What's the real story on Miles to Michigan in '07? Did Herbie make the whole thing up or just break the story prematurely so that Miles was in the position of denying it or abandoning his team on the morning of the SECCG?
We'll never really know.
This is by far the most intriguing to me.
Even as a huge Miles fan and supporter, I never believed he'd turn down Michigan if they came calling. And I would not have blamed him for a second.
In fact, I said at the time he was making a mistake because he was NEVER going to win over that small but vocal portion of the fanbase that just hate him, and believed his tenure would end badly at some point.
Still, I am thrilled he's our coach, but would love to know how it all went down.
I believe he would have left had Herbie not brought the conversation up before the SECCG.
So, thanks Herb!! At least we didn't get stuck with Rich Rodriguez, which the rantards would have LOVED
