Ed Orgeron had gone on a limb with hiring Bo Pelini as defensive coordinator this year for LSU.
A couple of hours prior, Ohio State, for a 38-24 triumph in the Bowl Championship Series national title game in the Louisiana Superdome. Pelini will be replacing Dave Aranda who become Baylor’s head coach.
Pelini had nine wins within seven years at Nebraska.
Granted Pelini didn’t win the Big12 or Big10 games while he coached at Nebraska, but LSU likes his philosophy for defense. Looks like Pelini streak might change this year, at Louisiana State University.
