Played poker at a table just a few feet away from Les Miles's poker table last night, Kathy sat right by his side. They stayed for just a while. I absolutely love Les Miles, so it was a blast sitting so close to the Coach and his wife, they were a joy.
I noticed that Les couldn't help himself from staring at the HD screen several times when ESPN was interviewing NFL players about the Superbowl. Thought that was funny, this man really loves football and loves his wife, for they both had his attention.
The saddest day for me is when Les Miles retires from LSU for I've grown to love everything about our LSU coach. Les is the best thing to ever happen to LSU for many reasons. People across America have become fans of college football due to his coaching style being so entertaining. But Les is much more than that, he consistently recruits the best players and consistently competes with and beats the best teams.
Even the great Saban at Alabama hasn't had to deal with the tough scheduling that Les Miles continuously has to deal with every year. But you hear no complaining from Miles, he shows no fear. I love him for that and for being a great coach to his players, and a great family man. Les remains a solid decent and humble human being, which you seldom see from those making it big in their profession.
As for losing the national title, get over it, it happens. The New England Patriots coach went undefeated but lost in the Superbowl. Fans still appreciate their great coach, LSU fans should definitely learn to appreciate ours. Hope we have you for a while coach, stay healthy, we love you.
