Les Miles has a mentor

LSU coach Les Miles' decision to throw a pass with 8 seconds left against Auburn was roundly criticized by pretty much everyone. Fortunately for Miles it worked. Had the pass been incomplete and time expired, whiskey bottles would have rained down on him.

But it turns out that not everyone thought Miles' decision was crazy. Turns out Miles has a mentor who agreed with the call.


'So you're saying don't go for the field goal?'

Miles didn't name the mentor, but he did say that he once coached cornerbacks. The mentor studied the reactions of the Auburn corner on the play and said he was ready for a possession pass.

"That corner was ready for a possession pass," Miles quoted his mentor as saying. "He was ready for you to try to get just a few more yards to put yourself in position to kick."

No shit.
