Les has been great at LSU, a remarkable record. Now he has to win a few more SEC titles.
Not easy when there are five ranked teams in the SEC West Division. The best three teams in the country could be in the SECW and two of them will never reach the SECCG or the playoffs. It is a serious dog-eat-dog situation like exists nowhere else in the NCAA. Year-in and year-out.
Makes ya' mean . . .
I agree Red, toughest division in NCAA history thereby making it extremely hard to make the SEC championship game. So I don't expect to win it very often but I do believe we should be in the top two more often than not and win the SECW every few years. Of course then we'd still have to win the championship game every other time too.
Never mind the fact Joe Pa only coached 101 games in his first ten years, or Bryant 109...
It's a great accomplishment by Miles; no doubt. It rings a little hollow when you start bringing in names of coaches who started coaching four and five decades ago.
That is really all you needed to say. Bryant and Paterno had their accomplishments and Les has his own. You don't have to rain on Les' parade to be proud of Bryant.
Point is the OP brought up guys like Paterno who only coached 101 games in his first ten years. Why put Miles up for accomplishing something they didn't when reality says they couldn't?
Reality says that they didn't. Sour grapes says that they couldn't.
Don't you ever give up?
Joe Pa played a horrendously easy schedule back on the day, although I'll admit he had good teams. But they didn't start playing good schedule until later on his tenure.
Bear cheated his ass off.
Surely, you jest.
