[quote]Bull shite. If Harris were allowed to play through his deficiencies, which reportedly have little to do with actual game experience, LSU would have lost 3-4 more games and your ilk would be the first here calling for Miles' head. The entire rant wanted Harris to start at AU, then melted down an...

[quote]"The big concern with him is about his mental makeup," said one of the coaches. "When we saw him in Dallas, he kept telling people how he'd never really been coached before. Like, he was using the same excuse, the same crutch, on people. He sounded rehearsed. You wonder if he's the guy who ma...

[quote]This is ludicrous [/quote]
Why? There is a difference between mop up duty and one start and actually getting legitimate game experience.
The second half of the season wasted Harris' year. It isn't about him being the starter at all. It's about using the season effectively.

Your telling a true sophmore, that will be competing for the QB job at LSU, to transfer? Couldn't believe what I was hearing. [/quote]

[quote]Saban liked him enough to bring him back though.
As a position coach.
I agree that there are too many variables, but this is truly a mediocre hire given his history. He's been a DC for 4 years. In that time, he's one defense in the top 19 and 2 30th or above.
I don't think...

Clemson's defensive rankings under Vic Koenning from 2005 to 2008, which are the years before Steele took over:
2005 - #11 Scoring Defense, #20 Total Defense

Les needed a fall guy for next year. Now he will blame Chavis for forcing him to hire late resulting in hiring Steele that killed his defense.
Anyone wondering why Les waited for this, it wouldn't shock me that he waited for the early enrollees to move in and then drop this on them. :lol:...
