To those who are defending miles, are you aware of what's going on during the ole miss game? Lsu is getting destroyed. You may have the ability to accept this, but I think I speak for a large portion of the lsu fan base when I say say that this is not acceptable. Keep being complacent, and you'll keep getting mediocre results.

Bill quit. Couldn't beat frigging Nebraska (Osborne) in the Sugar Bowl twice.
Fans bitched. He left to become AD at UF.

Why did we get rid of Bill Arnsparger anyway? I was five when he was fired.

You do realize that Booger never played for Saban, right? He was recruited and played for DiNardo.

McFarland, Spears, and other former players from the early 2000's have made repeated statements that their loyalty is to Saban first and not LSU. That doesn't mean he's necessarily wrong here, but he and Finebaum often make sensationalist statments like this just to grab headlines and play to the public.

Booger, like alot of the "Fire Miles" crew, is too young to have lived through the thin years at LSU with any sense of awareness.

He was 2 when Charlie Mac was fired (137-59, 7) cuz he couldn't beat The Bear...People thought it was time for a change then, and enter the lean years: 1980 - 2000. With the exception of Arnsparger's (26-8, 2) 2 seasons from 84-86, over the remaining 18 years we went 99-91, 4.
...And that includes Booger's years with Dinardo.

What would Charlie Mac have continued to do, had we not booted him for losing to a coaching legend? Got a little greedy and entitled, didn't we?

Sound familiar?

The Matt Flynns,the Brandon Allens, the Aaron Murrays - those are the kinds of QBs we need to recruit - pocket QBs with mobility upside. We used to win the tough games with those kind of QBs. Look at who Saban has won his NCs with at Bama. McElroy, McCarron... Heck, they even turned Blake Sims into that style. We have NEVER excelled with dual-threat QBs (we never knew what Perrilloux could have done, but looking at it now, Miles would have probably ruined him too). We didn't win those tough games with Mett either - and his knees suffered from lacking that mobility upside. Granted, his arm was amazing and having OBJ and Landry helped. Please do not equate the number of 10-game winning seasons with excellence.

The "we just need to get a QB" excuse is pretty old. Miles is ultimately the one responsible for recruiting and developing said "good QB" and he has failed miserably. No, it is not about losing only 2 games, it is going 8-6 in the last two seasons in the SEC. Please save any other "we are young" or "we're going to be loaded next year" excuses as well, as they have been played out. Not saying it happens, but if that decision is made to move on, it is certainly justified.

I say bs to Booger. Miles has lost 2 damn games and one of those was to Bama on the road. I know many of yall are going to live with your head in the sand but LSU has a real problem at QB. Harris was fine while we had LF running for 200+ per game. However, as soon as he was forced to step up and make the throws in a game where he had to be a QB, he failed. It wasnt all the OLs fault. The problem on the OL is that once a team does not respect your
QB they come at you and don't worry about coverage. Harris is inaccurate on short and intermediate throws. Hell he missed a wide open receiver badly on the first LSU offensive play of the Arkansas game. His passes over the middle were late and high or behind the receiver almost every time. The yardage LSU generated on offense was more a tribute to the receivers than Harris making throws. Then many of the yards were in mop up time when the game was already decided. LSU has no reliable QB and Harris doesn't make many plays with his feet which also limits the offense. An engine can't run without a spark plug. We a QB who can deliver.

I don't know if I want Les gone or not. I just wish we could adjust to the changing times and run more of a wide open offense, not a spread necessarily, but more aggressive with more up-tempo at times. Where are all of the short quick passes and bubble screens? Mix those in with the power running of LF and defenses would have to respect our ability to do more on offense, and be less one dimensional. If Les is let go, I would vote for Tom Herman from Houston, a young offensive minded coach. Just think how good LSU could be with all of that talent that we have and an offensive scheme that allows athletes to be athletes!!!

Stop letting Miles have "recruiting leverage" to keep his job. If we can all just breathe and consent to give up some recruits this year and take a shot at our recruiting ranking, we'll no longer have to let Les hold dangle those recruits over our head, holding us hostage. Some times you gotta take a step back to take a leap forward.

He's talking about his buyout.

Are you stupid or something?
