Thoughts on Les Miles’ dismissal of starting QB Ryan Perrilloux on Friday:
- Winning the Nat’l Championship 4 months ago makes it pretty easy to cut your troubled QB. You have a free pass for the next couple of years, Coach Miles. Winning will not be demanded of you for a while.
- With the stunning downward spiral of NFL draftees tabbed with ‘character issues’ combined with recruiting practices that are under more scrutiny than ever, Miles needs to be able to sit in high school athletes living rooms and guarantee parents their kid won’t be part of some unforeseen 24-hour-news-cycle scandal.
- Miles doesn’t need his legacy tarnished by a juvenile scumbag who just. won’t. fucking. behave.
