CBS said that Bertman has stated that there is paperwork but nothing has been signed. Miles said a whole lot of nothing in that press conference. What a strange situation.

he said "I don't want another job." Big difference.

He never said that. He said, "I don't want to talk to anybody else." Big difference there, too, really and I don't know exactly what him not really saying anything means.

Okay we have different media outlets stressing different details. This is indeed interesting. ABC = ESPN so perhaps they are trying to be consistent in their emphases. Hmmm.

lol today is going to be a shitshow. Miles is either a total donk for not closing the door on the Michigan in the press conference, or he's an evil genius trying to squeeze every last penny out of LSU since the deal isn't signed yet. I'm leaning towards the latter.

From ESPN's story:

"Coach Miles and the chancellor have already worked out a contract that they're happy with, but it hasn't been signed yet," Bertman said.

Is it just assumed that Michigan won't/didn't offer a market contract ($2m+)?

If Carty and the Angelique Changellis or whoever are to be believed, Bill Martin never got a chance to talk to him.

Any chance that ESPN intentionally spread this misinformation to generate a breaking news story?

Seems to be a good way to create some interest and temporarily pop ratings up. Just a good old conspiracy theory.

I like Miles but don't LOVE him. While he is certainly suboptimal in his in game decision making, his batshit insanity makes up for this (he is so aggressive he sometimes makes the correct decision for the wrong reason -- and his apparent randomness in his decisions can simulate game theoretic optimality). However, he has kept the LSU program at a very high level, and it's hard to ask more of a coach than that.

made me laugh alot since i agree with alot of it. i think that miles makes some very questionable calls/decisions in terms of clock management.
