    Re: The Difference Between Saban And Miles

    Credit where credit is due: Miles had his team mentally and physically ready for the game Saturday night. Their game plan was solid and if they would have stuck to it they probably win.

    But Miles apparently decided it wouldn't when he tried the four infamous plays that backfired on him.

    On the other hand, CNS hardly ever makes an in-game call like that. And when Bama needed a cool, calm presence on the sideline CNS was there managing the clock and players like cool hand Luke.

    Both are good, but CNS is obviously the cream of the crop in the eyes of college football fans right now.

    That coach Saban has a stronger overall master plan, The Process which is etched into the player's psyche. Les Miles is one of the top 5 coaches in the country, but I think the master plan helped decide the game. The Bama players had ingrained in them "60 minutes, 60 minutes, not sure if the LSU players had Les Miles in their head or not.

    Re: The Difference Between Saban And Miles

    The differences were shown on the field in the final seconds of the game. Coach Saban had Alabama prepared for a 2 minute offense. They were ready for the situation. AJ had said they practice it every Thursday against the number 1 defense. Everyone knew their role, knew the calls that were going to be made. It worked with military precision. 10 yard + sideline passes, out of bounds, stop the clock, read the blitz coming off the left side, quick screen, TD.

    LSU came out in their 2 minute offense and they were lost. It looked to me as if they were running their normal offense. No real sense of urgency, 1 sideline pass and then one right down the middle and of course then the sack, game over.

    Bottom line, Alabama was prepared, well coached and poised. LSU was lost.

    Les eats grass. Saban doesn't (in public view anyway).

    Coach Miles grazes the fields of battle for the best stems of grass. Does he bring his on grass when playing on artificial turf?

    Coach Saban loves Little Debbies! However, he does not bring them to the sideline or does he? Has the media ever caught him eating a Little Debbie on the sideline?

    Re: The Difference Between Saban And Miles

    I'll say this: Les has a more natural smile...although it can surface at inappropriate times. Sometimes when Saban smiles it looks more like an experiment.

    They both have a way of launching an avalanche of words when asked a simple question...but Les's diction, like everything else, seems a tad odd, almost like he has several loose marbles rolling around in his mouth while he is talking.

    I remember my first game as a child and the amazing feeling I got when I first walked into Bryant-Denny. I still get that same feeling every single game.

    Re: The Difference Between Saban And Miles

    The biggest difference to me is how Saban develops his players. Many said last year that LSU would be even better this year, and Bama would be playing catch up. Instead, Bama is #1 and LSU chasing. I think a lot of people forget that. Saban does a great job of developing and managing his players year round. Miles might put together a good gameplan here and there, but at the end of the day, Saban is far superior in terms of running a program.

    Re: The Difference Between Saban And Miles

    They're both outstanding recruiters and coaches.

    The big difference between Les and Saban or any other coach and Saban is that Coach Saban simply prepares his teams for "the big game" better than anyone ever has in my opinion.

    Les is allright. He has his quirks but that's what makes him Les and he's been quite successful.
