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 Miles is joined once again by his daughter Smacker and close friend and former Michigan quarterback, John Wangler. Les takes a shot at answering questions from fans — including one about whether he ever considered coaching at Ohio State early in his career (20:10). He and his cohosts then look back at last Saturday’s insane Bedlam shootout between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State (30:03), and touch on the surprising defeats of the Buckeyes (10:02) and Penn State (12:05), and what the losses mean for each team in the race for this season’s College Football Playoff. Les also takes a moment to remember his father, and tells a great story about how his dad got him to stand up to a neighborhood bully (2:52). Finally the gang makes their predictions for this weekend’s slate of big-time matchups, including Georgia vs. Auburn and Notre Dame vs. Miami (46:18).
