In 2005 I'd have disagreed, but now definitely a top ten job.
Sorry, but Georgia is not a better job than LSU
I also don't understand the whole ''if miles got fired lsu would get better'' argument. Les has done more than Saban did. LSU has done more in the last decade than they did in their program's history. Sure he makes some incredible dumb decisions sometimes, but LSU has been great while he has been there.
explain please. bad comment.
I agree with that. We do not have the overall history like some schools but our history isn't terrible. When it comes to fan support (Good & Bad ), money, recruiting base, and location then we are definitely up there. I think it would depend on the coach and what he is looking for in a job. The most loved and hated man in the state of LA is the coach of LSU (usually at the same time) ...
What do I need to explain?
they both won 1 MNC. Miles' was against a tOSU team that backed into the game. Tell me how he has done better, especially considering Miles did it with Saban's players?
props to you. LSU is definitely top 10, just no way top 5. The money is good, the fans are good, just doesn't have the history. Not one of those schools that kids across the country grew up wanting to play for.
Les: six double digit win seasons, two conference titles, two ncaa title game appearances, one national championship. Obviously Saban: two double digit win seasons, two conference titles, one national championship
Obviously Les has been there longer but the SEC is more top heavy now than it was.
and Les has been owned by Saban in the same conference. Please continue.
Depends on your definition on being a top 10 "desirable" school.
Now, if you want to win MNC's.. Would LSU be in your top 5?
If you're a coach with MNC aspirations with the instate talent of Louisiana and the talent LSU gets from Texas, would that make LSU a top 5 destination?
Now, if you're going off prestige and things of that nature, LSU isn't in the top 5.
I will say that it's probably easier to get to the title game at LSU than Michigan, UGA, Notre' Dame, Oklahoma and a few others.. Except the conference is tougher in the SEC.
So it depends on how you phrase the question and what you're looking for as a coach.
Oh, and Bamalivesfootball.. I was hammered and took a Xanax that my girl found in her purse and I'm just now reading everything I wrote.. Lulz, what the frick happened? I honestly don't remember anything I wrote on this board today.. Haven't taken a Xanax in 2-3 years.
Anyways, interesting debate.

Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Saban owns everyone. Who is LSU going to get better than Saban? No one.
Les's record vs Saban is 3-4 an remember Saban backed into the 2011 BCSNCG after Les beat him at his house. You really not giving Les enough credit here. Last year Saban needed a last minute drive to win.
azvalleybuckeye is 13 years old.. At least that's what he said. I refuse to trash talk him if he's really that young
this post wreaks of homerism.
actually I just answered a dumb question with a dumb answer. yes, of course I am that young.
Yeah there's no friggin' way you're that young, otherwise, you should go to Harvard.
Anyways, how are the Buckeyes looking for this season? I love Braxton Miller man, he's special
Some of the post itt are too thought out.
You take the best coach (Saban) place him at each school and tally up which job he will have the best chance to win the most gms at, make big $$, hire top notch staffs, have great fan support, facilities are great, and recruit easily.
If you do it that way LSU is easily in the top 5-6, if not higher.
USC is pretty far and away #1, because they can control an entire coast in recruiting, with the right head coach/coaching staff.
Yeah ok... Every post you make about LSU is negative and you think your opinions are facts.
LSU is one of the easiest places to win in terms of recruiting talent and no instate competition.. If you can't see that then I don't know what to tell you.
Child prodigy, bro.
Looking okay, our OL is the strength, and can't seem to contain the young stars on the DL, which is promising.
Brax has improved his footwork (worked with whitfield twice this off season) and will be Brax, obviously.
Should be a fun season, who knows. Expecting the best with the play makers we brought in to challenge the existing talent.
I said LSU is a top 10 coaching destination hands down, sorry bro, I call it how I see it. Us young cats don't know the history.
That's cool, just a debate.. Not trying to fight with you.
All I'm saying is it's very easy to win at LSU in todays game with the talent in Louisiana and Texas.. There's no instate rival to battle for recruits either. Any decent coach came come here and win 10 games a year on talent alone.
I don't know if LSU is a top 10 or top 5 destination for coaches but with the points I made above, I find it would be easier to win here than at Michigan, Notre' Dame, Oklahoma and a few other schools.. Not saying that I'm right but there's not many more places where it's easier to win than LSU.. Texas, UF, USCe Ohio State of course are probably better but after that, the rest of the teams are very close in terms of where a coach would want to go.
just because LSU is in no way a top 5 coaching job, doesn't mean it isn't elite. Sheesh testicals, you are very insecure.
Nice.. Love watching Miller play... Our strength is on the OL too, best OL we've had since I can remember.
Going to be a crazy year in football, I have no idea who's going to win their conferences or the MNC game.
In the end the blue bloods win out, just the way it is. LSU has booster support really going for it. It PAYS top 5, just isn't quite there yet in terms of top jobs.
I say its 7th at the lowest though, which says a lot for a program that isn't even a blue blood.
