Media Days: LSU



LSU
The coach is Les Miles.

  • He has arrived.

  • "Some things, we need to fix and put in the right perspective. We're working toward making real quality adjustments on our team."

  • "We're a better offense. We're stronger; we can run the ball better."

  • "I think we'll be a team that has a very talented, young group of me in there with some veterans that comes together quickly and plays one of the most ambitious schedules." (They're playing North Carolina and West Virginia out of conference.)

  • (Jabbering about his team. Too technical.)

  • On if this is an Alabama-Florida league: ``I don't have anxiety about that. My want is to prepare my team."

  • He likes his 2011 recruiting class. Shocking.

  • On Ken Adams, the former Auburn signee from Enterprise: ``He showed a toughness and an athleticism. He runs very fast, long arms. He's a very, very good defensive end. We expect him to play virtually every game if not start in most."

  • On not messing up games from the sideline: ``I scrutinize the coaching, me and others. In some of those situations, I was prepared for them but ... not the time constraints."

  • They're going to spend far more practice time this season perfecting their two-minute offense and clock-management stuff. "It's not just lip service; we really have changed."

  • On the oil spill: ``I hope the cap stays on. The people of Louisiana -- they handle it by being strong, standing tall, working hard. This is just another example of that. I hope that our government, and the powers that be, give us the power to affect the people. Just to help the people. If they do that, I think they'll be fine."

  • Great question: "Comment on the Western Division, the SEC, from Alabama all the way on down to the Mississippi schools."

  • Thanks, guys. See ya."

  • That's a wrap.

Dang it. I was wasting time messing up THT's Beasley post on the other thread.

shame on you, SC

12:31 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Man, I hope Les makes it. I here he has time management issues.

Doesn't Les have a daughter from South Carolina who attends App State?

12:32 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

THT, I was typing a novel about beer. You had plenty of time to get there! At least I got scottie b's "Kennesaw" post taken care of.

i was stuck with a customer who just doesn't seem to understand BEASLEY!!!

12:35 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Harrison, I appreciate the no-spit beer offer. I should make it to a few games this year, so hopefully can take you up on it.

Les isn't all that aware of time. This might take awhile

12:37 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Question for Les: You are predicted to finish fourth in the west, behind 3 coaches that have been at their school a shorter period than you have been at LSU. How do you feel about that?

Just told it'll be five more minutes or so.

What are the odds that Les will simply spike the ball and let the time run out?

12:41 PM  
Blogger scottie burns said...

nice work SC. thanks for the #89 luv.

How 'bout now? Is he there now? Huh?

Not quite yet, peeps.

My copy is in and I'm ready to roll ... as soon as we can get this show on the road.

Maybe this is what Les has been doing:

drive safely, JGT!

thanks for moving LSU below AU in the blog standings when you're done. That's where they belong.

12:48 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I see him!

Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Since Chizik doesn't measure success by W's and L's, I think I'm going to do that in my life as well.

Instead of measuring success with how happy I am in life, salary and stuff like that. I'm going to measure it by other things like facial hair and body funk. I will give up shaving and bathing and become a success by those standards.

Jay, there was a lotta love for Vandy coach in the paper this am :)

12:50 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Hat, meet Bucket.

12:51 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

he is not wearing his tinfoil hat. disappointment in my heart.

12:51 PM  
Blogger scottie burns said...

i heard the Vandy coach on (GASP!) Finebaum yesterday. PF was a jerk to him & then bashed him about how he was a clueless redneck for 10 minutes after the interview.

not sure what to think about the guy. he wasn't overly impressive on the radio....to me anyways.

12:51 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

"We're working toward making real quality adjustments on our team."

Which way are they adjusting the quality?

12:54 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

he is a clueless redneck for appearing on finebaum.
unless his appearance was only the sound of him punching finebaum in the face and paul hitting the floor, he didn't need to experience the worst 5 minutes of his life.

12:54 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Scottie,

Surely Finebaum wouldn't rip on someone right after they leave?

12:54 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Finebaum bashing clueless rednecks? Well, then 99% of his audience should be insulted, except that they're clueless, so they wouldn't know anyway.

12:55 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

wow, is it just me, or does he sound even duller than the Chiz so far?

12:57 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Oil spill question! Oil spill question! Oil spill question!

12:58 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

In re Finebaum ...

Wouldn't be surprised if he starts pimping for a candidate for that job ... say, one that has the same agent as he does.

Not that Finebaum is a worthless ho or anything.

1:00 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Nnnooo...

That should be read as sarcasm directly replying to JET, not to be read as excitement/terror.

1:03 PM  
Blogger Ephemeral said...

Also in re FB, I heard the after-bashing but didn't hear the interview. Paul sounded downright elitist. Since he's from Tenn, maybe he has a low redneck tolerance. Or maybe he's just annoying.

1:03 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Maybe? There's no maybe about it. PFinebaum is the most annoying individual on the airwaves.

1:06 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

jabbering about real quality as opposed to fake quality...

1:07 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Who is from Pewaukee, Wisc?

1:08 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Agreed, Norm. Here in Bammerham, we even have to deal with his occasional tv appearances on local news sports segments. I almost threw a brick at my tv a couple of nights ago.

1:09 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

mentions former AU signee ken adams as 6-5 250. AU backed off last year. went with lemonier instead of juco adams. would still be nice to have him.

1:10 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

I listen to the 740 guys out of the Gump simply for something familiar and a taste of home. I often find the show entertaining while not necessarily informative. Thankfully, I have an iPod chock-full of my favorite tunes that I can listen to rather than bear with PFinebaum. Either that, or I schedule con-calls.

1:13 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

lsu has off week (i.e. mcneese st.) the week before AU. chiz better complain to sec.

1:13 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

ask him if he can locate baton rouge on a map.

1:14 PM  
Blogger Ephemeral said...

Please stand and sing:

"young group of me in there with some veterans"

Man,is Les cocky or what?

1:18 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I did what I could, peeps.

1:19 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

JG, do you get Rev. Nutt next? I just watched him on the SEC feed. I think he was disappointed that nobody asked him to do any snake handling.

1:21 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Miles is the final guy.

I skipped Nutt and Dooley.

1:21 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Gotcha. Thanks for your work today!

1:23 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Nutt can be entertaining. Photos of him could be used in a danger of caffeine campaign.

1:23 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

can't say as I blame you, JGT. AU substance was far more important.

1:24 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Jerrell Powe just got asked if he voted for the "Landshark" for mascot. I wish they had asked him about Admiral Ackbar.

1:27 PM  
Blogger Suntiger said...

JGT you should have stayed for Dooley. UT finally got a class act.

1:28 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I don't know that I could stand to set through all of media days. It is a lot of talk for very little substance.

1:29 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Oooh, I'll bet that "all the way down to the Mississippi schools" comment rubbed some people the wrong way!

1:30 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

I think Pewaukee, WI may be me War Eagle Girl

1:33 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Is the blog messed up? How did Zee get back on the top feed? Does that mean I have to go back to commenting on Lee? Why is tommyd from pewaukee? Too many questions and not enough answers.

1:35 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Jay moved the Ziemba post to the top of the page, so I think we are supposed to be commenting there. Or maybe I am confused.

1:37 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

do a little work and come back to find y'all have abandoned Les and returned to Lee.


Good choice.

1:40 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

He moved it so we wouldn't have to have LSU above our Tigers!

Steve Posey!

Michael, when are you going to return to the other thread?

7:39 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Yes, I just did! how could you doubt?

9:48 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Doubt? I had no doubt. I just wanted to put it on my calendar.

10:37 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Is it a stardate calendary?

3:48 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

JAGR!

No, it's a Googley calendar.
