The Quad has the Tigahs checking in at #7.
It’s standard fare to look at Miles and see a doofus, but his record grows more impressive each season.
… His 34-6 record stands as the finest three-year stretch in L.S.U. history, and the team’s three consecutive top five finishes also marks a program first. Some more numbers: L.S.U. is 15-5 against ranked teams under Miles (meaning the Tigers have played nearly seven ranked teams a season) and 7-3 against teams ranked in the top 10. One of college football’s best late-game decision makers – though some of his strategies may cause premature aging among the Tigers’ fans – Miles has led the Tigers to nine come-from-behind victories in the fourth quarter, including four in 2007…
That is nothing to mock, folks.
They’ve got LSU finishing 10-2 (losses to Georgia and Florida), which I think looks right. After all, that’s what LSU does under Miles, innit?
