Les Miles has classic response for reporter who asks about 2015 QB outlook (Video)
LSU has won back-to-back games since being blown out by Auburn earlier this month, but its quarterback situation is no clearer now than it was then. Les Miles has used both freshman Brandon Harris and sophomore Anthony Jennings throughout the season and really hasn’t named a starter.
What is his plan for 2015?
As you might expect, Miles has enough to worry about with upcoming games against No. 3 Ole Miss and No. 4 Alabama. He’s not thinking about next year’s quarterback situation, and he reacted accordingly when a reporter asked him about it after LSU’s 41-3 victory over Kentucky.
“We’re gonna have to play that position next year too?” Miles asked sarcastically. “Damn, I thought we were gonna get away with it, you know? S—, next year too. God, we’re just trying to beat Ole Miss next week. Damn, I don’t know.”
Miles then said he and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will “probably give some thought to that sometime” while smirking and looking around the room. He was obviously annoyed with what was a pretty dumb question.
Imagine if something like that was asked to Nick Saban? Given some of the past exchanges the Alabama coach has had with the media, it’s safe to assume he wouldn’t have been as friendly as Miles. If you ask me, Les let that guy off easy.
