After all the offseason drama, just about everyone who follows LSU football can use a laugh.
Here’s something that’s at least sure to make you smile: A link to the commerical LSU coach Les Miles did for ESPN “College Game Day” earlier this summer. Here’s another link to a longer video segment of Miles instructing ESPN’s Erin Andrews on the finer points of grass chewing.
Just in case you’re wondering, Miles did the commercial long before August practice and the accompanying troubles began. He taped it on the University of Southern California campus in Los Angeles.
Here’s something that might make you frown: former LSU and new Maryland offensive coordinator Gary Crowton tells the Baltimore Sun that it wasn’t his offense at LSU.
Stewart Mandel of si.com writes that to beat LSU, Oregon will have to win a matchup it lost against Auburn in the BCS championship game: its offensive line vs. LSU’s defensive front.
Miles’ response: he’s right. It was, and is, the LSU offense.
Ken Goe of The Oregonian, the daily newspaper in Portland, Ore., sounds a refrain that will be familiar to LSU fans: weary of all the offseason issues at Oregon, he’s ready for some football.
