Eccentric and entertaining LSU head coach Les Miles joined Twitter four years ago. Coaches on Twitter isn't necessarily an exciting thing as they have to be much safer and more generic in what they tweet versus athletes or regular joes and schmoes like you and me. (Just imagine if Larry Eustachy could Twitpic those party photos.) Most of the time it's just university propaganda, rainbows and sunshine, exclamation points and hashtags. For example...

If you look deep enough though you will...
Tevin Lawson committed to LSU very early in the 2013 recruiting process, but come signing day the talented defensive tackle and the Tigers elected to go in different directions. Coach Les Miles and his staff offered Lawson the chance to grey shirt and enroll in January rather than August, but the Denham Springs standout has elected to pass on that opportunity.
Johnny Manziel continues his parade of fun, literally, at Mardi Gras.
How can you not like this kid? Still living life the way he plays football!
I’m sure that this, along with him throwing up the Hook ‘Em Horns sign at a concert, will once again upset a few people, but really Manziel isn’t doing anything different than 99% of other college kids.
