“I think it’s fundamental. I think it’s necessary. We’re going to comply. We’re going to be very cooperative. That’s really all I can say.”
When that’s the lead quote from Les Miles following a discussion of the Willie Lyles situation last night… it tells you that the coach kept his lips buttoned on the subject. Miles spoke to reporters prior to meeting with a Tiger booster club in New Orleans.
Asked if he’s worried the NCAA’s investigation into the alleged street-agent might distract his team from its opener against Oregon — a team that might also be distracted by an NCAA investigation into Lyles — Miles said: “I worry about distractions that are wide in scope. That’s just one of them.”
In Glenn Guilbeau’s piece for Gannett Louisiana, Miles goes on to discuss the high expectations for his Tiger team this year.
Thanks to the Lyles-related questions the NCAA is asking both Oregon and LSU, we at MrSEC.com believe it’s time to officially dub the teams’ September 3rd opener at Cowboys Stadium the “Willie Bowl.”
