As the college football season enters its sixth week, it is becoming more and more clear who has what it takes . . . and who does not.
The truth is, when it comes to college football, it is all about what have you done for me lately.
And this top college football coach found himself on the hot seat early this season.
Louisiana State’s head coach Ed Orgeron (who won a National Championship just a couple years ago) is already on the hot seat after a disappointing start to the season.
As it stands, LSU is 3-2, which is unacceptable if you are a Tigers fan. Their losses include an opening game loss against UCLA (which cost them their #16 ranking) as well as last weeks loss against SEC rival #22 ranked Auburn.
3-2 may be good for some schools, but that is flat-out embarrassing for LSU, and their fans are letting them know it.
Following last week’s loss against Auburn, a shower of boos could be heard from the departing fans in Baton Rouge.
And this frustration is a couple years in the making.
Following their championship season, the organization went on a glidepath to disappointment and mediocrity after going unranked and 5-5 on the year.
This year looks like more of the same.
For many LSU fans, this appears to be due to many issues . . . but all roads lead to their head coach, and many fans want him gone.
His off the field scandals don’t help his case either.
Getting rid of Orgeron would require a contract buyout of roughly $17 million, but if you are a Tigers fan, that’s money well spent.
The next question is, who would replace him?
Rumors have it that possible replacements include Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin, Penn State’s James Franklin, or even Texas A&M’s own Jimbo Fisher.
It will be interesting to see what happens to coach Orgeron at LSU.
But one thing is certain, if things don’t change in Baton Rouge, they won’t be hoisting another championship trophy anytime soon.
