LSU message boards are already speculating about Ed Orgeron’s replacement as head coach. Joe Burrow is the craziest of all the suggestions.
If ESPN, FOX or CBS wanted an endless stream of college football content, they could go all-in on a show called “Fans Say the Darndest Things.”
With LSU football in a rough patch and Ed Orgeron’s job very much in danger, fans have already started dreaming out their ideal replacements.
One fan is dreaming a bit more wildly than the rest.

Let’s think this through. An LSU fan wants to convince Joe Burrow to give up his pro career to take over as head coach despite having zero coaching experience.
LSU message boards are full of candidates to replace Ed Orgeron
What’s next? Maybe the Tigers should take a run at Tom Brady. At least he’s got some gravitas.
Or consider an actual, real-life coach who made Burrow what he is? Former LSU passing coordinator Joe Brady is the offensive coordinator with the Panthers. He’d actually be a solid candidate for the job if Tiger fans want to relive those glory days.
He’s not the only one either. Dave Aranda was the defensive coordinator for that title run and is off to a strong start this season as the head coach at Baylor.
There will be many names touted as a possible replacement for Orgeron if he loses his job. It’s safe to say Burrow won’t be one of them. At least not for a long, long time.
