Mark my words....you fire Les Miles, and this program will sink into the abyss.

If Les is let go, this program will tank. It will be a true return to the 1990s, and will mark the return of true mediocrity to the LSU football program.

Can people honestly not stop and actually process what is happening at Texas, or Southern Cal? These are historic programs that are steeped with prestige and loaded with resources (yes, more than LSU).

And look at them. Both of those programs have been abysmal for years. If it can happen at those schools, it can certainly happen at LSU.

Oh, but LSU will lure in a top coach, right? Everyone wants to come here, right? Let me throw out a few names for you - Clancy Pendergast, Bob Shoop, Kirby Smart. Ring any bells? Yeah, these were the top DCs that were being thrown around this board this time last year. Because what DC wouldn't want to come to LSU, right? All the talent, the strong defensive tradition, etc. In fact, one of the local news reporters even published an article stating that LSU was in talks with Kirby Smart.

The next day, LSU hired Keven Steele. The best it could do.

So, don't fool yourselves into thinking that elite coaches will line up to come to LSU - they won't. And no, Jimbo isn't coming to LSU. But hey, I can be reasonable for a second. Would Jimbo coming to LSU justify the firing of Les Miles? Absolutely. Jimbo is one of the top coaches in the game at the moment. He's won a national championship, develops quarterbacks, is a brilliant tactician, and recruits at an elite level. But he's NOT coming to LSU. He'll use the situation to get a nice raise from FSU, and that will be the end of that.

So, any hire other than Jimbo would be a complete disaster for LSU. And since Jimbo isn't coming, let me tell you how this is going to play out.

Miles will be ruthlessly let go. The fans will cheer, thinking they're about to hire the next Saban and ascend into college football greatness. The LSU football program will enter the cold month of December with no coach, and a #1 ranked recruiting class that will slowly dissolve as players start committing elsewhere. The inept LSU Board and Alleva will take weeks to try and find someone after Jimbo decides to stay at Florida State. It will be a bloodbath trying to find any elite coach, as Southern Cal, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Miami, and others will be ravenous in their search for the best available. The weeks will go by, and by the end of December, LSU will finally settle on a coach. It won't be a big name. It won't please the fans. People will be up in arms screaming, "We fired Miles for ______???"

By then, Miles will be long gone. December will almost be over, and there will be about 10 or so recruits still committed to LSU. The #1 class will be all but gone, and LSU will become stuck with a new coach that excites no one, but was the "best" they could get considering the circumstances. And, worst of all, they're in somewhat of a financial bind as they still owe money for the next 6+ years to Miles.

That is what's going to happen, and you can take it to the bank. Miles is a massive asset and a top coach, but unfortunately, most of you won't realize that until it's too late.

If Les is a massive asset and a top coach, how do explain our failures since 1-9-12?

Thanks nostradumbass!! That can happen at any school but doesn't mean it will. We can certainly lure a good coach here with everything we have to offer. Why are some of our fans so damn scared to make a change when it's obvious one is needed. Most of those schools suffered because they waited too long to make a change.
