Has LSU ever lost a game that wasn't Miles' fault?


I'm trying to think of a game where the players just didn't execute, we had too many turnovers, penalties, and the TEAM lost.

Or have our last 4 losses in three seasons all been on Miles?

If so, if all 4 losses were on Miles, how many of those 30 wins can we credit him with?

How many times has he put this team in a position to win and they came through?

Compare that, just for kicks, to how many games Saban lost in that same time period, and which were due to coaching

A bunch of times. All of the losses in 2008 come to mind, Bama 2009, Auburn 2010, etc

Eta: after reading this post a second time, I'm pretty sure this is a troll.

All losses are the coach's fault. All wins happened despite his attempts to lose the game. All the mistakes, poor execution and turnovers are simply a symptom of his awful coaching abilities. If we had any other coach over the last 7 seven years, including any rantard here, we would have won every game and would be looking for our 8th championship in a row. He should be fired immediately, and banned from the state for the rest of his life.

Miles is personally responsible for every loss due to his too many to list coaching flaws.

Every victory came as a result of his staff overcoming these flaws and the players ignoring his coaching and winning on their own.

Yep.
1-9-12 and yesterday were the last two. I am sure the players were taught how to read run keys, pick up a Cat blitz, and catch the football in Pop Warner. You can't blame Miles for poor execution.

Losing is always on the Head Coach.

Yeah because SEC football isn't any more complicated or fast paced than Pop Warner football.

Yup. Ultimately that's accurate. Of course there are sometimes nuances in games and circumstances that play into it but when it's all said and done, a coach lives and dies on his won-loss record.

Well, apparently he recruited a bunch of players who can't play and are un-coachable and that's why the offense is so routinely terrible. So I'd say that's his fault.

Seriously though, if your offense can't put up more than 6 points in a game, and 3 of those came from a 1st and goal turnover gifted to you, then there are deeper flaws than "players not executing" like "coaches not doing their jobs".

No.

Even in the 1959 14-13 loss to Tennessee at Knoxville, it has been found that a then-six year-old Les Miles was in the stands- using a mirror to blind the officials in what was a critical goal-line play that resulted in a touchdown no-call.....

Guess what dumbass? Mett was sacked on a Cat blitz, Gillislee (sp) scored and got numerous first downs on the same power Trey, and we had a ton of dropped passes. What is complicated about that?
