Down and Distance:
LSU Tigers coach Les Miles is not mincing words when it comes to telling it like it is about players he perceives as not taking care of their responsibilities to the football team. In fact, he isn’t saying anything at all.
The Twitter feed @SEC_Logo (not affiliated with the SEC) tweeted out a sign posted by Miles on the window of an office on campus:
The#8 LSU Tigers (10-2) are slated to face the the #14 Clemson Tigers (10-2) in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on December 31st, 2012, and Miles is letting all the players know in no uncertain terms that he expects their best effort, which apparently he has not been getting from the ten players he listed. It is unclear for how long Miles has observed these players behavior, whether it was season-long behavior, or just more recent as some of the players prepare to leave college for the NFL.
Special thanks to my friend, Greg Hayes (@GrgHys), a long-tiime LSU fan, for alerting me to another nugget from Coach Miles!

Meanwhile, your strength coach is calling you out. Ooopsy.
