[quote]Investigations are something this board is not paying attention to or listening.[/quote] Yep, the 900lb gorilla sitting in the corner but the board doesn't want to notice. Your telling the truth but this board will bury its head in the sand. The Feds are digging around, I hope it doesn'...

re: "The buyout isn't your money so stop worrying about it" - PoppaD
[quote]17 million is a crap load to pay a coach to not coach.[/quote] Fyi, if you add in the current staff buyouts and the bad hires that Woodward was a part of last year, LSU boosters are paying 30 million for coaches not to coach. All in the same year he asked staff to take 5% pay cuts, laid...

re: Just talked to a dad of a former player - PoppaD
[quote]not a big time hire at all.[/quote] I vote it doesn't have to be a big time hire, hire the best coach that can build the LSU program. If Woodward decides that is Napier great. Wasn't it the maybe or maybe not board sauces that said it would be a big name hire. I dont believe them much...

re: Goodness Gracious, whats the total LSU is paying in buyouts? And is Woodward good at this? - PoppaD
[quote]Then stand aside and quit doubting the people that do this for a living, have the details on what the previous contracts allow or don't allow him to do, what that $17mm is actually buying. Then stop worrying about other peoples money and how they spend it. Sometimes you gotta spend money to m...

re: Why does coach O have such a high salary and buy out? - PoppaD
It's a terrible look to pay all these coaches to go away the same year you reduced staff, put in a hiring freeze until 2023, asked staff to take 5% pay cut, and went begging to the boosters for more money, because of the Covid shortfall in revenue. ...

[quote]The muh buyout crowd has a fetish for OPM and it's a bad look. [/quote] I'd say Woodward has a fetish for other people's money. How many times can he go to these "wealthy donor's" hat in hand?...

[quote]You're right PoppaD, I think we all learned something here today and we're beginning to question everything because of your insight LSU never should've fired Orgeron, now it's clear[/quote] Of course "O" needs to go. Did I question that? What I questioned is if the boards hero, the ...

Goodness Gracious, whats the total LSU is paying in buyouts? And is Woodward good at this? - PoppaD

re: The more I sit here and think about it…the more I think it’s going to be Jimbo. - PoppaD
[quote]We were SO close to getting him the first time. He and his wife both love Baton Rouge, they still have a ton of connections and close friends here. Most of all he’s tapped out of talent at A&M. Too much competition in Texas.[/quote] I dont buy it one bit. Alleva already negotiated in good...

re: Tate will override Woodward - PoppaD
B.S, Tate hasn't been around long enough to consolidate much power. He's a few months in. He may think he has a say but Woodward and the B.O.S will decide. A diversity candidate would be fine if he's the best fit, but if there is a proven big name option, Tate is going to get a lesson about how...
