PURDUE NEEDS FORFEIT THE GAME NEXT WEEK AND FLY EVERYONE DOWN TO LES MILES HOUSE AND CAMP OUT UNTIL HE SIGNS ON TO BE THE HEAD COACH OF THE BOILERMAKERS.
But Hazel can stay home.
Damn, the LSU/Auburn game really was a loser leaves town affair
Maybe this is the best way I can put it: If Purdue hired Les Miles, as an IU fan, I'd be fine with that.
2007 SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS & 2010 AFC CHAMPIONS
1940, 1953, 1976, 1981, & 1987 NCAA CHAMPIONS & 2002 NCAA FINALISTS
1970, 1972, & 1973 ABA CHAMPIONS & 2000 NBA EASTERN CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS
The reason Miles was canned was because he refused to play SEC football. He wanted to play smashmouth football. Which would fit perfectly with Purdue. Purdue needs the culture changed and Miles is a brilliant recruiter. And for **** sakes, could you imagin Miles, Meyer and Harbaugh in the same conference. Its a win for Purdue. They really need to go balls out and try to get him.
While I don't think Miles is amazing, he would be a great hire for Purdue.
Yeah if Purdue or a non-power football college got Les Miles it would be a win, just don't really expect him to win a national title, but he can recruit guys and change the culture. To a lesser extent its what Rich Rod has done down here with Arizona football. They were constant losers but now its at least a winning season just about every year, don't think there will ever be a national title or anything but better than the crap that it was.
"It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

Have at it, Boilers. He's an amazing recruiter because it's really easy to recruit to LSU. They are in a talent rich state with no major in state competition. Kids grow up wanting to play football at LSU. Plus easy access to both Florida, Texas, and the fertile grounds that the SEC is in.
That said, he would absolutely recruit (much) better than recent coaches at Purdue. I just keep going back to how he could never develop quarterbacks when they were all 4-5 star guys, his offense was vanilla as **** under multiple OCs, and his clock management is ****ing atrocious. It's BS that he refused to play SEC football too--hell the SEC West programs are all mostly based around power running schemes except Texas A&M (Bama, Auburn, Arkansas, LSU). He would be better than Hazell, but most anyone clears the low bar he has set.
I think Les Miles is going to wait out until Jim Harbaugh returns to the NFL(possible future Colts coach to reunite with Andrew?)
Same like Larry he can coach college and pro with ease but is also incredibly restless.
I think that they would hire Les Miles if Harbaugh bailed on them because who else out there could they get that would be better that isn't already taken. Plus he's also a former alum like Harbaugh.
Its not like Harbaugh has ever won anything.... I don't get how Miles is worse.
He got fired. LSU's expectations are not any more unreasonable than any other top 10 program. He was on the hot seat for years there, for good reason. He couldn't put an offense on the field that was worth a ****, despite having 4-5 star guys all over the field.
He does deserve a decent gig as a second chance. He did a lot of things well and did win a national title. But Michigan isn't a "decent" job. It's one of the 10 best in college football. I said I think he will get a P5 job--with a few exceptions, those are "decent" gigs.
Harbaugh completely changed the atmosphere at Stanford. We're so used to them winning all the time, but they were like 1-11 the year before Harbaugh got there. They were awful and short on talent. Within three years he had them in BCS bowls and competing in the Pac-12. Then he goes to the NFL, where few college coaches succeed (sup Saban), and completely turned around the 49ers from a crap team to an instant contender. He took them to the Super Bowl and a couple NFC title games. The guy is one of the best coaches in the game, pro or college.
Wait till Michigan actually expects a championship and he won't be able to deliver.
