  2. LSU has a coach. Announcement at 12 CDST

    Not really, it could tell you, some wanted to throw up demands. As always, years later the story will be told.
  3. Big Recruiting Push by O and Staff

    Yep , he is one that has been working the position at OC.
  4. LSU has a coach. Announcement at 12 CDST

    When O was at Old Mrs, he was making $900K. Now he's the lowest paid HC in the SEC West. He is allowing us to pay OC and DC's more. Dabo had his his coordinators total, being more than what he made. Les was given a raise at Okie St, he turn it down for himself, instead, giving it to his Asst's. Oh, from what I understand, Joe A did contact an agent for a couple more coaches. Testing the water with them.

  8. LSU Players And The NFL Draft 2017

    If you go back and look at one of my posts from the first game, this is along what I said. He doesn't play his height. He won't go 1st or early 2nd round. Needs to show he can play the position. Block better. Work the ball. Still a little thin. Needs to hit the weights. The only other Jr that has a shot is Goudchaux. A number of teams have been looking at him.
  9. The O!

    DeSean will do just great in the Pro's, some team is gonna get a hell of a player. I remember talking with his Dad down in the Super Dome the night before he was to play in the Championship game.

    Iowa has always paid this guy big money. Ferentz's record is nothing at all. the last 10 years, he's 78-51. Those last 10 years went like this... 6-7, 6-6, 9-4, 11-2, 8-5, 7-6, 4-8, 8-5, 7-6, 12-2. Not what you would call paying top dollar for results. We will know what O wants to do by the hire of an OC, and if any more staff changes are made. If O truly has faith in this Asst. Coaches, let them do their jobs, hold the accountable. He should do fine. Get the best players, hire a great staff. Oversee it.
  12. Talking with someone the other day on the NFL Draft and the LSU Players. He Like I see, three players that should be in the 1st round. Fournette, Adams and White. Some have White going early in the second. Looking back in last years draft, I think I saw only two NFL not taking a DB in the draft. One team, the Chiefs, drafted 3 CB in the draft last year. The Steelers first two draft picks last year, CB's. Look at it this way, when the clocks ticking and a team is up. They pick the highest rated CB on their board. Its a rush for them, but there is a need for DB's throughout the NFL. With teams spreading the field, you better have a team of DB's. They work into the Special Teams early. Some Mock Drafts have Fournette going as the 5th overall pick. Adams the next Tiger off the board, then White. Pocic is one that could go up in the second round. After that who knows. Hard to project drafts. Beckwith needs to ply the bowl game, the injury will have somewhat of an effect on his stock. As we starting getting closer into draft time, we will look deeper into the Jr's. that may go early.

    More and more head coaches are trying to get their Asst. Coaches more than year to year contracts. Two and Three year contracts. Trying to get multi years. Trying to get a little more stability on their staffs. As with anything, far from the perfect fit.

    Somewhat, but I know this, some coaches are having contracts going into the years 2025. Here's one... Ferentz Signs Contact Extension Worth $4.5 Million By Elwin Huffman September 6, 2016 9:11 PM Courtesy: Matthew Holst – Getty Images The University of Iowa has announced a contract extension for head football coach Kirk Ferentz through the 2025 season. The announcement was made by Director of Athletics Gary Barta, who said the deal was finalized and signed on Tuesday (Sept. 6, 2016). Ferentz began his 18th season as Iowa’s head coach on Saturday when the 17th-ranked Hawkeyes defeated Miami (Ohio), 45-21. Ferentz’s previous contract extended through the 2020 season. “I’ve said it many times, I would like Kirk to retire as a Hawkeye, and this contract is a strong statement toward that commitment,” said Barta. “Kirk’s dedication to the football program and the University of Iowa has brought national attention and recognition to the Hawkeyes for nearly 20 years. “Kirk is one of the top coaches in country. His commitment to winning, graduating student-athletes, and doing things the right way is unmatched by any program or coach,” added Barta. “There is strong momentum surrounding the Hawkeye football program. Whether it’s on the field, recruiting, academics, facilities, or with his staff, we’re achieving at a high level today, and are well positioned for continued success for years to come.”

    It does give them some stability in recruiting. It tells recruits, you come in, you red-shirt, I'll be here for your Sr year. It could end up that way.
