You just beat me to it. I will now be following Twitter all day long.
Part of me is saddened cause Mile's heart was into LSU
Part of me is glad because Mile's head was not into the game
well next time we blame the fanbase for unrealistic expectations, we know why.
There is "a very good possibility" that the LSU Tigers will buy out Les Miles' contract, a high-ranking source involved in the decision regarding the coach's future told ESPN on Monday.
"In Louisiana, we expect national championships and we're not in it," the source said, adding that meetings are occurring Monday that could lead to a quick resolution.
A failure to beat Alabama and what is believed to be an underachieving, vanilla offense are major factors, according to the source.
Boosters have already agreed to pay the $15 million to $20 million needed to buy out Miles and his staff, the source said.
Miles has won a national championship, two SEC championships and averaged 10 wins per season while producing 64 draft choices in 10 seasons with the Tigers.
"If we were competing for a national championship this year, well then we wouldn't be having this conversation," the source said.
say what? we expect NCs every year? who the hell really believes that.
The source is probably someone from the BoS, would that be a good guess?
Joe Schad isn't close to the program. I'd listen to a guy like Jim Klienpeter.
It sucks that it will end this way. He deserves a better exit. Last time we ran off a coach for not being able to beat Bama the program sucked for 20 years. After two successful, hires the odds are against three in a row.
That's bad Tirk. Not winning national championships is not a reason to fire a coach. Not beating Alabama and Arkansas and Ole Miss and running out the most predictable offense since I played my daughter in Madden is.
I suspect his source is.
All I can say now is, if Miles is in fact fired today, LSU best have a better than good idea who replaces him. The wheels better be very much in motion. This whole thing has the makings of massive embarrassment for the university on the national stage.
