re: Harris - Miles response on radio show told alot IMO - PacWilly
[quote]C'mon, man! Harris is not dumb! [/quote] I'm not saying he's dumb. I think he's just having trouble adjusting to a pro-style system. That is understandable. In my earlier posts, you'll see I'm actually pulling for the guy. We need him to hunker down and learn this system so that he c...

re: Harris - Miles response on radio show told alot IMO - PacWilly
[quote]I'd be surprised if LSU wasn't at 8 wins right now with Harris in.[/quote] Pure speculation, of course, but starting Harris from Day 1 would have been a guaranteed 4-5 loss season. I'd bet the coaching staff thought Jennings would have performed better than what they are getting and we wo...

[quote]I wouldn't expect to see Harris play much this year[/quote] When I said this year, I meant tomorrow (as in what's left of this year). I don't think it will help Harris at this point to play against aTm because if he doesn't grasp the offense at this point, he won't in a 5-day week. I'd h...

re: Harris - Miles response on radio show told alot IMO - PacWilly
[quote]But, the concept of us being more limited with him than with AJ seems a bit of a stretch [/quote] I hear ya! I scratched my head too on this one. I was wanting Harris to see the field too until I saw him see the field. It was clear that this was Jennings team until Arkansas. That was a...

re: Honestly, who out there could replace Miles? - PacWilly
How about Rich Rod? He knows Louisiana. I think his stint at Michigan was an exception on his resume. Wouldn't he jump ship from Arizona?...

[quote]Miles gets outworked by several other SEC coaches on the recruiting trail, and this isn't something new. [/quote] Who is outrecruiting LSU consistently? ETA: Other than the future HOF coach at Bama that has a recruiting budget that is a multiple of LSU's....

re: Harris - Miles response on radio show told alot IMO - PacWilly
[quote]Miles and his offensive coordinators have done a poor job of developing a decent passing game regardless of what QB is starting. [/quote] Agreed. I've stated in this thread and others that I think we have a QB development problem which is on Cam Cameron. Ultimately, Les hired Cam so he n...

re: Harris - Miles response on radio show told alot IMO - PacWilly
[quote]If they bring in a JUCO (BIG IF) next semester I think it's probably likely Harris is starting at McNeese or SELU next fall.[/quote] Because Harris is coming along too slow, the coaching staff would be smart to bring in a JUCO QB. If that upsets Harris, then so be it. We need a backup pl...

re: Harris - Miles response on radio show told alot IMO - PacWilly
[quote]I know they are doing the best with what they have, but the issue is that (as you're seeing with RG3) developing a non traditional drop back passer into one is very difficult and takes a long time. Why don't they just recruit guys who can come in and play that style already?[/quote] Valid ...

[quote]Can you please show me where Miles said he doesnt know the plays they told him to know?[/quote] This is the whole point of this thread, man. Miles is not going to say "Harris doesn't know the plays". But, he said it without actually saying those exact words. What he did say implies the ...

re: Harris - Miles response on radio show told alot IMO - PacWilly
[quote]But you're really stretching with your "nuanced" argument. [/quote] Our offense is not a one-read offense and requires them to make multiple reads. Our offense requires the QB to take snaps under center to allow for a true play action pass situation keying off our running game. Jennin...

re: Harris - Miles response on radio show told alot IMO - PacWilly
[quote]Surely you can't be serious. We run the most simplistic, vanilla offense possible. [/quote] If you can't appreciate the nuances of a pro-style offense and the requirements of the QB in that system, then you are showing your ignorance. Cam's offense requires alot out of the QB....

[quote]we make the choice to live in fear or faith or now. [/quote] So, if I have faith in Harris, he will automatically know the playbook and will lead us to victory? Faith is the answer? So, regardless of him not knowing plays, we are just going to put him out there and hope for the best? ...

[quote]Miles plays favorites. It's unbelievable to me how some people don't see it by now.[/quote] I will admit the possibility of Miles playing favorites at the cost of losing winnable games if you admit that there is a possibility that Jennings may, in fact, give LSU the best chance to win....

[quote] agree with this, but that goes right back to this: quote:Miles is the problem[/quote] I can't argue with that. If Cam can't get it done, it's Miles problem. He hired him and has to own that. ...

[quote]Captain Obvious[/quote] Not so obvious to the people on this board, is it? Many think Miles is the problem. Many think Miles has a personal vendetta on Harris. Many think Cam is a bad playcaller. I don't think any of those things. I think the source of our problems are with the OC...

[quote]I don't think the issue is Jennings over Harris. The issue is why has it gotten to the point where a QB like Jennings is LSU's best chance to win.[/quote] Yep. If you read all of my posts, I am basically saying the same thing. We are stuck in this situation because we lack QB development...

[quote]So he doesnt know the offense because they arent teaching it to him. [/quote] The use of the word "encumbering" should have been a clue to you. The use of this word would imply that he's not being taught the whole offense because he can't handle it. He's only being taught enough so that...
