    I was just wondering. I don't want to turn this into a Miles bashing thread, I like the guy. But lets say Bertman was considering Spurrier. Would you have preferred him? Can you imagine what he'd look like with an LSU visor on? I just dunno. I'm not sure I'd want to be THAT team. He brings a certain stigma down upon his teams.

    No, IMO.

    No need to speculate on this now...Les has one successful year under his belt, with the 40-3 thrashing of UM as an exclamation point!

    At this point, I think I prefer Miles. Spurrier is on the short track to retirement, whereas Miles has said he wants to stay @ LSU to make a career. I'd like that kind of stability in our program. It's what we hoped for with Saban, but didn't get to enjoy.

    At the time, I would have wanted Spurrier, but that is just because of willful ignorance towards Miles on my part

    Now that I know what he is about, I don't mind having him here at all

    I would have considered Spurrier a strong contender simply because I had seen his play in the SEC for years. While we loved to hate him, he had a track record of collegiate success which is paramount, especially for tiger fans. My take on Miles at the time was we were having to replace our gold medal winner with a bronze medal winner with great potential. I hadn't seen any OSU games because they weren't heavily televised in this area. I am glad I was wrong!

    Acually Spurrier was in the mix when Archer was hired and he wanted the job. He held it against LSU that we didn't hire him. Spurrier was already @ Florida when D-Nardo was hired.

    hell yea i would want SOS over Miles. SOS is a top 5 coach of all time and has proven to be a winner over and over again. If he was coach I think we would have won it all last year.
