quote: Can be summed up in three words: He's. Not. Nick.
This has ALWAYS been the problem for some, and since day one have looked for reason to vilify the guy. That's not to say he's been perfect...no coach ever has been. But then that's the point, isn't it? Miles is seemingly held to standard literally no other coach is, or has been. We've got people bitching on this site because they are unable to see that other than BAMA there is literally no other program in the nation we ought to envy... It's not debatable that Les has been more successful then Nick was as LSU's coach. The numbers don't lie. Les' problem was that where Nick was able to tell the fans to essentially go frick themselves because he was working on the process (and for the first time in the history of our state EVERYONE seemed to get on board) Les seems more affable and more of a target for criticism. Truth is for some here, no amount of winning or championships or anything would make Miles equal to their long lost unrequited love now residing in Tuscaloosa.
This deserves to be cataloged in the TD "best of" page. Every time people bitch about Les, this should be posted.

Amen. Couldn't have said it better myself. I have a close family member who still pines for Saban and will not listen to reason even when faced with the breakdown of the Saban years. I give Saban the credit he deserves for pulling our program out of the toilet and giving us a NC, but he left us high and dry to pursue higher glory in the NFL. Miles is not perfect by far, but his record here at LSU is outstanding. People always try to say he's an idiot because of some of the things he has said or done, but at the end of the day, he is a winner. And he just enjoys himself--Saban can barely smile while holding the crystal football. I've seen people on death row smile more than him.
