FootballScoop Staff spent the day on LSU's campus. The environment for a night game is far better; but today was pretty special.
What Les and his staff have done this season is really remarkable. The talent they lost from last season...the issues / suspensions (starting QB) that arose weeks before the season began...Krags' health issues forcing a changing of responsibilities with Stud stepping up and taking over the play-calling...the Oregon game to start the season...then they had to sit some of their best players mid-season...another quarterback change late in the season...going into Tuscaloosa and coming out victorious...and then stomping out the challenge from a good Arkansas team today...oh and did we mention that a large number of his play-makers on both sides of the ball are young?
This past off-season Les hired two coaches (Steve Kragthorpe and Thomas McGaughey). A+ on both counts.
If anyone votes for anybody other that Les Miles for Coach of the Year, they need to have their head checked.
Long live the Hat!
