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.
On Episode 4 of Les Is More, Coach Miles is once again joined by his daughter Smacker, and close friend and former Michigan quarterback, John Wangler — who has a few thoughts on Big Blue’s loss to Penn State last Saturday(1:50). The three discuss last weekend’s other big games, including Notre Dame’s annihilation of USC (21:14), as well as which current one-loss teams have the best shot at the College Football Playoff (25:40). Les then takes a call from LSU alum and NFL lineman Tyson Jackson (32:07). The topics they touch on include Coach’s unusual recruiting methods, and what the Tigers went through during Hurricane Katrina. Finally, Les looks toward next Saturday’s big matchups, with he, John and Smacker making their predictions for Penn State at Ohio State (48:45) and much more.
