[quote]i don't think you know this...but Miles has just as much say in the defense as the offense[/quote]
So how does that work when facing a hurry-up offense? Chavis (in the booth) communicates to Miles and then Miles to the defensive captain? Seems like the play would be over before the captain...

I am not for firing him, but the antithesis of this might be how much the program loses over those same years for a coach who can't live up to expectations?
Speaking of expectations: they must be spelled out in the contract, and there are more factors to a coach being relieved of a position than ...

I also think that comparing Les Miles and Muschamp is like comparing apples and oranges. I'm a little disappointed at Les, but he manages his program a good bit better. The two do share one thing this year, however: Murphy has been alive and well in both programs in 2014. Murphy's cousin Breaks has ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Les is very lucky this week - drdrfaulkner on 11/18/14 at 3:59 pm|
It's beginning to look like the only way Harris plays is for Jennings to get hurt. I just wonder if there are some Tiger fans who are wishing this so that they can say "See, we told you so," if Harris succeeds, and the coaches have to eat crow. However, if Harris doesn't pan out, the coaching staff ...

[quote]we don't have an sec quarterback [/quote]
What really is stupid is why some think Harris was recruited so highly and that LSU got him commit so he wouldn't play for some other team--just in case he does become SEC caliber and then beats us. Well--let's see--Dak Prescott goes to MSU, and we...

I find it interesting to see that no game scores in history have been changed due to bad officiating--but wins have been taken away for other reasons. We can RANT and rave all day long and never get any satisfaction until we realize that life is more than sports--and, in the end, we have to learn to...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Next year at QB........my real concern that we're not really talking about - drdrfaulkner on 11/13/14 at 12:48 pm|
I think it's a matter of development. A player can develop maturity only in the face of adversity. If you don't learn to succeed through adverse conditions, it is questionable as to where the person or team has achieved success. The difference between AJ and BH is that one has a little more maturity...

The problems Cam has are more about a quarterback making bonehead decisions and player execution (like dropped passes and missed assignments). Chavis has had less of this problem, but there are instances where defensive players could have intercepted passes but dropped the ball. Another difference i...
