Video: LSU’s Players Poured Grass On Les Miles’ Head For ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

We’ve reached the point where it’s no longer just enough to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – you have to do something over the top to gain recognition. Yesterday, we saw Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury put his own personal spin on it. LSU’s Les Miles appears to have done the same. Miles, who was famously caught on camera eating grass back during a 2010 game against...

LSU coach Les Miles said the QB competition is a long way from over

After two seasons of having a clear-cut starter, LSU has returned to a muddled situation at quarterback. But what is clear is Tigers head coach Les Miles is in no hurry to hand the job to anyone. The way he talked at LSU Media Day Sunday, the decision may not be known publicly until the season opener against Wisconsin on Aug. 30 - and maybe beyond. "I think the naming of a...

Photo: Les Miles Makes A Tiger Stadium Grass Smoothie For An Upcoming College Football Playoff Commercial

Two things are definitely true about LSU coach Les Miles—he occasionally enjoys eating grass from stadium fields, and he knows how to win football games. Miles will combine both of those in a new ESPN commercial for the College Football Playoff. We’re not sure of exactly how it will play out, but a few weeks ago LSU Football’s official Facebook page shared a photo from the...

The Next Breakout Star – Special Teams

LSU’s placekickers under Les Miles have been an often underrated strength of some “damn strong” football teams. From Colt David to Josh Jasper to Drew Alleman, Tiger fans have seen their fair share of clutch kicks (and some impeccably executed fakes) over the years. It’s been almost a year since a walk-on redshirt freshman from New Iberia named Colby Delahoussaye wrangled...

SEC Countdown: No. 6 LSU

It's hard to believe head coach Les Miles is beginning his 10th season at the helm of the LSU Tigers. It's been an historic period for this football team. For nine years in a row, Miles has led LSU to a bowl game, twice playing in the BCS National Championship Game--with one win, one loss. These Tigers, under Miles, also have enjoyed seven seasons of 10 wins or more, included...

LSU’s Defensive Tackle Trey Lealaimatafao ‘probably’ out for the season

Earlier it was reported that Freshman Defensive Tackle Trey Lealaimatafao suffered a serious arm injury during a dispute with another teammate.  Lealaimatafao had to have surgery to repair a severe injury (enough to tear through his bicep and expose bone).  LSU Tigers coach Les Miles called this injury extensive enough to ‘not play’ for the upcoming season.

Vince Howard From “Friday Night Lights” Will Be Playing For Les Miles At LSU

Vince was a damn good quarterback in season 5 of Friday Night Lights, so it’s no surprise that LSU recruited the former star of the Dillion Panthers. Though, if I’m being perfectly honest, I would much rather watch Vince play in Oregon’s explosive offense than LSU’s field goal kicking offense. Yes, I know Vince Howard doesn’t actually exist and that photo is actually...

SEC Preview 2014: Can Leonard Fournette and LSU’s young talent bring them unexpected glory?

Stop if you've heard this before: LSU was ravaged by NFL Draft in 2013, and was ravaged by the NFL Draft in 2014. Les Miles lost NINE players for the 2013 season to the NFL Draft, and lost a further NINE to the 2014 Draft. And there were others who left for the NFL Draft and didn't find a suitor because they had such an overrated and crappy 2013 (we see you, Anthony '...

LSU Freshman Defensive Tackle Trey Lealaimatafao Possibly Lost for the Season After Punching Glass

Trey Lealaimatafao has a lot going for him. Standing over 6-feet tall and weighing around 300 pounds he could have very well been an integral player for Les Miles on the defensive side of the ball this coming season. Now it appears he might have to take a medical redshirt because of the damage he did to his arm after punching through some glass.via 247SportsAccording to the The Times...

One of more intriguing teams in college football this fall should be LSU.  The Tigers could start true freshmen at both quarterback and running back in Brandon Harris and Leonard Fournette, respectively. LSU, a program that loses underclassmen to the NFL more than anyone else, will be one of the youngest teams in the country in 2014. They’ll be quite talented, too. Many expect...
