Attempting To Understand LSU Coach Les Miles
Trying to understand Les Miles? It’s complicated.
The man has been called “Mad Hatter”, “Wizard”, “The Hat”, and everything positive and negative adjective in the book.
The most winning coach in LSU football history sat down with Brett Michael Dykes of the New York Times to discuss a range of topics. From Miles’ thoughts on LSU fans, to what his last meal would look like, to his distinct style of wearing hats, and to his unique clapping, Dykes attempts to leave no stone unturned.
Have you ever tried to clap like Miles and hurt yourself?
“You can’t be soft-handed; it has to be an aggressive clap,” he said before a demonstration. “You keep your fingers out so that you don’t get them caught in between, you know what I’m saying? If you get them in between here” — he gestured to the area between his fingers — “it can be an ineffective clap and you can get hurt. Injuries can occur if you don’t keep your fingers spread.”
