As I watched the end of the LSU-Tennessee game Saturday, I was thinking to myself either Les Miles is the luckiest SOB alive or the dumbest coach ever; personally, I think it’s a little of both.
If anyone watched Dancing with the Stars last year, you remember watching Kate Gosselin and how she performed. Watching her dance was painful to watch because A) she couldn’t dance, and B) she had little to no emotion.
Each week she was allowed to stay on, was more painful for the audience to watch, and all of us wondered, when is she going to be voted off?
The same with Les Miles—how long are LSU officials going to continue to let Miles coach? Watching Miles coach is painful to watch even if you aren't an LSU fan. Like Gosselin, Miles looks inept at times, as if he has no clue about what the hell is going on.
Forget the Derek Dooley angle on this for a minute, the question LSU fans are probably wondering, like the rest of us, is: How was UT in the game in the first place?
This is an under man team going against a much more talented team and yet, they were 13 men away from upsetting the No. 10 team in the country.
Oh, but that’s not the best part of this story; the best part was Miles actually changing quarterbacks AGAIN at the end of the game. Jordan Jefferson was the same guy (for those of you who have forgotten) who lost the Ole Miss game last year because of poor clock management.
Jefferson fumbled the snap at the end of this game and almost lost it for the Tigers AGAIN. What was Miles thinking? And then his postgame comments made no sense either.
I truly feel sorry for LSU fans because with Miles, you never know how all of this will end. Will it end next week at Florida with an upset Gator team who just got humiliated by Alabama Saturday?
Will it end with another clock malfunction? Or will it end when Nick Saban and Alabama come to town in November? Wouldn’t it be ironic if Saban were the one who closed the books on Miles? What a bitter pill to swallow if you are an LSU fan.
One thing is certain—like Kate Gosselin, Les Miles' tenure at LSU will be coming to an end eventually; for LSU fans, the end is not coming quickly enough.
