No he won't.

Scoring Offense – 110th. Team Passing Efficiency – 113th. First Downs – 99th. 3rd Down Conversion Pct – T-64th. 4th Down Conversions – T-123rd (0 for 2). Red Zone Offense – T-115th. Total Offense – 111th. Rushing Offense - 53rd (with 2, 5-star RB's). Passing Offense - 119th

There is absolutely no reason a team with that much talent should perform this miserably year after year. Les Miles out dated offensive philosophy is the reason they are losing. They'll probably lose at least 2 more this year.

He should have been fired last season. Les is done in Baton Rouge.

Re: Les Miles on the HOT SEAT?

It was coming. But I'm actually really stunned it came in-season. I didn't think LSU's athletic department had it in them after the way they muffed it last year.

All those people who thought the team was going to come out and storm the gates of the college football world, defiantly vindicating Les Miles... Now they maybe realize how silly they sounded. I thought this was one of the most talented LSU team's of all time, and still do. And yet, we're still 2-2. You can't make enough excuses for that.

Yes, players play the game. But to have THAT much talent consistently underachieving on the offensive side of the ball, year after year, speaks to an inability to develop players or put them in a system that fits their skill set. It's not a fluke after a decade.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Yes it was coming. With all the talent they've had they should've won 5 national championships. Orgeron is a good stop gap and has head coaching experience. They've been looking for a replacement since the loss to Wisconsin.

Not sure about that 5 national championships. They produce more NFL ready players and more skill position players but Alabama has had them nasty linemen on both sides of the ball that wins championships

Thats my opinion anyway

LSU's had the same thing, though. But the discipline hasn't been there. Les finally made a really good hire by bringing in Dave Aranda as defensive coordinator, and the D is much improved so far. Usually the defense has been good, though. But Aranda is an elite defensive mind. Yet we still have no offense, despite tons of talent.

I have no idea just how many championships LSU SHOULD have, but I can tell you that with an elite coach they should have been in serious contention almost every single year. In his 12 years here, there were only two such seasons. Then there were a handful of years where it looked like they were in the hunt only to blow it late in the year. But it was always enough to give the impression to some that Miles was an elite coach.

If he had fired Cameron, he might still have a job. All he had to do was find someone who could develop a quarterback.
