We love Les Miles. We do. The grass-eating, kiss-you-all-on-the-mouth maverick coach pulls two or three results out his butt every year (and also loses a couple of games like that too!), loses talent every year, and still keeps LSU competitive.
He's a miracle worker in a place where miracles are much talked-about, because 13-0 is expected. And if not, he's the most hated coach in Louisiana, if not the South. LSU fans seemingly are never happy with Miles, even if they win.
Well, they might be a little more grateful for wins than most this season.
THE QUARTERBACK PROBLEM

After another highly-successful NFL Draft, SEC draftees from 2015 are GOING to make an impact in 2015. Sadly, after his ACL tear on Friday in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ first minicamp, one of them’s not going to be the SEC’s No.1 pick, Dante Fowler (went No.3 in the draft).
1. AMARI COOPER (OAKLAND RAIDERS)
The former Alabama wide receiver was taken as the best player at that position on the board, despite others seeming to love Kevin White. If his quarterback can throw properly to him, Cooper’s going to cause havoc.
2. TODD GURLEY (ST LOUIS RAMS)
Look, we know Read more [...]
