Les Miles is a 100% Class act, the guy we got now is in way over his head.
Thank goodness that LSU will be 3 and 9 this year and O will go. Take that to the Bank Bitch!

This is so far from the truth. People who couldn't understand him didn't want to. Because he didn't talk like them he didn't have the same accent, he used funny words.

I never had issues deciphering what Les said. I'm not a mental midget that has lived in the swamp my whole life.

Because as a coach, he's paranoid of saying anything that might "help" the other team or outsiders learn something about his team.


He said this in the podcast. He didn't want to give the other team anything, ever.

'm sure he was aware of jordy's position on his employment last year. No doubt les deserved to be fired but this O disaster will actually help his legacy imo.


Absolutely.

I wanted Les gone as well - hiring his friends, no offensive change, etc, etc. But all that looks small now when you have a football program in collapse mode.

re: Miles was on OTB with T bob this morning
My take on Miles now that we are rehashing history - Miles no doubt was stubborn - promised to improve or change the offense - his best buddy Cam is diagnosed with prostate cancer - rather than intercede/fire Cam for an inept start to the 2016 season, Miles allows his friend to sink or swim. His loyalty to Cam was his ultimate demise. And......I do think Miles was tired of the battle to reach a bar that was set exceedingly high since 2011 - that being, out recruit and beat Saban. Anything less was unacceptable. Miles wanted to win, but he wasn't going to throw anyone under the bus - he was ready to walk away if that's what the maddening crowd wanted. And yes, he had a nice retirement package (well earned) to make that exit acceptable to him and his family.

After Alleva is inevitably booted, we hire Les.


Les seems like a good candidate for AD but one thing bothers me about him. He puts loyalty and friendship above competence too much when it comes to those working for him. See Peveto.

In his podcast, Gundy asked Les if he wants to coach again and Les sounded pretty clear that we wants to get back into it. I doubt he would want to be an AD over having the chance to be a head coach.

Starting to think there really is some credence to something said recently that he is hanging around because he wants to replace Joe as AD.

Can't wait until AD Les fires Orgeron and then pulls a Barry Alvarez and coaches our bowl game.

he goes out and entices his good friend Mike Gundy to take the job.

Tell me you're not intrigued


I'm not trying to be negative about that, but here's a thought...

Things weren't working out with Les' good friend Cam Cameron when Cam was his subordinate. The world knew that Cam needed to go and it didn't happen, and ultimately helped lead to Miles' termination.

If Gundy wasn't working out as a good fit at LSU, would we face the same dilemma with Miles, unable to can a close friend? If Miles went after Fleck, Patterson or Peterson- there you go, I'm in 1000%.

Miles made some really good points.

Too bad he couldn't change just a little bit.

Did he ever address Jordy? Or did he continue to call Jordy T-Bob the whole time?

At first I thought it was an accident. Then he continued. It was obvious it was intentiona

He did once at the end. Jordy deserved the treatment. Les was awesome.

Miles actually does know how to run a program.

O is such a amateur.
