[quote]Seems several other fan bases think higher of Miles than many LSU fans [/quote] Yes, they practically universally love his uniqueness (as someone mentioned earlier) and his quirks & he's a likeable guy. Doesn't mean they want him as their coach...there's a difference....

[quote]My experiences are the same as I travel around. Just came back from [b]Aggie town [/b] and was telling some of them that Miles doesnt have the support of 15-20% of the Tiger fan base and they thought I was exaggerating. Some of them still think Im FOS. Same thing happened in my trip to [b]S...

re: Tommy Casanova - Billy Ray Valentine
[quote]Yeah because nobody but LSU has great talent. [/quote] according to the NFL draft and all the "namethatposition-U" stuff, it could be argued that LSU has the best talent. I would certainly think that LSU's talent level is better than the 13.5 average final ranking of the past 6 seasons. Tha...

[quote]Our hitting is puzzling. Houston hit line drives & ground balls. They did not swing for the fences. I never saw one of their players try to hit a home run. We hit a lot of lazy, high, routine fly balls. Why so many fly balls by LSU! Can't our hitters be taught to hit line drives or down o...
