Former LSU head coach has made his pick for the LSU-Auburn game and it's an obvious one...

Miles, who will be in Tiger Stadium for Saturday's game, told his daughter Smacker that he is picking LSU to win during a recent episode of the "Les Is More" podcast.
quote:

Smacker Miles: "Auburn - LSU?"

Les Miles: "I'm buying the Tigers at home-"

Smacker: "There's two Tigers."

Les: "Huh?"

Smacker: "Two Tigers in that game."

Les: "Yeah, but I'm not buying those other Tigers. Those other Tigers don't count. I'm taking the real Tigers. I'm talking about the Purple and Gold. The helmets that are recognized across the country as the Tigers- LSU Tigers.

Les Miles was always a great coach and guy but his downfall was that he was just too loyal. It's ok to be loyal but you have to know when to cut ties and recognize that your job can't be tied to your loyalty for people. You have to always be loyal to the university/program first. That's who pays you and that's who your trying to bring a national championship. If he would have gotten rid of Cam, and hired an OC who was a great young QB teacher, and implemented a style that made it easier for young QBs then he would likely still be here. If he was willing to change up his tendencies after every game, even in his previous offense he would likely be here. Some small changes and he would have won more games, and would still be here. We love you Les but just don't understand some of the calls that were made over the years. Overall though it was a great time Les! Go Tigers!

He'll be coaching in Knoxville soon and you will be able to predict every play, including the kick off out of bounds.

So if we hire him as AD, can we just use the buyout money to be his salary? Technically we don’t have to pay the money he makes from any new job we gets, so I say we just roll it over into his AD salary.

Oh, and Smacker HATES O. Ripped into him about the Kickers. Les had to take up for former assistant

LSU fans, don't forget we are the "Fighting Tigers". Auburn can't claim that name among their other nicknames. That's all Les had to say. I miss Les too but don't feel too sorry for him. He's making more money than most of us will ever see, unless we get to look inside a Brinks armored truck.
