LSU head coach Les Miles addressed the media Tuesday about the Tigers' activities during the weather delay against McNeese State and the upcoming match-up with the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Starkville, MS.
Miles said during the delay, he did football. He said he went over strategies with his players and told them to be prepared because he thought the game would be played. He said he also had his players stretch and warm up to be ready.
According to Miles, the weather did not cooperate and "that's that." He complimented the defense for the one series it played. He described what the offense did and said he thought they played hard, despite the drive resulting in a punt. He also acknowledged the punt by Jamie Keehn, saying it looked like it was going to fly out of Tiger Stadium.
Moving on to Mississippi State, Miles said the team is looking forward to kicking off the season opener. He went into the advantages of not playing that first game. He said they will be fresh and excited to be playing their first full game of the season.
Miles said the weather delay was miserable for sophomore quarterback Brandon Harris. He wanted to play. He didn't take his shoulder pads off the whole time and he is ready for this game.
Miles said the biggest factor in combating quarterback Dak Prescott's mobility is putting speed on the field. He described Prescott as a "big strong guy." He also said the quarterback commands the field.
