    While bashing Orgeron is presently counterproductive, bashing Trump has gotten us to the point where Steve Bannon says he has only a 30% chance of finishing his term. I'd say a football issue is minor compared to a nutjob in the White House.

    Yep. It could be argued he was fired because he couldn't even compete with Saban, let alone beat him. But if you're going to fire your coach because he can't beat Saban.......shit.

    Although, I don't think it's too much to ask to be more competitive and maybe win 1 or 2 out of 5. Especially at home leading in the 4th quarter.

    you are either really young, or choosing to ignore history.

    people still haven’t forgiven Miles for losing to tennessee in ‘05. his second game ever at LSU. i was on this board and there was a lot of hate thrown at Miles even when he was sitting at 11-1.

    and the postgame show for the UAB game in 2000 was filled with venom for Nick Saban. his fourth ever game in a true rebuilding season.

    I know. I was at the 2012 game (damn screen pass) everybody in the stadium new as soon as Bama got the ball back we had already lost.

    Then 2014 let them tie it up for OT.

    Yes Fuck You John Chavis!

    Yes comparing wins with Saban is just stupid, you can count on one hand how many coaches have beat him in the last 5 years. He is not the guy you use as a measuring stick of your program. Sure you keep shooting for that kind of excellence but you are not going to dominate him, which is what LSU fans wanted, because we were the jilted girlfriend. I'm with you, as long as we are competitive and win a few of those games and titles then we're good. Miles had slipped below that which is why some of us saw a need for change. We could have done better with that change because now we are not going to even win the ones we're supposed to i.e. Troy!

    There's no satisfying the LSU (moneyed) fan base....the TAF.

    That's why up and coming coaches are leery of coming to LSU. That's why Aleva couldn't find a coach to say yes and we ended up with Orgeron.

    We need to fire Aleva. Hire an up and coming ATHLETIC DIRECTOR while we give Orgeron a chance and let His buyout get smaller.

    A year long coaching search is necessary before Orgeron gets fired because LSU needs to be sold. The new AD can not assume, like Aleva did, that coaching prospects capable of competing with Saban and Bama are drooling to come here at the drop of a hat.

    All the pieces need to be secretly in place before Orgeron is fired.

    If we were to play Troy nine more times this year how many games do you think they would win?
