I am not the biggest fan of Les Miles save his being a great person. However, there are not 23 coaches in this country better than him and putting Steve Spurrier that high is a joke. He has been at South Carolina for exactly the same time Miles has been at LSU. Only Miles is averaging over 80% W's and Spurrier has averaged 64%. You can't add in his Florida record of 20 years ago when he and South Carolina have been a joke since before he arrived and ever since. It is also a joke he is rated #8 in the SEC since he very clearly is among the Top three in this conference. Miles is a solid Top 10 coach . In fact I would say a Top 6.
Athlon Magazine is and has been a joke for years and buying one of their rags is a waste of time and the rag is not worthy as bathroom reading material. I call BS on their entire ratings list.
