    You usually have to win the sec to get to the playoffs anyway. Win here and the national title has often been much easier. I think it was 08 one of our players said as much in the postgame interview. When playoffs expand, you can get a second shot at the sec champ.

    I would only say that they appear to want to try harder than us. And where that leads is up to speculation.

    The only issue is that Oklahoma is going to go SEC and so its luster is going to go down. But still we are talking about a lateral move. Why when you are on top where you are?

    Florida shares recruiting with the entire nation and LSU doesn’t. That’s not going to change. In Florida, you see tons of other college gear represented. In Louisiana, LSU is all you see.

    I was supporting your notion and reminding you that as shiny as Oky is today it isn't going to be as much in the future. But regardless, Oky>LSU is a lateral move.

    Uf is still a better job than lsu, or at least is with the right guy running it. All these schools are the same at the top. Wrong guy in charge and they’re as inept as everyone else. Does anyone remember bamar from mid 90’s to mid 00’s?

    what I will give bamar credit for is they don’t pussyfoot around when a dude isn’t that guy. As soon as they realize he’s not his ass is gone. The “squint ur eyes and u can make urself see a rembrant “when ur looking at dogs playing poker drives me nuts

    Wow you’re 100% right, I misread that. Sexton deserves an extra 5% for that deal, insane.

    So we going after Jimbo or what?

    I think it will be Napier, and I think although the LSU fan will be disappointed they didn’t get the “big” name, they will be ultimately very happy with the pick. Napier will win big there.

    You basically provided the answer on why the LSU position is better.

    Not if the UF administration keeps screwing up trying to placate the governor like they have lately. UF's rep is suddenly going in the wrong direction across the board.

    On the other hand, the cajuns have never been concerned about academic ranking. They do have the NCAA on their tails, but the NCAA has been toothless of late. Bad PR, but PR doesnt win/lose games.

    I'm going to put in for both jobs whenever they come open. All I care about in my contract is the buyout clause.
