Les Miles Quotes:

“I just want to remind everybody that it’s Columbus Day. That all those of you that know Italians and like Italians are the people that might venture on to a ship and travel to explore and find new lands, this is your day. It’s not St. Patty’s Day. That’s a different day entirely.”

“The team is never about the single player. It’s not about the injury that keeps a star out of a certain game, and it’s not about the coach. It’s about the strength, and the abilities of the sum.”

“I am disappointed, but I am realistic too. When you put your defense back on the field repeatedly, the offense needs to do its job and the defense needs to get itself off the field.”

“Jamie Keehn, our second Australian punter. Again, you have to learn the language. You just can’t speak to those guys. You have to know how to speak Australian. … Australians have a higher voice. When you just speak regular English, it doesn’t quite get across. Of course, we’ve had experience with our Australians, so we’re pretty comfortable with adjusting our dialect so that it fits the ability to communicate.”

“Congratulations to the Auburn team and coach Malzahn. The piece for us was that we took some first and ten’s and could not get a third down conversion. We kept putting the defense on the field. We tackled, we played hard, but offensively we did not execute. We are a work in progress. Certainly a group of men that are committed to fixing things. But frankly, we did not get it done today.”

“There was a contact between a football player and a cheerleader, male I might add. That male cheerleader clipped me from the side as I was running full speed, or slower than full speed, but generally, in the upper quadrant of speed. And I hit the ground pretty good.”

“My brother was a year younger than I am and he was never in the home with me hardly at all, … My mom had to take him to every school there possibly was to get him some education. He ended up first in Columbus, Ohio, for grade school, then went to a high school for the deaf and Galludet in Washington.”

“This is what you should do, let it rest. I’m playing football for LSU. I’m preparing for R-Kansas. I’m preparing for the next game, and the next game after that.”
