Since most of you on here are experts at coaching...



I have a few questions. In Miles' tenure at LSU have you ever stopped to think about his losses? I mean dig deep and see the reason why we lost those games. Have you paid attention through the years while he has been the head coach?

How many times when watching LSU has the question "What the hell was that" popped in your head?

Case in point. Why on earth would we run an option play to the short side of the field to RS not once but 2 times IN A ROW?

So I ask you, who does that? Why does that happen? Who is at fault? and finally WHY would you do that?

And that is just 1 example. Again go back to the losses and you will understand where I am coming from.

I think you're digging too deep in all the wrong places, and should invest in a Sam's size Purel.

I know why I would do it, but I don't want you to get a big head.

I wish we'd run the wing T wishveer out of the meerkat wildpistol, and then fake a punt on 3rd down.

You may scratch your head and wonder "Why in the hell did he do that?". But you never have to ask "Why in the hell didn't he try that?"

I love Les because he does take chances. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. The man has kept us relevant for his tenure. We would all love to win a NC every year, but it just won't happen. I think we are going to start seeing a shift in the playing style. With true passers like Mett and Rivers on the horizon. Things are going to be real interesting over the next few years. We can now have a balanced attack. You started to see that with Bama.

Actually your wrong I do like the guy. My angle is simple. Does he have his thumb in on everything or not? Latest rumor is that Wing called for the fake FG.

If Im head coach, I dont care if he is an All-American punter, after that I get in his face and tell him to sit the rest of the game to take the time to think about what he did.

Sure Miles' has shown fire sure he has taken chances, but I'm sorry be aware of what is happening.

Another example. Mett long completed pass to OBJ down to like the 33 or something. What happens --- BRAKES...... Saban looked like he had lost, his players had thier hands on their hips, they were winded and beaten and they knew it. PUT THEM AWAY in YOUR house PERIOD. Right there. Show the SWAG, show that we are LSU and end it. Stomp on them.....but nope run, roll out short pass, run, wildcat stopped. Yes they punted and we got it back, but Im saying it should have never gotten to that.

Have you ever taken umbrage at a media outlet's characterization of LSU fans? Because I think that would be deep fried gold.

Yes, LSU should be undefeated since '07 if only LSU wasn't coached by Les.

I doubt that Wing called the fake...if so, why was Miles not surprised? Why in his interview did he say, I wish I would have kept that one in my hat (prior to halftime)?

Everyone agrees that he got tight on the last offensive series, but he has long been a believer that our defense can close out games. I can't think of too many game winning drives against LSU under Miles. Kentucky and Arky in 2007 come to mind. But those just forced it to OT or gave us enough time to return the favor.

He opened up the playbook all night and kept Bama on their heels, defensively. I couldn't of expected more, much less drawn it up and if anyone could have, then they should be making at least 1 mil a year as an OC somewhere.

I would like to discuss what the frick you are trying to say, but your OP reads like it's written by a slack jawed retard. Other than that, it's pretty clear what your point is.

You name me a coach, and I can give you an example of something they did where I said "wtf." It's very easy to say...especially after hindsight based on the outcome of the play.

I think you thought that we would think about that point and how pointed it was or was not, but you didn't even bother to explain how it didn't not affect the outcome of the game. I agree you have to look at all of the things that you have to look at, and those things probably deserve a look but if your point was to get agreement, then you really frame your point as one thing that we should all agree to know about.

It is probably because all of this has been discussed to the point of absurdity. Les makes bonehead decisions some time, just like everyone else does. He also makes excellent decisions at times. Why focus on nothing but the negative?

Has his coaching cost us some games, Hell yes. Has his coaching won us some games (make that a lot more games), Hell yes. Just like every coach in America.

Take two Xanax and sleep on it.

He's lost a few games for us. I give him a pass on Ole Miss though.. after seeing the same damn thing happen in the Texas/Nebraska game in '09 it's quite obvious that it was referee error -- we had time on the clock to spike it.

We were playing Florida a few years ago when Spurrier was still there. He threw a WR screen left, which we intercepted and ran in for a TD, but it was called back for a penalty. Next play, Spurrier ran the same play for an incompletion. Next play, same damn play again, for a TD this time.

Maybe Les just needed to run it one more time?

1) you love LSU and watch their games more often and infinitely more intensely than you do other schools. Every other coach in the country could do the same shite Les does, but you wouldn't know it because you're not watching their every move.

) Because our losses are so few and far between, you you remember them more. Hard to remember 40 times in 8 years. /uch easier to.remember 15.

3) because we're so good and lose so little, our losses tend to be big games with big consequences, which make them stand out even more.

4) As much as you may have convinced yourself you're a "realist," you lack pespective
