I remember after the UAB game lots of people were saying Saban was no better than Dinardo and why in the hell did we pay 1.2 million for this guy. Those guys and the ones like them are still around and are absolutely in the negatiger category. These are unintelligent people who overreact to any situation, have unrealistic expectations and once they have a negative impression want to be proven right.
On the other hand, I remember people defending Dinardo when he was fired, I remember people defending John Brady and Trent Johnson when they were fired. These are definitely positigers who will blindly support anyone wearing purple and gold regardless of the state of the program.
With all that said, anyone who doesn't think Miles is one of the top 10 coaches in CFB should go by some Bama gear and in several years you can jump to whatever next program is on top. Anyone should be able to admit that the 2008 defense was a big step back for LSU, not giving Miles credit for correcting the problem is stupid. Anyone should be able to admit that Crowton needed to be let go, buy you also have to acknowledge he led the highest scoring offense in LSU history in 2007 and inherited major QB issues in 08 and somewhat 09. You can't fault anyone for Kragthorp's health problems and Stud being rushed into the position, and he put up a season that he shouldn't get fired for. Now, the offense got worse instead of building on 2011 and once again, Miles has taken corrective action.
