CajunPhil, "8 and will improve".
Miles is 60 years old, been at LSU for 9 years and been coaching for almost his entire professional career. What you now see, is what it is. My problem is that I assess him in the 6-8 range, but we are paying for a 10. I believe that Saban is a better coach today than he was when he was at LSU, but after five plus years in the SEC, he's formulated his "process". I would not expect a similar formulation from Miles. I believe, if we are to return to top five category, we need a change. Switching coordinators, firing the OL coach or other suggestions posted on this site are indicators that the HC has made poor decisions in the past. A tiger does not change his stripes especially after he's 60.
