re: 18 of 22 starters of 2013 season opener are in the NFL - DIGGY
Understood. And to my point earlier I don't think you can consider his a better tenure going 5 yrs without a division title, much less a conference title. Waaaayyyy too long with the ability of this program. Good conversation and exchanges!! GEAUX TIGAHS!! ...

re: 18 of 22 starters of 2013 season opener are in the NFL - DIGGY
Just curious but in an earlier thread you said that if Miles didn't win the West next year it's time to move on. Given your defense of the "best tenure at LSU" and challenging other opinions for not celebrating 10 win seasons and such, what would be your grounds for dismissal with a 10-3 record and...

re: 18 of 22 starters of 2013 season opener are in the NFL - DIGGY
Teams in a conference are built to beat other teams within their conference. Also OU and Texas have a deeper history than LSU in CFB. We'll agree to disagree on the LSU tenure issue. I say they are very similar and you say Miles is head and shoulders more accomplished. For sake of argument what ...

re: 18 of 22 starters of 2013 season opener are in the NFL - DIGGY
I would hope so given his criteria as you mentioned. He has 1 NC and 3 NC game losses. But there are those 9 Conf Championships. Regardless of conference that is pretty impressive. But without those 3 NC game victories somehow he is left out of the Urban Meyer Nick Saban level discussion. Guess...

re: 18 of 22 starters of 2013 season opener are in the NFL - DIGGY
Not back tracking anything hoss!! Since you are so hung up on winning percentage and other participation trophy categories how about these: Saban was 1.000 in NC games and 1.000 in SEC Championship games. Miles is 0.500 and 0.667 in those respective games. I do focus on Championships because tha...

re: 18 of 22 starters of 2013 season opener are in the NFL - DIGGY
Please point out in my post where I said Saban had the "best tenure at LSU" as the other poster said about Miles!! My post was to compare the championships won in the timeframe each coach won them. To make the case for Miles the other poster is pointing to 10 win seasons and other participation tr...

re: 18 of 22 starters of 2013 season opener are in the NFL - DIGGY
Best tenure in LSU history? He has 1 NC, 1 NC game loss, 2 SEC championships, 1 SEC Championship game loss, and 2 West Championships in 11 completed seasons. Saban had 1 NC, 0 NC game losses, 2 SEC Championships, 0 SEC Championship game losses, and 2 West Championships in 5 completed seasons. Now...

re: Satisfied with mediocrity & no accountability - The Joe Alleva Story - DIGGY
When Les Miles was given his last contract revision Alleva said "it is not about winning Championships but being in the hunt for them", or something to that effect. You can argue that at any point in any teams season they are "in the hunt" for a Championship until they are not. So according to the...

re: LSU 3rd lowest attendance for Spring Game. What needs to be done? - DIGGY
Haven't you heard? BR is the only town with a major college football team that has other options on an early April day. People in Columbus OH don't have kids in baseball, birthday parties, spring football etc. People in Tuscaloosa AL don't like to fish or turkey hunt. There are no entertainment ...

re: My hat off to "The Hat" - DIGGY
Best tenure in LSU history? Didn't Dietzel, Saban, and Miles win a NC and 2 SEC Championships? And Dietzel did it in 6 yr and Saban in 5 while Miles has doubled the tenure but not the production? ...

re: The Hat - DIGGY
Not sure if the best but best in a couple years maybe. All the passing game hype will disappear if Gordon gets the 6th year. Miles going nowhere short of a losing record....

re: Asst. coach contracts - DIGGY
He made 1.5 this year. Had he and LSU not agreed to terms and neither party terminate employment, the contract would have extended another year at 1.5. In those terms he has a reduced salary. In addition his previous contract did not have the Miles clause, so in effect it was guaranteed and this ...

re: Miles on the recognized want to ameliorate LSU's passing aptitude - DIGGY
They have had plenty of film and time to study the two opponents passing games from the past few seasons that almost mirror our philosophy on offense, that being Ark and BAMA. I would say both have the "efficient" passing game we desire yet neither are true "spread offense" systems. Both have aver...

re: Aranda D philosophy question - DIGGY
Can't do more homework and study prep than D gurus like Carrol, Saban, Narduzzi, etc and they choose alternate ways of instilling and attacking offensive minded D with better talent level. Hope it translates well next year and you are right. Great input and appreciated!...
