Ed Orgeron Out at Mississippi; Bo Pelini Already Contact by Nebraska

11/24/07 in NCAAF   |   CriticalFanatic   |   respect


While the season continues for many today, those teams who are done for the year are moving quickly to right the future.

Ole Miss fired Coach O, Ed Orgeron, who has failed to transfer he knack for recruiting and defense from USC to Mississippi. Coach 0 is certainly unique, who might possess his very own language. He'll quickly get an opportunity to return to defensive coordinating or d-line. As for his replacement, it's anyone's guess.

Meanwhile, Nebraska is already moving quickly. The Lincoln Journal Star is reporting a search firm has contact Bo Pelini, former interim coach and LSU defensive coordinator about his interest. Often passed over for head coaching positions, I'd bet Pelini will take the first offer he gets whether it's LSU or Nebraska or even Texas A&M.

Fulmer isn't respected anywhere, except Tennessee.  But that has more to do with rivalries than anything.

 

If Miles leaves, I'm sure the boosters at LSU would start talking about Fulmer enough and building the situation up to get LSU excited at the possibility of him coming to Baton Rouge.

 

Then again, this is all just a bunch of rumor talk.  It happens every year.  stranger things have happened in SEC coaching rumors, though.

 

There are already plenty of folks saying that Tubberville would be interested in the Arkansas job, too.  And, of course, Ole Miss is rumored to be going after Tubby for another stint in Oxford.

 

Talk to me tonight after the Iron Bowl and I will tell you how I feel about those rumors.

Well... Les Miles kind of has that problem too.  If I were LSU I'd almost want the Les Miles situation to work out as quickly as possible because I'd like to keep Pellini if I could. 

 

This is going to be one fun coaching carousel to watch.

This is going to be as fun as watching all the baseball free agent signings.  Who's going where?  Who will surprise us with an unexpected move?  Will Saban be offered any of these jobs?

 

I can start the rumor mill for us.  On a local radio sports talk show, one of the guys on there talks with some folks at LSU pretty often.  He was told that if Miles leaves LSU, the word is going around that LSU will try to get Phillip Fulmer from Tennessee.  With the struggles that he has had the past few seasons, and all the heat that has been on him at Tennessee, it isn't a far fetched rumor.
