The first 7 games of this season were a vast improvement over last year. This is a young team and they still put that together. Go read some of our own threads. We were leading the SEC West and were #2 in the country. Even though you now point out how that wasn't that big of an accomplishment , the committee and pollsters at the time certainly disagree with you. Our QB play had improved from last year and of defensive line was getting pressure on the quarterback. And yes attrition has takes a huge toll on our team. Why do you think we lack so much depth and play so many true freshman? Miami and USC also are up there with numbers of players leaving for the NFL. How are they doing? Coaches can only do so much. If a players wants to leave early not much can be done. Thanks to Miles' efforts, Mills, Alexander and Hawkins came back this year. I posted a tweet from from Trey LMFAO and he points out that early exits and injuries mean something. The players get it, they know this team better than any of us do. Guarantee you that you cannot find a single player who would tell you Miles needs to go even if you tell them Jimbo is the replacement. Hell he's has players he kicked off the team in his corner. But its a moot point because at some point after the A&M game Les Miles will be fired. And all of our wonderful fans can be happy.
I didn't mention Alleva's propensity for cronyism at Duke, the author of the article did. I found that while doing a little research on Alleva and it renewed my questions of why we ever hired the guy in the first place. I hope to God my own fate never is in the hands of Joe Alleva. And the fact that the Doooook lacrosse stuff happened 10 years ago doesn't change the fact that some serious lapses occurred. What he did in response to the incident and his testimony was horrible and reflects a serious character flaw and lack of judgment. That kind of trait doesn't just go away. And we all need to pray that Jimbo says yes. You can have all the confidence in Alleva that you want, I don't and never will. If plan B ends up in his lap were are in deep shyt.
