quote:And that would be very disappointing. My water mark for this season is 9-3. 8-4 would be a bad season, but given the losses on defense not totally unexpected. I will say this, IF we lose to A&M, I would not be shocked if we laid an egg against Arkansas.
We will likely finish outside of the top 25 this season.
It would be interesting to see if you took LSU's average, end of the year ranking, over the last 10 years and see where that is based on his compensation. Since apparently he is the 7th highest paid coach, on average, is his team ranked close to 7th over the last 10 yrs.
quote:Use 26(best case scenario) for 2008 and the average is 9.25
SO, without 2008 (I don't know how that is calculated) an average almost exactly 7. Figure in 2008 and let's say 2013 15? (hopefully)that would be what? dunno.

Top 10 Highest Paid Coaches 2013
Coach, School, Conference, Total Pay
1. Nick Saban, Alabama, SEC, $5,545,852
2. Mack Brown, Texas, Big 12, $5,453,750
3. Bret Bielema, Arkansas, SEC, $5,158,863
4. Butch Jones, Tennessee, SEC, $4,860,000
5. Bob Stoops, Oklahoma, Big 12, $4,773,167

How would that change anything?LSU would probably have another NC in 2011 if Saban were still in the NFL and LSU probably wins the West in 2009 with a chance for a SEC championship. My only point is that Saban's success has limited Miles success to a point.
quote:I don't the know the answer to that question. But I will say the more success Saban has over Miles makes it easier for him to recruit LA. Any coach in the SEC, especially the West will have limitations because of Saban's extraordinary success. 2011 was the game changer. IF Bama does not make it to BCS game then Miles and Saban are on a level playing field.
Just how much do you feel the limitations will be in the future ? And I'm not talking about just losing to Satan.
Use 26(best case scenario) for 2008 and the average is 9.25
How would that change anything? No, he would not have, UNLESS he wins a SEC title next year which I highly doubt. Miles has been here 9 years. We are using a miles 10 year tenure as the example here. Not sure why you are referring to Nicky Bling.
Unless you want to use his 3 NC's in the last 4 years as a comparator. Or his 3 NC's in 6 years as well. This year being his 7th year.
