BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Former LSU head coach Les Miles won nearly 80% of his games with the Tigers.

However, Miles had a tendency to lose track of the game clock.

Two of the most infamous cases of this occurred within a year’s time. There was the 2009 contest at Ole Miss and then the 2010 home game against Tennessee.

The Tigers lost the first affair at the Rebels, 25-23, before a somewhat miracle occurrence allowed LSU to defeat the Volunteers, 16-14.

Former LSU offensive lineman Will Blackwell recalled his memories of both, as his humorous interactions with fellow lineman T-Bob Hebert were part of both of those chaotic finishes.
