Orgeron more confidence about second coaching stint in SEC

Zaire transferred from Notre Dame. No Bengal Tiger fan, player or coach should be surprised.

The administration decided it was moving forward with its football program to a future that would not include Orgeron as its head coach.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones balks at labeling it a disappointing season, though it's mostly semantics.

Along the way, Orgeron built a reputation. And there were plenty of great comments, including one about high school football.

Orgeron was also asked about how he has changed as a head coach since his previous days at both USC and Ole Miss. The Crimson Tide have won four national titles since 2009, including one vs. LSU in the 2012 BCS national championship game. We were given an open invitation to visit his office in Oxford, where a fridge would await and we'd kick out feet back and shoot the breeze. "I've always wanted to be a head coach".

And it blew up. He expects this to be his previous year at LSU, something he readily has admitted in the past and did again Monday during an interview with The Advocate.

"Everything that we do is going to be based around our best player, Derrius Guice", the coach later said to hundreds of reporters in the main room. I did the things that I did as a D line coach that had been successful.

As any self-respecting Rebel knows those are the first three words of "Hotty Toddy", Ole Miss' traditional cheer.

So, Derrius runs. He plans on running right into the National Football League, too. He examined what he did wrong and right.

After his firing Orgeron called former coaching mentors Jimmy Johnson and Pete Carroll.

"Haha I like that. but when you actually play and get some stats come back and try again", Guice wrote. "And then I was going to treat every coach on the coaching staff with respect and let him coach his position". "Ever since those two minor changes, we've been 12-4, so that's the difference".

The last time we saw the Arkansas Razorbacks, they were blowing a 24-0 halftime lead in a loss to Virginia Tech in the Belk Bowl.

So he found himself in that purple and gold, as LSU's defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator.

Orgeron has lost much of the talent that helped him win five of seven regular season games previous year and get the permanent job. Perhaps in a parallel universe, something good can be said about Joe Alleva as an Athletic Director. "Those numbers mean so much in LSU history that we want to keep the positive impact that comes with it". He's succeeded as an interim guy for a pair of teams starving for fresh leadership. During SEC Media Day, the new full-time #LSU Tigers coach had an opportunity to show off that side of his personality. I don't feel the pressure, but I do acknowledge that it's out there. And I still need to prove that now I'm the head coach, and we need to win. I feel like Derrius could do that as well, but I think Derrius could catch some more balls than Leonard can. "I don't know when he'll be back, what time he'll be back".

It's time to work some magic.
