I hate to tell you, but your co-worker is not an LSU fan
So if he's not a sunshine pumper, then he's not a true fan? bullshite! This team has shown me nothing to convince me that they're improving, and the responsibility falls squarely on the shoulders of Miles and his coaches. The coaches are ultimately responsible for the product they put out on the field.
I know a bunch of people who have been LSU fans and season ticket holders for decades. They suffered trough the Archer, Hallman, and Dinardo years. They love the Tigers but they don't love Les Miles.
