    He was a little rough around the edges so USC passed since we prefer "nice guys" who talk about championships but average 7-8 wins a year.

    Eh. I'm not sure he can relate at an Orange County alumni event.

    It dawned on me earlier that Coach O likely preaches faith family and football, just in a different voice.

    So tragic and sad the elites making decisions at SC couldn’t get over that.

    He doesn’t fit at USC, little rough around the edges, uses salty language, doesn’t talk coach speak or use big words, but the guy sure can coach and recruit.

    Don’t need big words to coach football players. Whom ever kept him from coaching SC is an asshole! I bet everyone is making that person feel salty

    I just asked Santa for a LSU jersey. I was hoping I could stand next to Marcus Allen & John Robinson on the LSU sideline!

    I don’t think the people who ran Coach O off give a shit. The people running the university want to make this Haaavard West, where they can look down their noses to commoners who have a Southern dialect and those filthy brutes who like football. Let’s face it, we old timers would like USC to be USC, but the people running the show want it to be a pseudo-Ivy. Maybe we can play football in that league.

    I love Coach O. And, I wanted to move on from Clay. That being said, I believe that a lot of the posters on this board that call Clay "Gomer" and the like would have been just as brutal with Eddie O and his Biyou ways. Eddie O is a great fit at LSU and I hope he wins it all. I'm not sure the same would have been the case in SoCal.

    Why yes! He was coaching Ole Miss to a 10-25 record, went 6-2 as interim HC at USC, then was finally hired by a school that was committed to winning.

    I’m hoping Coach O wins it all, but he would not have done as well at USC. He’s right where he belongs.

    You must never been to OC Trojan Club when Coach O came to speak. He was very popular & room was packed. We on board always asked for him as speaker. Man worked the room like Pete. When we went to HH we asked for Coach O to brief us. He got us all ready to run thru a wall for him.

    Doesn't that say a lot about current state of affairs of USC football when USC legends are on the sideline at LSU games.

    Yes, but he didn't fit in with the cocktail crowd of the in crowd at USC. That was a lot more important than being able to actually coach discplined, hard nose football.
