Alright here goes...... We all know going 13-0 then playing Bama in 2011 wasn't necessarily fair due to Bama not winning conference or playing in conference championship game, but they were the 2 best teams. After that game it definitely seems something has been taken from Les, his way he attacked games, that swagger he had when he had that team playing so well. When we played a high powered offense in Oregon, I have yet to see that Les since that 2011 season. The team played with so much fire, hunger, passion. Then after that every year we saw the effect of players leaving early which took a toll on the rebuilding and performance. As a head coach it is his responsibility to get his team to have that fire in them, play loose and have fun which imo turns to better play and performance. Next, it is his job to make sure the guys that aren't ready to leave early understand every situation and maybe some of them would of stayed back. I understand them wanting to leave early, but Les has to be honest with them and make sure they know they would be better off coming back. I understand Miles has that old smash mouth style, but at times you need to adjust your style. So now let me ask you... If you were part of the big time boosters paying that salary would you be happy with your investment and having 3-4 conference losses the last 4 years? would you be happy about being 0-5 in last 5 games vs Bama? Losing to Arkansas, Ole miss, Miss St like we have the last few years? Would you take notice in the performance from players and notice no fire, hunger, motivation etc out on the field? Yes, we all can agree since Miles has been here there have been many great things we have witnessed from big time wins, championship, to the father he was for the players and everyone around him. Now I do not want Miles to go, but can understand why there are many unhappy boosters. That being said IF Miles stays many things need to change, he needs to take charge and get leadership and swag back onto that field. Needs to make sure the wrong players that aren't ready to leave early take a hard look at their decision and if he has to bring up the ones that have left early that haven't made it so be it. He needs to get in control of his coaches and if issues need to be addressed well take charge (such as poor special teams play this year, imo players out of position on defense). If coaches aren't getting it done or control of players take over that job and prove a point. Become the leader and one with fire you were before and have fun out there, doesn't seem to be having fun.
