The Les Miles Era appears to be over in Baton Rouge. Some will say it was time. Others will say it wasn’t. One thing that isn’t in dispute: Les was one odd man. Words will be expended. For now, we’ll leave our tribute to his tenure in images.
May his verbal tics and halfback tosses live on at some down-on-its-luck Big Ten school.
LES KNEW HOW TO CLAP ALL ALONG. HE JUST DIDN’T WANT TO DING HIS HAND ON THAT RING.
LES WAS ALL OVER THE HARLEM SHAKE CRAZE.
YES, LES MILES LIKED TO SAMPLE THE GRASS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY.
THAT ONE TIME SOMEONE GAVE LES A HULA HOOP.
THAT ONE TIME LES KISSED A PIG.
IT RAINS OUTSIDE TIGER STADIUM. LES HAD A MANSERVANT FOR THAT.
LES KNEW HOW TO LIVEN UP A PRESS CONFERENCE.
SOMETIMES, LES JUST NEEDED TO CLEAN THE PIPES.
LES OFFERED THE OCCASIONAL WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
LES ALSO OFFERED POIGNANT ADVICE.
