Terrible segment. Total waste of time. Seemed a bit of an F U to Scalise for turning them down.
It certainly didn't do Scalise any favors. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Has the clock officially started ticking on CLM - LJBurton on 12/31/14 at 3:45 pm|
Next year appears to be make or break. Chavis not wanting to be tied to Miles would lead me to believe that the clock is definitely ticking.
Looks like Alleva is on a two year plan, which will likely be at least one year too late....
| Tiger Rant|| re: How would Miles do in the NFL? - LJBurton on 12/29/14 at 5:37 pm|
[quote]Les Miles wins on talent. He would not succeed when coaching where the parity is so high. [/quote]
While this thread is obviously 100% about speculation and opinion. This is the most correct answer IMO. Miles has succeeded at LSU in large part because the teams he has fielded have had a ...

Miles should be nowhere near the top of any best coaches list. I have him at #6 in the SEC West. ...

I knew very little about him, so I had no opinion. After watching the first few games, I was VERY concerned. I mean ..... Who tries to stop an already stopped clock? ...

| Coaching Changes|| re: What did Michigan do wrong with Rich Rod? - LJBurton on 12/4/14 at 3:15 pm|
50% no support, 50% not enough time given due to that lack of support. State of the program was so bad that the next guy was going to need a few years to get the right talent and depth back to where it needed to be. Rich Rod is a proven winner and has had success everywhere he has been absent Mich...

[quote]Won't be popular, but Tubbs is a decent coach. He's too old to hire at this point, though. I said Bobby P a few months ago and was practically run off the board.[/quote]
I think both Tubberville and Petrino would absolutely crush it at LSU, and I am quite convinced that either guy would ta...

Any AD worth his salt should always have a line or two in the water. You always need a short list of guys who you KNOW would take the job if the timing was right.
That said, I have no confidence that Alleva is worth his salt....

[quote]Your questions restate my position......maybe Rettig was a pain in the ass, punk, etc. Who knows, but there are reasons for the way a major college program develops that are not apparent to the untrained eye.

[quote]Miles' broken offensive philosophy solved
A capable QB who is a fit (i.e. pro style)[/quote]
So, why doesn't he recruit some pro-style QB's?
And, furthermore, why does he run a 4 Star Pro Style QB out of the program? Was Rettig not a fit?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: a few years ago, alot of people thought miles was a top 5 coach - LJBurton on 11/17/14 at 1:00 pm|
Never considered him top 5 in the SEC West, much less the Nation. We have won in spite of Miles, not because of him. ...

No to all but 10. No is my default on all Amendments just as it is on Tax Increases and Renewals. Government needs to be choked out. Enough new laws, enough amendments, enough with taking more and more of our money. ...
