LSU and college football fans react to Les Miles being fired
The college football world was met with a shock on Sunday, as LSU fired Les Miles. While the news itself wasn’t surprising — he was on the hot seat dating back to last year — the timing was. Just a day after the Tigers’ second loss of the season, LSU administration didn’t give Les time to coach his way out of this mess. He’s gone.
And with it, the reaction poured in from across the internet. Despite the disappointing end, much of it was positive.

Les Miles has a better win percentage than Nick Saban at LSU, and only losses this season to a top 10 team and a called back TD vs Auburn

If Nick Saban hired Les Miles it would be more unfair than KD going to the Warriors

If I was the AD at Penn State I would try to make Les Miles my coach by next Saturday

You want a coach who has proven he can win, and has the name value to compete with Meyer & Harbaugh? Les Miles is your man, Penn State.
