  1. Coach Orgeron's New Staff

    Kiffin to LSU is not a done deal by any means.
  2. 2017 QB Myles Brennan

    Possibly. But it doesn't look like LSU getting Kiffin is close to being a done deal by any means.
  3. Big Recruiting Push by O and Staff

    Had forgotten to mention Lloyd Cushenberry who signed in the last class. Isn't he a candidate for OC? Think that's been mentioned before I believe. Think he's like 6'3", 313 or thereabouts. Could also play OG as well I'd imagine.
  4. 2017 QB Myles Brennan

    That would sum it up nicely.
  5. 2017 QB Myles Brennan

    IMO it has everything to do the the "spread offense bs". Everything was fine with Brennan until Coach O came out with that. And as you say it was exactly opposite of what he said not long after he took over from Miles, when he said he wanted to run a pro-style offense.
  6. 2017 QB Myles Brennan

    Hope Shea is right. You'd think he would've have taken the chance on losing Brennan, when he said LSU was going to the spread, without a contingency plan. At least I hope that's the case. Lowell Narcisse, although he's a great prospect, is hopefully not the contingency plan Coach has in mind. The kid's blown out his ACL twice, so who knows how healthy he'll be able to stay in college. LSU does have Lindsey Scott, so is that part of it? Did Scott run the spread at Zachary HS? Also, Scott simulated Jalen Hurts in preparation for the Bama game, so did he do so well at it that O feels he can go spread with him? No idea of course, but I just find it hard to believe that LSU has even a snowball's chance in hell of pulling Tagovailoa from the Gumps. IMO it would absolutely be one of the greatest recruiting coups in college football history if that happened. Don't know if this has anything to do with Lane Kiffen or not, but I'm sure going to be disappointed as hell if LSU loses Brennan and then don't get Kiffen or Tagovailoa. That would just suck all the way around.
  7. 2017 QB Myles Brennan

    That would be nice.
  8. 2017 QB Myles Brennan

    Wow. Just frigging wow! Didn't take long for Coach O to run off the best QB prospect that LSU has had in a long time. Unbelievable!
  9. Big Recruiting Push by O and Staff

    Absolutely agree on both fronts Dad. Pulling Shannon Reid and Levi Jones, to go along with Queen, would be huge. Got to get at least those three if possible. Flipping Dylan Moses would be a monstrous turn of events. From the sounds of things I think the Chris Allen boat has sailed, even though LSU is going to continue to recruit him. LSU definitely has some great young LB talent on the team right now in Devin White, Michael Divinity, Ray Thornton and Donnie Alexander. Cory Thompson coming back next year will help a lot on the outside, but adding Reid, Jones, Queen and possibly Moses is critical for sure. Hopefully the prospect of playing LB in Dave Aranda's defense will make it happen with those kids. IMO what LSU really needs at LB are the thumpers, in the mold of Beckwith, to play at the ILB spots. They've got to have those kids in the 235 - 250 lb range to shut down the runs up the middle. We saw what happened against Florida when Beckwith went down. Devin White can play on the inside, but who's going to join him there? I'd say Michael Divinity most likely. Think he's already in the 235 - 240 range. Also hoping that maybe Layton Garnett, the preferred walk-on from West Monroe, can develop into a player who can contribute snaps at ILB. He's in the 240 -250 lb range already. On the OL, keeping Deculus in this class is crucial. He's a sure fire college OT prospect who would likely compete for playing time from day one. Out of the other three OL commits in the class, both Saddiq Charles and Ed Ingram are OG's. Seth Stewart is an OT prospect, but he's not likely going to challenge for playing time for a year or two. Hopefully K. J. Malone and Toby Weathersby continue to develop at tackle, although I think Malone would be a better guard. Supposedly Jakori Savage, who redshirted this year, has the athleticism to play at OT. Hopefully he'll show up in spring ready to play.
  10. Coach Orgeron's New Staff

    Brennan not being happy worries me. Unless Coach O is about 110% sure (at minimum) of landing Kiffen and Tagovailoa, why would you want to take the chance of pissing off Brennan possibly lose him? This is troubling to me to say the least. I don't want LSU to lose Brennan. Period. Kid is AWESOME!
  11. 2017 QB Myles Brennan

    OK. So now LSU offers Alabama's #1 QB commit, Tua Tagovailoa, a 5* dual threat QB from Hawaii who's been committed to the Gumps for a while. What's going on here? Just what brought this offer on out of the clear blue like this? Is LSU so confident of landing Lane Kiffen as our new OC that they think they can pull this kid to LSU? That's kinda what it looks like on the surface. Kinda worries me though because do we really want to run Myles Brennan off, who's been a solid LSU commit through this whole shyt show we've been through the last two months, before we've even hired Lane Kiffen (or somebody else) as the OC? In addition, Coach O came out publicly in the last couple of days that he wants to run the spread at LSU, not pro-style, which is what he said just after he took over as interim coach. Brennan is more of a pro-style QB, although he is pretty mobile. So what is it here? This is a really a strange and dangerous move by LSU IMO. Does LSU feel so confident in hiring Kiffen and this offer to Tagovailoa that they're willing to take the chance on losing Brennan and/or Narcisse? I'll be honest here, I don't want to lose Myles Brennan for any QB in the country right now. This kid is effing awesome and exactly what LSU needs right now. Plus, he loves LSU and the staff. Coach O, don't screw this up unless you're 110% sure Kiffen is coming and the same percentage that Tagovailoa is coming. LSU is playing with fire right now. Oh, and now Okie Lite has offered Brennan.
  12. LSU has a coach. Announcement at 12 CDST

    The Jimbo "smoke screen" is what pisses me off the worst out of this whole deal. It's just unbelievable to me that LSU's talks with him weren't even serious, especially after they were so close last year. Sounding more and more like it was all about saving money in the end. F'king may have forced the issue on Alleva to "hire cheap". If so, he should be first out the door with Alleva right behind him. Hiring cheap shouldn't even enter into a hire at LSU. Go out and get the best available coach. Period. But now the die has been cast.
  13. LSU has a coach. Announcement at 12 CDST

    Jimbo was my first pick and Herman second. I'm not thrilled with Coach O either, but there ain't a hell of lot we can do about it. Continuing to bitch about it ain't going to change anything either. Just sayin'.........
  14. LSU has a coach. Announcement at 12 CDST

    Now this is what really me off! Apparently, Jimbo Fisher wasn't really considered seriously for the job. He was just a decoy evidently. They were on going after Herman or Orgeron. Period.
