I’m still trying to wrap my brain around LSU gaining more yardage in the second half yesterday than ‘Bama did in the entire game.
We can’t handle the truth. Les Miles is a grass-eating genius.
… Miles downplayed his whole “Mad Hatter” image. Deep down, though, he almost seems to enjoy it.
“I think that’s overblown,” Miles said. “I promise you that it’s not in my hat. I don’t think I’ve done anything that 50 or 60 high school coaches in this state wouldn’t do. I think if you like football and have a feel for some stuff, you let it ride sometimes.”
Or a lot of times.
“When he calls something, there’s a good percentage that play is going to be there,” said LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis, whose unit held Alabama to 325 total yards. “He knows. He studies. He’s worked it.
“I’ll be honest with you. The guy’s a brilliant guy when it comes to strategy in football games.”
