Thanks for a logical, rational thread.

...and to the people that say play calling was an issue, remember that if you're a young player in a backup role, a good bit of what contributes to that is likely playbook knowledge and game-speed decision making. So, logically, with more backups in the game we can effectively execute less of the playbook.

I think it's commendable the job the coaching staff has done in light of all the controversy in putting together a 10-win season and getting these young players to earn their stripes. I'm definitely optimistic for next year. I think our teams "look" will be different on field, but as different as we looked this year from last and still put together a solid season I'm not worried.

It's so funny the Miles haters...the biggest feather in his cap is the thing they're the most blind to. Look at the diversity of his teams since he's taken the job - and his worst season was 8 wins? Hah! Great time to be a Tiger!

That is an excellent point, and an excellent post altogether.

Solid post. The loss of TM7 was indeed devastating to the team, I believe.


He was a spark-plug.

We will hear the same shite next year. One play from this one play from that. Loss of players to draft.
Recruiting class coming in is stellar. Players were flat due to some circumstance.
Then 2014.

I can't believe it took this long for your dumb arse to enter this thread.

The simple fact that only 3 other teams have played in the national championship game as many times as we have in Miles tenure makes your whole argument complete bull shite.

Some of the absolute worst play calling I've ever seen sure didn't help matters either.


I know, every time they run for no gain how come they didn't pass instead? And when they throw those incompletions how come they didn't run?

I hear you, LouisianaLonghorn, I have to answer my wife these questions all the time. Didn't know people like her posted on here.

Nuts, you are a sourpuss. You depend on LSU football to make you special. You accomplish very little in life on your own. Miles is the Rooseveltian "Man in the arena", and you are the "cold and timid critic" (full poem below)

quote:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

If you think 10 wins IN THE HARDEST DIVISION IN THE HARDEST CONF is a failure, you don't deserve a great program. Get a grip on reality , boy.

Hate is a strong word, Miles deserves all the criticism he gets. When he coaches good we let him know, when he doesn't, we let him know.


No we don't. Hell he just had LSU's GREATEST SEC SEASON , EVER, and poster were calling for his firing before the BCSCG was over. This board is full of football ignorant poster's that think 10 wins in the SEC west is a birth right.

Saban is not perfect. He makes mistakes also. They are usually not the magnitude of screw ups as CLM.


Wrong. They are , they just get overlooked. Like when Miles out coaches Saban 2 out of the last three years. Or in 2010 when Saban had the entire 2011 Bama def , a senior qb ( who had already won a title), Heisman winning rb, 1st rd wr(Julio) and a 1st rd de( Darius) AND HE LOST THREE GAMES.

We did not execute many plays throughout the season - who always does?

However, our play calling was sad, week, predictable like always in many instances. Offensive stats/rankings seem to prove this point the past 5 years. We struggled against Auburn, a couple of smaller schools that had no business playing close to us, and basically played down to our comp. Please Miles, get a OC and let them do their job.

People who mention all what we lost before last year, TM7, then what we lost this year, etc... boo hoo, who cares. If we were still in position then that does reflect the extreme high level of talent Miles brings in (and I'll give him that). However, don't kid yourself, he is fricking up the teams best chance to win with either his shite or Stud's offense!!! proof is in the results

So of course you will reply with, "well we still would have lost the one game that matters". Well guess what, bama lost the one game that mattered the year before and yet people like you give them a pass.


If it didn't stop them from winning the NC, then it didn't matter.

for the BCS title. The betting odds I have seen have LSU at 12-1


If they'd let you bet $12 to win $1 AGAINST LSU winning the NC, you'd be insane not to bet it if you're a betting person. LSU is a bad bet at anything less than 80 to 1.

I love this post! I have been telling anyone that would listen this same story. Nothing against those Juniors leaving but that had to affect the attitude of this team throughout the year. They were going and more power to them!!!!
