Grab Dabbo and Drad (back to the future at LSU) in a package deal.

Because a single loss per season at Houston will keep you out of the playoffs. A single loss @ LSU and you get the benefit of the doubt.
A 3 loss season gets you a pink slip at LSU and a statue at Houston.

Houston is a great position right now: great recruiting, easy conference, and winning makes you playoff eligible. It would be different if he was at a school that hampered his ability to recruit or where a perfect season kept you out of the top 10.

oh öööö your two alums is def representative of the entire alumni base
Houston is the GSU of Houston - very large, not that difficult to get into, near downtown, historic commuter college that added dorms in last 10 years, lots of part time/night students.

If GSU went from nationally irrelevant to suddenly Top 10, do you think alumni would care?

Why would Tom Herman leave Houston? Low expectations, high potential, high reward there. It's the exact opposite at LSU
Because LSU is the big time and Houston is a mid major. Yes, if his singular goal is job security, he should stay at Houston. But no matter how much he wins there, it won't be the same as coaching night games in Baton Rouge or playing in the SEC championship game in Atlanta. I don't know if he'll leave for LSU, but I would bet a lot that he will leave for a P5 opportunity at a major program within the next five years.

UGA, USCe, USCw, Miami, UT-ish, LSU-ish were all vacant last season and Herman's name was tied to all of them to some degree and he re-upped at Houston. It seems like he is waiting for a specific job. Not sure anyone but him and his family know what he is waiting for, but I doubt it's Houston.

No one is going to take that job when they let a coach go like that.
Miles, who has coached LSU since 2005, leaves with a 114-34 overall record and a national title won in 2007. Since the start of the 2013, LSU has gone 15-11 against SEC opponents.
If that's what gets you fired...
