Former LSU star and current SEC Network Analyst Marcus Spears was on The Paul Finebaum Show Monday and said it's time for Tigers to make a change at head coach.

Spears was calling for Les Miles' job after LSU's 16-14 loss to unranked Wisconsin in the season opener this past Saturday. Per Saturday Down South:
quote:

“More than anything, it might be time for a change at LSU,” Spears said. “I’m calling it. I know a lot of people say, ‘Don’t get caught up on the one-game scenario.’ The issue for LSU is that with the ending of last season and how tumultuous that was, and then you go into (an) offseason and all the talk being about what are you going to do offensively to showcase these guys on the field. And nothing changed in the first game of the season.”

When Finebaum pressed Spears about potentially overreacting to just one game, he said: “It’s not one game. I made that mistake and said, ‘It’s one game,’ after I saw the loss. But then I think back to what this issue was. The issue can’t be the same from last year. … It’s time for a new coach.”

This was the game to PROVE that there was change. There wasn't. Harris has not improved, the O-line has not improved, our punting was pathetic and the play calling was the exact play calling we have seen for way too long. So much talent and truly poor coaching and preparation.

Tiger fans are exhausted after 10 years of watching underproduction and inefficient development of talent. The outcome of games still undecided in the last minute when they should have been coasting with a win and developing second teamers (esp QBs) in the 4th quarter has left Tiger fans with an inability to continue to support this coach. If they don't change, they can have my tickets. BTW, THIS IS NOT A ONE GAME REACTION!

Marcus Spears played for LSU as well as the NFL. He bleeds purple and Gold. I think he knows what he's talking about.

He's definitely not overreacting. It's been the same issue's time and time again. If I was Alleva I would've fired him Kiffin style. As soon as he touched down on the air strip

All these idiots from other fanbases just can't believe that we would fire miles after all he's done here, and unfortunately that perception played a huge role in keeping him here. frick what other people think, this is about LSU.

Marcus Spears is spot on with his analysis. He love LSU and only wants what is best for the program. Should have been done last year but definitely needs to be done if we start off 2-3 which I unfortunately believe will be our record after losses to Auburn and Florida.

How the hell you know he "loves" LSU? He wants attention, gets his ratings up.

Totally agree. Spot on. Les teams are never ready. Over 10 years of this uninspiring lack of discipline football.

Not saying I don't agree with Marcus, but remember the Oregon opener.

Those people he responded to are not very in touch with LSU football

It's so easy for outsiders to say "one game overreaction " because they don't watch all the games. If they did they'd know it's the same shite game in and game out.

Lsu has lost 4 out of the last 5 games they've played in, with this "offensive scheme". So it is not just one game like every one is saying.

4 of 6 if you want to be accurate. That's still not good.

I was on the Les train, now I agree with Spears. The "O" with all of those weapons scored a grand total of 7 points.

Spears is spot on Les can't get it done. Dinosaur offense. National sports media laugh at LSU. Time to move on.

Spears never shoots a line of BS- he says what he feels. But when he's fed up, that says something about the current state of affairs.
