Mainieri in for amazing honeymoon

Reading about Paul Mainieri's introductory news conference, I suspect he's about to become one of the most beloved coaches LSU has had in a long time. His past with LSU and that part of the state is a big bonus, but it's his wife's talk about favorite places to eat, favorite spots in New Orleans, along with her time as a Tigers cheerleader, that will really make LSU fans feel comfortable with the family. The fact that the couple took a mini-vacation in New Orleans just to give back to the city, before the job was open, is a huge bonus.

If the guy can produce a winner and take the Tigers back to the College World Series, he can coach there forever. If he can win a national title or two, he may be a strong candidate for governor and will never have to buy his own lunch again.
