Paul Finebaum Didn't Hold Back When Talking About Les Miles At Kansas
© Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum didn't hold back when sharing his thoughts on Kansas head coach Les Miles after the Jayhawks loss to Coastal Carolina, 38-23, on Saturday. Per the WJOX 94.5 FM radio show “The Roundtable”...
quote:

“I had a mutual friend of ours on, I think, Tim Brando the other day telling me what a good job Les Miles has done,” Finebaum said on the air. “I now just keep my mouth shut when somebody (that visits Kansas) and talks to Les. I saved my ‘Les Miles as a clown’ take for this show. I just don’t know how anybody can take Les Miles seriously.

“How many games, he’s played 13 games and he’s got two losses to Coastal Carolina? I mean, that’s what we saw in the last year or two at LSU. Now, it was a different level, but you know, I mean he ended up getting fired primarily because he lost to Wisconsin in an opener at Lambeau Field. That’s at least a legitimate loss but he lost because he was just so stubborn.”

“I don’t think Les Miles really regrets it, what I can’t understand is why he got the job in the first place,” Finebaum continued. “Jeff Long clearly was just going into the yellow pages of fired famous coaches with national championships.

“And secondly, I’m still trying to figure out why anybody who covers the game thinks this was going to have any result, other than what we’re seeing.”

He still said that Miles won the 2007 NC basically with Saban's players 3 years after Saban left. I guess that means Dickhead should give credit to Shula for Saban winning the 2007 title 3 years after Shula was fired.

I'm sure ole Les wouldn't hold back either if he had a radio show to analyze, scrutinize, and bad mouth senile horrible college football talk show hosts such as Ole Forkbaum! Les did the best he could do which was average at best while at LSU. We are lucky he won as many games as he did along with several SEC Championships, one National Championship, and playing for another.

We all know Les Miles has limitations but let's also not act like Kansas has been a successful program before Les arrived. It would take a coach well above their budget to turn that dumpster fire around.

The fact that Les won a title at LSU and competed for others is a testament to the quality of players LSU has access to. Great guy, but a very mediocre coach.

That beanie eyed lush got challenged on Twitter with Ryan Clark and Marcus Spears to say something about Saban and his “All Lives Matter” slip. Crickets other than spears tweeting what he said. NONE OF THEM SAID A WORD. Proves everything you need to know. They keep their fricking mouths closed for money. This isn’t about principle.

I hated miles in ‘08. Then became an apologist when I got used to his style. The truth is usually in the middle but thank frickin Jesus he’s not around any more

He’s Kansas’ problem now.

Finebaum is just a Bammer Homer. Everybody knows that Les Miles is a great football coach who would be hired again in five minutes, if Kansas decides to fire this gem of a Football Coach. J/K LOL

I’m very happy with the current state of LSU football, but that man gave 100% to LSU. He also continues to be an ambassador after being fired. He deserves a little respect.

With the exception of the BLM worship and the spineless admin cowering to them, Football is in good hands with O.

I don’t think he gave 100%. In fact, I think he was very lazy. Publicity stunts are great but they don’t win football games. He was never a master of the details. The lack of preparation showed it’s ugly head often.

Thank you Kansas for getting LSU off the hook with wasting more money on Les's buyout!

Les had his house for his wife and that apt. for babes. Did Finebaum have a presentable wife or daughter? Maybe Les gave one of the Finebaum women a proper stretching.

If Les responded by questioning why anyone would hire Finebaum, he also would have a valid opinion.

Agreed. They’re pitiful and Les is pitiful results are anything but shocking
