    Thats only fair.

    How great would that be!!! If Trooper was made the head coach, the NCAA would buy a house in Auburn to house all of their investigators. Some lawyers there would get extremely rich with all of the work they would have.

    Coaching Carousel: Les Miles offered $27.5 million for five years at Arky

    Looks as if the sources are a little dicey and being confirmed but if true, would be interesting to see how this is used for leverage with LSU for a new deal.

    Now has been confirmed by Sportscenter: https://twitter.com/SportsCenter/sta...15547512524800

    That was real interesting. I think He'll walk away from LSU.

    Les Miles took his team he has coached for 8 seasons, loaded with future NFL talent and beat an Arkansas team thats been spiraling out of control with no real leadership by 7 points. Think about that.

    Hmm... Walk away from an automatic recruiting bonanza to a recruiting desert (he's familiar with that from OSU). Maybe there's enough $$$. I sort of doubt it...

    Re: Coaching Carousel: Les Miles offered $27.5 million for five years at Arky

    I see this happening with Miles going to Arkansas.


    Here is some background and connective tissue between Miles and Arkansas and why there may be mutual interest:

    Long began his administrative career at Michigan after he was hired by Bo Schembechler, the man who recruited Miles to play for the Wolverines in the 1970s. Long was on the UM staff after Miles returned to his alma mater as an assistant coach from 1987-94.

    One of the Razorbacks' most influential and wealthy alumni is Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who played on Arkansas' 1964 national championship team. Miles was a Cowboys assistant coach from 1998-2000 and he developed a strong bond with the owner.
    Strong enough, in fact, that when Miles' father died, Jones offered to send the assistant coach home to Ohio in the owner's private jet. Miles' name came up when Dallas was in the market for a coach in 2003, 2007 and 2010.

    One source close to the LSU athletic department said Jones is a major reason the salary has ballooned to the $5 1/2-million range.

    Yeah, why leave...where you have constantly recruited NFL caliber players and just won the Sec And played in the BCSNC. Unless he feels the pressure? But I just don't see the pressure getting to him.

    If Miles to Arkansas happens it will be a major distraction until next Christmas. The media will best that dead horse to a bloody mess. We will have to endure all the talk up to the bowl game and I've gotten a headache thinking about it.

    247Sports reported on their rumor board a few weeks ago that Miles was interested in the Cowboys job. Maybe, Arky was his real target.

    Let's imagine Les in a hog hat calling those hogs. Awesome for everyone not in Arkansas.
