His point is well
taken. This week the Tigers travel to suddenly dangerous Kentucky. Beyond the
Wildcats lurk, among others, Auburn, Alabama and Arkansas. Just because the
Tigers look like the most complete team in the country doesn't mean they are
remotely safe. If the 2007 season has taught us anything, it is this:
Uneasy lies the
head that wears the crown.
Or, in Miles's
case, the ever-present stiff-brimmed LSU ball cap, which, as far as anyone
knows, he wears to bed. Asked late on Saturday if he'd ever, in his six-plus
years as a head coach, rolled the dice so recklessly, he allowed that he had
not, and added, "Nor would I care to again."
But here's the
rub. If the Tigers and the Gators win out, they'll probably meet again in the
SEC title game. Miles might not have a choice.
