The first LSU College Football game without the mental case Les Miles, and the health of that feeling in this moment feels like the normality that we were hoping for.
One of the most embarrassing, disappointing LSU losses Les Miles may not have seen

Scratch the "inexplicable."
It was all explained in a brief halftime radio interview as LSU coach Les Miles was running off the field here in Saturday's season opener at Lambeau Field. His team was trailing unranked Wisconsin 6-0 after the Tigers' offensive juggernaut totaled 64 yards, 26 rushing and completed three passes for 38 yards.
Miles to LSU sideline reporter Gordy Rush: "We need to run the ball better. We've thrown the ball well."
What is Miles' definition of "well?" Is that is "Oh well" or "Well, hell."
