Les Miles, roving reporter


If we ever revisit The Montana Project in some form or fashion, I know whom I’m going to ask to conduct interviews.

The least interesting advertising campaign in the world

Between this and this…

… it appears Dos Equis is going all in on using former college football coaches to hawk its wares.  Bold strategy, Cotton.

Hell hath no fury like a Hat scorned.

Shorter Les Miles:  At least when my teams stopped winning the West, I kept my dignity.

Another beginning of a bee-you-tee-full friendship

Purely from a blogging perspective, 2018 is already showing promise.

One such landing place would be at Arizona, which just canned Rich Rod over a sexual harassment claim.

You really can’t make this shit up.

Revenge is a dish best served on the Internet.

Les Miles has a podcast now.  Judging by this, I may need to give it a listen.

Evidently there’s nothing in his buyout provisions preventing him from throwing a little shade in LSU’s direction.

At least he didn’t raise his hand to ask.

If you weren’t tuned in to ESPN’s MegaCast last night, you missed one of the great debut moments in broadcast history.

Les Miles, natch.

Keeping the mic live all the way to the head is what really elevates the whole deal.

“I’m going to be in media and in a number of different places,” he said, “and I’m going to have a blast.”

He’s got time on his hands, so Les Miles is going to hit the broadcast trail, at least for one season.

“I’m a guy who knows a lot about football,” Miles said. “Certainly the situations and adjectives that describe college football are going to be something I’m easily accustomed to. I’ll be able to tell you after the first quarter what thoughts are going through the coach’s mind.

Adjectives are awesome.  I just wish somebody would pair him with Spurrier and let them call a game together.


UPDATE:  There’s all kinds of media.


UPDATE #2:  That didn’t take long.

SEC Network’s traveling pre-game show, SEC Nation presented by AT&T, is back for its fourth season on Saturday, Sept. 2, in a special three-hour edition (9 a.m. – noon ET) from Arlington, Texas, site of the Advocare Classic where the Florida Gators will face off with the Michigan Wolverines for both teams’ season openers. The show marks the first time SEC Nation has opened the season from a neutral site game and only the second time the show has aired from a neutral site city during the regular-season.

The show will include live reports, analysis and features surrounding all the Week One SEC football action…

Longtime LSU head coach Les Miles will serve as a guest analyst for the season opener. In addition to his extensive SEC background, Miles was a player and coach at Michigan. Miles’ former running back, Derrius Guice, will be featured in an in-depth story reported by Rutledge. Also, former South Carolina and longtime Florida head coach Steve Spurrier, and additional guests, will stop by the set throughout the telecast.
