For all of the UM fans who are writing off Les Miles because of the OTL story, you should at least take 5 minutes of your time to do your own homework. Below is a link to a thread on TigerDroppings. It discusses Miles' character. Put simply, his players love him and nearly everyone describes him as honest. They are split on his coaching abilities but not his character.
Also, I have spent much of the past week reading threads on their site. This general outline of Miles -- great guy but maybe just a mediocre game day coach -- runs through many threads.
