I am officially done with the National Enquirer a.k.a ESPN. These motherfuckers do not know their ass from a hole in the ground. It's real easy to report every scenario of a story, then claim that they were on top of it when a definite answer comes out.
Case in point. Around 11:00 this morning Kirk Herbstreet reported that his "source" confirmed that LSU coach Les Miles was going to Michigan. Maybe an hour later, Espn reported that Les Miles is staying at LSU. Thank You WORLDWIDE LEADER IN SPORTS. What would I do without you?
This happens way to often for ESPN to keep their credibility. Take the early weeks of the NFL season. Chris Mortensen reported that Eli Manning was to miss at least 4 weeks due to a shoulder injury due to a hit he suffered during the end of a game. Thirty fucking minuted later Eli was interviewed saying it was nothing serious and he would play next week. THEN, Mortensen had the balls to go back on t.v. to say he stands behind his report. That his source was correct. Eli has not missed a game yet. Thank you WORLDWIDE LEADER IN SPORTS!!
Back to this Les Miles story. Let me tell you why this played out like it did and how it is going to end. Lsu granted Michigan permission to talk to Miles under only one condition, wait until AFTER the SEC Championship game. Completely understandable. However, Miles' agent can talk to Michigan and basically both sides can come to an agreement on the DL. A basic understanding if you will. Well good ol' ESPN had to interfere and reported this. Now Les Miles then had to go on t.v. and give a news conference (for the second time) that he is an LSU man and he is here to stay. Well NO SHIT!! What was he supposed to say? The deal was supposed to wait you stupid fucks. He has a CHAMPIONSHIP GAME TO PLAY YET ASSHOLES!!
Now what is going to happen is in about 2 weeks, Les Miles is going to accept the job at Michigan. Then ESPN is going to play it out as he is a Nick Saban or a Larry Brown type of coach. Say one thing to make people happy....then do what you want anyway. When this whole time Miles was taking the Michigan job.
It is possible for a coach to handle his business with his current team while letting his alma mater know he will coach there next year. It is not a distraction until ESPN gets involved. THANK YOU WORLDWIDE LEADER IN SPORTS.
I THINK RON BURGUNDY WAS ON TO SOMETHING
