While I think that may be a bit of hyperbole, I don't know how one can have a legitimate counter argument for 80%. While Les may be frustrating at times, he runs a clean program, and he's fearless. It's also maddening seeing him ride the line between stifling conservatism and controlled chaos.
Les is a much better coach than some Tiger fans make him out to be. The majority of the angst most likely comes from jealousy of Saban and Bama. If Saban was not in the SEC or the West for that matter, Les would be so much more revered. TRUETIGERTALE, with that being said, I too will sorely miss Les when he chews the cud of Tiger Stadium's grass for the last time. It may not always be pretty, but 80% is. It's been a hell of a ride and there's more to come.
