way to my girlfriend' father's doctor's office)...short story long, its EVERY year they feel like they have superior talent in football to everyone, yes even mighty BAMA back in those days....cajuns are a breed apart...but allow me to tell you something I noticed about LSU fans, they talk a big game, but when it comes down to the actual game day or night game or game at the PM Assembly center, they fear Arkansas because they think we are lucky...swear on my vote for DJT
