It seems to me that he has been successful on a smaller school that now can play with big schools with his system and he develops sub-par talent in to bonafide players. Imagine what he can do with LSU's recruiting base and the talent that is already there. He is a helluva coach that knows offense, clock management, and yall should be able to get him for around 3-5 mill a year. Ya'll have the facilities, the talent, and all you need now is a coach who can put it all together. I am a Bama fan, but I hate hearing and watching a fanbase that is as unhappy as LSU's, and I think Les Miles isnt gonna change into a "great" head coach, but will find away to go 8-4 or 9-3 when he should be competing for the SEC every year.It just seems to me that Houston Nutt, Les Miles and Frank Beamer are all cut from the same cloth, which is "I've been doing this so long I can now make this shit up as I go along, who in the hell needs offense?"
Coach Petersen is a smart coach and I bet would unite the fanbase. I spend about 3 days a week in Baton Rouge so I hear the talk radio and I gotta say, its brutal. I am also tired of hearing about Boise St and I think Coach Petersen defecting to a traditional SEC power would end alot of the hoopla.
