    Riley to LSU starting to took legit

    TFB forum saying there have been multiple OU sources saying he is leaving and he has a lot if new LSU staff following him on Twitter it seems too...

    https://www.on3.com/news/lincoln-ril...rs-lsu-tigers/

    If so, shows how big a rip off the insider OU pay sites are! You would think they would have known this a while ago and would have reported it. No need to hide this info if they had it.


    Not too upset to see him go. Curious to see who Joe C. Replaces him with.

    Not leaving.

      If he goes, my only concern is the effect it will have on our 2022 and 2023 recruiting classes. That could be a killer.

        If he does leave, Joe Castiglione would have know for awhile that this may happen. I wonder who we have lined up?

        Billy Nappier
        Luke Fickell

          I can see the allure of taking the job. More money, better recruiting grounds, rabbid fans, etc.. I’m just not sure I would take it.

                He will say this and that. But in the end it was the money. $12 million vs $7.5 million. You can't blame him.

                  Jamey Chadwell. Look what he’s done at Coastal Carolina.

                    If Riley is leaving, I would expect that we might get blown out by OSU. This would be the type of distraction for the coach and team, as well as all assistants, who would know. If we get blown out tomorrow, I will be looking for an announcement.

                      Good? I’m tired of this. Get it over with or squash the rumors Lincoln or don’t and be a bitch.

                        So Mel Tucker just signed a $95 million 10 year deal, we can't give Riley 12 million/year? The market has changed.

                          I think Castiglione sees that Lincoln can only get OU so far. He probably encourage Lincoln to take the LSU job and get his payday. Now it’s time to bring in a defensive minded coach and hire a good offensive coordinator.

                            Beamer would only get looked at if Joe C wanted to keep the rest of the staff on board.

                              No wonder our offense looked like shit our last two games.

                                I agree. If LSU did offer 12 million a year, I could see Joe C. taking the approach of letting LR go because I think Joe may have seen what a lot of fans think, that we have seen LR's ceiling. So, Joe C. would not fire LR at this point and might even give him a small raise, but based on how this season has played out, I don't know that Joe C. would fight to keep LR by paying that much.

                                LR has lost some shine as far as being viewed as the type of coach who can win a natty and compete for it nearly every season. He is a fine coach, just not top shelf in my view. He is the type that you would like to have, but you aren't going to pull your hair out if he leaves.

                                    If he gave LR a raise and next year looks like this year.....the boo birds would be out in force during those shit games.

                                        Very true . Last 2 years he was exposed on his ability to develop QBs ( rattler regressing, and now Caleb ) and his offensive scheme has been defeated by Baylor , Iowa st , Kansas , and others .

                                          Have no idea if any of this is true but If Lincoln wants LSU type of money, then win the gawddamn natty when it was set up perfectly for you to do so. At least win a game in the playoff and then play a competitive game for once when it all counts.

                                            Is what it is. Coaches come and go, Oklahoma is forever. Trust in Joe if we need to make a hire.

                                                Yeah, his schtick would not play well in Baton Rouge. You can't afford to lay eggs against weak opponents and you better beat Saban every couple of years as well.

                                                  Is he taking Caleb Williams with him? If Caleb Williams leaves, I wonder what Rattler is going to do?

                                                    If he goes, some of our stud recruits are likely to follow him. We'd have to hit a homerun hire. Like Urban Meyer (unlikely, plus he's a dirtbag) or Luke Fickell. It's not so much the leaving that would concern me, but minimizing the short term hit with an effective hire.

                                                      At least we have an instant rivalry now when we go the SEC. Owen field would be rocking when Riley and LSU come into town.

                                                        He'll be looking for a place with a decent OL

                                                          If he were to leave, which he isn't, we'd definitely lose recruits and it would be damaging, no matter who was hired. Too late in the game. Fickel isn't swaying any of the elites this year wherever he goes.

If this is true we should bring in someone willing to keep Alex and hope Alex wants to stay on board at Oklahoma

Like Urban Meyer (unlikely, plus he's a dirtbag) or Luke Fickell. It's not so much the leaving that would concern me, but minimizing the short term hit with an effective hire.
                                                                                            While I am not an Urban Meyer fan….this would blow the mind of UT fans. Some head would literally rupture in Austin….so many tears, so much despair. They wanted Urban so badly. So I see some value in it.

                                                                                                Yeah, it is interesting that LSU would so highly value him. I mean, the money they are allegedly offering would be the type that you would offer to a guy who has proven himself as a natty winning coach. A guy who has won 3 nattys or so and a fan base believes that he will do so for them.

                                                                                                In this case, LR has not and we really don't know whether he will. That is a lot of money to pay for a guy with this lingering question hanging over his resume and a fan base that expects to beat Bama and win nattys.

Another school wants to give our current coach a new contract. Mel Tucker is getting pain 9.5 million/year. LSU wants to pay Lincoln Riley 12 million/year. Is Lincoln Riley better than Mel Tucker? I think he is.
