“We’re throwing it, I can tell you that.”

Les Miles can’t figure out what’s wrong with LSU’s passing game because, after all, in practice every day he can see what’s going on:  “And we’re throwing. We’re throwing balls.”

With keen coaching insight like that, it’s hard to believe his team is last in the conference in passing yardage.

    Maybe the receivers don’t really want to do anything where balls fly at their nose.

    He followed that comment with “I just expect at some point this thing’s going to take off”.

    LEADERSHIP. He has it.

    God, I hope he never gets fired.

    I wonder when Les will pull these gems from the Ol coaches bag-o-quips:

    -“Play the ball son, don’t let the ball play you”

    -“It’s not the size of the man in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the man”

    Considering Miles has spent the last 5 years being the luckiest blind hog in the country, those comments are normal.

    Is it me, or is this the year of head coaches proclaiming everywhere “…it’s not me!” Maybe my memory has faded…Ok, it definitely has…but I don’t recall Bear, Vince, JoePa, Robinson, Bowden, Jimmy Johnson, Switzer, Osborne, etc. laying blame on everyone but themselves.

      Got this one courtesy of The Quotable Les Miles:

      “I know it may appear from the sidelines that, ‘Oh, this guy has lost his mind’ and that might be true, but the truth of the matter is we are operating with a set of circumstances and criteria that are in flux.”

        Folks, it’s not just the verbiose verbage, it’s also the body language.

        Holy crap, what a great website. I love this one:

        “What needs to have happen is we need to prepare to play in this game, and I think this team has that.”

    Zack M come on down, your the next Qb at LSU. Really LSU is screaming for a good QB.

    “We’re throwing it, I can tell you that…”

    “…it’s just that nobody is catching it.”

    Can the “Filed Under” tag be officially changed to “Wit and Wisdom from the Ass-Hat”?
