    Would guess the justification for the nearly full buyout is tied to Orgeron keeping his mouth shut vis a vis all that

    Because people who spend time around him always end up hating him. I bet the leaks are more personal than strategic.

    definitely possible but wouldn’t these people have leaked these things after the title IX report came out? I feel like they could have done him in like they did gruden by dripping bad things until it became untenable.

    They're going to turn him into one of those "Come to the local Wal-Mart to take your picture with the National Championship" displays they have in Alabama.

    so LSU is going to be paying out 20 mil to O, and two other coaches.
    I've seen here where they are broke. Are they? Podcasts routinely say money is not a problem and they are flush with cash.

    Names being floated on podcasts are Urb, Lincoln and not Dabo

    I don't know if the University is actually broke, but funding was an issue as of a couple of years ago.

    However, the football coach isn't paid by the University, he's paid by the athletic department (which is self funded) and the Tiger Athletic Foundation, so once you get past the bad optics (which are non-existent in Louisiana with regards to LSU football) it's not a barrier

    the school had funding issues a few years ago. LSU football has access to whatever funds are needed. They had a booster embezzle money from a hospital to pay a recruits family. They’re fully committed.

    I've never gotten the impression that Ed O has a lot of dirt on LSU from the people I trust. However, I fully expect more Ed O stories to come out of the grapevine throughout the rest of this year.

    He spent the entire 2020 offseason living at L'Auberge casino in Baton Rouge and at a certain point Woody told him to chill out with that. What does he do following that you may ask? He starts dating the ex of a Baton Rouge media member and as it was told to me "He apparently needed something to fuck on the regular".

    Meanwhile, Bruce Feldman’s dumb ass was writing a book about how much he’d matured. :roll:

    Then why the full payout and 4 year retainer? Makes no sense except for protection

    I'm not saying it's not a weird situation. But I'm legitimately trying to think of who O would have dirt on at LSU at this point and time. Especially when his off the field personality has been well known for the last 16+ mos.

    One of the coaches at my high school had two women he was messing around with both show up at the same practice and a fight broke out between the two.

    Anyway I feel like we've all met a football coach like Orgeron in life if not multiple ones like him

    Yea that is the portrait he had commissioned as outgoing governor. Its probably hanging up wherever Louisiana hangs up the portraits of former governors.

    He doesn't have to HAVE the dirt. There is sure to be dirt if he digs deep enough, and the fastest, cleanest way to keep Orgeron ('s attorneys) from digging is to pay him to go away.

    Career suicide for taking down UT? He’s going to get bumped to 8 mil/yr at Bama.

    Any major college coach would have dirt if they wanted to use it. Judging by what we have already seen out of the title IX investigation, LSU AD, boosters embezzling funds to pay recruits, orgerons own actions in recruiting over the years amongst other things I think it’s pretty clear that he has dirt. I’m not so sure he would use it and potentially ruin his legacy but the fear of that generally makes schools cough up the cash and pay the buyout.
