3. Who else is LSU going to hire?

This might be the biggest reason.

Who is LSU supposed to hire if they fire Orgeron?

Anyone short of Urban Meyer or maybe Bob Stoops would seemingly be a downgrade.

I think folks forget what Orgeron has accomplished at LSU.

Coach O is 47-15 through six-plus seasons in Baton Rouge.

That’s not a Nick Saban-like record, but it’s not bad, either.

Oh yeah, and there’s that national championship that Orgeron won a couple of years ago, too.

Not many coaches can claim a  college fotoabll national championship. Orgeron, however, is one of the few that has a ring to show off.

If LSU goes out and fires Orgeron and hires a replacement, that replacement isn’t going to be 60 years old with a nine and ten win season on his resume, as well as a 15-0 season that resulted in a national championship.

Alabama and Nick Saban have spoiled college football fans. — a national championship isn’t as common as Bama makes it out to be.

Everything has to go just right, which is what happened for LSU in 2019.

Averaging at least nine or ten wins a season should be the goal for LSU on a yearly basis.

Winning the national championship should be a goal as well, but it’s not reasonable to expect the Tigers to be in the College Football Playoff every season.

Orgeron has already proved he can take a talented team and help it reach the pinnacle of college football.

Next. Bengals fans shouldn't worry about Joe Burrow. dark

Not many coaches can say that.

LSU might as well roll with one who has made it happen before.
