“We want to serve this state.”

Walk softly and carry a big hat.

LSU coach Les Miles said his program will participate in several satellite camps this summer and host its own camps where it’ll invite other Louisiana programs to attend — with one exception.

Miles, appearing on “Culotta and the Prince” on 104.5 FM ESPN in Baton Rouge on Friday morning, said every camp LSU hosts will be open to other in-state schools, such as UL-Monroe and UL-Lafayette, unless a school already has plans to partner with out-of-state schools for camps.

On Thursday, first-year Tulane coach Willie Fritz announced the Green Wave will host camps “featuring Texas A&M coaches” this summer.

“There’ll be that school that would not attend if they partner with an outside state school,” Miles said, though not specifically mentioning the Wave. “Then we’re certainly not going to allow them to attend.”

I bet that catches on, too, especially in states where one school dominates local recruiting.  Like, hmmmm….

    Wouldn’t this have only a marginal impact, if Tulane is successful in bringing in top programs to New Orleans to coach with them? Obviously there will be some kids who won’t go to New Orleans and instead only go to LSU, missing out on Tulane coaches, but most will go to both if they can. With all the schools on the GA border and community ties to them, this seems to have even less impact in GA. But maybe I’m missing something.

      This classic Green Wave maneuver is a win-win for them. Now, instead of losing all bona fide recruits to LSU, they’ll be able to lose them to LSU and A&M

    Just to play with the concept, I don’t exactly see us partnering with Tech, nor do I see anybody else in state or out partnering with Tech. Will Rogers never met Paul the Johnson.
