Here are some tidbits from Les Miles' weekly radio show on Wednesday night, which included questions about offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, quarterback Brandon Harris, and LSU's struggling offense.

The catch 22 comment really stuck out for me. Perhaps our play calling isn't just stubbornness. Hear me out, it'd be one thing if miles was intentionally holding the offense back if Harris could throw a pass within 5 ft of his target. We know that isn't the case. Miles, as a coach, has a major weakness and that is he cannot for the life of him develop a QB. He wants to let the offense go mettsiah again, but he's stuck between letting Harris throw and maybe Move the chains (huge gamble) or run the ball where at least he knows the chances of gaining any positive yardage is a lot higher (even if it's minuscule). Maybe etling can execute consistently enough to convince miles to open up the offense. If I were in his position and my choices were hope Harris can make a play OR hope fournette can make a play, I'm going with buga 9.8 times out of 10

He sounds like a politician dancing around the ?s. This is gonna get ugly fast if LSU doesn't turn it around.

It was quite frustrating watching Les dance around tough questions that came from fans since the media will not ask them. If you were still up in the air about Les understanding LSU's problems, and his willingness to correct them, your mind should have been made up last night. RIP Les.

Blah, blah, blah, run the ball, blah, blah, blah, quarterback getting better, blah, blah, blah, young players, blah, blah, blah, players want competition, blah, blah, blah, must work to be better, blah, blah, blah, awfully productive. "I'm Les Miles, everything I say makes no sense, but its been working for years, why change now.

Do we have enough WRs to do a 4 WR set? How about 5 star WR Tryrone Johnson? Oh, I forgot Miles promised to go to North Carolina and Oklahoma State to study their passing games. He must have enjoyed studying Oklahoma sets cause Tryrone decided to transfer there. What irony!

" but we're awfully productive in traditional sets." Hmmmm....

This alone proves a complete lack of reality. LSU hasn't been consistently productive offensively in a decade.

I mean, he admits that people are upset with the offense and things could be better then he says that he doesn't want to change anything because it's very productive. You can't make this shite up. It's a direct contradiction of itself, and it makes no sense.

Why does he always think that he is right and sooooooooo many are wrong? I don't get it! I love the guy but I hate his decisions. It's time to go!

Welcome to this year, the same as last year.

Go ahead and get your down vote ready, but love him or hate him (or both), he's our coach. Do you think he WANTS to lose? Do you think the players WANT to lose? All we can do is cheer for them and support them. Everyone needs to vent, but leaving games early, booing, criticizing, etc... does NOTHING to help. When the time comes for coach to move on, then be supportive of the new coach. In the meantime, support them while they're here.

It seem to me that since Saban left we've drifted down a little every year. Just about every year. The last two years seem to have been the worst. He's not going to change ! ! !

I know Les gets 9 wins a season, but with all the talent LSU pulls, anybody could do that

With the way the sec is, the scheduling of these neutral games against decent opponents, 10 wins every year isn't easy. LSU plays bama, UF and Auburn every year. LSU has also played a team that finished in the top 2 every year except for 2005. Not many teams run that gauntlet and win 8 games every year. In fact, I think LSU is the only team to do that. So no, not anyone can win 9 games.

Expect great things from Cam? WTF haven't we seen great things from him already... I'll tell you why. He's maxed out. Done. We've seen his full potential and it doesnt work. Buddy system entrenched heavily at LSU. Thankfully Lie Miles doesnt have any defensive buddies or we'd see that again.

Only question I'm interested in hearing him answer is "Why won't you resign?" But I'm guessing he has fifteen million reasons not to. We're about to see just how much he cares about LSU!

He's just out of things to say. He takes what he said 5 years ago, rearranges the words and says the same thing again.

It isn't that hard. 8 in the box = someone can get open for a short 4-5 yard completion. Problem is, our passing game cant manage to throw anything shorter than 40 yards.
