Buga is not LF's likeness.
It is something that his family has called him for a very long time. There are interviews and articles which explain specifically: BUGA means "real"... as in genuine / not phony.
It does not mean Leonard.
If Leonard grew up with his family saying: "Keepin' it Rea...

All of the incoming OCs inherited a senior QB their first year.
Crowton came in for the 2007 season and had senior Matt Flynn. (Flynn should have been followed with Perrilloux, but instead was followed by Hatch, who was not experienced, and the freshmen JJ/JL... understandable drop off)

[quote]you can't cover forever! No pass rush created by the D line, so we're forced to bring artificial pressure in the form of blitzes. If they don't get there, the secondary is in 1 on 1 coverage. It's that simple. Pass defense starts with the Defensive line. [/quote]
I agree. LSU has put very ...

Thoughtful post. I don't know enough to say your observations are right or wrong.
As far as strategy goes, I think both the offense and defense have become overly conservative.
Offensively, the team has been unbalanced in favor of the run (something like 70% run plays / 30% pass). It's an obv...

I understand that there are people that get off on the endorphin rush that comes with enduring painful experiences...

Most matter is empty space. If an atom were seen at the scale of a football stadium, the nucleus would be something tiny... don't remember exactly, but maybe something like a ping pong ball sitting in the middle of the stadium, while the electrons whirl about the edge of the stadium.

It really seems like Miles strategy is to play football like Muhammed Ali boxes... letting himself get cornered, playing rope-a-dope. The other team keeps lashing out and seems to be scoring, but very rarely can they finish LSU under Miles; most teams get frustrated, run out of steam, then LSU knock...

Someday, someone might publish the Les Miles lexicon and lift the veil for us all. Until then we can only sift through his droppings and search for meaning.
Sometimes Miles and the fanbase sort of remind me of Colonel Kurtz and the Dennis Hopper character in Apocalypse now:

Miles utilizes more misdirection in his press conferences than he does in the run game, from syntax to word choice... to pronunciation.
I didn't hear it, but wonder if he may have been trying to say "diffuse" instead of "defuse". I can see them sounding similar coming from him.
Diffuse would m...

I agree that Day very deliberately stomped on the LSU players. It was, as you say, so obvious that the SEC had no choice but to suspend him.
But I don't think him admitting it would've made much difference... he might've ended up being suspended for longer if he admitted it. And if Day curbs the ...
