Former LSU coach Les Miles was dead wrong about Ja'Marr Chase.

According to Chase, Miles told him he couldn’t play receiver when he was coming out of high school and that he wanted him to play cornerback at LSU...

Yet more evidence of how Miles squandered the talent right under his nose.

LM only saw one game in his mind, if a player didn't fit, he couldn't change.

You guys don't understand the genius of Les. He was using the George Costanza philosphy of life: "If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right."

Chase could have played DB and WR at the same time and been all SEC at both

Les was probably correct in that he couldn't play receiver for him. hard to be a receiver when you don't throw the ball

Then why did Miles recruit so many WRs? That is mismanagement of the roster in itself.

Les Miles once thought Jefferson was a QB, actually he thought it for 4 years

Are we sure Chase would not have been an elite DB?

Miles’ strong point was obviously recruiting QBs.

There is no doubt that if he was forced to, Chase would have excelled at CB also. Certain coaches seem to put more value on CB than WR, I think looking back that Mo Claibourne would have been a better WR than he was at CB. I think Miles and Patrick Peterson talked him into playing CB. But with Miles vision of offense, CB might have been the better choice.
