Western Kentucky Coach Willie Taggart Goes Les Miles, Eats LSU Grass (Video)
What exactly is it that has made LSU the best team in the nation this year? Is it their defensive line, which does a tremendous job of getting after the quarterback? Is it their secondary, which is led by the Honey Badger himself? The offense doesn’t seem all that spectacular, but it has certainly been explosive enough at times. But maybe — just maybe — the fact that Les Miles likes to eat Louisiana grass has given the Tigers a boost. Western Kentucky head coach Willie Taggart was willing to test that theory on Saturday when he sampled some upon entering Tiger Stadium. Check it out:
Perhaps Taggart thought a few blades would help his team pull off a legendary upset. If you see guys like Les Miles and Novak Djokovic doing it, it’s probably worth a try. Taggart confirmed on Twitter after the game that he did indeed sample some grass but said he didn’t like it. At least he was accepting of other cultures and kept an open mind.
