As a longtime out-of-state LSU football fan, I was appalled and disgusted by the way the LSU Athletic Department and the administration handled the future of Coach Miles. He deserves much better. The process was so secretive, it was the laughing stock of college football. Who’s to blame here, the AD, the president or the boosters or a combination?

Not every school has a chance to perform well every season, and think about it: Very few schools will ever even play for a national championship. College coaches are under so much pressure to be the absolute best that it’s reached a ridiculous level. Les should coach as long as he wants to, because we love him.
