    Miles isn't going anywhere. He has won 80% of games (including SEC and National Champs). His recruiting classes are usually highly regarded (coming class looks strong). He hired Cameron and Chavis. Chavis has been the crown jewel since he has been here.

    We lost a ton of defensive starters this season. Is that a good enough reason to explain a rebuilding year? Maybe.

    Firing Miles or Chavis would not be received well at this juncture. Who would come barking up their trees? Maybe nobody. But we're in a relationship with these guys until things bottom out or at least stagnate.

    Also remember hires don't always go smooth because they got a bunch of cooks in that kitchen.

    A coach who has won 80% of his games, especially in the SEC, isn't going anywhere.

    Most of us just want him to remove his head from his azz. The firing topic keeps coming from the opposite side of the fence.

    I understand he is winning and he is not going anywhere. I understand Alleva is a jackass and can't be trusted. Also understand that a significant down turn should be had before kicking Leslie to the curb.

    But what I don't understand is why things would have to hit rock bottom or become stagnant before it is justifiable. As a passionate fan, why would I want to see LSU wait until recruiting has suffered substantially and the tigers are trudging through .500 seasons? You can pay 1/2 a million to a coach who loses 3-4 games a season. I hope the fans that feel that way also realize that those things don't happen overnight. I would like LSU to still have something for the next coach in line to work with when Les decides to hang it up, instead of having to rebuild it from the ground up again.

    Early this year I was feeling very 2011. Now I feel very 2009. If program isn't back on track in 2 years then I will want him gone. And I will be justified.

    I hear ya but large sums of money generally make folks reluctant to make rash decisions, and actually reluctant to make any change until things are beyond obvious that a change is required.

    I actually wouldn't be surprised if Miles gets a raise or extension after this season.

    Isn't his contact automatically extended if he win a minimum of eight games per year?
