Some good info, thanks, some other things to consider, welcome any better info
Some say everyone knew Miley was going pro but Mac refused to believe until it was too late to get QB
As others have said, Macs issue was not beating ole miss, he beat them often and bad in 70's including 24-0 and 45-0 in 74 and 76 when LSU was very average.
Mac IMHO and from all I have heard(for what that's worth lol) was a good man and very good coach, not great. He won 70% of his games but could not beat Bama and no major bowls after 1973. I think the best summary is he was a good man who loved LSU and who did a lot of good things, and maybe just stayed a bit too long. Also he was very loyal, maybe to a fault to his assistants. Winning only one SeC is a major negative but this was also during time that as others have said, Bama was at their best and we were not.
