Les has only 2 losing conf records in 12 years as a head coach. LSU in 2008 and his first year at Oky state(also his only overall losing record).
Pretty good run for a guy everyone says can't coach.
Shouldn't expect a coach come into a situation and have a winning record the first year (although some do, it's the circumstances). 2008 was a period when Miles experienced temporary insanity in hiring co-defensive coordinators (Malveto-Mallory and Peveto). No one was in charge of the D that year. BTW- agree that Miles has an excellent overall record, but especially the last 8 years.
Les' record will match up against anyone's. Only one coach in the country that competes evenly with him, and that's Saban. Hope he's here for the next seven years (his contract length), and I don't look forward to the day when LSU will have to replace him.
This + his overall record at LSU is enough for me to see there aren't a lot of guys out there better than him.
The QB situation also didnt help us that year
Proud to support everything Louisiana
