Les Miles to Kansas? Hokay, if you’re a blogger, I guess. And good for him, if it’s really what he wants (or, more likely, all he can get now). But a 65-year old guy taking over a program with a severe roster problem doesn’t strike me as a recipe for success.
Top that off with the reality that Jeff Long’s track record for hiring coaches at Arkansas wasn’t exactly stunningly successful. Petrino was given too much space, crashed (literally) and burned, John L. Smith was a joke of a replacement and Bielema was one of those hires that looked much better on paper than in reality.
Still, the bar is so low at Kansas, it won’t take much for everyone to start patting Long and Miles on the back. Just follow Mr. Conventional Wisdom’s tweets.
