If Saban were to use his magical powers to get him, does anyone else think Les could be gone, or at least on the hot seat? I mean Fournette is the next Trent Richardson and he's right in their backyard, and LSU didn't sign a back last recruiting class specifically so he'll be the automatic starter in a year or two.
I don't think losing a recruit like Fournette would cost him his job. His pride for sure but overall LSU is going to recruit well and they have a good stable of RBs already.

Les just sighned a new long term contract.
Would much rather have Cameron Robinson.
i don't know, i really think this would be a HUGE blow if he went to Bama. If arch-rival and 3 straight national champion (hopefully) Alabama comes in their backyard and steals their best recruit in years... he also blew the game against Bama this year, without his onside kick and a few other poor decisions that I remember him making I don't think we win that game. oh and 21-0 happened.
I don't know, i guess im bias but i just think he's a horrible coach and i get the feeling that many LSU fans don't like him very much, could be way off but that my opinion
I thought the same thing but I recently hung out with some influential LSU supporters and they really do love the guy. Apparently he also does a lot of work in the community and is well received with the boosters etc. that matter. With that said, Miles isn't going anywhere for a long time. As long as he can keep them as a top 10 type of team he can have a Mike Brown type tenure there. It'll take a few subpar seasons to get him fired at this point unless one of them is an Auburn 2012 type season - then all bets are off.
Jeremy Hill is one of the best backs in his class - after TJ Yeldon. I like him more than Todd Gurley, who's very impressive in his own right.

If they have a rocky season, say 7-5 or 8-4, and don't capitalize on an incredible year of in-state talent, then I think the leash gets really tight. LSU fans were not excited about the extension/raise he got.
Les Miles is the perfect crazy coach for LSU. He fits perfect with those nutty people down there. He would have to have 3 losing seasons in row before they fired him.
umm no. very naive thought and to say he is the next Richardson is very foolish as well.
Agreed! I would love to have another top RB but this statement is extremely premature. Not to mention that I am much too
excited about our recent class of rb's to even think about someone else. Just glad we have CNS to think about these things and always recruiting the future.
The Dynasty is Here!
