So, since there’s absolutely nothing else going on right now, I thought I’d bring up an interesting question to not only Tennessee fans, but fans across the SEC. Who do you hate more? Les Miles? or Nick Saban?
Les Miles, the current LSU Tigers coach, was formerly of the Big XII, and basically handed a team loaded with talent like nobody’s business. Of course, having even a pulse would have guided those teams to 11 win seasons, but we’ve seen in the past, bigger bunglings with similar talent. Miles was thrown into the fire in his first season having to deal with the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which must have been difficult to handle, but Miles was able to hold his head high, and keep up a semblance of sanity and class throughout the whole ordeal. Also, he learned that he needed a big boy headset at that first home game against Tennessee.
Nick Saban, the former LSU Tigers coach and current coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide, left LSU unceremoniously only to head back to the ranks of the SEC West but at a different school only 2 years after having left a program that he took to the national title game. Of course, he burned quite a few bridges at LSU due to his departure, but apparently became the messiah of Tuscaloosa when he signed on to be the second coming of Bear Bryant.
Both coaches have been with powerhouse programs, and both coaches are just a little bit smug and coach in the West, but if I would have to choose, I guess I’d have to choose Saban to hate more. Not only because he’s just a little too smug, but because he coaches now for the team that is evil. Here’s hoping to the two coaches fist fighting every year, with Miles’ baby-headset squaring off against Saban’s super-locks.
