Les Miles met with the media after LSU's 16-14 loss to Wisconsin on Saturday and said that offensive lineman Josh Boutte might not of known the play was over when he delivered a late hit on D'Cota Dixon. Per ESPN:
quote:

"I grabbed him right away," Miles said. "I'm going to have to see the film, but he's an offensive lineman in protection and what happens downfield sometimes is you're protecting beyond the play. ... Again, I'll have to check this, but it's very logical that he did not even know [Dixon] had gone down and was just running [with the ball]."

NCAA rules stipulate that conference offices must review all "flagrant personal foul ejections," so the SEC will look at the Boutte hit and determine whether any additional discipline is needed.

Boutte was not made available to reporters after the game.

"He's not a malicious guy," Miles said. "I just can't imagine that he saw him go down and then made it back."
Here is video of the late hit:

Who's gonna review miles, he's the one that did't show up for the game. The college football bus has left and Miles missed it.

Did the wisc dline illegally signal a snap count? why did the oline jump the play before this play?

Punish him and then put him on the kickoff team. He's be the ONLY LSU player making hits on kickoffs and kickoff returns.

My knee-jerk reaction was to crucify him, I admit. I never questioned intentional or not and still don't, but...he's human. Dismissal from the team is not warranted on this and this alone. Let the punishment fit the crime, don't ruin a man's future over a mistake. Thank God the Wisky player wasn't hurt.

I agree with the majority, best hit all day after the games worse play of the day, the interception by an over matched qb who can't play in big games. Should have recovered the fumble though and returned for a TD.

I am a die hard LSU fan, but what Boutte did was a really cheap shot. He knew the play was over

Why wouldn't he try to recover a "fumble" then? BS. He knew it was over.

I honestly don't think he knew the play was over. It's easy to make that call when you see every angle on TV, but the guy immediately got up and ran the other way with it, and had what looked to be blockers leading for him.

Boutte needs to find himself another school. That hit was a sign of pure trash.

I think he was confused about the play. As a matter of fact, he was confused all day. There were several plays that he was facing Brandon Harris instead of looking downfield.

Boutte has always had a problem distinguing colors. He thought that was his QB who just threw the game winning pass. Testosterone and Adrenaline.

There's nothing to "review." That was a cheap-shot, plain and simple.

When I was watching the play live it appeared that he just didn't know the play was dead as there were several Wisky players running wth the Dback that looked like they didn't know either and might have been looking to make a block. Its football so I'd give him the benefit of the doubt. I will say though that his behavior after the play didn't seem like someone who was confused about the play and/or why he was being ejected. He seemed to be acting somewhat guilty. Maybe if you are the defense and you get a pick don't have your celebrations look like a dash to the end zone and yu won't get your arse handed to you by mistake, or otherwise.

If you think it is a bad thing that should not be on the field don't talk about it. It gives it merit. Penalties for rough hits should not be replayed. I'm not saying this is that, just if it is...don't give it the time of day.
