As a long time avid LSU basketball fan (well, used to be until it was sent to [poop] by Alleva), I am saddened to see LSU football get the same treatment as basketball. Just go ahead and hire the good ole home grown boy that is comfortable and feels good. It will work out just fine. We can only hope it will go as well as it has with Johnny Jones.
Or...... we win a shitload of games with Coach O and his crew. Maybe even a couple championships. Then in a few years we learn of sanctions and have to forfeit games and said championships.
That's where I am at right now. Very much apathetic otherwise and have been for quite some time. Hell many of you know me and how passionate I have always been about LSU football. And some of you know my past basketball passion. I mean come on, I started a LSU site from scratch even!
But now I just casually follow it all. And keep my distance. Making it all about enjoying time with friends and family in the process of watching LSU and enjoying game days.
What irritated me today about the announcement was when Joe said this was never going to be a bidding war. Well hell, the ONE candidate he actually legitimately went after (debatable) he gets his panties in a wad when the coach actually starts to want to negotiate the salary and leverage other options. Joe folded and didn't do jack [poop] to play his cards to get the guy to come to LSU. No, he went the comfortable route instead. And then gloated about it in front of everyone! How f'd up is that t be proud of not being willing to perform some of your most basic duties as an athletic director!??!?! F that guy!
