Absolutely. In his NSD press conference he took jabs at RN throughout, it's not as obvious as his gunner diss, but it's there. Last year if it wasn't for gunner, he probably would've destroyed LC

Going negative on another school (assuming it is true information) seems more mature and less negative than going negative on a kid (even if the kid jerked you around).

You really think the negative recruiting uses true information? Lulz

you are taking this out of context. ok, dissing a kid after nsd is not that cool but the "game is over". negative recruiting is mostly bull shite. yea, florida is a higher ranked school than Lsu but that's graduate school stuff and the vast majority of these guys will be obtaining (or working toward) undergraduate degrees in pretty unchallenging disciplines and florida's point is utter bull shite. then to further the negativety by hinting "other" shite like the coach will leave, etc, etc is not that effective. i like our approach. instead of saying "the food in florida sucks", which is 100% true you should say..."the food in louisiana is the best in the country", which is also true and a positive. by the way, both can be proved.

Depends on how it's done; and I respectfully disagree with what you're alluding to. Miles' comment on Kiel last year was hardly as slanderous as some made it out to be. Context means everything. There's a world of difference between: a) making a kid the focus, saying he has no chest and trying to shine the spotlight on him negatively, and b)saying something to the effect that maybe this kid didn't have the chest to come here, but we still have a great group of guys who have outstanding qualities and they're going to do great things. The latter, which I think was Miles' tack, is a way to say it's time to take the spotlight off of Kiel and move on. It turned out to be not the most politically astute way to say it... and allowed the media to frame more emphasis on him slandering Kiel than he intended, but whatever.

Les likes to smack talk a little; he's not quite as witty as Spurrier, but I'm fine with it. People who get worked up about it are either too sensitive or have an agenda to cut him down.

Negative recruiting, in comparison, by saying another school sucks in some way or another, or trying to plant seeds that coaches won't be there when nobody knows anything, is a different beast. And it is petty and insecure in comparison to a school that recruits by simply highlighting what it has to offer. I'm not trying to be holier than thou, and personally can't say I wouldn't resort to negative recruiting myself if I were a coach, but I do think it's nice Miles and his staff can succeed by doing it more honorably.

I have read this many times over the years--LSU does not do negative recruiting, instead concentrating on the family aspect & selling the positives of LSU.

I would also add that the Tigers secured some solid offensive recruits this year, despite the concerns about play-calling, the offensive coordinator, etc. So with Cameron on board, hopefully LSU's offensive recruiting will be even stronger.
