BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

26 days to go until the Tigers face Texas Christian University in the 2013 season opener.


Monday was the first day of training camp for the LSU Tiger's football team. At 2:15 p.m. officials announced that Monday afternoon's practice would be closed to the media - no reason was given.

Les Miles' first meeting with the media was scheduled for 5:35 p.m. Monday. The news conference did not start until just after 6 p.m.

LSU running back Jeremy Hill was the first person to speak at the news conference.

Hill apologized for his actions in his role in a fight outside of Reggie's bar in April.   He apologized to the community and his teammates and also said he wants to be a better person, teammate, and role model in the community.  Hill's statement lasted 25 seconds and did not take any questions from the media.

Coach Miles said Hill has been reinstated to the football team, but this came only after the team voted to have him back.  Hill met with his teammates around 2:15 and then practiced with the freshman Monday afternoon, where Miles said Hill looked rusty.

Miles promised further punishment is expected and it will be made internal. Miles said it will be a quality call when asked if his punishment will involve suspension from any games. Miles said no timetable is set for his punishment, and the team's unity council will have part in the decision.

Hill was suspended after his arrest in April for the incident outside the bar.
