Is the problem Crowton or is it Miles?

    Can some informed posters discuss what is the root cause of our nationally-advertized problem?

    From what I gather happened in 2H of the notorious Mon TN OT game (from an assistant coach), Miles called the strategy, and many O & D plays. Result: having got Ainge out of the game, we then made 2nd rate Clausen look like a Heisman candidate, and throttled the offence.

    Seems to me the chaos starts when Miles inserts himself in the situation, as he admitted at Ole Miss.

    He's not involved in the game like most coaches. You see Dooley on timeouts? He's coaching, interacting with his players. Miles...he's got hands on hips, pussy-footin around looking up, standing alone- unless a ref comes by.

    Hey, man, he's probably thinking about his "Raishing Caneshshshs."

    But really, he looked pretty excited when he saw they were getting a free play there at the end.

    Honestly, who cares? They both have to go as do all the coaches on O. The D has earned their money.

    At this point, I think it's both. I think some things are obviously on GC (i.e., total lack of QB development). Other things are on CLM...like, when it's obvious that your OC makes QBs regress rather than get better, do something like, OH I DON'T KNOW, fire the OC or at least hire a QB coach. OR, when it's obvious that your O staff has serious issues with end-of-game clock management, you TAKE CONTROL of the situation and correct the mother f'ing problem. Or when it's obvious that...

    Oh, freak it, you understand.

    I think GC is a below-average OC...and I don't think CLM is up to the task of taking over and correcting his mistakes at this point.

    If this is informed analysis, I guess the question wasn't worth asking.

    I truly think that Crowton was at fault there. For several things, pulling JL, not having 2 plays ready just in case we did not get in.

    However, The buck stops with Les.
