re: What is the your biggest Les Miles mystery during his tenure?


why the fans hate on him so much. he has done NOTHING but give LSU success and he has been an incredible ambassador for the school. he is getting more players through school and they are getting their degrees. I think we rank 2nd in the SEC behind Vanderbilt... that's saying something isn't it?... and also, his players love the man like their own fathers!



our graduation rate hasn't been hire with any other coach and as previously stated he's won 80% + of his games in the closest thing to the NFL in college football.

Les Miles ... FTW!!
who else would you rather coach!? that is the real damn question. WHO THE FRICK do you get to replace him?!..

What in the hell are you talking about?

I never said i didn't want him as coach or didn't recognize where LSU is today.

He is just one of those Wacky Coaches who is always making decisions or not making decisions that are going to be questioned.

I like Les, most of the time.

How this man continues to recruit so well, yet he doesn't seem to be able to communicate that well. He seems goofy, hard headed and stubborn but I have a want for this man to be our coach.

NO ONE. He is the best coach LSU has had. In 8 seasons, he has only 2 seasons with fewer than 10 wins, and only 3 with fewer than 11.
In 5 seasons, Saban only had 2 seasons with more than 8 wins. Yes, I know Miles took over a better team, but LSU was not void of talent when Saban took over.
I think the fact that he is a little quirky makes him perfect for this state. This state is different, and that's why I love it.

Mine has to be Miles not playing JL in BCS championship game. That was a mystery that will never be solved. You certainly can't explain it.
The team was rolling along and was 8-0 with Lee as the starting QB, then Les interceded and inserted Jswag for some unknown reason. This destroyed the chemistry and the offense was never the same the rest of the year, culminating in the NC abomination.

Why Charles Scott didn't get a single carry in the 2nd half of the UK/LSU game in 07.. [after rushing for 94 yards on 7 carries and 2 tds in the first half]

What was with the ultra conservative playcalling against UF in '09?

Mine is why Russel Shepard wasn't moved to DB his freshman year when it was obvious he couldn't play WR or QB. Not that he would have been a starter but he would have had a chance and he could have lended depth to the positiion.

There are a few "rumors" that explain it pretty well.

2011. One of the most impressive runs in college football history. A dominating defense, very efficient offense, and special teams that scored points and pinned offenses back.

Why on earth do you switch starting QBs midway through the season?

Ultimately, I really think that's what led to what happened in the BCSNC.

It blows my mind how LSU can have a record setting number of guys drafted this draft but accomplish so little ( 1 SEC title)

"Clock it"

Many many many clock mis managements

Players looking at each other in key situations without a clue what to do, many times after a time out, sometimes after 2 times out

I could go on for days about this arse clown but I'm late for work



Oh yea, who makes a "number 2 nationally ring"?

What's so frustrating is him essentially doing the same thing to Jeremy Hill in the 4th quarter of the Chick Fil A Bowl against Clemson. Hill had 125 yards on 12 carries through 3 quarters. We punt to start the 4th up by 11. Clemson uses 5:26 and kicks a field goal making it an 8 point game. Ware up the middle, pass, sack, punt taking up just 2:19. Clemson uses 4:20 scoring a TD, missing two point conversion making it a 2 point game with 2:47 to go. Pass, Pass, Pass, Punt, using just 1:08 for us. Clemson uses the remaining 1:39 and kicks a game winning field goal.

Sure would've been nice to give the ball to the RB that averaged 10.4 yards/carry and maybe just let him run the clock down and win the game for you. But, no. We run the ball once in the 4th quarter (with Ware) and drop back to pass it 5 times. Two 3 and outs in a row to lose the game. Fantastic.

God, I hope Cameron can fix Les Miles' offensive woes.

I get not playing Lee on 1-9

Benching Scott vs. UK in 07. Still boggles me

Guy was going wild in the 1st half. . .unstoppable. . .didn't see the field again until overtime.
