re: Jimbo and Muschamp NOT "done"....yet - Martin Blank
You're a gentleman and a scholar, sir. Your presence in the world of celebrity blogging is sorely missed. As for the issue of a hypothetical Miles termination date from another poster, I think it's important to note that not every negotiating tactic need actually be acted upon. It need only be ...

re: Jimbo and Muschamp NOT "done"....yet - Martin Blank
To actually fire him 1/1/16 would not be feasible. But when George Bass starts the bidding at "pay Miles $15 million," the first counter by LSU would be "fine, we'll let you twist in the wind for three weeks while the media crushes your legacy." He'd actually be gone immediately, but termination dat...

re: Jimbo and Muschamp NOT "done"....yet - Martin Blank
One of many reasons "money isn't an issue" is that the amount paid to Les will probably be closer to $7.5 million than it is $15 million. LSU can play super hardball and not date his termination til 1/1/16 if they want. That reduces the buyout to $12.9 million right there, so that's the ceiling on L...

re: What's taking Michigan so long? - Martin Blank
You are confusing what LSU owes Miles if he is fired (liquidated damages) with what Miles owes LSU if he leaves on his own (the "buyout"). Miles has 4 years left on his deal IIRC. According to the last one USAToday had on their site, if fired LSU would owe Les his remaining salary, paid in monthl...

re: AT&T U-Verse - Martin Blank
Appreciate the clarification, RLH. You're a gentleman and a scholar. And, I hope, right about Cam. He's about the perfect OC candidate for the way Miles operates both on field and off. Thanks again for all of your insight. ...

re: AT&T U-Verse - Martin Blank
[quote]quote: The upper 80s % is based on [b]will he accept the job. [/b][/quote] This is the part that confused me. So I'm wondering if it's a true offer that Cam is going to mull over, or one of those deals where it's a formality, and Cam is merely waiting for the "offer" so he can immediately ...

re: AT&T U-Verse - Martin Blank
I thought as much, and don't blame you. I wouldn't want to grill the poor guy at a family deal either. I think a lot of people get confused about what it means for a coach to "have his hand in the offense." Maybe he's a little more heavy handed than other coaches, but they all do things like "ta...

re: AT&T U-Verse - Martin Blank
Not to doubt your story, because I sure as hell don't have any sources. But one thing LSU has fixed since Crowton left is all of the presnap issues and delays of game. That isn't nearly as common as it had been. It doesn't seem like there would be enough time for Stud to call an entire play ( wh...

re: LSU's next OC - Martin Blank
Do you "think" that Stud already has something else lined up? Or do you "think" Stud has already agreed to stay as OL coach? Is there any chance that Stud could throw a monkey wrench into this deal, if Miles can't find a landing spot for him?...

re: LSU's next OC - Martin Blank
That makes sense. John Harbaugh was basically a career ST coach when the Ravens gave him the HC job. So I doubt he told Cameron very much, other than very broad strokes like when to take the air out of the ball, when to throw a little more, etc. I doubt he had much, if any input into the Monday to S...

[quote] If Ensminger is no longer TE coach, Adam Henry becomes WR/TE coach.[/quote] Seems like this makes way more sense. IIRC, Henry was a TE coach in the NFL anyway. And with DeSean Smith and Jacory Washington coming in as more finesse/hybrid TE's anyway, seems like having the same guy over bot...

re: LSU's next OC - Martin Blank
What do you guys "think" is going to happen to Stud in this scenario? Do you "think" he has a job lined up that's contingent on Cam coming into the fold? Also, does anyone "think" Cam would bring anyone with him as position coaches, either at OL or QB coach? ...
