I love it. Every few years, after the new coach is hired, THIS will be the time things change.

I think Miles will do better than everyone post Mangino, but on the Phog, it's a forgone conclusion they are on the rise and K-State is in the dumps. I'm not convinced of that yet.

I'm with you there. But that's a pretty low bar to cross. I'd be pretty surprised if he has a KU in a bowl game during his tenure.

The real surprise will be that Miles is there long enough to actually make tenure.

Maybe Miles can do some big things in 2020 that have a big impact on the field quickly but their current roster is crazy bad and unbalanced.  His job should be to recruit as many quality HS kids as he possibly can the next three years at the expense of any other metric of trajectory for the program.

As a whole, they have incredibly low CFBIQ.

But anyway, the Big 12 is in a pretty wild time as it stands today. 40% of the programs, WVU, TTU, K-State, and KU, will all have new head coaches (still rumors Gundy might retire as well). And to me, Baylor, TCU, and ISU all have pretty low ceilings with their current trends and staffs. OU will continue to be the star of the show, and now Texas is right there with them, but the other 8 programs are kind of all question marks if you ask me.

Basically, anything could happen over the next 3-5 years, and there's opportunities for many programs to solidify themselves as top half of the Big 12 programs... even KU

IMO that should be the priority for every new coach. hard to commit to.

he should have the ability to do that. long won't fire him and the fanbase isn't in a hurry to hold his feet to the fire.

I think the only thing standing in the way of it is ego.  He would essentially be the guy that sets up the next guy. Given his age I don’t think he would really see much if any of the fruits of that labor.  KU with Miles seems like a great HCIW type scenario, but that’s easier said than done.

I don't know that he'll have the patience he needs coming from LSU.  He's going to have to get used to losing to accept that the only solution is long term.

I still find it hard to believe that KU will sneak into the top half of the Big 12.  This will require 3 or 4 current contenders to fall out dramatically and Les Miles will have to achieve some pretty miraculous Milestones to pull it off.  Honestly, I don’t think even Les believes this can be accomplished.  We’re talking about a 65 year old coach who got obliterated at the famous Oread Bar at KU the night before his signing and I heard he didn’t even have a tab there.  He was in town for maybe a few hours and was already treated like football royalty by alums.  Their fans are drunk on delusions of grandeur.

They don’t call him the Mad Hatter for nothing.  He’s a magician of sorts to have kept his drinking habits out of the public eye for this long, but he’s getting old and sloppy.  I think his inhibitions are wearing thin.

My 4 year old son sees him drinking beer all the time during those Dos Equis commercials. I’ve told him many times he’s helping shape young people and that him drinking beer on TV isn’t being a very good role model.

Can confirm the man drinks too much coffee (possibly to compensate for drinking too much of the hooch).

Not that weird, especially since it appears his (alleged) nondrinking is not widely known. It is not weird for a celebrity to endorse a product they don't use.

I also heard he was a vegan, but my source on that is a random phog poster, so who knows.

He is in a commercial about watering grass(which is eats) with beer. How you come to the conclusion he doesn’t drink the product that waters the grass he eats I will never know.

Anyway I’ve told my son to not use him as a role model.

I don't honestly know whether Les drinks alcohol, much less if he drinks Dos. But I find your smugness about it hilarious and amusing. So self-assured despite marshalling poor logic . . .
