Was it his fault that Arkansas reached out and allegedly offered him a huge contract? There are people on the board that seem as though they are mad at CLM for Arkansas' proposition. Sorry, I don't get it.
If, again a big if considering Sonny's tidbits, he was offered, it just means that someone else wanted our coach. Is that a bad thing? Last I checked, if someone wants your coach, your coach is probably doing something right.
Just my two cents...
"You can learn more character on the two-yard line than anywhere else in life." - Former LSU Coach and AD Paul Dietzel
The ones who don't like him in the first place are digging for character flaws.
"That was Death Valley. It's where opponent's dreams come to die." - Miles
Good post. And many of them are the same detractors who ask, "If Miles is so great, why aren't other teams coming after him?" in the offseason. Never mind that this is the third time in five years that a historically good, very wealthy program has tried to hire him away (that we know of).
Is it ok to feel like Coach Miles has been here for a long while now and it might be nice, might even be thrilling, to have a new Skipper?
Are we in need of a new skipper? Answers please. I'll wait.
I don't know if this is a response to the OP or a new issue/question, but I'll answer what I believe is your question to the board...
Fair enough. I don't necessarily agree with the position but, fair enough.
Is it worth the risk if we have a proven head coach already?
Yep, the question is fair enough.
Thrilling, maybe. If Les moves on - it means a transition and that isn't cheap when considering the start-up costs and losses of a new venture. The new guy has be larger than life and he'll get more pay than Miles. The current staff to include guys like Chavis and Wilson are likely to move on. The recruits for 2013 thru 2014 will need to be recruited again. So, it means the electricty is disconnected for awhile. That means things in the frig spoil.
Your former coach stays in the SEC West, knows the landscape from Oklahoma to Texas to Louisiana to Florida and retains those valuable contacts.
That's a troublesome scenario. I wouldn't discount it or Les.
If (big If) he did go to Arkansas, would it be alright then?
Still no. Would much rather have Miles (and Frank and Chavis and Raymond and Henry and McGaughy) than a big fat question mark going into the most important recruiting time of the year.
