Instead, Miles is not held up and compared to Nick Saban while at LSU. He's compared to this non-existent Saban at LSU based on the misconceptions LSU fans have that had Saban stayed at LSU he'd have had the same success he's currently having at BAMA. All this despite the fact that Saban's teams only lost less than 3 games a season one time. All this despite the fact that we all know BAMA exists in an entirely different SEC than we do. An SEC with favorable schedules, that gets do-overs, that has the conference office set up in its home state, etc. We seem to forget that simply being "Nick Saban" was not enough to get the SEC to even pay attention to his bitching about having to play the Friday after Thanksgiving. We also seem to forget that once BAMA's coach, the minute they switched the Iron Bowl to that day, he bitched and it immediately was moved back and LSU was thrown onto Friday again.
Goddamn it is great to see another tiger fan that doesn't have his head up his ass.
The double standard between Miles and BamaSaban is unreal.
I've said it here a million times: When Saban had to meet the LSU standard, he struggled. When Saban's teams at Bama have to play more than two ranked teams a year, they lose. They ALWAYS do.
Saban has had only ONE regular season at Bama where he had an "LSU schedule". That was 2010. How did that turn out?
Let's not forget this as well:
In 2003, when Saban won his only title at LSU, there was a coach on the west coast that the media informed us was better, and deserved Saban/LSU's title even though they didn't play in the game.
Think this would happen to BamaSaban? Nope. Instead, for BamaSaban, it is the exact opposite: when he fails, he gets propped up with mulligans, easy schedules, officiating favoritism, and media love...
What is the difference there for Saban? Yup. All in the name.
