re: Say goodbye to your non-permanent cross-division opponent this year! - bfniii
i would like to add myself to the list of fans who is internally outraged that I won't get to see lsu play at Georgia again until 2025. it's baffling to think that professional adults made this format....

food for thought if refgate doesn't happen in '06, it's not unreasonable to think lsu beats auburn. lsu might have been in the sec championship game and was playing better than anyone at the end of the season. auburn plays 2010 with an ineligible player. it's not miles' fault that the ncaa and...

[quote]Saban doesn't make mistakes[/quote]all things considered, saban is the only coach in America doing a better job than miles. that's the only criticism of miles I can find that's warranted. saban has gotten the better of miles, and not by much. so, if you want to complain about that, go ahead. ...

here's a point I've been making for years. all fans criticize the playcalling of the staff. what makes your complaints more legitimate than theirs? since that is equal among the fanbases, what team is more successful? in other words, you complain that miles made a mistake. the opponent fans ca...

so, after 9 pages, we've listed 2.5 legitimate examples of miles making a playcalling mistake. is that it, in 9 years of coaching? all of that together doesn't equal saban not covering the kick against auburn for the sec championship game appearance and yes, I think bama would have beaten mizzou ...

[quote]coaches do make mistakes, which shows sometimes criticism is warranted.[/quote]my point is that fans criticizing playcalling is just dumb because they don't consider all the factors that coaches do and they don't compare success between coaches. it's myopia. is criticism of miles warranted...

it's easy to say that miles makes mistakes therefore, criticisms are valid but that is beside the point. the point is how many mistakes does miles make compared to his rivals? that's what I mean when I say fans criticize in a vacuum. fans criticize play calls but don't look at the entire game or ack...
