Talked to an LSU fan on the beach yesterday - they love Coach "O" because he's one of them. I didn't want to say it, but to me Coach "O" is the Brady Hoke of LSU. We'll see, but I'll bet on this being a two to three year run.

Of course it depends on the coaching staff he manages to hire under him.

I'm happy for Coach O.

With him being the D Coord. at USC, they fire their coach, appoint him interim then they hired someone else and he got let go. Fast forward to LSU, if after they fire Miles and appoint him interim and then hire someone else...he gets the stigma of a head coach killer and folks might be skeptical about adding him to their staff. He'd look like Eddie Mush from A Bronx'd just tear up your betting slips when you found out he bet on your horse.

Jeez, I had a feeling, the way those reports were worded the other night, that Herman to LSU was not going to happen. How often do we see these reports that "a deal is in the works" almost like someone saying "I'm 99% sure this will happen" to give themselves an out when it doesn't happen. Should have listened to my instincts.
