Les Miles bans players from bars after TE Dillon Gordon was stabbed

Les Miles

LSU tight end Dillon Gordon was released from the hospital Tuesday after being treated for stab wounds he suffered during an altercation at a bar early that morning. As a result, Tigers head coach Les Miles has banned his players from the bar scene.

“I’m cutting it off,” Miles told reporters, according to The Advocate. “It’s just not worth it. The reason you go out is because you want social interaction. Social interaction can take place at home, at class, can take place at a number of places. You don’t have to go to a fight night club.”

Good luck enforcing that policy.

Fortunately, Gordon suffered non-life threatening cuts and was never considered to be in serious condition. The incident took place at an establishment called Reggie’s Bar, and Baton Rouge police spokesman Lt. Don Kelly later said calling the injuries stab wounds “might be an exaggeration.”

Gordon, a three-year starter, sent a couple of tweets shortly after the frightening scene took place.

As we were reminded when TCU star quarterback Trevone Boykin got into a fight last week (video here), nothing good ever happens at a bar or nightclub after midnight. Miles has the right idea, but we highly doubt he can get all of his players to respect the new policy.
