Joe Tessitore: Ladies and Gentlemen, you all know that Les Miles has been hurtin'. Well we wanna welcome back tonight Les Miles for his first interview since his absence. Here is The Mad Hatter, Les Miles and Les, your fans welcome you back man.
Les Miles: First of all, I would to thank the many, many fans throughout this country that wrote cards and letters to Les Miles, The Mad Hatter, while I was down. Secondly, I want to thank Mike Slive Promotions for waitin’ and takin’ the time ‘cause I know how important it was, SEC Championship ‘14 it is to the wrestling fans, it is to Mike Slive Promotions, and Les Miles, The Mad Hatter. With that wait, I got what I wanted, Nick Saban and the Crimson TIde.
I don’t have to say a lot more about the way I feel about Nick Saban! No respect, No honor! There is no honor amongst thieves in the first place! He put hard times on Les Miles and his family! You don’t know what hard times are daddy! HARD TIMES are when the textile workers around this country are out of work, they got 4 or 5 kids and can’t pay their parking, can’t buy their tickets! HARD TIMES are when the oil workers are out of work and they tell ‘em to go home! And HARD TIMES are when a man has voted in the AP Poll for thirty years, thirty years, and they give him a watch, kick him in the butt and say "hey, a committee took your place, daddy", that’s HARD TIMES! That’s HARD TIMES! And Nick Saban you put HARD TIMES on this country by takin’ Les Miles out, that’s HARD TIMES!
And we all had hard times together, and I admit, we don’t look like the college football team of the day supposed to look. My offense’s just a lil’ run-heavy, my team’s just a lil’ young, but brother, I am bad and they know I'm bad. There were two bad people… One was John Wayne and he’s dead brother, and the other’s right here. Crimson Tide Nick Saban, the SEC West Heavyweight title belongs to these people. I’mma reach out
RIGHT NOW, I WANT YOU AT HOME TO KNOW MY HAND IS TOUCHIN' YOUR HAND FOR THIS BIGGEST GATHERING OF THE BIGGEST BODY OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY! IN THIS UNIVERSE, ALL OVER THE WORLD NOW, REACHIN' OUT BECAUSE THE LOVE THAT WAS GIVEN ME AND THIS TIME I WILL REPAY YOU NOW! BECAUSE WE WILL BE THE NEXT SEC WEST HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION ON THIS HARD TIME BLUES, LES MILES TOUR, '14!
And Nick Saban, Crimson Tide… Let me leave you with this. One way to hurt Nick Saban, is to take what he cherishes more than anything in the world and that’s the SEC West Heavyweight title. I’m gon’ take it, I been there thrice. This time when I take it daddy, I’m gon’ take it for you. Let’s gather for it. Don’t let me down now, ‘cause I came back for you, for that man up there that died 10-12 years ago and never got the opportunity to see a real World’s Champion. And I’m proud of you, thank god I have you, and I love you.
