BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The last LSU football practice before Saturday's spring game included student spectators, which usually doesn't happen, and even some student competitors auditioning for the role of punt returner.
Head coach Les Miles said he told his players to tweet invitations to classmates, and even make personal pleas in their classrooms.
There was plenty of entertainment for their efforts.
"That's the spirit of college," Miles said. "Really, people enjoying other people's lives and kind of seeing what other people go through."
"It's just fun; I just take it as fun," said Kenneth Tarabante, an LSU grad student. "I don't like too much attention on myself, but it's great. For a year, one day, have all this fun. It's awesome."
"The shorter big fella, yeah. To be honest with you, I thought he was maybe the MVP," Miles added.
The gates to Tiger Stadium open at 11:30 a.m. The game starts at 1 p.m.
