A coach has truly reached cult status in the world of college football when his program sends out a tweet stating he can be found rappelling off the sides of tall buildings, and the response is, Just another Thursday in Baton Rouge.
Thats pretty much the realm Les Miles, LSUs outlandish quote (or misquote) machine, finds himself in.
Theres very little shock value to his actions anymore.
So when Miles, 59, chose to suspend himself from a 24-story building in the name of charity the Over the Edge for Adoption campaign on Thursday, there was little media hubbub other than a rush to grab photosvideos. Here is one result:
At the very least, his headline-grabbing behavior is supporting a good cause.
The site of the event was One American Place in Baton Rouge.
As of 1 p.m. CT, the rappelling efforts of Miles and others supporting the charity organization raised nearly 65,000.
Now, if only the organization could figure out a way to benefit from Milesdancing skills.

Coaching in college is tough. At best you can lock up a player that can start for you for four seasons and that is only if he i good enough to start as a freshman. A lot of players are not that good meaning coaches have to find replacements every two or three years if not sooner.
