I was wrong about Coach O so was USCw
In the past, I've referred to him as a Bayou Caveman and the second coming of Curly Hallman. I have to admit that I was wrong. He's become more of a Cajun Dabo Swinney than a caveman. I'm also impressed by his search for tactical innovation and his Humility.

I bet USC is punching themselves in the balls for not keeping him. I bet he would be surfing in Santa Monica or MAlibu, signing 5 star recruits, developing a charming california accent, and dominating the Pac 12 if the Trojans had done the right thing and not the stupid USC thing they've done the past decade. Anyway, good for Coach O.

Coach O is a good redemption story. With that said, Frick LSU. I hate your entire fanbase and your state.

You are much healthier than a few posters over on the Rant who still can't admit that they might have been wrong.

re: I was wrong about Coach O so was USCw
They didn’t only “ not keep him “ , their effete West Coast administration made sure to let it be known privately and publicly that even the thought of such an uncouth man running their program was a gauche impossibility . Coach O , had he been hired, would have wrapped up SoCal recruiting, hired an excellent staff and had them in the top five. He was the PERFECT man to solve the particular problem they had, but they wanted white collar instead of blue collar.

USC has made much bigger mistakes than letting O go. He doesn't fit in there at all, and that does make a difference.

He is the perfect fit at LSU culturally, is proving to actually be a good coach, and more importantly, recognizes his faults and allows experts to make changes in order to win. And of course hes always been a great motivator/recruiter. We'll see if he can keep the train rolling.

I think we need to pump the breaks a bit on the win at Texas.

How many times are we told in August and September that Texas is "back"?... only to watch them fall apart in October and November.

Coach O has certainly done a great job up to this point. He's got LSU in a good spot, but how do we know this Texas team is even truly a Top 20 team right now. LSU could still very easily lose 3 or 4 games, and if that were to happen, would this praise for Orgeron still persist? I think not.

Let's wait and see how LSU does in the SEC before we anoint him coach of the year.

That's not too far off

Agreed. You can definitely tell he learned from his failures at Ole Miss and has developed into a pretty good coach. Not ready to say he is great yet but he definitely is on the right track.

I think him not getting the job there is one of the reasons he grew as a coach. So while I do think you're right, I don't think he would have been as good as he is now without that disappointment.

re: I was wrong about Coach O so was USCw
Totally agree with you, there couldn’t be a more perfect fit for LSU than Orgeron.

People seem to get the idea that if a coach fails at a place like Ole Miss (which is a very hard school to win at), that they aren’t capable of evolving, recognizing and learning from their shortcomings and improving on them.

It’s a really stupid thing to think when you have a coach like O that is humble. Humility is one of the greatest strengths a HC can have, knowing when things aren’t working and making the effort to change (i.e. offensive philosophy). Had Les not been so stubborn and proud, LSU might well have won another national title or 2 and he would still be there today.

Idk if O could've had the same success at USC that he's having at LSU. O is the perfect fit at LSU.

LSU can “easily” lose half of our SEC games this year?

Fair.

One question though. How many times have teams hung 450+ yds on a Texas defense in Austin?

Once.

No one is saying this. Just that the criticism of the initial hire, myself included, and ridicule of LSU for making the move from interim to HC was short-sighted and jumping the gun with only the evidence of the disaster that was/is Ole Miss.

Is it embarrassing to provide this recommendation after Coach O demoralized UGA by 20?

So if I said something like how many top 10 teams has joe burrow beat at home, I can negate all but 1 of his wins over top 10 teams as well. It would be very disingenuous to do such.

Long season ahead. Texas could end up being poo. No one really knows...

If he goes 10-3 again then I'd agree that he's better than most expected but still never going to win a title.

If he goes 11-1 or 12-0 and wins the West/makes the playoffs then I'd say we all were wrong.
