UA Says John L. Smith Contract Negotiations 'Consistent' With Other Coaching Deals

Sooners, Longhorns trying to stay in Big 12 race

It's a college football experience unlike any other. (ed note: writer has probably never been to the Iron Bowl. TIA).

Quotable:

It has never been Miles' nature to get specific about what moves he might make after a loss or other negative results. That's not to say he doesn't have specific changes in mind, but he won't throw players and coaches under the bus and he doesn't want his team thinking there's any other solution but for them to play better.

"Our football team is going through some changes," he said. "We need to play better in a number of ways. It is not an effort thing. I enjoyed my team's effort. We have to play smarter and with a wisdom that allows us to use the advantages that we were given in that game. In our view we have to run it and throw it better."

That's not exactly news. The Tigers were held to 200 yards of offense and LSU has scored one touchdown in the last three games against an SEC foe. LSU running backs produced 61 yards on 21 carries against Florida and the entire offense never established a rhythm. The Miles mantra is that execution is the problem.
