Les Miles entertains at SEC Media Days

Posted: Updated:
 SEC Media Days doesn't have the star power in terms of players that they have had in years past. But, a few coaches always entertain the crowd of reporters. LSU Coach Les Miles is always at the top of the list.

"Let's have some fun, what do you say? Whose phone is this?,” said Les Miles. “Just what I thought. Rebecca?"

That was only the beginning of the affable Les Miles at SEC Media Days. He is one of the most beloved figures in the SEC. He was even asked why he thinks media looks forward to speaking to him.

"That's like saying 'why do you like me so much?' I have no idea to be honest with you. Honesty, I think. The enjoyment of sport, I think we all share that," said Miles.

He is an intriguing man with many stories. We asked LSU players which story was their favorite, and one kept coming up.

"He is giving us our big game motivational speech. He likes to call it up and break it down: team on two. Sometimes, he will forget to say one two and just say team,” said tackle La’el Collins.

Then we asked Miles about it.

"That never happened. Think about it, right. Okay, Team, on two. Team! What the heck, right? One two. That's true,” explained the coach.

Amid the stand up routine, he did admit he has a young football. But, it is one with plenty of talent and they expect to contend in the SEC West.
