For a few years GG has been a total idiot for criticizing Miles in any fashion.
Several other media members have joined in (local & national) & they're crushed as idiots by the Miles gestapo.
All the while, more & more traditional Miles loyalists are stating that they can't defend him any more. Say what you want, but overall confidence in the program is declining (at a rate unique to each individual) although the signs have been there for years.
The blind Miles supporters are ferociously digging in their heels. That part is interesting and amusing if nothing else. (They're reminiscent of blind Obama supporters although I can atleast rationalize their actions b/c they're getting free stuff or think they are.)
It's almost like watching a TV drama/comedy. I've gone from being way too passionate about the situation to much more blase (I really have tried to fight this). Although I have my opinions and get frustrated, I have accepted the fact that nothing I do will change much. The pure entertainment factor of LSU football is not what it once was for me & I've been watching games since ~1980.
As someone said yesterday, I believe....it seems like the reaction to the games & discussion of coaching issues has become more prevalent for some than watching the game itself. Perhaps it's b/c many games are simply not that entertaining...IDK.
I do work & associate with CFB fans all over the country. The continuing Les Miles dramedy is continually a source of entertainment for them.
State of affairs here @ Duke & Duke.
