They see miles as a circus animal at best.
As I've said on here before, ESPN and CBS both dislike LSU because we are the number 1 threat to Bama's dominance. Bama is a better story line than LSU so they need to do whatever they can to pump Bama and Saban up and keep LSU from stealing their spotlight.

With ESPN (and most other sports "journalists") it's all about the flavor of the week. If Bama won the BCS, they're the ticket. If A&M has the glitterati QB, get their name in there. It's never about what's honest, it's just about what will attract attention. Ignore them and they won't bother you.
Guys, the article was about best recruiting head coaches, not best recruiting programs as a whole. I'm a Les fan but I don't necessarily think he's the one closing the deal with these kids. Frank Wilson is the guy when it comes to recruiting. This is like being pissed that Les isn't being recognized as one of the best defensive head coaches when it's Chief who runs the defense!
