Les Miles and his LSU Tigers enjoyed yet another win yesterday, this time at home against the conference foe Florida Gators, 17-6. It was a hard-fought battle that saw LSU once again display their defensive dominance a lot of the time, which has become a staple of their program in recent years.
At times, it was almost as if Miles’ defense was the proverbial hammer to Florida’s offensive nail.
But, whatever you do, please don’t explain it to Miles like that, as one reporter attempted to do in the press conference following yesterday’s win.
While, most of the time, Miles is one of the more fun-loving people in college football when a microphone is in front of him, there are times where you can incur his wrath, and that’s exactly what happened yesterday.
The reporter used a hammer and nail reference to describe the teams’ last two meetings, which included a Florida win last season, and Miles was none too happy about the apparent disrespect the reporter showed by describing the team on the losing end as a nail.
So, the Mad Hatter decided to let the reporter know just how much he did not care for his reference and, in turn, he made the reporter feel like a proverbial nail when he was done.
