During a coaching career spanning more than three decades, Les Miles has established himself as one of the most fascinating figures in all of sports. Regarded almost as much for his press conferences antics as his on the field accomplishments, Les’ reputation precedes itself. The Les Is More Podcast will quickly become a must-listen for anybody who loves college football. Combining a first-hand insider perspective with a distinctively personal and quirky approach, this weekly offering will cover the latest storylines on the college football landscape, as well as anecdotes and intimate experiences shared by Coach Miles, his family and the various figures he’s befriended throughout the years. For those in the know, this podcast isn't merely a part of the conversation surrounding college football — it is the conversation.
This week, Coach is recording at the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys, in Frisco, Texas. He is joined once again by former Michigan quarterback John Wangler and daughter Smacker Miles, a longtime college-sports aficionado. The three cover a wide range of topics, including the remarks that Cam Newton made last week to a female reporter [1:50], Baker Mayfield getting a taste of his own medicine [11:48], and LSU’s bounce-back victory over Florida in the Swamp [38:33]. Les also catches up with SEC commissioner Greg Sankey in a discussion that delves into recruiting bylaws and much more [16:26]. Finally, Coach answers a few listener questions (good work on those, by the way), and tells several personal stories from his life and career, before finishing things off with predictions for this weekend’s games [41:37]. You’ll, uh, want to stick around for those. Trust us.
