he's a better coach now than he was here, whether its just lesson's learned from coaching here or stuff he picked up in the NFL.
But let's get back to the main point of this thread. Les Miles occasionally drives us all nuts (Tenn '10, Bama BCS), but as a whole, we can't ask for a better coach. I am just amazed at how stacked this program is currently. LSU has a system that can overcome losses of even the most key players. Lose a qb, pound the football. Lose a rb, more carries for one of the other 4 stud rbs. Lose a Heisman finalist defensive back, plug in extremely talented corners and blitz less because your d-line can maul the other line anyway.
