Being at the Coach Miles luncheon yesterday things got heated pretty quick. Coach Miles took the podium and told the press he would only answer questions gearing towards the up and coming football game with Texas AM, and related football questions about Ole Miss. Well, the first 7 questions would you know would be about the conditions of his job, man I tell you even reporters and journalists don’t listen….LOL. The man said he would only field questions about football, if you go listen to the first video it details all the questions.
There have been quite a few interviews already about Coach Miles, from former players and players who never played for Coach Miles.
“Coach Miles is our guy,” guard Will Clapp said, “We love him.”
“He’s our coach,” wide receiver Malachi Dupre said, We stand behind him.”
Paying $15 million to fire Les Miles would be insane and could backfire on LSU. Jon Solomon @JonSolomonCBS
Brandon Sprague, @BrandonSprague
110-32 in 11 seasons, the number 1 recruiting class in 2016 and LSU wants Les Miles gone? Go home Louisiana State, you’re drunk.
If you would’ve bet me a month ago that Mark Richt would survive and Les Miles would be out…I’d be a broke man right now. #LSU #Dawgs
Danny Kanell @dannykanell
It will never cease to amaze me how fickle fan bases are. A month ago LSU was #2 and Les Miles was a genius for a fake FG vs UF. Smh.

A joke LES MILES can flat out coach / a couple of L’s & all of sudden he can’t coach / RIDICULOUS @LSUfball http://www.thescore.com/ncaaf/news/890400 …
Felipe Franks top prospect for LSU just decommitment to LSU saying he has given the process alot of thought
and it is only best for me to make my decomminment public, now Florida is in the drivers seat accourding to a ESPN Report. LSU had the no.1 recruiting class coming in for next year but they will drop now.
Hester went on The Paul Finebaum Show Monday to give his opinion on the rumors that Miles was going to get fired. He told Finebaum that although the last two years haven’t been great, Miles’ track record speaks for itself.
“I’m still a little baffled at the whole situation,” Hester said. “I know the last two years haven’t really gone like LSU fans or anybody associated with the program has really wanted. But I think 102 (110)-32 record in the toughest division and conference in football, it kind of speaks for itself.”
Hester may have summed up LSU’s biggest problem when deciding whether to part ways with Miles. Fans and insiders may not enjoy how things are going right now, but the grass might not be greener on the other side.
“If you find a better man for the job, I don’t know his name right now,” Hester said.
