BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Kumbaya session that followed the announcement that Les Miles is staying at LSU appears to be over.

During the football coach's weekly call in show, fans criticized the football coach and his handling of Saturday's game in Green Bay.

"I believe the LSU fans deserve to see a better product put on the field," said a caller named Mary from New Orleans.

Some fans who traveled to Wisconsin described the Tigers' performance on the gridiron as flat.

"Defense looked great, but overall I think we laid an egg unfortunately," Paul Catalanatto said.

"Nothing seemed to change. Everything seemed exactly like it was last year," Debbie Braswell said.

And just like last year, the main source of frustration for the purple and gold die-hards was the offense.

"I'm a staunch supporter of you, but I would like to know if possibly you might try another quarterback? Maybe try something different? What do you have to lose?" one fan told him during a question-and-answer segment.

"I know you're trying hard, but what can you do to create more offense?" another fan asked.

Miles admitted there is room for improvement.

"We threw 21 times, we completed 12. We have to be better," he said.

As for quarterback Brandon Harris, Miles said they have been working with him the past week. However, he said, there may need to be a change.

"There will be that time that another quarterback will be considered," Miles said.

With just days until the home opener, fans still have some faith, but their trust in the coach is, at best, tarnished.

"Hopefully we can put that behind us and move forward and see some change that everybody was hoping for," Catalanatto said.

"I really hope that he changes his plan or decides to go himself," Braswell said.

LSU takes on Jacksonville State Saturday at Tiger Stadium. Kickoff for the home opener is at 6:30 p.m.
