    And he does; however, let's look at those "11 Win Seasons" for a second.
    With some bowl games left to play, there are currently SIXTEEN teams who will have an 11 win season.

    34 Teams will have 9 wins or better. So what's the point here? Are we really THAT separated from the rest just because we have 10 or 11 win seasons? Obviously, we're not.

    For those who will say, "But we play in the SEC", South Carolina is looking to have it's second 11 win season in a row...would you like to trade places? Point being, 10 or 11 wins is a great thing but not nearly what is was at one time. Just look at the teams below with 9 or more wins. 9 wins used to be a good season; now, it's not given a second look. Hell, Vanderbilt has 9 wins this season.


    Teams with 11 win seasons (Some have 12)
    Kent St.
    Utah St.
    San Jose St.
    Boise St.
    Tulsa
    Oregon
    Stanford
    Northern Illinois
    Ohio St.
    Notre Dame
    Alabama
    Florida
    Georgia
    Kansas St.
    Florida St.
    Clemson

    Teams with 10 win season
    LSU
    Texas A&M
    Louisville
    Cincinati
    Oklahoma
    UCF
    Nebraska
    South Carolina (Looks like bowl game will make their 11th)


    Teams with 9 win season
    Texas
    Rutgers
    Northwestern (Looks like bowl game will make their 10th)
    Ohio
    Ball St.
    Toledo
    San Diego St.
    Fresno St.
    Oregon St.
    UCLA

    Little of which is now relevant at this point, thanks in large part to Joe Alleva. If there comes a time in the next 7 years where we think about canning Les, even if there's a guaranteed parallel hire or upgrade it would place us in a very difficult financial position to take the plunge.

    Last I heard LSU beat South Carolina do you want to trade places with them?

    Why doesn't 11 wins mean what it did "At one time"? LSU did not & could not achieve 11 wins more than 2 times in 110+ seasons.

    Miles has 5 - 11+ win seasons & 2 NC appearances.

    The other side of the coin you're flipping is number of Losses per season.

    Miles has 21 losses in 106 games. Averages 2.6 losses per season, good ol Saban has 3.2 losses peer season, in a shorter length of time. Do you really even want to know how many losses Cholly Mac averaged per season?

    But you want to roll the dice betting you won't come up with another Archer/Hallman/DiNardo trio, geaux for it.

    Hell, send T-John/Paul/Luke.....somebody up to LSU sports information, get a petition going. I'm sure many in Louisiana would sign it.

    Money won't be the thing to stop us, there's plenty of money. To me the problem lies with, if not Miles, then who? Maybe Pellini? Fisher? Fisher has an 11 win season too. :D

    LaSalleAve when in doubt, mumble

    He does win, can't deny it, but if its Alabama or Sisterfuck State Arkansas, it always seems like LSU is playing an NFL caliber team. We make our own future NFL players look silly and make players who won't sniff the NFL look like all pros. It doesn't have to be this hard in every fucking game.

    Cause now we play 13 or 14 games compared to only 9 or 10.


    Cause then we played 9 or 10 games compared to 13 or 14.


    Exactly my point. Even though we beat them, they will end up with more wins...11 wins like the ones that alluded us for 110 seasons. Does that make South Carolina ANYTHING?

    Here's good 'ol Cholly Mac early 70's record which many consider his best run.

    1970 9-3 12 games (SEC Champs)
    1971 9-3 - 12 games
    1972 9-2-1 - 12 games
    1973 9-3 - 12 games


    LSU plays currently 13 games, 1 game was added. Any additional game is earned. (Bama being the exception.)

    You raise another point that strenghtens my numbers. Games ended in a tie then. If that was still the case Miles wouldn't have nearly the same record.

    Correct, he would not have been saddled, by his own fricking "Fanbase" calling him a 2 loss NC winner. we won't even talk about how sad & pathetic that in itself is.

    Oh I've never heard that said from our fans- I may have in jest but not seriously. I can easily defend that in saying we had the best two loss team resume- and it wasn't even close.

    I like the "no loss in regulation" better though. :D
