LSU head coach Les Miles was asked during his post-practice press conference on Wednesday whether or not Saturday's game against Texas A&M will be his last at LSU?

Here is what he said...
quote:

"I have no idea, Miles said. "I would love to think there's another 11 years."


Here are some more tidbits from Miles' press conference regarding the job speculation:

The meltdown will be epic when Jimbo says no.

My source in Tallahassee said Jimbo will only leave for Bama.

Miles has maintained the program at the level that Saban left it. He has continued to get the top talent come through the program and has gotten the results that a decent coach should get with that level of talent. However, Miles has been paid like a great coach. A great coach would have gotten better results with the talent. Think about it this way, LSU's 2011 team was being considered as one of the best college teams ever. Do you think a Les Miles coached 2011 Bama Team would beat a Nick Saban coached 2011 LSU Team in the National Championship game in our own backyard? I think not. I will always appreciate the run that Miles has had. I also will never forget the opportunities that have been squandered. I wish Miles all the best.

One more year..at least. Produce better on both sides of the ball, or that's it. It pains me to watch the offensive attack (about 6 different plays), but this young team is still very good. If Les can get the team ready to play, then he deserves the benefit of the doubt...

Hopefully this IS his last game, enough is enough.

By hiring Jimbo, the program would be making an immediate upgrade and actually give the program a chance to defeat Alabama.

If comparing the football programs of Nebraska and Texas to LSU then compare them. Nebraska does not have near the high school football talent that Louisiana has. Texas, has to recruit against Texas A&M, Baylor, TCU and a few other Texas programs on the rise. Les Miles is not going to change because he's hard headed, stubborn, closed minded. The defensive coordinator and special teams coach were both terrible hires. The last 5 seasons were at best mediocre and at times a disaster. It is time for a change, they, LSU, probably have the replacement already. I would not be surprised if Jimbo Fisher is the new coach.

"whining,entitled fanbase."

Only people whining right now are the ones that want to keep him. The word "entitled" is so overused and every time I see it I think, "winning shouldn't be important."

For those who want to keep him-other than his past accomplishments and nice guy image, why? What makes you think he'll turn it around and compete for championships again? Does that matter?

Another 11 years. OMG, I would just quit watching LSU if this poor overmatched coach was to be there 11 more years, surrounded by the brilliant coaching staff he has surrounded himself with. Just the thought dulls my appetite for the NFL games today. Another 11 years ? PoorOleLess may not have another 11 days left.

He's done great things for LSU but lately production is slipping. This is a business. Time to go in a new direction. Those of you saying we'll go down the toilet when he leaves are just being emotional and not thinking objectively. Saban left a loaded team and LSU hired an unproven 28-21 coach that no one thought could maintain that level of success-and look what happened. Now all of a sudden we'e doomed to fail if we do it again? Get real. All the resources are still there. LSU will be fine. You're just sad because "he's a nice guy." You'll get over it.

Lsu fans need to stop comparing us to Alabama. We're not bama. National championship isn't a real expectation every year.

This shitshow is disgusting. For all the flaws, Miles has been a hell of a representative for LSU. He deserves much, much better than this. It makes LSU look bad, especially this whining, entitled fanbase. I'm not saying he should get another contract extension or even have another year, but the fanbase definitely owes him a debt of gratitude. He has brought in some incredible talent, and sure we would have liked some more success against a certain team, but he has at least kept us on the edge of our seats. lol Hell, he has even made Sundays more interesting. We have Tigers to watch almost every Sunday on TV.

Whether he has more time at LSU or not, at least show the man the respect he deserves.

yeah let's fire one of the best coaches in LSU's history. What a bunch of Rantards.
If anything you should hold to to Les for dear life. The program will go down the toilet if he is fired.

I will always remember when Nebraska was a powerhouse who thought it was a good idea to fire their head coach fresh off a 10 win season...anyone hear of Nebraska anymore. Buh bye LSU.
