December 6th Is... Probably Not That Important

A strongly worded article on the LSU official site contains a definite drop-dead date for the whole Miles foofery:

ATLANTA -- LSU Chancellor Sean O'Keefe has reached an agreement with Les Miles on an amendment to his contract that will secure Miles' position as head football coach of the Tigers.

Miles authorized his representative, George Bass, to negotiate the terms of the contract with LSU. Terms and conditions of the contract have been agreed upon and will be presented at the next meeting of the LSU Board of Supervisors on Dec. 6.

Miles will not entertain any offer from the University of Michigan to become the Wolverines head coach or from any other institution. The University of Michigan on Wednesday requested permission to discuss its open head football coaching position with Miles.

FYI. Rumblings on the Michigan side of things are of the "this isn't over!" type... but it looks grim.

Update: Miles was just on CBS making unequivocal statements. Next candidate, please?
