LSU head coach Les Miles addressed the media on Monday during his weekly press conference and said that he submitted tape to the SEC league office on late hits on Leonard Fournette from the Florida game. Per The Advocate:
quote:

‘The whistle needs to be blown': Miles expressed discontent following the 35-28 win against Florida last Saturday about defenders throwing sophomore RB Leonard Fournette to the ground after his forward progress was stopped. He said he’s worried about player safety and has sent in clips to the league office for review. “There’s good, open dialogue,” Miles said.

How about McElwain turning in the film on Fournette throwing a haymaker at a defender's head?

I see the crybaby attitude is not just limited to the fans at LSU.

How about also turning in films of countless holdings of UF Oline on our DEs and LBs that were not called for a single time throughout the night!

How about Les turning in film on block in back of Dion on UF punt return for TD and Dupre being slaughtered in end zone by UF defender?

There were many times when the refs did blow the whistle once forward progress was stopped but the gang-tackle attempts continued for several second past the whistle. They just couldn't throw him down, so maybe the refs thought they were letting up, when they were really just boys trying to tackle a grown damned man.

You mean the strong stiffarm he gave when being drug down by his facemask?

I hope he submitted the clip of Leonard taking a swing on Maye.

Oh yeah good job tip off the officials on what not to call against our next SEC opponent. Oh guess who that is.

From what I recall there was at least two occasions that 3+ Florida defenders were driving Leonard 15-20 yards into the backfield before the refs made any effort to blow the whistle and stop the play for forward progress. That's completely inexcusable and a callous disregard for player safety

How pathetic on UF's part. You constantly try to punk a guy out and he still makes you his bitch.

Good job Les. If you do not stand up for your players, no one will.
