Ed Orgeron's legacy will determined by success against Alabama...and he owns it

At his introductory press conference, LSU's new head coach Ed Orgeron was announced and wasted no time setting a high bar for LSU under his leadership and that includes how LSU will compete with Alabama.

It wasn't a few minutes into the official start of the Ed Orgeron at LSU that Alabama was brought up. By the end of the press conference, it was clear. Everything LSU will do under Orgeron will be about winning championships and beating Alabama.

LSU lost to Alabama 10-0 under Orgeron's direction this year. Orgeron said the team isn't far off.

"You are judged by that game. That's the nature of the beast. I bring it on. I can't wait till the day we beat those guys. That's the benchmark," Orgeron said at his introductory press conference on Saturday. "We have to recruit better, we have to get players that are very similar to the benchmark of this conference. We have to get coaches that can coach at that level. We have to have the mindset that we can go out and beat those guys."

Les Miles couldn't measure up to that benchmark, losing five straight to Alabama starting with the 2011 National Championship game. Orgeron expects that to change.

Just how close is LSU to competing for championships and beating Alabama?

"I believe that we can compete for it very fast. Now that I've been given full reign, I have a vision. Certain pieces of puzzle have to come together and I do believe they will come together. Once they do come together, off we go," Orgeron said. "Just getting the best staff in America. Getting to implement our program, the offseason, our offense."

Orgeron points to the way LSU played Alabama this fall as a reason for that optimism.

"For the most part of the last time we played them, we had that," Orgeron said. "There were a couple pieces missing We plan to fix those pieces so we can get that job accomplished. That is the benchmark everyday we go to work and we understand the benchmark."

The man that drove fast to LSU on Saturday morning with the windows down, music blasting and "hollering," has a friend in Tuscaloosa in Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin. Orgeron is expected to target Kiffin as offensive coordinator. Questions were immediately asked about Kiffin. http://www.scout.com/college/lsu/story/1732080-ed-orgeron-to-be-named-ls...

"Someone running the offense that's an expert at that. That's a big key," Orgeron said. "We're going to look at recruiting the best offensive coordinator in football and bring him to LSU."

Recruiting is the final place of that puzzle. Orgeron said the team has to recruit better at some positions and fill some immediate needs. The staff has already identified those and with it'll be heavily based on recruiting Louisiana.

"LSU has done a tremendous job recruiting. We've done a good job, but we're going to do better at certain positions," Orgeron said. "State of Louisiana first. One-star, three-star, five-star, any star. We're going to get em if we think they can be an LSU Tiger. We're going to go outside our borders to get NFL first round picks if they're interested."

The Louisiana native uniting with Kiffin, stepping up in recruiting top tier talent and retaining defensive coordinator Dave Aranda could be the perfect recipe to beat Alabama.

Orgeron has set the benchmark for success at LSU under his direction. He said so himself. 

Just how fast will it happen?
