Les Miles to interview with Michigan this week

Those sure are some interesting looking planes in Baton Rouge this week.  If you're into the fun trend that is tracking flights across this country, then you'd already know that the plane belonging to Michigan booster Richard Rogel has been in Baton Rouge for a few days now.  It's also been rumored that Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon took a plane of his own to Dallas over the weekend to meet with Les Miles during the coaches convention.  Whether or not Miles has already had contact with Michigan, we don't know.  What we do know is that it looks like the interview process is about to be made official, as the Detroit News reports that Miles will officially interview with Michigan this week.

Miles is back in Baton Rouge this morning to attend the press conference for Patrick Peterson, who will be announcing that he's entering the NFL Draft.  After that, sources tell the Detroit News that Miles will interview with Michigan on Tuesday.

Which means one of two things.  Either Les Miles will be the new head coach at the University of Michigan before the week is over, or Les Miles will have a nice little pay raise from LSU by the end of the week.  We know that Michigan has already said it won't spare any expense in finding a new coach, and Miles already makes $3.75 million annually at LSU.  We've also heard that LSU will try and keep Miles in Baton Rouge.

So no matter where he ends up, Les Miles' wallet is going to win.

Because Michigan is the premiere college team in the nation of all time, the prestige of coaching at Michigan out-ways coachin
g at a hick school, do the math, Michigan is #1 in all time wins and #1 in all time winning percentage.

I saw an airboat in Ann Arbor this week with LSU written in crayon on the side: perhaps LSU wants Rich Rod.

I'm pretty sure we saw the same one. LSU was written in crayon, on a card board cut out and duct taped to the side. Perhaps stolen?

Why would anyone, especially Les Miles want to  come to Michigan?  Miles has a great team in LSU and is ranked in the top 10 year after year.  Granted he used to play for U of M, blah blah blah.  If he is as smart of a coach as people say he is, then he will not come to U of M.   Whoever goes there, will have another 3-5 year rebuilding period to get rid of all Rich Rod's crap players that are there now.  I am sure all of the U of M alumni are praying he will come.  But unfortunately, Michigan is no longer a "dream job" for any coach that has brains.  Much like Rich Rod's teams, U of M is  joke and will be for years to come.   Just wondering, is it still great to be a Michigan Wolverine?  Those that say yes, are complete fools.  Couldn't happen to a nicer, snottier group of people.

If he wasn't gonna take the job I don't think he would interview...he would just come out like he did 3 years ago and say he wasn't interested! I know the fans of LSU were tired of him and were calling for his head, so I wouldn't blame him for leaving!

It's a step in the right direction. LSU fans are only pissed because their boosters roll up in 1979 Oldsmoblie Cutlass Supremes.

Less Smiles is an idiot, and therefore will take the Michigan job if it is offered. He puts litte thought into any decisions he makes, and this is his dream job. Then again, the athletic department at Michigan is run by idiots, so it would be a marriage made in heaven.
