Realistic Expectations for LSU football over a decade



A buddy of mine and I had this conversation several years ago about what we thought were realistic expectations for the program.

1 NC every 10 years.(In the hunt late Nov 3-4 times)
3 SEC Championships
4-5 Top 10 finishes
Should finish in the top 25 every year

Thoughts?

10 NC or what is the point of playing the game?

3 SEC Championships


makes sense. i have said the same. one every 3 years basically or i would gladly take 3 in 10 years. Miles has not met this mark(unless he wins the SEC next year). Miles is grossly overpaid for the product he has put on the field.

I will not even compare him to the crimson dwarf. We do not even want to go there.

But if the dwarf was still in the NFL, would Miles have met the mark?

re: Realistic Expectations for LSU football over a decade


To my eyes, those expectations are sane and realistic.

I don't have the records in front of me, but if memory serves, the second season after LSU appears in the national title game have been so-so (comparatively). This season and '09 fall into that category. I can't remember '05. Was that the year that ended with a loss to Texas? Anyway, I'm not buying the "decline" talk. At all. If recent history holds, the Tigers will be back to the 11-2 range next season, even better in '15.

Let me ask your question another way: How many years out of 10 do you think LSU should make the four-team playoff.

Katrina season, no off weeks. LSU finished 11-2 and beat the ever living chit outta Miami in the Peach Bowl. Miles' first season at LSU. Texas in the Cotton was, what, 2002??

Definitely. 2-3 would be awesome.


Here's one four you: If LSU made the playoffs next year, and you had the cash to buy two seats to the semis or two seats to the championship, which would you pick? (For discussion's sake, assume travel isn't a hardship.)

Mine, in general, is to be a legitimate contender for ATL, not a darkhorse but a team that no one would be surprised if we won. This year we are solidly middle tier, like 2008 and 2009. Hopefully it will just be this year.

Dumbass. I guess you presuppose that none of the other schools in the conference have any aspirations.

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.

i would be ok with this. But if Bama continues to play the way they do it may be difficult to have the first two

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.

Nobody is even discussing NC's. Just sec titles. You do not think we can do that? With our flagship university? The talent per capita? With our facilities? The $$$ paid to miles? wow, you really have low standards.

Now go get some scope and wash away your Miles dick breath.

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.
