    I get the sense that the win over Florida - not just the victory itself, but the way we won, with Miles seemingly outsmarting Meyer on some big decisions and Miles' ballsiness in going for it and converting 5/5 on 4th downs -has caused a lot of folks who have been skeptical about him despite the past two years of excellent results to ... lose their skepticism.

    Me? I have a confession to make: I still think that he's probably our Larry Coker.

    I'm a pretty skeptical fan - after the Miami win I started thinking Miles might be a good coach. Since we started out on fire this season, I'm really beginning to suspect that he might be a good coach. I'll let you know my final conclusion at the end of the season.

    I think I'm more impressed with what he's done that with what Coker did - Coker started really hot and flamed out. Miles started pretty hot and has warmed gradually. There are many indications that Miles is a good coach. I didn't feel great about all the gutsy calls he made against Florida, but I'm really beginning to think he could be the real deal, possibly for a long time depending on how the Michigan situation turns out. Still, I'm interested in seeing how this season plays out.

    But I don't think he'll ever be a Coker. At worst, I think he could be a Fulmer or Carr.

    Fair question: To see how many others still feel that way. Up til last week, i always felt like there were a lot of us. But i've been feeling very lonely the last few days, so wanted to take the temperature, so to speak.

    Have you ever considered that maybe you're wrong?

    EDIT: I don't want to come off sounding too harsh, especially since you are a newcomer and it's not necessarily easy to be in that position on this forum. Is there anything in particular that you'd like to use as evidence for your point?
