Would it possible that Notre Dame might let Kelly go and go after Miles. I know ND has big time money where they can afford to do that.

What are U drinking, smoking, snorting?

Les Miles could see how things shake out at Oklahoma, Penn State, Houston could be interesting, Baylor, FSU, Notre Dame maybe, Louisville. The dominoes are just begining to fall. All I know is that its so awesome to be looking out on the college football landscape wondering this with Richt as our HC. Ask yourself this Miami Hurricanes fans, are you better off now than you were 4 years ago, lol.

The Dude

And damn it feels good to be 1st again.

The Dude

Not sure if anyone has reported it, but FIU fired Ron Turner.

The Dude

USC is almost certainly an open job at the end of the year.

The Dude

Oregon might be also.

The Dude

The Ducks let Brady Hoke bring in that Big 10 3-4 and now they cant stop anyone. Lol.

jcane

On a slightly brighter note of the day than all of the losses, congrats to former Cane, Yasmani Grandal, on winning the west with the Dodgers.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

LSU will finish the season with Ed. After this season, they will pursue Jimbo hard! I also think USCw will consider Les Miles.

Sad News.....RIP Arnie

Great article....I am guessing there are very few golfers on this blog. Not 1 comment (except for mine) about a man who has done so much besides being a great golfer and great role model. Just a shame....

Terrance Sullivan

RIP Arnold PALMER!

TS showing love.....NICE!!!

Go,GoCanes!

Les Miles is everyone's drunk obnoxious uncle.

Go,GoCanes!

No, Les Miles is your dads recently divorced friend from high school who's hitting on your sister's friends.

There were comments on the last blog.

UMike

Mr. Palmer was before my time, but none the less may he rest in peace. I am truly saddened however, by the passing of Jose Fernandez and that unfulfilled life. Just getting to the mountain top and never getting to enjoy the view. Hopefully his earnings to this point have set up his soon to be born daughter for life. Sad tragic story.

raizecane

Agree UMike - A life taken to soon.

RIP Jose and Palmer.

2016 has been rough.

LOL...yeah, I don't see Miles as a coach that you bank your future on. And no dis-respect, but I frankly don't see Him as a legit candidate for any of the jobs mentioned here. He's getting up there in age,boring, and what has He brought to the game as far as innovations???

He brings a name, a ring, and recruiting chops. Wouldn't surprise me to see him get another high profile gig.

Harry Miller

Graduating from Miami Senior High School in 1960 Arnold Palmer was my Hero I loved Arnie
Palmer. He was the reason I played golf. I felt very emotional last night watching the different tributes to him. I will miss Arnold Palmer.

UMike

If South Carolina can hire Muschump, someone will hire Miles. He is still a name.

CaneRock

Epi...I can see Him getting a GO5 job, but I don't see USC or ND backin' up the armored truck for em'.

Lur-ker

Who will hire Miles? Especially in a P5 conference.

Serious question.

Candidates?

I'm a big time golfer/fan! I bet 90% of people my age (36) haven't even heard of Arnold Palmer. Great human being and role model!

Chi Chi Rodriguez lives in my town and I saw him at a golf tournament I was in a couple of months ago. That guy is my favorite, he's one funny mother fuker!

I also met Gary Player. He was on my flight about 5 years back and started to talk to him at baggage claim. There is another class act guy. I think he was surprised a person my age actually recognized him.

Posted by: CaneRock | September 26, 2016 at 09:46 AM

It probably will be a function of number of openings vs number of splashy candidates available. There is only a handful of big names available any post season. Let's say Kelly leaves LOU, goes wherever. Les would be a candidate. I don't think Texas comes a calling, but the tier right below will.

Consider Les vs. CMR. Similar situations. Les has a ring.

1mg of Epi

Lurker see above

Lur-ker

Can't think of one P5 that would take him, outside of Kansas, maybe Minnesota, Purdue, or some other perennial cellar dweller.

I don't think a serious program committed to win takes him. Name one. Louisville won't take him. Guaranteed.

Posted by: CaneRock | September 26, 2016 at 09:08 AM

You said it CR. None of those programs listed above are hiring les miles as he was a failure at LSU with all those built in advantages and a great recruiting classes he had there. And people say but he won a ship, well he's also the only one to do it with two freakin losses and needed a day in 2007 where like five teams ahead of him all lost on the last day of the season to even get them in that game. Dudes brand of football doesn't work in this day and age. The game has definitely passed him by. As far as his replacement, option number 1 Herman. He's a southeast Texas guy which is the only place LSU really goes out of state to recruit And he's and offensive coach that developes QBs. Option number 2 art briles. Again a southeast Texas guy with a penchent for developing QBs and hire powered offenses. What I can guarantee is who ever they hire will be an offensive minded coach. So any D minded coaches you can scratch off right now.

Ohio_Cane

Les Miles to USC?

TonyCane

Lot of people here in Austin think that Art Briles will be going to LSU.

30CINCO

Can Briles really be hired with what went on at Baylor under him?

UMike

Lurker, IDK what teams, but IMO at seasons end there will surely be teams calling. He is a top recruiter with a winning record and a ring. Someone is going to take him. IDK if it will be a top program, but if there are P5 openings, he will get a job. Worst coaches have been hired, see Muchamp at USCe

UMike

Consider Les vs. CMR. Similar situations. Les has a ring.

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | September 26, 2016 at 10:21 AM

I was gonna say something similar. CMR just wasnt winning enough for UGA, but he was winning. Miles has a ring and better recruiting classes. IDK how old he is though.

30CINCO

Lane Kiffin is a name to watch for LSU

thirstybuzzardcane

Take Louisville all day at +2 against Clemson. They will win by 2 touchdowns or more.

UMike

Clemson is going to "upset" Louisville IMO

Lur-ker

Except that Les Miles is considered a flake and Richt isn't.

Again, no serious P5 program will look at him.

You can add Maryland and Kansas to the list I put up in my prior post. Only dead dog programs will show interest. You know the ones.

Les Miles will NOT get a serious P5 job, i.e., a program that will ever contend for even its own conference championship.

BigWindyCane1

Arnold Palmer was a great golfer and gentleman with a Miami connection. Rest in Peace!

raizecane

Thirsty, That is a great story about Gary Player. I go to Bayhill in hopes to see Arnie. Payne Stewart was one of my favorites.

I need to push 58 to set up a golf tourney somewhere in Central Florida for us golfers.

UMike

IDK why you think that opinion is a certainty, especially in football. Programs always look to hire a name. Also, if programs are already competing for conference titles, they may not be in the market for a coach. If guys like Muschamp, Petrino, Leach etc can get gigs at P5 schools, so can Miles. Depends on who needs a coach at seasons end.

Ohio_Cane

Barry Jackson ‏@flasportsbuzz 2m2 minutes ago

ESPN and ABC announce will hold off on start time and network for Oct. 8 UM-FSU until next weekend

^^ Show of hands... Who's surprised? Lol

Lur-ker

Scar was demoted to non-serious P5 contender as soon as they hired Muschimp.

LOL @Leach and Wazzu. GTFOH. One of my best buds was a starter at LB for them and he'll even tell you they're not a serious P5.

Petrino is a philanderer, a disloyal SOB, and a sh*tty human being, but he's a serious coach.

Miles is no longer considered a serious coach.

No serious P5 will hire him. Guaranteed.

I've already provided a list of bottom rung teams that MAY have look at him. I may have missed one or two bottom dwellers, but I guarantee you that NO serious P5 will look at him, End of story. I'm sure of it.

WWIN

Les Miles is more Larry Coker than Mark Richt.

I agree with Lurker... no top program is taking him. What happened with Muschamp doesn't normally happen... that's why a lot of people was shocked that usc hired him.

TheeMackJones

The Canes open as a -6.5 point favorite at GT

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | September 25, 2016 at 09:38 PM

Ain't I BOSS. huh Because, last Thursday or was it Wednesday, I said Miami would open as a... - 7 point road chalk.

Oh, and one more thing. The current point spread will INCREASE by game day. So I suggest you wager on Miami now. Naturally laying the - 6 1/2. Because I SEE-r another double-digit road victory!

TheeMackJones

Posted by: The Dude | September 25, 2016 at 10:22 PM

The Ducks had trouble stopping legitimate offenses prior to Hoke. In other words, the Ducks game goal was to OUT SCORE opponents, and come away with the victory. huh

Oh. A SECOND STRING signal caller chit all over the Ducks in small town, rustic Eugene. LOL

UMike

Lurker, miss me with that "GTFOH" shit. If you wanna make a point thats fine, but dont talk to me like im some punk. Did I come at you that way?

Just because you guarantee it doesn't mean thats how it will be. Why would any serious P5 team that is already winning look at any coach not named Saban or Meyer? If a team is looking for a coach at the end of the season, its because they werent winning. No one is going to dumb a winning coach for Miles, but he will get a job and he will get interest.

That would be fun!

The Dude

Les Miles to Penn State.

AfriCane

Whoever thought Les Miles was a good coach in the first place has an IQ of a tortoise. Look, that moron's claim to fame was winning with saban's talent. The championship he won was with saban's talent. All he did was assume the culture that Sabah built. U could say it was smart. But he ran out of time. Essentially, he was another Coker. Except he fizzled out more slowly than Coker. He was also riding on the SEC hype. All he had was a good DC. So he always had a descent defense. And since all the SEC schools were playing patsies, he piled up some wins. Look at the wide receivers he had and he do shit; OB Jr. , the guy with the Dolphins. Right now is a prime example; this mofo has Malakei Dupri and the best running back in football and he has a shitty offense. He should have fired Cameron last year himself and brought in an OC with a spread system and just run and air it out. That team got worse slowly every year since saban left it for the Dolphins.
Good riddance!!!

UMike

Im not trying to preach about him being a good coach, just saying he will get interest and a job based on his name, his ring, his recruiting and amount of wins.

thirstybuzzardcane

Les Miles to Penn State.

Posted by: The Dude | September 26, 2016 at 12:42 PM


Is this an opinion or fact? I could see that happening. I would say he'll go to one of the big ten schools. His system fits well for the big 10

UMike

Wherever he goes, his mindset on offense needs to change.

UMike

Just glad we got CMR when we did, we might be chasing Miles is Golden stayed another year lol

thirstybuzzardcane

^^^^^^Yikes!

TheeMackJones

Canes are getting plenty of love and respect from the polls, besides the AP and Coaches.

S&P + Ratings has the Canes No. 6!

Uncle Lester will never change his offensive philosophy ( Akin to the " unnamed one " never changing his defensive philosophy. ). Simply because he's too old and too conservative.

UMike

Anyone have an ideas for breakfast foods at the tailgate? Not sure I want burgers, dogs ect at 7:00.

It would be the " unmentionable one " Part II. OUCH

Mack...probably went a long way in getting him fired. Very similar to Golden and his defense

Can that be made on a grill... with no side burner? lol

Terrance Sullivan

Burgers and Dogs UMike. I Beg U!

UMike

Tsully...those are coming no matter what, just not sure thats what everyone will want for breakfast lol... I think ima pick up breakfast on way and plan to cook brunch at the tailgate

TheeMackJones

How about omelets with hash browns or grits. I say grits because a lot of Cane fans are from the deep south. Also a nice type of bread and some type of fruit salad. Along with your favorite alcoholic beverage.

Have some Kabasa Sausage on a roll with mustard!

herbieibis

Miles got himself fired. Offense stuck in the 80's and for all the talent they have, they don't have a good QB. Nothing wrong with the pro-style offense, except it's antiquated but you have to have wrinkles if you are going to run it and have a qb that is a game manager. Their defense is tough. I can see Miles at USC. He can recruit.

thirstybuzzardcane

I never eat breakfast, but when I do its usually dinner foods.

thirstybuzzardcane

The drink of choice has to be Bloody Mary's. Best morning drink ever!

If you can't take GTFOH on a sports blog, I suggest you stop posting, because you're too sensitive. We're not posting on a Victorian blog about proper table manners. It's sports, and that's how people talk.

30CINCO

don't forget the gray poupon.

Lur-ker

Back to Miles: watch what happens, you'll see. I'm 100% confident.

Also, I never have understood Bloody Mary's. Tomato juice tastes like sh*t. Just give me the liquor and skip that thick swill.

Basil tomato soup = excellent.

Tomato or any vegetable juice = vomit inducing

The Dude

Miles at USC makes zero sense and Pat Haden is retired there.

I did some grocery shopping this morning. And I noticed that Greg Louganis is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
In my opinion Greg Louganis was the greatest athlete ever to compete for UM.

HAPPY SOUP

I now live on the golf course in Championsgate, which is one of the nicest and highly rated courses in the State. I can get everyone discounted rates, just pay the cart fee.

We can stop by my house next to the tee box on hole #11 and have a nice cold beverage and snack along the way!

BOOYAH!!!

AfriCane

Lurker, ditto about Bloody Mary. It's not vomit inducing, it is vomit. I always thought some college kid woke up in the morning, poured some vodka in a glass, and while drinking it threw up the soup from the night before in the cup, continues drinking the toxic mixture. And because he was fucked up, thought it was good and posted the recipe on webtender.com. And voila!

Herbie, I didn't get the note about the pro style been outdated. The whole NFL didn't either, and neither did Alabama who won 3 + titles with it. And neither did CMR. Les's problem was not having a QB like the rest of QDC aka SEC. Except the others find a way to win.

Ohio_Cane

Kiffin to USC? LOL JK

I'd be willing to bet LSU will hire Jimbo, Herman or Kiffin.

The Dude

LSU would take Jimbo over everyone else I think. In that scenario, maybe Kiffin goes to FSU? Herman might be the guy for USC if Chip Kelly tells them no.

The Dude

Posted by: AfriCane | September 26, 2016 at 02:47 PM

Les' problem wasnt that he never had a QB, but that he insisted on going 3 and out trying to smash a RB through really good defenses. Defenses like Bama, you cant just line up and knock over. Its why throwing has become so popular in the NFL too, you just cant realiably run anymore, the defenses are too big and fast. In the championship game between LSU and Bama thats exactly what we saw. Les said we're gonna run through them whereas Saban said we cant do that, lets get throwing.

Harry Miller

Golf Tourney, did someone say golf tourney?
Long way. I might be interested.

The Dude

The eye roll inducing name that I have my eye on for USC is Jon Gruden.

The Dude

Im curious though, if Jimbo were to go to LSU... and FSU were to hire a guy like Briles, Petrino or Kiffin, how would that be recieved nationally?

What about Les Miles to Baylor?

Lur-ker


Posted by: The Dude | September 26, 2016 at 03:16 PM

Players notified.

The Dude

^^^ Lol. Exactly. But IF, he were to come back, thats the type of job I think he'd take and the kind of star name USC needs.

Dam, now I can never use that word again!! I didnt meant in that sence... just the time, I swear!

The Dude

I say 90% chance Jimbo stays at FSU though. There is zero reason to leave. LSU and FSU are equal programs. He'd basically have to love LSU or not like FSU so much. Also, even though Petrino is a total scum bag, I dont see him jumping ship from Louisville for at least another year after this.
