There Wasn't THIS Much Blowback Against Miles!!


Lord have mercy! This is all-comsuming.

It was never this bad when people were grousing about Miles and his shortcomings.

Pity....nothing but an exercise in futility at this point.

Why would it have been this bad for Miles? At least he had a history of success here. O has nothing but failure.

Yes it was and maybe worse.

Miles never had the luxury of excuses and hypocrisy from the fanbase that Edward Orgeron enjoys.

O isn't in the same league as Coach Miles (at this point).

In your mind maybe....but your memory is definitely clouded.

Or perhaps yours is...that’s an equal possibility.

It's true.
I have seen posts here, and talked to people IRL who STILL hate Les Miles exactly because he :
1. Came out on the Monday night in September of 2005 with a Britney Spears head set.
2. Had the audacity to be caught on camera looking for his wife in the seating area, and asking "Where's my wife?"
3. For pumping his fist in excitement as the teams left the field for halftime.

His teams played in two national championship games, and won it once. Lost the other one likely because of his shortcomings, but that 2005-1/9/12 run was unprecedented, and even after 1/9/12 while disappointing, was still pretty good.

But Tiger fans have never forgotten or forgiven that first home game, and it defies logic, it borders on all-out misery and hatred for no. good. reason.

Yes, it was time by the end of 2015 what with the promises, and the loyalty. Many good coaches have lost jobs due to such loyalty, Ed Orgeron will be another, but Les Miles had this fault, Jim Mora had it, and even Bum Phillips had it. It's really sad to say that loyalty can be a fault in football.

But the blind hatred of Les Miles based on pre-game and one half of football in 2005...yes, he had blowback. At least we know that 0 sucks, and maybe deserves it. Looking back, Les Miles didn't.

O has not failed here. He has not fed some peoples delusional expectations, but he has not failed. It’s time to end the vendetta and let what it will be, become whatever it is.

Miles won a National Championship and played for another. He earned some slack.

Let’s face it. We are at the same point now as we were with Miles. A shitty offense with a good defense. Got our arse beat by every team in the West the last few years with Miles with the exception of A&M. We finished 9-4, about average for Miles the last few years. Now the problem is with the recent hires do we get worse? That remains to be seen.

Who would've ever thought that we'd want Miles back. Shows you how bad Orgeron really is.

He's on his way. His only other stop as HC can only be categorized as colossal failure.

I’ve never heard these 3 things.

Average IQ, inability to develop talent, putting his friends above the university, and being shockingly clueless in-game are his legacies.

Miles started out strong and won a championship. Orgeron was the worst coach in Ole Miss history starting out. No shite there wasn't as much blowback.

Miles came within an inch on a FG attempt in Ames of being the coach of the greatest team in college football history. No contest.

IIRC there was more than this just from you.

I railed Miles but generally let it go after the season and resumed the next season.
This goes beyond that.
