Coach Les Miles hosted his first radio show of the football season at TJ Ribs on Acadian Thruway Wednesday night. LSU fans packed into the restaurant to hear what Coach Miles had to say about the upcoming season.
Miles addressed the bar fight right off the top of the show. He says the Tigers are ready to put it behind them, so they can focus on the season.
"I think the wanton desire to redirect this team, that responsibility is being taken on by everybody on it," Miles says.
Fans say that's exactly what they want to hear. "I think we should focus on the season since the first game is only ten days away," says LSU student Jon Cefalu.

"I cannot wait," Jon Cefalu, communication studies freshman said on Wednesday. "I've been this way since the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Last year was a little bit of a down year for us, but I have no doubt we're going to get back where we need to be."
Bob: What will be LSU's biggest strength on defense - the line or the defensive backfield?
Jon: The Db's are young, but very skilled and know what to do. Tyrann Mathieu is straight ballin, he will definitely be one of the big play makers on defense. I remember last year against North Carolina he leaped on one of the players and took em down like a jaguar. I was at the game and after that play I was like "sh*t! that guy is awesome, who was that guy? later I found out, and to my surprise I had a friend request from him waiting for me. After the game in the hotel, I got on to check my Facebook and saw a notification that said Tyrann Matheiu wants to be your friend and I was like what!!! OMG wow!!! I will definitely accept. I mean who wouldnt be excited about that.

Bob: What do you expect the Tigers overall record to be this year?
Jon: I think we will go 11-1 or even better 12-0 perfect season and then be up for a National Championship in the Big N.O. I hope we do have a perfect season when its all said and done. We need to show all the haters/media that we can have a perfect season too just like Bama -which I hate majorly and Auburn
Lastly I want to say GEAUX TIGERS!!!!! LETS GEAUX DUCK-HUNTIN!!! LETS FLIP THEM BIRDS LIKE CHUCK E CHEESE PIZZA DOUGH!!
