Les Miles reportedly to Michigan within the next 48 hours. Radio host put his professionalism on the line in reporting this.
Late Late Night Open Thread
To start with?
Bo Pelini the leading candidate to replace him
To be fair to the host, he didnt put his professionalism on the line, he said he feels that it is going to happen, based on sources, what have you. He did say he thought it was 8 or 9 out of 10.
He also offered to buy the caller a Po' Boy if he was wrong.
Po Boy -- dressed? CUz I might take that action.
Does anyone know what Dandy Don has to say about this situation?
Not Magnus's spot. He's too scary.
I got your back. Hack has your back. Magnus just wasn't a good recruiter for blogging talent. No hard feeling though.
After you already recruited him.
He never showed up to accept the job. You have been faithfully been keeping MGoBoard alive in this chaotic time. Magnus has shown he doesn't care about us.
I think. And much more of a life than me, I'm pretty sure.
M-Wolverine will be replacing Magnus as HC of the MGoBlog all-star coaching staff. Magnus will be relieved of his duties due to his lack of understanding for MGoBlog culture. Farewell Magnus, you will do well on another blog. Welcome aboard M-Wolverine. Everybody please fully support him. We are all in for M-Wolverine.
His posting scheme doesn't fit the blog.
His avatar has been stolen and used more effectively by other posters.
He talks funny.
I heard he banged a chick over at Eleven Warriors.
He shredded Shredder's MSPaints.
And who stole my avatar?
You know, some guy, with like, a post.
Alright, I don't remember, but THEY UNDERSTOOD THE RIVALRIES!
It's the rivalries... ;-)
I think I got a lot of them. It seems every once in a while a wave of negs hits me as someone scrolls through my past posts.
If I remember correctly, the guy who stole your avatar goes by the name of "Silley Ace" with some numbers after it.
Ha, I should mess him up by switching the color of it. If I recall, the guy who designed it had like 3 versions or so. One breathed fire I think.
Because I hear Magnus is interviewing for the HC job...
I fully support M-Wolverine. It is hard to show full support from Bolivia. There is apparently a daily post limit for those who have been sent to Bolivia.

I believe Les is gone. I have never been one to claim I have sources, but I happen to know a guy who works for Michigan State's athletic department that is a former sports writer who covered LSU and then later worked in University of Michigan's athletic department. I got confirmation from him that the deal is done and will be announced on Tuesday officially. Les is gone.
In a Sparty source for Michigan breaking news.
1.) "know a guy"
2.) "who works for Michigan State's athletic department"
3.) "is a former sports writer"
4.) "who covered LSU"
5.) "worked in Michigan's athletic department"
Er, that doesn't scream reliability. Everything from 1-4 indicates unreliability. Number 5 is surely nothing at this point, given that we've had a change in AD and that he currently works at MSU's AD.
10 posts a minute it's impossible to gather anything from this anymore...
I don't know what I feel anymore. I'm just numb. I'll be under a rock. Someone let me know when it's all over!
/yeah right I can't stay away
we'll have les send ya a letter. ;-)
Take the dog for a walk.
anyone in alabama complaining about nick saban's age? I dont think so
dude, who cares how old he is when you have hair that great!
he could give GERG a run for his money, so long as he's got a stuffed beaver to compete.
Fans take turns guarding his statue in front of Bryant Denny. I hate that i live in Tuscaloosa.
Aaaaaaahhh it's raining chicken wings and spicy cajun food!
Is asking about coaches coming with Miles, does anyone know about recruits that might follow?
If any recruits were to follow I would like to see the following:
1. La'el Collins - #1 ranked OT
2. Kenny Hilliard - 6'0" 218lb RB. Reminds me of Brandon Minor.
3. Anthony Johnson - #1 ranked DT.
4. Trai Turner - IIRC he had early interest in Michigan.
5. Jeremy Hill - Another big back, don't know if we have space for him.
"He said, 'They have rumors going around about (me) going to Michigan, but it's not true,'" Jefferson said. "'It's nonsense.' He said hasn't spoken to anybody, anything about Michigan. We're going to stick with that and get ready for next year."
LSU running back Stevan Ridley concurred with Jefferson.
"He told us this is his football team and this is where he's going to be," Ridley said. "We respect our coach, and this is our coach for right now, and we're going to enjoy him as long as we can. Coach Miles is a Tiger. This is his group of guys, and he's proud of us. I think this is where he will be next year."
To the front page.
Miles said he has discussed the rumors with his players. "I told them that I had not had any conversations with Michigan to this point and, if I did, I would communicate with them very effectively," Miles said.
We've got different takes on that conversation.
Yeah, so let's believe the Lousiana's media's version of his discussion, because these guys are not at all sharpening their knives for Les Miles like they were the Detroit Free Press.
If he comes it means he lied to his players. This doesn't sit well with me. What a disaster this has become.
He can say he talked to Michigan, had a change of heart, and decided to go to his alma mater. Plus, we do not know exactly what he told his players.
period. end of story. and people thought RR was slimy. what a frickin joke.
he didnt talk to michigan.
his agent did.
There are now several conflicting reports that some players never heard him say anything about Michigan, so... Who knows.
Also note the "for right now" in one of the quotes.
Here is the TigerDroppings thread where the LSU faithful seem to think he did not say anything definitive and qualified whatever he said with "until further notice":
