Miles should've given Lee a shot in the game if only to prevent fans from haranguing him for the rest of his life. Could Lee have been worse? Even if he had thrown a pick 6 in his only possession, it would've mattered very little. After halftime, when Miles & crew still kept using the same offensive...

In the Bowl formerly known as Citrus vs. Iowa @ the end of '04 season, there was a blatant block in the back (actually pushed him to the ground, face-first)on an LSU DB on the verge of tackling the receiver before he scored the winning TD. It was in wide-open space so anyone watching the ball-carrie...
