i have never been a miles fan but i am an lsu fan so i will continue to offer what support i can while he is in charge, but my biggest concern is if he does indeed go, who do you replace him with? there really isn't an ideal, realistic option out there right now. maybe next year or the year after the timing will be right. i'd rather continue to roll with les then end up with fricking bo pelini or whoever the frick was being rumored as a candidate during the last michigan flirtation.
We'll only know that when he leaves. I'm willing to admit that there MAY BE a guy out there (whether it's a current successful coach at a big time school or a guy who's an up and comer) who when he steps foot in Baton Rouge all the lights come on and he's EVERYTHING the fanbase wants and he dominates in ways Bryant, Saban, Lombardi, etc never dreamed of. I'll literally hurt my face from smiling if that were to happen.
Of course, I remember that Christmas when Saban finally quit flirting with the NFL and hopped the flight to Miami and thinking, "Well...that was fun. So much for being elite." As far as I'm concerned, those fears have proven to be unwarranted given the continued success of the program under Miles. What I do know is that when Miles does leave (unless he get fired for actually losing) I'll have that same pit in my stomach worrying about if the next guy will hold it all together. Given where we've just been, where we are, and what I think looks to be the near future, I'm just not willing to risk that move.
The mileage of others clearly varies.
