Coach Miles is the hero of the day and LSU beats Texas AM 19-7 as he remains Coach of the LSU Tigers. The whole Les Miles Saga was on the loose this past week in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, but Coach Miles has handle the whole situation like a gentleman and a professional person. Coach Miles went throughout the whole week not knowing if he would still be the head coach at LSU. I remember sitting in the Les Miles luncheon last monday afternoon and you could here a pen drop when Coach Miles walked into the room. The thing is LSU won satuday in complete fashion as they beat Texas AM 19-7 and it was not pretty for the AM team. I Uber on the side, and I drove some fans from Lawerence,Kansas to the airport who were sitting up in the 600 level, they witness the Texas AM fans throwing popcorn at the LSU Fans late in the forth quarter I guess they were just alittle upset of the outcome of the game. That was not the only thing fans were throwing, after LSU scored a few times the students kept throwing yellow towels that were rolled up in a ball, and one hit me right on the side of the head about 40 feet up in the stands.
Leonard Fournette ran for 159 yards and a touchdown. He finished the game owning LSU’s single-season rushing record at 1,741 yards, surpassing the mark of 1,686 yards set by Charles Alexander in 1977. Darius Guice had a big night as well 10 carries 73 yards and 1 td, and a 50 yard scamper, and returning kickoffs he had 2 kickoffs for 97 yards, and a 75 yard scamper as well. Guice is a true freshman and will make a big impact in the bowl game and the next up and coming years at LSU. QB Brandon Harris is coming along but needs to bring his passes down, and make some touch passes to the wideouts, and made a good throw to Fournette to lead him down field. If LSU does that in the bowl game and next year with Fournette paired with the running game, they can be very dominant.
Fournette said ,”These last three weeks will help this team grow and help us grow in life. I can say this has been one of the longest three weeks in my life. It was hard for everybody, referring to the speculation of Coach Miles. LSU players didn’t find out until word began circulating about Alleva’s announcement. Tigers senior right tackle Vadal Alexander said he found out when he got a text from his parents and just smiled.
Shaquille O’Neal even showed up for the LSU vs AM game hanging out on the sidelines rooting for Coach Miles, I even got a selfie with Superman and had a few conversations, it was a funtime on the sidelines for sure. Everyone in their mom wanted to take a pic with Shaq, they were coming from everywhere….lol. Shaq stood there and watch the game and look like he was having a great time.
Well, as of right now Coach Miles is preparing for their bowl game and that’s the way it’s suppose to be. Everyone came out to the game to cheer on the Tigers and Les Miles on senior night and the LSU Football Team did not disappoint as they dominated the game.
