    This isnt my opinion nor do I have one, nor am I one of the we must fire Les Miles types. He is our coach.

    But I found this nugget in a ESPN article
    Interesting debate.
    "and current Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart will guide LSU back to the promised land near the end of the decade."

    Gazing into college football's crystal ball and predicting the next decade - ESPN

    And this Nugget about Michigan returning to promise
    "The Wolverines will return to national prominence -- under current LSU coach Les Miles"

    i wouldnt be comfortable with LSU picking an relatively inexperience DC from a Saban team. kinda like letting kragthorpe be HC.

    Agreed. I truly believe Saban is the true defensive genius on his teams. Sure Muschamp has done well, but Saban on his teams is the Defensive coordinator make no mistake. So to think that Smart is the defensive guru on Bama's team I think isn't accurate. I am sure he is a good coach Saban is the one that makes that defense go.

    Smart is more of a student. He knows how to get it done though.
