Our record the last 17 games had him on the hot seat. The off the field "issues" made the heat unbearable. It wasn't a matter of it, it was when. Watching the press conference at least publicly both sides handled it very well.
I question of people calling for his head after one game. There's the buyout & who are you going to replace him with? No coach in his right mind would come to LSU if he's fired after say a 8 - 4 season.
