Tiger Rant Poll: Les Miles or high-powered offense, "unproven" HC?


Cast your vote here. Who would you prefer to be the head coach of our beloved Tigers?

Les Miles:

80-18 with LSU over 7+ years
3 SECw titles, 2 SEC, and 1 BCSNC
5-2 Bowl record
Recruited talents like Patrick Peterson, Mo Claiborne, Michael Brockers, Stevan Ridley, Jordan Jeffeson(lulz), and 2012 Heisman candidate Tyrann Mathieu
LSU averaging 432.8 yards/gm, 39 ppg


or someone significantly less proven with a high powered offense?

Dana Holgorsen:

involved in Texas Tech offense 2000-07
2010 okie St. OC
2011-12 West Virginia Head Coach (14-3)
West Virginia averaging 598.5 yards/gm, 53 ppg

Art Briles:

Recruited and developed Heisman-winning QB Robert Griffin III
2008-12 Baylor Head Coach (28-25)
Baylor averaging 601.5 yards/gm, 54.3 ppg

Jimbo Fisher:

2000-06 LSU OC
2007-10 FSU OC, 2010-12 FSU HC (24-8)
FSU averaging 544.4 yards/gm, 51 ppg



This is no way a flame or troll, I'm genuinely asking the Rant if they'd take almost a sure 10 wins per season with Les Miles, albeit "boring" and a bit frustrating at times, or take a risk with a relatively unproven HC with a high-powered offense?



TL;DR you want Les or someone else?

Anyone who would honestly switch for any other college coach besides maybe Nick Saban based on success, recruiting, and records is looking for a reason to end their life.

Im not saying it is time for Les to go but when or even if that time comes , I like Holgerson. I like his fire, I like his offensive philosophy and hopefully he could just hire a SEC type Defensive coordinator.

Any of those 3 would run circles around Miles as a game day coach.... Don't know about recruiting but Les doesn't seem to get the most out of his players like the other coaches do... And I bet any of those 3 know how to manage the clock and knows what down it is !!!!

while I do loves Miles and our 80-18 record under him, thinking about our defense with Holgorgen's offense makes me pee a little.

I can think of 100 better coaches than you listed. MILES Lacks fire and Intensity. His players are starting to play like it, lazy sloppy and undisciplined. It's really getting hard to watch.

Imagine Holgerson as head coach and OC with Chief on defense..... That would be scary with the high school talent in Louisiana... Structure, discipline and creative offensive scheme with imagination...

I think Les is fine for a head coach. They should look at Tony Franklin from La Tech as an offensive coordinator. He did good things at Kentucky, MTSU, and Troy. He is also a highly regarded recruiter. Look at LA Tech's offense, imagine that explosive offense with our talent with a Chavis defense, It would be epic!!

Its not the high flying, dynamic offense I want. I'd rather a coach that has control of his team and knows how to get them up for cupcake games.

And no running game. No way LSU would win the SEC throwing the ball 40 times a game

That's what I'm saying. I love our system because it produces wins. It's just boring to watch.

I like the system too. Running and stopping the run is always the first priority to win. I just feel the other coaches would be better at game day coaching and overall team discipline...
