John Robinson wants to find the word.
“This young generation… millennium… millennials! Yes! ”Robinson, former USC coach and Rams 84 years of age. "They see different things."
Thousands of years on Louisiana State computer football teams everywhere they go, it seems to Robinson. Soon, they showed him how to turn his machine on him and, later, how to achieve his analytical powers.
It was a fantastic four months for Robinson to consult LSU Tigers Ed Orgeron, who will take their Classification 12-0 and ranking No. 2 in the southeast conference championship game Saturday against No. 4 Georgia Bulldogs in Atlanta. With The LSU has given practical assurance at present in Football Football College based on a regular dominant season, Robinson now feels that it is steeper with the desired new speed.
“I was here about an hour and a half, and I said, I'm about 10 to 12 years behind the times here,” said Robinson. “I thought I would be right with it… bull. The computer changed everything for all these guys. You want to see this game? Boom. You know? Luckily, I have an office mate that helps me. ”
Outside a year in 2010 as a defense coordinator at San Marcos High, Robinson had not trained since he announced his retirement from Nevada Las Vegas in 2004. In the early part of this decade, Pat Haden, director of athletics, added. former USC Robinson to work as a fundraiser for the USU, where he was respected for the Trojans who led to four Rose Bowl winner and a share of the 1978 national championship.
Robinson met Orgeron through his fundraising during the second round of Orgeron as the USC defense line coach. The two came closer during Orgeron as lead coach in 2013 after suddenly lighting Kiffin's Lane.
Orgeron failed his first training opportunity in Mississippi and I would like to get tips from Robinson about running a top program. As Orgeron put the records of 6-2 on the Trojans and succeeded as a candidate for the permanent position, he valued Robinson's ear.
“If I got the job at USC,” says Orgeron, “I would like to employ him as a consultant.”
The USU hired Steve Sarkisian instead of Orgeron, and Clay Helton Sarkisian continued. Robinson said that he had never contacted a USC coach regarding consultation as he did not feel right because he was in the previous job. Recently, Helton hired the Dallas Cowboys coach, Dave Campo, and Tom Moore, a NFL assault coordinator for a long time as consultants.
Robinson gave NFL games on the radio as well as his USC fundraising, but none of them scraped the foot enough.
Robinson's wife, Beverly, grew up in South Louisiana, where LSEN fans were LSU as most of her. In the last few years, the couple were visiting Beverly's mother in New Orleans, and they made a few trips to Baton Rouge to reconnect with Orgeron.
No plan was put in place, but when the former USC Athletics director Lynn Swann told Robinson last summer that his services were no longer needed, he added to the feeling that there was a big change in the coming world.
Robinson asks Swann's friend and he has no ill health towards the school, he said he was looking for ways to save money.
It has been very difficult for Robinson to watch USC football over the years.
“You think it's part of the aging, you're no longer relevant,” says Robinson. “You are no longer a star and start to change things. The uniform has changed. I remember being married very much, because, What are they doing? They have to bring the clothes back. There are too many things going on. You do not mess with tradition.
“You know, when I got the job from John McKay, I didn't change anything. Now, I changed some things, but I didn't talk about them. I talked about the tradition and about this I was spending a better game. ”
So it was a fresh start time. When Robinson told Orgeron that he was moving to Louisiana, Orgeron quickly jumped the chance that he never got the USC to help Robinson to continue his education.
On the first day of the August 1 LSU drop camp, Robinson was equipped with a purple and gold gear that covered the butterflies he was feeling.
“I just looked around,” said Robinson. "I was delighted. Seriously. I felt like a rookie again. Just because I love to do, you know, and I was good at, and just as part of the team, I had a ball. ”
As a consultant, the NCAA rules prevent Robinson from training players directly. Still, those first days and weeks, “I was exhausted,” he says.
Robinson arrives at the LSU Football Operations Center around 7:15 a.m. and leaves about 10 p.m. It is an aggressive coach by trade, it helps the Referees' contribution to being better acquainted, as Orgeron has enough staff dedicated to scouting the opponent.
Orgeron says every Monday that Robinson will give him 10 views.
“I use it every day, I promise you that!” Orgeron says.
Robinson has been part of the biggest offensive transformation in the college park. The Tigers, who is known for stubborn style, smash-mouth about Les Miles in the past year, has a relentless modern scattering attack. LSU joins Georgia with the second full grade and the run nationally, while Joe Burrow, senior senior fourth, has the Heisman Trophy, but is accepted.
A generation for generations in the Tigers aggressive team, from Joe Brady, game coordinator passed 30 years of age – Orgeron hired from this New Orleans show – down to Robinson.
“It's a great experience,” says Robinson. “If you were just researching football and trying to compare my generation with this generation and what is happening, I think I've read a great show.” T
All of the post-season training awards could be carried out by Orgeron and Brady, but Robinson has often received the highest accolade as the Tiger traveled around Southern.
Before LSU's “Game of the Century” went against Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Orgeron was talking to the game officials when they applied:
They wanted to meet John Robinson.
