Les Miles Outback Bowl Press Conference

On Sunday Les Miles and Iowa's Kirk Ferentz had their first press conference leading up to the 2014 Outback Bowl.

Here is a sample of what Les Miles had to say:

On getting Anthony Jennings ready for his first start:
“We really focused on him running drills as opposed to necessarily have practices and plays. We put a little bit more burden on him in terms of preparing to handle the huddle, handle the play call. That, besides the physical execution of the play, has made a little bit more burden that much.”

On how he would describe LSU football:
“I think the concept is the same as any collegiate football team. You’re coming to school to get a degree and it’s important to our guys that they graduate and they put themselves into a position to have success beyond football. I think people that come to LSU want to play at a very high level, want to play for the national championship, and in this instance, a championship. I think there are some similarities between our program and all the other well-run programs in this country.”

On the opportunity for a fourth straight 10-win season:
“I think there are some seniors in there that really see that, feel that, and want that. I think the motivation for playing this game, if you’re a competitor, is playing a quality team. Victory is really motivation enough. You have to play well; you have to play smart, play tough. You have to be called upon to show all the talents and skills you have.”
