For all of the strange twists and turns the simmering Les Miles saga has taken for LSU, the most recent news coming out of Baton Rouge might be the most surprising.
After multiple reports surfaced over the last several days, nearly all of which indicated that Miles’ days with the Tigers were numbered, it now appears that the longtime coach’s fate may not actually be sealed. In fact, according to Scott Roussel of Football Scoop, multiple sources have said that “if LSU wins, there now is a very real chance Les hangs on.”
Roussel goes on to point out that this apparent change in thinking has occurred over the past few days, and that the “political forces” now working to keep Miles at LSU are “above” athletic director Joe Alleva.
If this is really the case, Saturday night’s regular season finale against Texas A&M may have just taken on much greater significance as the situation surrounding Miles continues to become more and more complex.
But one thing is for sure, Tigers fans: Buckle up, because the next few days could get a little wild.
