    In typical Louisiana fashion (I am familiar), Miles is judged not by the 61 victories, but the 17 losses. The victories are not judged even by the result but the margin and if you didn't win by a lot, you might as well have lost.

    If a player is better than expected (Jacob Hester), he was just over looked by recruiting services. But if he is not yet performing at the level of his initial hype (Russell Shepard), then it's because Miles and crew can't evaluate or develop talent.

    If a player doesn't execute, it is because Miles didn't coach him up. On the other hand, when players do execute, it's because they were just great to begin with.

    When Miles won in his initial years, it was because he inherited Nick Saban's players. Yet this year, without a single Saban recruit and with a still struggling offense, LSU traverses one of the most difficult schedules in the country and it’s because LSU recruits talent that wins despite him. LSU beat more ranked teams [this year] than any other top-10 team.

    Is your head spinning yet?

    Mine too, but we still haven't addressed the question of Miles' value as a coach. What does he bring to the table?

    According to Les Miles, "The full measure of success is to graduate and win championships."

    Since 2005, when Miles took over the program, LSU's Football team has in increased its APR—Academic Progress Rate, a measure the NCAA uses in determining a school's compliance with academic regulations—from 923 to 960 in 2009, which ranks in the top four in the SEC.

    Under his leadership, LSU's recruiting has finished only once outside of the top 10, finishing No. 11 in 2005, when Miles was hired with less than a month to go before National Signing Day.

    LSU is currently projected to finish in the top five for the fourth time in Miles' six years in Baton Rouge.

    Miles also runs, what is by all accounts, one of the cleanest programs in the increasingly ill-reputed toughest conference in the country.

    First time around I typed fical. Then I changed it to Fecal on my way to fickle. And decided fecal was better. :lol:

    The really interesting thing about the article is that LSU has turned into a cash cow because of football. That being said, if Les is truly off the table for CU, you can see why if you follow the money; LSU probably would not let him go.
