The only way this could have been better was if the guy who said Les Miles needs "BRAIN SURGERY" had spelled it, "BRIAN SURGERY."

Sorta like what his post got...

Man maryland has really been shit on this year...  It is too bad Stefon Digg's had to piss off the coaches when he wasn't there when they visited.  We sure could of used a player like that this year on offense..

Clearly there were other factors at play than just that. For instance, it seems pretty clear he wanted to stay close to home. Even if he hypothetically burned the Michigan bridges, he is enough of a talent to go someplace significantly better than Maryland. The fact that he chose Maryland over, you know, a competent program, leads me to think he was going to Maryland regardless of how his relations with our coaches were.

I'm sorry but the next time somebody claims we're delusional and have ridiculous expectations for the football team I'm going to point them to Tiger Droppings.  five losses in three years, two appearances in the MNC game with one win and they want to get rid of Miles????  Seriously? 

Reminds me of Minnesota when they HAD to get rid of Glenn Mason cause "dammit we're Minnesota and 7-5 just doesnt cut it around here".  Careful what you wish for.......

"In his (Les Miles') world, any team in our league can beat us in the last seconds of the game, with one play. Is this what we want in a coach?"

So, the field goal in OT last November wasn't good enough, was it? Putting the game against Alabama away with mere minutes to go in November 2010 still doesn't cut it? Les has beaten plenty of teams for you in the closing seconds with one play (or a few strung together). Wow, tough crowd down in Baton Rouge.

I think it is a problem that infects the SEC schools in general.  Every school there demands excellence and national championships.  Look at how GA's Richt is on the hot seat every year, despite always having 9 or 10 win seasons.  There are schools that would kill for that kind of consistency.

I am so sad that Brian couldn't work in a Johnny Adams .GIF or the serious discussions spartan fans were having about joining the mid american conference.  I guess there is always next week.
