Les Miles has firm warning for LSU players considering Lambeau Leap against Wisconsin
The LSU Tigers face the Wisconsin Badgers at Lambeau Field on Saturday, so naturally, a few LSU players thought they’d have some fun with it if they scored a touchdown.
Several players, including punt returner and cornerback Tre’Davious White, said they’d perform the Lambeau Leap if they scored a touchdown in the game, no matter what the punishment was for doing it. By NCAA rule, it would be a 15-yard penalty, though the players expected coach Les Miles to have something else in mind.
“Definitely. I’m pretty much just open to whatever punishment that’s going to come my way Monday,” White said, via Ross Dellenger of the Advocate. “It’s going to be bad, but I feel like, it’s just a dream of mine. Whatever Coach Miles has in store, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be some bad things. I’m ready to do it. It’s my last year. I want to make some memorable moments.”
So, coach, what would you do to them if they did?
Les: "I promise you, that if anybody does the Lambeau Leap, they will end up with their thumb out looking for a ride home."

Alrighty then. That’s pretty persuasive. Perhaps Les is just aware of the hazards of the Lambeau Leap. Frankly, at this point, I hope White scores a touchdown on Saturday now. I want to see how committed he is to defying his coach.
