When Katy Perry made her much ballyhooed, critically acclaimed appearance as celebrity guest picker on “College GameDay” a few weeks back, she cracked a joke about how LSU Tigers fans smell like corn dogs. Apparently, this is something of a long-running SEC joke. According to LSU Super Fan, there is an entire back story about...Read More

LSU hosts College GameDay this weekend for its match-up with No. 3 Ole Miss, and speculation is rampant as to who the guest picker will be. When asked about the show, head coach Les Miles took the opportunity to call out those who have incorrectly picked against LSU in the past, including ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit.
#LSU‘s Les Miles tweaks Kirk: “Herbstreit made a wrong pick....
ESPN’s College GameDay is headed to Baton Rouge this week to cover LSU’s big-time matchup with Ole Miss, and you can bet that the network will not be picking pop superstar Katy Perry as its celebrity guest picker. Perry, if you remember, poked fun at Tigers fans for smelling like corn dogs - which until her GameDay appearance, had been more of an SEC inside joke. Either way...
American Heritage Plantation has produced some of the best college football talents in South Florida recently. The list of multi-offer athletes grows by each passing week it seems.
Add 2016 TE Nick Eubanks to the list. With just a year of football under his belt, he’s already been offered by LSU and Miami. The 6-foot-6, 210-pound tight end talked about the Canes.

Sure, LSU is a disappointing 2-2 in SEC play through two months, but just because reporters are looking ahead to 2015 doesn't mean The Mad Hatter has to...God I love that man.
(AP) - Statistics might not tell the whole story about how good Mississippi's defense has been. But it's certainly a good place to start.
The third-ranked Rebels will face a stiff challenge Saturday night when they visit improved No. 24 LSU, which is coming off a dominant victory.
Ole Miss (7-0, 4-0 SEC) is giving up 10.6 points per game to lead the FBS, and its 15 interceptions...

After LSU’s dominant 41-3 win over Kentucky, Tigers head coach Les Miles was asked if he and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron had thought about who would start at quarterback next season. As most of you will know, coaches don’t like to deal in the hypothetical. LSU still has four games this season to play with the current options at quarterback.
While most coaches – Nick Saban...
LSU head coach Les Miles dropped some not mama-approved language during his post-game press conference on Saturday. The Mad Hatter was asked by a reporter at the conference if "Do you and (LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron)put any thought at all in to next year at (quarterback)?Miles response was legendary.Miles might have to sit down with the president of LSU over that...
LSU has won back-to-back games since being blown out by Auburn earlier this month, but its quarterback situation is no clearer now than it was then. Les Miles has used both freshman Brandon Harris and sophomore Anthony Jennings throughout the season and really hasn’t named a starter. What will he do in 2015? As you...Read More
Les Miles had fun with this reporter's stupid, silly question about LSU's quarterback position for next season.
LSU head coach Les Miles is a funny guy. The Mad Hatter has a gigantic personality, and when he decides to joke around about something, he’s absolutely hilarious. An example of that came on Saturday night after LSU’s 41-3 win over Kentucky. A reporter asked Miles if he has put any thought into who will play quarterback for the Tigers in 2015. Miles responded by sarcastically...

I hadn’t really talked about just how LSU is coming along as a team and x’s and o’s in a couple of weeks, so I thought I’d do that now.
Miles tells reporters to “have a great day” before LSU beat Tennessee to win the SEC in 2007.
This last game was Les Miles 100th win at LSU. Maybe it’s appropriate that we didn’t beat Mississippi St. in the last second. It just...
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Les Miles has seen LSU win 100 games in all sorts of ways during his decade coaching the Tigers.
So while he praised the power running and clutch defense his team used to outlast Florida last weekend, Miles wasn't inclined to hint at whether Kentucky should expect more of the same this Saturday.
''My kind of game is any game that the Tigers win...

LSU football coach Les Miles promised on his radio show Wednesday night that one of his two quarterbacks will start Saturday at Florida. And that is about as much as he will reveal until Saturday.
True freshman Brandon Harris started the 41-7 loss at Auburn last week, and struggled, completing 3 of 14 passes for 58 yards. Sophomore Anthony Jennings, who struggled the week before...
In the beginning of the season, it was unsure who would be starting under center for the Tigers and after 4 weeks into the 2014 campaign, coach Les Miles has decided to name Freshman Brandon Harris his starter over Jennings for their upcoming game against defending SEC Champs Auburn.
Albeit the game was against New Mexico State, but Harris shined completing 11 of 14 passes for...
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU coach Les Miles has announced that true freshman Brandon Harris will start at quarterback against Auburn on Saturday.
The coach said Monday, ''It stands to reason that (Harris) will get the first snaps in the next game. He has done the things we have asked him to do. He has made quality decisions with the ball.''
Anthony Jennings had started...

After five games, the ongoing quarterback battle at LSU has taken a major shift. During a media session today, head coach Les Miles announced that freshman Brandon Harris will start Saturday’s crucial SEC West game at Auburn.
Miles says #LSU improved in the win over NMSU. Miles on Harris: “Gave us a great spark. Team played well around him.”

In an expected move, coach Les Miles announced Wednesday that Anthony Jennings should start at quarterback for LSU against New Mexico State on Saturday.
But the coach left the door open for a change.
“I think Anthony Jennings will take the first snap,” Miles said. “Right now it looks pretty forthcoming, but, again, it could change.”
Jennings, a sophomore from Georgia,...
Anthony Jennings had started every game for LSU this season, but following an impressive showing by freshman Brandon Harris late in the Tigers’ contest against Mississippi State, many thought Les Miles would make a switch.
It doesn’t appear the LSU coach will be, though.
“We will play them in a like fashion that we have in the past,” Miles said on the SEC coaches teleconference...
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU coach Les Miles, a former offensive lineman at Michigan, knows as well as anyone how much of a problem the Tigers have with their blocking up front.
After reviewing film of the 17th-ranked Tigers 34-29 loss to Mississippi State, Miles declined to single out his offensive linemen for poor performances, but he didn't absolve them, either.

This isn’t the main thing I’m going to write about, but I heard it after I published my blog about the LSU-Wisconsin game. Since Les Miles took over at LSU, the Tigers are 22-21 when trailing in the fourth quarter, the only team in the FBS to have a winning record during that span (apparently, they don’t count the last-second loss to Clemson as “trailing in the fourth quarter”...
Nobody’s 100 percent sure about what LSU head football coach Les Miles thinks about star freshman running back Leonard Fournette. One week, Miles will compare him to NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan. A few weeks later, Miles will say that there’s no reason for Fournette to think about winning the Heisman Trophy, and that people have “unrealistic expectations” about the freshman...
LSU coach Les Miles said Wednesday Ethan Pocic will start his second consecutive game at center. Miles also hinted that Elliott Porter would not play.
Porter, who started 12 of 13 games at center last year, did not play in the Tigers' 28-24 victory against Wisconsin last week. Miles did not say why Porter is being held out.
"Ethan Pocic will start at center; I don'...
Tim Miles is the head basketball coach at the University of Nebraska.
He is not Les Miles, and quite frankly, he’s a bit tired of being mistaken as the LSU football coach.
Why the mixup? Miles (Tim, not Les) has the distinction of owning the Twitter handle “@coachmiles,” which apparently has been enough for LSU followers to flood his feed with tweets intended for the Mad...
