i too am aware that LSU will probably never have an offensive heisman winner as long as Miles is coach
People say this as if it's meaningful or relates to Miles in some way. LSU hasn't had REAL potential Heisman winner on offense since Charlie Mac, and that was Charles Alexander. Neither Hodson, nor Hilliard, nor Faulk, nor even Reed were ever in the hunt. Russell could have been in the conversation based on the way we closed out 2006 had he come back in 2007, but we'll never know how that would have turned out.
While I think it's true that given our offensive woes we're unlikely to produce any player that puts up gaudy enough stats to warrant consideration, let's not pretend LSU had been churning our Heisman hopefuls only to be squashed once Miles got here. That just isn't so.
