    I hear ya, but when a kid’s involved it’s hard to not understand uncertainty. Everyday kids make worse decisions than waiting till 11pm make a choice that will have a huge impact on their future. And if he was playing games, still on O. This was a driving force behind hiring O, remember.

    Exactly, he is supposed to win those battles.

    I would like to also point out that when he earned the "great recruiter" thing he was also thought to be very very dirty. Was that because he was recruiting against LSU at the time? I also remember a time years ago when his named was mentioned as possibly joining the staff under CLM and no one, myself included wanted him in the state of La. Much less on campus.

    Funny how times change

    can't do anything about now, he's already here... that being said, i still hoping when he leaves, it's not with us under heavy sanctions validating those past rumors...

    Not much has changed actually. Most don't want him but our landlords moved this squatter in.

    That would be the Alleva coup de grâce.

    They had to put the squatter in the house.

    LSU is not the dream job in the minds of most coaches right now. No one probably responded to the feelers Aleva put out that he passed on as a coaching search.

    Kind of tough to respond when your AD doesn’t put out feelers through normal professional channels, then makes a knee jerk decision in 24 hours when the interest that is there provides resistance.

    Makes me want to only sign recruits during the early signing period. But if I was in the kids' situation, I would want to know of any coaching changes at the end of the season before signing.

    I’m hoping the early signing period makes these kids who sign late few and far between (and obvious head cases who aren’t really worth it).
