Tacopants is in gaseous form, right?
Les Miles wants his son to play at Michigan (2015 QB)
Maybe Les is worried about his kid's education. Recently I was at a cooking demonstration in New Orleans. The chef - a former NFL player - commented during the demo that he hadn't gone to college, he'd gone to LSU.
“I would love to see him at Michigan,” Miles said of his son, who wants to play football and baseball in college. “The first place that I took him to tour was Michigan, and he fell in love with the place. He said, ‘Dad, I know why you went here.’”
I will say this - that last sentence there is something I would love to hear from my kids if I took them on a tour of the Michigan campus as a teenager (rather than a 7 year-old wondering when we can sit down) at some point.
So much hatred for Les on this board. That's fine, he'll keep winning championships and/or winning 10+ per year while we bask in 31-14 shellackings in the esteemed Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.
its comical that people hate both Miles and Harbaugh, on this board.
I don't get the hatred. We would be in better shape on the football field if Les got his shot as the coach of Michigan after Carr. Imagine what Could of been.
I was just going to say something like this. I know, for whatever reasons, people are anti-Miles but I would bet that we'd be winning this whole time if were him instead of RR. I'd also be willing to bet that all the ethics, quirkiness, etc. that everyone brings up would go away if we were winning 10 games every year.
Hoke can win 8 games per year he will be in good shape here. I don't expect a coaching change for quite sometime. Only way would be if Hoke did not reach .500 this season.
I love Harbaugh. Do i wish he didnt say what he said? Yep. But that was a dig at Carr who spurned him good. And look at our program now. Imagine had Carr hired Harbaugh and not Loeffler as qb coach....thered have been zero falloff. In fact wed have risen.
This is an established fact.
The guy plays like Johnny but doesn't have the same tools as him. He does not look bad though.
how he stacks up to other quarterbacks when he's a 2015 recruit and Les Miles son. I would think he would have a pretty good idea where he is at. Miles said in the article that he could have played for them last year which may be why his son doesn't want to play for him. He has LSU and Louisiana-Lafayette looking at him according to 247 Sports.
It said he threw two no hitters in high school and wants to play football and baseball. It sounds to me like he's more likely to get a baseball scholarship and can walk on for football.
I don't believe thats how it works. If the kid gets a scholarship, it'll have to count against the football team. This rule prevents teams from giving a bunch of guys "track" scholarships to free up more football scholarships.
If the kid wants to play football at Michigan, Les will be paying his way.
Manny Miles is not a well regarded prospect. Also, he's listed at 5'11", 170 lbs.
But he could be a legacy recruit!!!!1!!one
Do you think Les might be pushing him to be a preferred walk-on?
Unless he hits a growth spurt, I don't know many FBS schools that are going to offer him a scholarship. I'm sure the Miles family has the money to foot the bill for tuition anywhere he wants to go. I wouldn't be surprised if Miles would like to see his son go to Michigan as a preferred walk-on, but if I'm the kid, I'd probably prefer to go to a smaller school (FCS or D-II) and actually play rather than sit on the bench behind Shane Morris, Alex Malzone, etc. for four years.
but he's not great there either. He has two no hitters but throws in the high 70's. He's probably not a large school pitcher.
The experience at Michigan beats most schools, especially if you're an athlete.
Even if I weren't playing a sport and needed a bunch of loans to go to Michigan, I'd rather do that than attend say, Ferris State on an athletic scholarship. That's totally in retrospect though.
Does he eat grass?
somewhere for every recruit to see
I'm sure Les doesn't want him near his troublemaking players.
until Herbstreit says so.
But the guy loves Michigan and we would've had a hell of a lot better last six years on the football field. It still amazes me that Martin knew from the beginning of the season that Carr was retiring and he still fucked up the coaching search so badly. Brandon's "process" was only marginally better. If people are still wondering why we have been down for so long just take a look at those meandering coaching searches and you'll find out.
Do ethics not matter to you?
What exactly has Les Miles done wrong other than being a "character" during interviews? Never been cited for a violation, never had off-field legal issues, and won 2 national championships.
So, where exactly does he fall short on your "ethics" stick? Don't say he "over recruits," because as far as the NCAA is concerned, nothing is wrong with that.
the average LSU grad barely passes the educational standard of a High Schooler.
Maybe the kid actually wants to get an education?
young people do dumb things they regret later or life, or not. But they will most assuredly pay for it for the rest of their lives because in this world there is no shortage of judgemental people.
He's probably like that one kid we all knew in high school that was pretty good at everything but not exceptional at anything. A good enough athlete to contribute on several varsity sports but not a major D-1 athlete.
In the conservatory, with the candlestick.
EDIT: Upon further review, I think that was Colonel Mustard and Mrs. Peacock.
In the closet, with the rope.
EDIT: Wait, I think that might have been David Carradine.
On The motorcycle, with the lead pipe.
EDIT: Dammit, that was Bobby Petrino.
I give up.
I currently own the building and have for several years....I have no idea if Les banged Moeller or Carr's wife....But I know what happened at the Excalibur....Excalibur was a hangout for Michigan coaches. At that time it was a well-respected steak place and "lounge"...It always had entertainment and alot of bigwigs would go there. The lounge area attracted some of the Detroit area's biggest movers and shakers which of course meant lots of women (including many that got paid).
Coach M and his wife went to The X for dinner as they and many other coaches/wives did from time to time. At dinner, they started fighting. No idea about what. Coach M was not a "good drinker" and started to drink. His wife meanwhile starting dancing on the dance floor with either one or more other men...Coach obviously was pissed and also very drunk and started his "tantrum"...The waitress (whom I had under my employment) told the bartender (whom I had under my employment) to cut him off. The GM (whom I had under my employment) could not control Coach M...the cops were called....thats where the tape came from....end of story
