    He speaks highly of LSU publicly and still has a lot of friends from his time in Baton Rouge. There's nothing wrong with that.

    No. I knew he preferred LSU.

    You didn’t read it if you thought he was offended by LSU fans. I’m pretty sure he preferred LSU to AL when he left Miami.

    Never said it was. I hope he counts my family as some of them though we have had no contact in many years.

    All I really wanted was for you guys to know he was going to be in the LA Sports HOF. I only made my remark because Gator made his. You seem to think I should let him be snotty to me and not resent it.

    Not really. LSU wasn’t an option, so that was never discussed. More supposition and rewriting history on your part.

    Not sure what you mean.. I just said it was well known that The One Who Left You enjoyed his years at LSU.
    I know exactly where he’s coming from.
    I loved my last job but it was not really a challenge anymore. I wanted to see if I could be successful in a ground zero startup - so I jumped into a completely different field. I still enjoy visiting with my old friends ... I wouldn’t even mind going back ( I might for a couple of years before I retire) but very happy now I made the switch and got to build something completely new.

    He hadn't planned on leaving Miami for either before Mal Moore wouldn't take no for an answer. Even then, Mrs Terry pushed the buttons for the move.

    That is great. It is always wonderful to feel well about every part of your life. I always made that my objective in my work and never felt I went to work a day in my life except maybe a few times when I did my 2 years in the Army. But even then I liked it most of the time. I always tried to work in a family friendly environment. That helped me a lot.

    Well, I know he checked with a personal friend whose wife also was a close friend of Terry on the BOS at LSU before he took the AL job. My son was in the LA House of Representatives at that time and was the point man for LSU in that body. He also knew the gentleman pretty well.

    The contact was to see if Miles was going to Michigan. Michigan had made some contact with Miles by the President of U of MI. It was later passed off as the President just wanted Mikes input on a coach. But in any event Miles told LSU he was staying.

    Upon hearing that Miles was staying He took the AL job. I am sure ultimately he was just as happy at AL as he would have been at LSU. I have little doubt he could have accomplished most of what he accomplished at AL at gLSU if he had come to LSU.

    I’m sure some you don’t believe, even though I have said it on here a lot, I don’t bear any bad feelings toward Saban or AL. In fact I have said on here AL is my second favorite team. Do I envy them? Hell yeah. But bothered by the fact Saban’s at AL? Nope.

    Either your president or AD (can't remember which) had pissed off the Saban's so no, I don't believe that Nick checked to see if he could get the LSU job back before he accepted the job at Bama.

    Liar wouldn’t be accurate. I think you believe you are correct.

    I know I’m correct. Also I’m not even sure the same President and AD were there. There was every reason he might want to consider LSU. He knew what he had accomplished and that he could accomplish the same thing again. AL was an unknown to him. IMO Saban would surely consider that if he was coming back.

    Now whether he would not still have taken the AL job anyway is possible because it was a lot more money. But the conversation did take place.

    Who called you a liar? Interesting that you went there with my comment...as "mistaken" was at least as likely if not more likely.

    The unwarranted defensiveness on the part of @Bill_D kinda makes you wonder.

    I guess this means he was calling my nephew a liar when he disputed the info I provided here thanks to him. Low blow Bill.

    Yes. Some stuff stays between us but other stuff, that he's ok with me sharing, sure.

    Some stuff he's not allowed to discuss at all so of course he doesn't.

    Arden Key ring a bell? You didn't believe it so, by your standard above, I guess that you called me and my nephew a liar. I'm hurt.

    My assault bike is trying to kill me so if a recumbent bike is anything like that, I feel your pain.

    Whatever you're doing seems to be working, keep it up Moby.

    Auburn does have a great vet school.

    Despite the amount of crap I give old man river, I'd hope he wasn't seeking a DVM for his care. OTOH, I have seen some boogs where a vet would be their best option.

    I am its prison bitch.

    The guys I work with don't understand why I do it. They often ask if I get tired driving around in my cruiser telling them which way the bad guy ran over the radio during a foot pursuit.

    I tell them no, I almost never get tired....now turn right at the hedge and run faster bitch!
