In addition to the many storylines surrounding this hypothetical matchup, an LSU trip to Ann Arbor, Mich. would mark the first time that a ‘Les Miles to Michigan’ report would have any truth to it.

Miles was reported in 2007 by ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit to be leaving LSU to take the head coaching job at Michigan, his alma mater, barring unforeseen events. Miles informed the media shortly after that he would be staying in Baton Rouge, and that his discussions with the Wolverines were simply to assist in their head coaching search.

The rumors emerged again when Rich Rodriguez was fired in 2011. And once again after Michigan fired Brady Hoke this past offseason.

Yet despite all of the chatter regarding Miles’ alleged return home, he is still at LSU entering his 11th season as head coach.

While all signs point towards The Mad Hatter finishing his career in the Purple and Gold, a home-and-home series between the Wolverines and the Tigers would be a welcomed addition by both fan bases.

Tiger Stadium and Michigan Stadium both rank among the best game day environments in college football. In addition, LSU and Michigan have two of the most prestigious football programs in the country.

While the Wolverines have struggled mightily in recent years, a visit to either venue would an incredible experience for any college football fan.
