Actually, not true. Bet you didn't like Coach Miles from the get-go so facts don't mean anything to you. Just which SEC HC would you like instead? DC? OC? LSU is a class program except for folks with your attitude....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Grateful to have Les as our coach - deaconscholar on 12/4/14 at 6:03 am|
Well done. We will appreciate Coach Miles only later - like Coach Mac. The Negatigers didn't live through the Stovall, Archer, Hallman, DiNardo years....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Miles major flaw, excessive loyalty - deaconscholar on 11/27/14 at 6:36 am|
You are absolutely correct. No question. Review every personnel decision he's ever made and you'll find that Les Miles' greatest quality - and weakness - is loyalty to people and, believe me, LSU. He has yet to learn that sometimes loyalties conflict and the leader has to make a difficult decisio...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Miles on the McClendon path - deaconscholar on 11/19/14 at 6:00 pm|
I too was at LSU when Coach Mac was fired. You are absolutely right about his being fired. And I'll admit to being one who wanted him gone. It was just plain embarrassing to be a Tiger fan because of Alabama.
Today I regret his firing. First, Alabama had Bear Bryant, one of the great coaches...

You mean the same Gary Crowton for whom the negatigers bought a one-way ticket out of Baton Rouge? Early onset of Alzheimers?

Right on! In my years of working with teachers, business leaders, et.al. I have NEVER seen a man in a high leadership position look so disappointed and dejected. His post-game comments were horrible to watch. He seemed so sad and angry that he was near tears. We do have a problem....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is Cam trying to get Fired? - deaconscholar on 11/18/14 at 4:32 am|
I have been a Les Miles fan since he arrived, even when there were glaring mistakes and obvious coaching problems. That being said, his post-game news conf. was loaded. "Something's going on there?"!!!!! My guess is that Miles will wait for off-season and unload Cam and maybe others. Arkansas po...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How does Cam Cameron get a pass in this debacle? - deaconscholar on 11/17/14 at 4:40 pm|
You pretty much summed it up. I suspect that Coach Miles is waiting for the end of the season and Cameron to find a job - like Bradley Dale Peveto (sp?) and others. Say what you want and find every reason you can, the bottom line is that it ain't workingf and we're about to ruin two potentially fi...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Brandon Harris in his own words - deaconscholar on 11/17/14 at 1:13 pm|
LSU has a QB problem and has had one for years since Ryan Periloux (sp?) got kicked off the team. For a couple of years we blamed him for leaving us with inexperienced QBs. Then there was Jarret Lee/Jordan Jefferson fiasco. Now it's Jennings/Harris.
Why does Coach Miles say that Harris will pl...

Boy, you're good! I'm glad you set Mett straight. I'm sure you can get on the coaching staff with your obvious expertise and insight and football knowledge. It would be a welcome addition. One of Miles' best qualities (besides using The Rant to manage the team) is his ability to hire top quality...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Les Miles surrounds himself with talent - deaconscholar on 2/6/14 at 6:34 am|
Yes, the #2 class in the nation. Just another sign that, as many have noted on the Rant, the LSU football program is headed down the toilet.

The thing that concerns me about this team is the fans - everyone of us. Last year's bowl was too far beneath our dignity so nobody cared - and it was obvious from the get-go. The worst performers? The fans!...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How much longer will Les Miles be here? - deaconscholar on 12/14/13 at 10:23 am|
You must not have understood - Les Miles is the best we've had. And there's something else you don't understand - he's got integrity and total loyalty to LSU. He's proven both more times than you know.
He's turned Michigan down twice, Arkansas once, and was considered for Texas. "Running the ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: We are going to find out a lot about Les Miles next Saturday vs A&M - deaconscholar on 11/16/13 at 10:05 am|
What, for example, happened at the Sugar Bowl (I think I'm right)? Rumor was a big conflict within the team just before the game. If memory serves Jordan Jefferson was involved. The rumors were never substantiated and nothing else was said.
I was at the Clemson pep rally and game. It was abun...
| Tiger Rant|| re: We are going to find out a lot about Les Miles next Saturday vs A&M - deaconscholar on 11/16/13 at 7:39 am|
Absolutely! And this is brought on by the poor showing against Clemson and the Ole Miss game this year. Both loses should never have happened. The sole question is whether Coach Miles can get our team ready for the challenge. A "don't care" loss (Clemson) will pretty much define Les Miles and LSU ...
