    I think most of us already know that Florida is a great job in a very fertile recruiting area. So how does Mullen being fired affect LSU? My thinking is unless we already have someone locked down in a contract - which I don't think we do - this is really going to shake up the search and could cost LSU even more to land the coach they want. Personally, I think Kiffin is perfect for the Florida job because he reminds me a lot of Spurrier with that high powered offense and is not afraid to take a chance every once in a while. My pick for LSU is still Hugh Freeze because he's a proven HC and we could probably get him at a bargain price. He understands the SEC and has won in the league, despite not always having the best talent. I know he has baggage, but he's kept his nose clean for a few years now. Then again, every HC is a huge gamble to a certain extent. I guess we LSU fans can only hope Woodward has our next HC nailed down and is just waiting for the right time to announce it. I have a gut feeling that as more HC jobs open up, Napier may end up being the guy. My biggest concern is the Sun Belt is several levels below the SEC and can he have the same success at LSU? At this point, I'm just ready to find out who the next HC will be ... as long as it's not Fisher!

    I'm not banging the drum for Napier, if he is the hire than he is the hire. I am a bit tired of hearing "but he coaches in the sun belt"

    So fucking what? Can he coach or not? Do they play with different rules there? Only 10 allowed on Defense? Seriously, this "he coaches in blah blah conference " is so dumb. Almost taintish

    I’ve been watching and betting on usl every week and they are a well oiled machine and Napier would be great here. He’s prollly the best available coach.

    Article today in The Advocate that Title IX will be a consideration in hiring of the new coach. Past incidents involving Jimbo Fisher, Lincoln Riley, and James Franklin were mentioned where they all looked away and/or defended players who committed rape. Freeze was not mentioned, but NO way in hell he will be considered.

    Are you sure? Because some here would have you believe he is Ted fucking Lasso because he coaches in a conference where they play under CFL rules or rugby or some shit.

    We could also hire a successful high school coach. Coaching at a big time college comes with different challenges.

    I haven’t watched USL, maybe he’s great. Aranda is doing it (though not as long) at a comparable level to LSU.

    It has also been mentioned that he wasn’t a successful coordinator and neither Saban nor Dabo elected to use him as an OC. Seems like another CEO, which I’m not crazy about.

    I agree that Freeze won't be given strong consideration, but I think he would do a great job if given the chance. Someone is going to give him a chance one day and I hope we don't regret letting him walk by!
