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... Can't say THANK YOU enough to UA administration & support to keep our staff together when others come calling to hire away. #WPS #GoHogsGo — Bret Bielema (@BretBielema) February 11, 2013 #B1GCATS WIN! — Pat Fitzgerald (@coachfitz51) February 2, 2013 Today was a great Signing Day for our program!!! These 20 players are going to be a part of something special here at Duke!!! #goduke — David Cutcliffe (@DavidCutcliffe) February 7, 2013 Bleh. Thank God though for the fake field goal calling, grass eating, hat wearing LSU head coach.  Although never a frequent tweeter (just over 600 in 4 years), Miles has recently taken to live tweeting major sporting events instead of merely complimenting other athletic programs at LSU.  The only problem is it looks like Les hasn't quite figured out Twitter, tweeting at himself throughout yesterday's Lakers/Heat game where he was in attendance... @lsucoachmiles — Les Miles (@LSUCoachMiles) February 10, 2013 Hopefully Coach Miles soon figures out this Twitter thing so these observations and comical misspellings ("tit defensive game?") are shared with his 100,000 followers instead of being locked away in a conversation with himself.  Of course, this is Les Miles, so maybe he was trying to have a conversation with himself all along...
