People think we should just automatically win evry game and get every top recruit. Just doesnt work that way. So much hard work has gone into making this program what it is today. we didnt just wake up and LSU go 13-0. There were people behind that raising your expectations so you can lash out on here like a bunch of pussies. it just baffles my mind how ungrateful people are. To the players and coaches. I know when i was in school ,these players were my friends and my peers. Same could be said for anyone who attended LSU. I just dont get the hatred that flows from the fans.
I'm fairly certain that my tens of thousands of dollars of donations since 2000 have contributed to the success of the program, along with my purchase of season tickets, my annual travel to away games, my attendence at bowl games, my consumption of thousands of dollars of LSU merchandise, and my tireless passion for LSU football. So I'm going to continue objectively evaluating the team, rather than obseqiously and blindly endorsing whatever happens to transpire. We had a good but not great year. We didn't win the NC, we didn't win the SEC, we didn't secure the SEC West, we finished tied for the fourth best record in the SEC, we won't attend a BCS bowl. Moreover, all of the evidence suggests that Bama is a better program than LSU and Saban is a better coach than Miles.
Those are indisputable facts. If you don't like them, I don't give a shite.
I know there are plently of fans who are content being second best and not winning NC's. Good for them.

Take away the winningest coach in LSU hist, and a lot of things disappear. Including fans and money. Maybe even new baseball stadiums, softball stadiums, updates to basketball facilities, updates to tiger stadium.

Are you insane? Disrespectful? How are posters that wonder why on earth CLM makes some of the calls/plans he does disrespectful. He is open to criticism by the very nature of his job. He is a public servant for heaven's sake. Everything he does is open to questioning. Get a grip.

It's too much playstation know it alls.
Dont get the difference in NFL and College fan tolerance. No one is calling for Drew Brees' head after the game tonight. Few are mad at Payton for the bounty scandal. Yet if Mett doesn't lead a receiver perfectly he's eaten alive. Miles doesn't score 40 and win...we suck.
