SEC Media Days: Guice primed to meet expectations, comparisons

SEC Media Days: Guice primed to meet expectations, comparisons

"That last game, going into the bowl, Leonard could not play". But he's no longer the same guy who won just three conference games with the Rebels from 2005-07.

LSU's head coach, Ed Orgeron talked about the ongoing starting quarterback storyline, Heisman trophy candidate Derrius Guice, and what it takes to beat the SEC-dominating Alabama Crimson Tide. Tigers coach Ed Orgeron will trust Canada. Orgeron, meanwhile, had almost a decade to think about and try to correct what went wrong at Ole Miss, where inexperience outweighed any recruiting success.

"I'm very grateful for my time at Ole Miss", he said.

"A lot of factors had to happen for me to get the job at LSU", Orgeron admitted. Was given a great chance. I did the things that I did as a D line coach that had been successful. The Tigers are 2-2 in their past four meetings against Arkansas, Auburn and Ole Miss. He also prepped for questions regarding the series against Alabama and the Tigers' new offense. Of those 16, Orgeron, Muschamp, Rich Rodriguez, Mark Richt, Bobby Petrino, Mike Leach and David Cutcliffe were fired from their previous gig, although the ousters of Leach and Petrino had nothing to do with on-field results.

"They've done a great job at Alabama", Orgeron said. How many SEC coaches go 10-25 at Ole Miss then resurface 10 years later replacing the winningest coach in LSU history?

At Ole Miss, Orgeron replaced David Cutcliffe, who was sacked for going 4-7 the season after the loss of Eli Manning. Somewhere between being fired at Ole Miss in 2007 and getting a second chance at LSU a year ago, Orgeron had a revelation about how he should conduct himself. There's a need for me to prove to the perimeter. "Anytime we go into the Swamp it's going to be a battle", Orgeron said. And I was going to treat every coach ... with respect and let him coach his position as he knew it. Ever since those two minor changes, we've been 12-4. In a Citrus Bowl victory over Lousiville, Guice torched the Cardinals for 138 yards and a touchdown. And then we play them, and you don't want to get away from your offense, but you have to do something else (against Alabama), and it's really hard.

Orgeron will be responsible for fixing all of that as quickly as possible.

China and Bhutan started border negotiations in the 1980s, and have held 24 rounds of talks. At present, China and Bhutan are engaged in talks over the resolution of the area.

Ditto for the Razorbacks, who took a small step back with a 7-6 record.

"We can't just point to Alabama, but they are the benchmark on the stand that the head coach at LSU must be", Orgeron said. Coach coaches very well and gets his team ready to play. This is one of many good reasons that when the LSU head coach speaks, you listen.

With top-10 recruiting classes creating an endless parade of NFL-caliber talent, it's not as if Orgeron doesn't have a foundation to win immediately. The decision is just the latest example of seemingly bad blood between the programs, which started with the rescheduling of last year's game.

The matchup is one of five SEC road games for the Tigers, who were scheduled to play in Gainesville last season, Instead, Hurricane Matthew caused the game to be postponed, then moved to Baton Rouge.

Going by Guice's description, Alabama's defense was determined to contain Leonard Fournette and daring LSU to throw the deep ball. To beat Alabama, you have to recruit at their level.

"I was born in Louisiana, and (the expectations) are very high", he said. I don't feel the pressure from that. "The way I view it is we didn't accomplish everything we set ourselves out to".

To understand the chip of Guice's shoulder one has to venture back to his days as a high school prospect.
