Les Miles is so FOS about this ex post facto grayshirting debacle with Elliott Porter that you wonder why he decided to open his mouth about it in the first place.
… He noted that Porter’s scholarship offer was still good, just postponed a semester. He said if somebody made the same offer to one of his sons, they would “certainly be disappointed that day, but recognize that, long-term, it’s not a bad thing.”
Miles said grayshirting can benefit players who could use time to allow their bodies to mature.
“He might take his time to come in shape and to benefit his body and compete,” he said.
All of which might have come off a bit more convincing if Miles had asked Porter to grayshirt before he moved into his dorm room. Besides, I thought that’s what a redshirt is for. Maybe ol’ Les’ problem is that he’s colorblind.
