to a reasonable degree this game, one that shows he truly, to use his own words, "has a want" for success, I just might boo and boo loudly.
Five years without a respectable offense, the 3-inches-and-a-puff-of-dust as his core offensive philosophy, around which is built an overall scheme that is predictable and does not allow (the reasons for which the entire LSU nation is still waiting for the answer) for game-time adjustments, is too much for me to continue to take as an LSU alum.
And yes, I'm still wondering what happened in the Superdome back in January.
As I see it, the basic problem Miles has it this:
he is afraid to take the default risks that all Div. I football teams must take every Saturday. To play the game of football, unless you have some new scheme that is superior to that called offense and defense, you must, when running an offense, make a reasonable number of forward passes. Miles deludes himself into thinking his running game is a superior scheme. And he just doesn't want to win the conventional way (balanced attack), and the irony is, he ends up taking a bigger risk of losing the games by forsaking the forward pass.
How hard-headed is this guy? We'll see later today.
