LSU’s head football coach Les Miles is known for a lot of things. He has a crazy Twitter feed, eats grass at Tiger stadium, and is known for eating taffy. Well, now we can add one more item to the list. Les Miles was reportedly cast in a SyFy channel movie called “Ghost Shark” as the town’s mayor. Unfortunately, due to Hurricane Isaac, production was delayed and he had scheduling issues (that whole being a head coach of an SEC football team thing). It sounds as if this movie is about a shark who is a ghost that goes around eating people. I guess it would be like “Jaws” if the shark were a ghost. As @ValleyShook pointed out, there may be a possibility that an audition tape may exist. If it does, it’s only a matter of time before the internet finds it. @LSUCoachMiles was originally cast in #GhostShark as the Mayor. Dead Serious. Hurricane Isaac pushed production and schedule forced him out. — Daniel Lewis (@dlewislsu) August 23, 2013

He had practiced his best Boss Hogg...

LSU head coach Les Miles will meet with the media early Friday evening following the Tigers' afternoon practice. TSD will have live coverage of the press conference inside.
It seems that any time that LSU does not win a National Title or is not in the conversation for a National Title, that Les Miles is the worst coach in the world, and should pay the penalty for his loss by not only getting fired, but spending the rest of his life carrying a 300lb millstone around his neck to remind him of the hurt that he impounded on the LSU faithful. Seriously....
Withe the 2013 season set to kickoff on Aug. 31 for the LSU Tigers, here's a season preview of five key questions facing Les Miles and co.
