    Very small mention, but still recognition none the less...This was from a Rivals interview with Switzer:

    Q: Who's the best recruiter today?
    Switzer: "I don't know. But if I'd been coaching at Texas I might still be coaching. Give me that state to recruit to. … When Mack (Brown, Texas coach) coached for me in 1984 we talked a lot and he asked me one day, 'What's the best (head coach) job in the country?' I told him Texas. It has wealth, alumni, tradition and at the same time it's there in Texas. LSU is a great school, too. Back when they were doing nothing I thought LSU could be a giant. Oklahoma had about 200 high schools and would only have eight or nine athletes a year."

    I'm not sure if I would want that. How old is Switzer now? I would have loved him 20, 25 years ago...But not so sure now...I like a younger guy like Les calling the shots anyway...

    switzer or spurrier at lsu would mean BCS contention every year. spurrier also would have been frightening for the rest of cfb had we landed him. i doubt any one is shaking knowing miles is coming to town.

    I think Barry would be OK with the student/athletes using his favorite weapon, the AK-47...

    ..or perhaps a MAC-10...

    Just like he did at OU... :thumb:

    Give the f***ing guy a chance! Besides, coaches don't make anyone shake. Players do.

    Oh, and Switz would have had us on probation within 5 years.

    get your head out of the sand robidoux. if you dont think there is a difference in lsu with coach spurrier or lsu with coach switzer coming to town vs. lsu and coach miles the big sausage slinger has some ocean front property...to sell you.
