how much of the LSU fan base truly likes Les Miles & want him as the coach of LSU?
LSU fan base? Easily 80%, and there's a good chance it's over 90%.
Internet message board posters? Maybe 50%, maybe not. You gotta remember the rule of thumb in internet message board communications: the stupider the opinion, the more often it gets posted.
Basically, it boils down to this: the LSU people who don't like Miles are simply the type of people who want to bitch and complain; and those types of people also happen to be more likely to be the type of people who will post their bitching 1,000 times a day if necessary to "convince" the internet that they are right.
Volume doesn't equal representation. The vast majority of LSU fans make up less than 1% of the posts on the Rant.
