Many football knowledgeable people including many on this board think LSU wins despite of CLM.
They fail to realize just how difficult it is to remain elite in this conference year in and year out. These same people wouldve put Bobby Petrino ahead of CLM a few years ago. Or a guy like Urban Meyer who couldnt handle the stress. Claimed he had health issues and couldnt coach anymore? The SEC obviously claimed another because when "easy to win" OSU called, all of a sudden his mysterious illness went away. BTW Miles had the same opportunity at Michigan and decided to stay at LSU and compete against the best.
But thats right he's a terrible coach and is only the 7th best in his own conference?
I dont know if I will ever trust CLM on his game day mgt but I do trust him with everything else and wouldnt trade him for any coach.
When its all said and done Les will out last them all.
Head Coach criteria
1. Sanctions in SEC- 2nd to Vandy
2. Graduation- 2nd to Vandy
3. Recruiting/NFL pipeline - 1st or 2nd
4. Win Loss record- 1st or 2nd
Does this look like the 7th best coach in a conference?
I wonder how Chavis and Cameron found their way to LSU and how Studrawa decided to stay after his demotion. I guess this all happened despite CLM.
He had a team that was 13-0 just two years ago, playing the toughest schedule in the country. And he did all this with poor QB play. Show me the last time that happened.
Its amazing the AD just gave him a raise and an extention, what in the world is he looking at.
