Which Coach is Done After This Season?

09 July 2015 - 12:03 PM

As a fun, off season topic of conversation, which coach tanks this season and gets canned/retires?

I could see Spurrier hanging up the visor if Carolina has another lack luster season this year, but I don't think he'll get the axe. The only real teams under consideration have to be:

LSU and Les Miles
Vanderbilt and Derek Mason
South Carolina and SOS
And on the outside looking in Mark Stoops at UK or maybe Butch Jones at UT.

Of the ones I listed above, Les Miles is my pick. Les has never known what to do with a dual threat QB, and if he hadn't had the D bailing him out in 2011, LSU would have been 7-6 that season. That fact of the matter is that one Leslie Edwin Miles has never been able to move the ball on any D worthy of the name with a run first signal caller.

Fournette is a beast, no doubt, probably the best RB in the conference. But he can only do so much when you essentially don't have to respect the pass at all. If LSU is ever down, say, 24-7 or better in a three score game. The chances of a comeback might as well be null. They don't have the offensive firepower, and it all starts under center. They didn't have it last year, and they don't have it this year. Combine the inability to move the ball with losing one of the best DCs in the game, and you have a recipe for a another 8-5 maybe even 7-6 type of year. If that happens, you can almost rest assured that this will be Les' farewell tour in the SEC.
