    Yes second best if that. He has amassed great talent then squandered opportunities several times including leads in SEC & NC games. He’s a very good coach but not a champion IMO. He certainly has time to prove me wrong but he needs to grow. I see him in the Charley Mac and Shug Jordan mold close but not there.

    Cholly Mac winning percentage 69.8% Kirby Smart winning percentage 79.2%. He had good 'ol boy Cholly in the rear view by getting to the Natuobal Championship & overall winning percentage.

    Shug Jordan ( former Auburn Foosball coach) was 41-28 at Georgia in Basketball. He died 3 days before Bo Rein in 1980.

    Keeping Cholly Mac 18 long years is on LSU. He killed any chance of catching Alabama in our lifetime.

    Now hold on - you can’t blame Mac for the Bama gap . The Gumps were hiring dog crap in the 90’s Shula Dubose and Roll Tide !Price
    What f ‘d us with Gumps is The Evil Dwarf dumped us and we brought in Happy in my Pants Elmer

    One Team One Podcast reporting that Gilbert wanted $400k to come back to LSU. Get the popcorn ready.

    Cholly Mac...18 years at LSU. 14 losses to Alabama. 9 consecutive losses at one point.

    Miles list 7 including the unscheduled NC game vs Bama. Miles beat Alabama 5 times. No udder LSU Football coach ever achieved that. Good Time Cholly beat Alab as many 2 times in 18 years.

    So... 2-14 ( Good Time Cholly) vs Bama & 5-7 (Dirty Les Miles) vs Bama.

    To be even more clear, 14 of LSU''s losses against Bama are Cholly Mac's fault. 7 LSU losses against Bama are Miles fault.

    Your conclusion is Cholly Mac should not be held responsible for his massive failure against Bama & that somehow, it's Miles' fault. Don't remember Good Time playing for any National Championships either. Don't remember Miles losing 9 consecutive times to Bama either.

    The "Evil Dwarf " lost badly to Bama's Franny while coaching at LSU for goodness sake.

    He did, however, hit a 5 game losing streak. Let's look at the data.

    Longest losing streaks to Bama.
    Miles: 5 (NCG (2012) - 2015)
    Orgeron: 3 (2016-2018)
    DiNardo: 2 (twice, 1995-1996, 1998-1999)
    Saban: 1 (2002)

    Don't see Cholly McClendon's 9 year losing streak to Bama on your list. Might want to tighten up that "data".

    BTW, Orgeron has lost to Bama 5 times as an SEC coach, 4 at LSU so far..

    This is the data set you chose. Miles hit 5 straight loses, Orgeron hit 3 (which reset after the 2019 victory and currently sits at one).

    If you want to polish the turd known as Les Miles, you really need to pick a different data set to talk about. Yeah, he didn't hit a 9 game losing streak to Bama, but he's #2 with a five game losing streak. Not exactly something I'd parade around as some sort of victory.
