Profile of Les Miles and the Alabama Game

1

Wright Thompson wrote a remarkable profile of Les Miles leading up to and including this year's game against Alabama. It's well worth your time.

SEC Might Have Its First Female Football Player

19

Former LSU goalkeeper Mo Isom is going to try out as a kicker for the football team, which would make her the SEC's first female player if she makes the team. I don't know much about her other than that she's 6'1" and a well-known and well-liked athlete on campus. As with most soccer players who try to become football kickers, I imagine the biggest issue would not be distance but rather accuracy. I also have doubts about how much action she'd see given that A) she'd have only one year of eligibility, B) second team All-SEC K Drew Alleman is back, and C) backup K James Hairston was a recruited player and took care of kickoffs last year. It'd still be a cool story if she makes the team, even if she only ends up kicking an extra point or two at the end of blowouts. Somehow, it just feels right that Les Miles could be the coach who helps this trail get blazed.

A Little Lunchtime Reading

5

Your task if you choose to accept it: read this article about Les Miles's weekly conference call comments and try not to make a sacrifice to the grammar gods in penance for reading it. Is it just me, or does it sound like someone makes a script for Miles by taking normal coaching non-answers and running it randomly through five different languages in a translator before going back to English?

The most bizarre rumor. Ever.
