He directly game day coaches us out of games costing us a shot at the NC (see Bama this year). The team almost won despite his game day coaching.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. The team overcame a 14-3 halftime deficit, to lead by 3 with 90 seconds on their own.

This is how I feel too. He is a great recruiter but he is average at best when it comes to actual game day coaching. Sometimes it appears that he is clueless out there (doesn't know what down it is or how many time outs we have, very poor time management, etc). He is pig-headed and stubborn when it comes to making changes. Sometimes we win games because of sheer talent, even when he's done his best to coach us out of the game. The 85-20 overall record is impressive, but let's see what happens if we continue to play 2nd fiddle to Bama for the next couple of years.

Here is the scoop on the Bama game.

They practiced the fake fg all week. It worked. It just so happened that Bama played man (rarely happens on 4th and long). I'm sure les regrets this one.

The onside kick was brilliant and worked. Well, about six inches short. We had the moment, we get that, we win.

I spoke with players and they said when Les went for it all, they got absolutely pumped. Les threw everything we had that game, and the players knew it, and they gave everything they had. (If he would have been conservative everyone would bitch anyone. At least he put us in a position to win). People forget we were a TD underdog at home.
