he had issues maybe playing under his dad as a kid at some point. I won't coach my kids, my dad was great but I was overwhelmed and failure sucks as a kid especially when your dad is your coach. I won't coach my kids, I want them to experience it without me lecturing them at home and on the field. I was burnt out from baseball by 14, I was scouted starting at 10, went with high school kids to college pitch camps after they invited me. It was to much, I hated failing, losing. It wasn't fun any more to me, it was a job. Anyways yeah I understand Les if this is the case.

I'm not a huge fan of Miles as a coach, but it's hard to question his devotion to the University of Michigan, so this makes a lot of sense. If he was ever actually offered the job here, I'm sure he would have taken it in a heartbeat.

I tend to agree with you, but I'm sure someone could make the argument that it destroyed camaraderie amongst the coaching staff, thus hurting the team, or something along those lines. And then you could say that his actions were disloyal to the University of Michigan as a some vague sense. I don't really buy it, but I guess the argument could be made.

You have no clue what really happened with Miles do you? Les Miles wasn't the person who screwed around with a former assistants wife. He was the person that called Carr out for it. Maybe you remember Bill McCartney well if you and some of the other board people would do some investigation they would have seen Carr's wife is actually Bill McCarney's ex wife. Miles called Carr out for it along with another coach who had a break down at a local restaurant when his wife found out about his infidelities.

but who is checking.

Aside from mixing up the people, the timing makes no sense. Les Miles was in high school when Lloyd and Laurie McCartney got married. Their third oldest child was already a senior QB at UM when Moeller was fired. Shouldn't you have been the one doing the investigating you called for?

another with the "you're clueless and I'm smart" behavior when in fact they are truly clueless.  The poster even said allegedly.  That means no proof.  Not something he witnessed in person.  You give him the "you're clueless" bit and then tell a total bs story because you are seriously clueless.  You weren't there.  You didn't witness it either.  But you're so smart you're going to talk as if you know.  Ha classic.

It would be difficult for him to pull a scholarship from his son. The usual form letter, hide in his office trick won't work as well when he has to see him again.
