Ok....thanks for pointing out the obvious for us Les.  

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

Where does he come up with this stuff? Pure comedy gold. Too bad he isn't coaching TTUN - I can only begin to imagine the joys of trolling his pressers each week.

I'm starting to wonder if Les is doing more with grass than just EATING it.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

At least you didn't post the one of Les having sex with it. That would have been gross too funny.

Just going to say I know there's the perfect LSUFreek gif for that.

Never disappoints.

We all knew Les likes some good green, but who would have pegged him as a comedian?
 
Yummy!

As history teacher Les Miles is a great football coach.

God, I wish he was coaching at Michigan so much.

He's a moron but he's a good football coach. He's much better than Hoke.

No, the talent he gets covers up how poor of a coach he is.

He's won a national title and played for another... and he's a "poor coach"? Interesting.

Poor coach?
Here is the list of coaches that have won BCS titles:
Nick Saban
Gene Chizek
Urban Meyer
Les Miles
Mack Brown
Jim Tressel
Pete Carroll (vacated)
Larry Coker
Bob Stoops
Bobby Bowden
Phillip Fulmer
It isn't a very long list.

Gene Chizik really coached up his team.

I take it you don't watch LSU football very much.

I agree mostly with you Seabass.  He won a national title in a weird year where a 2 loss team went to the NCG. 
He makes more questionable calls than almost any other big time coach, but it works for him mostly.  His players do love him, and he can recruit with the best of them.  That is honestly 70% of the battle.
 
Oh, and he hires great coordinators

I watch a lot of LSU football, as they're my "SEC team" or whatever and I like how they play. I'm not going to debate this any more, but it's comical you think Les Miles is a "poor coach." His win percentage, especially in the SEC is ridiculous. If he's poor, then that makes 98% of coaches in FBS piss-poor, and basically Urban Meyer and Nick Saban as the only ones who aren't.

Like I said before. The talent covers up his poor coaching ability. Let's take a look at Les Miles, Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. The most interesting thing about these three coaches is two of them were pretty average before arriving in the SEC which we all know is pretty lax on the rules and everyone seems to always look the other way when they do catch them. Do you know which two? It's easy to win and look like a great coach when you are allowed to bring in top tier talent by any means necessary.

Uhm, isn't recruiting part of being an FBS coach? You're acting as if the talent at LSU just rains down from the sky, magically.

Nothing says you can't be a good recruiter and a bad coach. They aren't wholly inseparable.

and played for another

That's debatable.

Good point about St. Partrick's Day though.

Think about Miles and then remember that Coach Hayes taught history....

After watching this and the Hatter's nail and hammer rant, I think his doc might need to adjust his meds. That said, he is the real deal as a coach and recruiter.
