    They sure swing for the fence, don’t they?

    I’m thinking they are in the “Ron Zook” zone, however, and they are just in denial.

    Disclaimer: I like the Zooker.

    I really want this to happen. I think Kelly plays nobody, gets ranked and then blown out by any decent team. Let's see how it works out in the SEC.

    I also remember him making a kid stay in a video tower on a windy day, against everyone's advice, and the kid died.

    So terrible coach and murder, way to go LSU.

    They should hire Muschamp he is at least familiar with the SEC and know how to recruit

    Kelly has been good lately (other than in the playoffs), but has averaged roughly 9-4 seasons overall, with lots of 8-win seasons and a 4-8 season…

    They need to quit talking and just act!
    They’re beginning to look like fools… like TN

    Have they seen what happens when Kelly coaches against an SEC team?

    A couple of LSU reporters were pushing the idea that LSU were idiots for letting someone else hire Napier out from under their noses while they picked at bellybutton lint. Their fans have taken that as “Napier was begging us for an interview.”

    That said, I wouldn’t totally write off this Kelly story. I don’t think it would be a good hire, but it might be a possible one. There have been some rumors this year that his agent/surrogates have been pushing his name for the big openings because he thinks he’s reached the ceiling of what is possible to accomplish at ND in this era (i.e., you might occasionally slide into the playoffs from bad competition and then get destroyed when you do).

    I wonder if they're missing Les Miles yet?

    I wouldn't be shocked if they end up with Freeze.

    Gotta love the Urban vetting:

    “Regarding Urban, you do some forensic video analysis to make sure what his hands were doing in that video of the lady grinding on him...and keep him (on the list) or toss him accordingly.”

    You can not make that up. I love LSU fans.

    Between the finance issues at LSU and Title IX lawsuits, I don’t know who wants that headache. Granted new SECN deal may solve some of the financial issues.

    Never understood why ND doesn’t recruit at an elite level. There’s a natural advantage with every catholic high school in the country.

    Their AD is a big game hunter. His ego won't let him hire someone that isn't seen as an A+ swing for the fences grand slam type.

    I think where this leaves you, though, is that LSU is about to pay through the nose for anyone at a big name school they can get, no matter how bad the fit might be, just so they can insist their coaching search didn’t strike out.

    Because a guy from Massachusetts who has only ever coached at his alma mater in MA and in the upper Midwest makes no sense whatsoever in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

    Which is even funnier because they aren't going to get him.

    And I'm going to keep right on smirking how Lane Kiffin is a choice somewhere between "Nth" and "zero" when it's coming down to actual ADs trying to make a move.

    It seems that the last leprechaun at LSU was a guy by the name of Dinardo…
