He was obviously trying to suppress rage. He was pissed at a reporter for crapping on an otherwise special day for R. Shepard. In his rage, he realized he was detracting the positive attention that should have gone to his seniors on their night. I don't fault him one bit for rambling a bit.
I once saw an interview in which a reporter said something derogatory about a Florida player, & Urban Meyer just flat told the reporter: "If that was MY son, we'd be going at it right now!" My opinion of Meyer dramatically improved after I heard him stand up for the kid that way. Whatever a parent of a recruit might think of Miles or Meyer as a football mind, you can't ask for much more that this in a guy who's going to mentor your kid.
