    Hope A&M likes Jimbo because they’re sure stuck with him. 60.6m reasons why.

      Orge can recruit and for some reason kids love him. He can rally the troops. Now he finally put his ego aside and got smarter coaches do the Xs and Os. He is now just a CEO, whether it works long term or now who knows. But there are a lot of coaches who wouldn't be smarter enough or have too much of an ego to do something like that. You have to give him credit where it is due. A good leader knows when what they are doing isn't working, and is able to set aside their personal views/ego to move to change to what will work.

        I don't believe Ogre is a competent coach for a second. What this season proves is he does not need to be. Just be a figure head and ramble incoherently, as long as you hire the right people around you. Can he keep doing it once the current assistants leave, whether it is Aranda or Joe Brady?

          He was in the convo for most overrated in the game, but the second he signed that thing all discussions ended. Not sure even fooley could top that level of stupid.

            Ogre put together a great staff, probably taking less money in order to do so. Likely get a bump in pay now, may just let the assistants have it to try and keep everyone in place for another season.

              That's a lot of money for eating boogers and wearing khaki pants.

                i'll give orgeron credit for realizing his preferred way of doing things wasn't going to work and changing things on offense in a radical way. LSU always had NFL talent on offense, this is the first time we've seen them used this way. something muschamp and others have shown no desire or ability to do

                  No reason to pay him more since there is zero chance he ever leaves.

                  His cajun schtick won't play anywhere else.

                    Ogre is still over paid. He's the next gene chizik. You'll see when Brady and burrow leave.
