I bumped the post below from the Thread in regards to Miles getting fired and Tickets sales dropping etc. I really appreciate this post and it makes perfect sense. "I don't. They surely wouldn't plummet. Young guys don't like to hear it, but it wasn't all that long ago that LSU suffered six losing seasons in a row. LOSING seasons like 3-8 and 4-7. 8 wins beats the crap out of that. But the fans did not flee. Grumble, bitch, and moan, sure. But disappear . . . nope. Don't forget that Ole Miss dropped to being nobody for 30 years, Alabama had a ton of 7 and 8 win seasons this past decade, Florida stumbled between Spurrier and Mayer. Nobody goes to the top and stays there, not even Texas and USC who hire the best players and coaches in the country year-in and year-out. Teams are going to have peaks and valleys in this decade, especially in the highly competitive SEC. LSU could have lots worse problems than a win-waveform that peaks at national championships and troughs at 8 wins. Florida and Bama have suffered 7-win seasons in the last decade, but not LSU." I do not post or respond much on here, rather just read. I understand LSU is not where we all want them to be right now, each and every one of us has our own solution to the problems, we all agree on most of the same things, but one thing I'll never agree on is turning my back on my team even in the thickest of times. I was raised to bleed purple & gold and will die the same way. I just want to see more focus on the positives, and Improvements we have made, what we have learned from past mistakes, and hopefully made this spring and up coming summer. As well as taking those feelings of defeat in all 3 games last season that feeling of disgust we all as fans had in our stomach, all knowing…..that had 1 thing gone differently, had Charles Scott been able to stick in on 3rd & Goal against Florida, Had the ref not missed that horrible call on Riley Cooper’s Touchdown & UF…or… Had JJ & CS not gotten hurt against BAMA after we controlled the game the first 3 quarters, & had PP been in on the TD screen pass to Julio Jones, or Had the Ref Over Turned the obvious Interception, and I don’t even feel like I need to comment on the Ole Miss game. We lost all 3 of those games by 10 points or less and WERE BY NO MEANS BLOWN OUT, DOMINATED, OR EVEN CONTROLLED FOR THAT MATTER. THEY WERE HEART BREAKERS, AND WE NEED TO TAKE THAT FUEL AND RUN WITH IT THIS YEAR!!!! I think we are forgetting how close we came to being a team with the 99th ranked Offense in the NCAA playing in the National Championship Game last season. Cause had a few balls bounced our way, It COULD/WOULD HAVE HAPPENED!! AND Trust me, I face reality, I was there at the bar getting laughed at last season when JJ spiked that ball against Ole Miss, I acknowledge all the issues we are having on offense/defense/coaching…… why do we continue to run to the short side of the field with all that speed……. Why do we continue to call plays from the sideline when JJ cant get the signals right, yet when we huddle up we have success moving the football……….Why is our D so tough on goal line stands but gets drove down the field between the 30's…Why do play down the competition and have tight games against Miss St. & La. Tech, but Look BCS Bound in 3 of 4 quarters against the #1 & #2 Teams in the nation – BOTH Of which were coming off bye weeks to prepare for us. I believe the coaching staff sees this too. I believe that Miles and company sat on a very talented group of recruits last season, let his seniors play out, and I BELIEVE we will see the light at the end of that tunnel. It may not be this season, maybe next. I truly in the bottom of my heart/gut feel that if nothing else this season, we at least BEAT BAMA AT HOME. They may be our only Championship this year, because we have an extremely tough schedule ahead of us. I do not believe, that right now, there is a single team in College Football who would be looking forward to this upcoming LSU schedule, and would not bet on a single team winning out all 12 games!! Give me one team??
