LSU won a nail-bitter today against Mississippi State. A game that had no right to be as close as it was. In the press conference after the game LSU coach Les Miles was asked if “benched” quarterback Russell Shepard was a “flop.” His response is priceless.
I love what Deadspin had to say about this min-rant:
Les Miles goes through an emotional spectrum here that surpasses even the most skilled practioners of the dramatic arts—it’s forceful, angry, instructive, happy, endearing, eloquent, then a little angry again, then back to happy—some of these feelings are just plain unidentifiable. They are feelings only Les Miles feels. In two minutes, he careens wildly between full-on meltdown and a genuinely moving postgame oration. The man eats grass. Don’t try to put labels on him.
Sometimes during a game he calls plays that makes me wonder what the heck he is doing (see Bama game this year). But boring he is not!
