Lunch with Les 9/21/15 - Syracuse Pregame

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports


Usual plaudits for Syracuse "I mean, they got a great law school and it's a great school."...Praises the O-line for their great work this weekend. Also likes how Harris continues to improve. Miles prefers a few overthrown balls than having any turnovers. Heaps of praise for the defensive game plan, singles out Frank Herron's play and compares him to Drake Nevis...lots of un-ironic praise for Syracuse beating Central Michigan in OT last week, but only because Miles' wife went there and he's also a good friend of current CMU coach John Bonamego...brings up Syracuse's numbers on offense and brings up that the QB who started last week is probably out with a concussion...Said he watched parts of Bama/Ole Miss, but didn't give a detailed opinion...Gives the first of many easy deflections of Heisman talk for Fournette...Duke Riley and/or Lamar Louis will play for Deion Jones during his first half suspension for the targeting infraction. Miles says it's the first time an LSU player's been called for that in 3 years and he agreed with the call...Dylan Gordan is day-to-day, but it doesn't sound serious. He will travel to Syracuse...No issue for Fournette after that helmet to his knee on the touchdown leap...Miles could not recall if Syracuse had recruited him back in the day, but he does mention he was a big Jim Brown fan...more praise for the O Line "They wanted to play in a way that this conference could see that there was something going on at LSU."...tells how they found Colin Jeter through a camp for eligible JUCO players
