During a coaching career spanning more than three decades, Les Miles has established himself as one of the most fascinating figures in all of sports. Regarded almost as much for his press conferences antics as his on the field accomplishments, Les’ reputation precedes itself. The Les Is More Podcast will quickly become a must-listen for anybody who loves college football. Combining a first-hand insider perspective with a distinctively personal and quirky approach, this weekly offering will cover the latest storylines on the college football landscape, as well as anecdotes and intimate experiences shared by Coach Miles, his family and the various figures he’s befriended throughout the years. For those in the know, this podcast isn't merely a part of the conversation surrounding college football — it is the conversation.
In the third installment of Les is More, Coach Miles goes long on the 2007 national championship–winning Tigers. Joined by podcast-regulars Smacker Miles and John Wangler, Les discusses his memorable return to Tiger Stadium last weekend (3:00), and also breaks down LSU’s upset victory over No. 10 Auburn (9:10). He then answers some questions from listeners (14:00), including one about LSU’s disappointing loss in the 2012 national title game (15:54). Coach’s special guest this week is Jacob Hester (21:58), the captain of the 2007 Tigers, who reminisces about memorable moments from that season, and who also discusses the only time Coach Miles ever questioned his judgment. Finally, Les wrap things up with John and Smacker, reviewing the week that was in college football (50:55), as well as offering up a few predictions for this Saturday (58:39).
