Les Miles Monday Presser: http://videos.nola.com/times-picayune/2013/09/les_miles_said_no_8_tigers_nee.html I sincerely feel Les is improving in terms of public speaking and I applaud him for this. facts: You will excuse me if I point out that Kent State is a good football team and has more than enough to give LSU plenty of problems. (as coach Miles points out in his Monday Presser) trivia: NickSaban had not intended to enter coaching until Don James, his coach at Kent State made him a graduate assistant while he waited for his wife to graduate. He later served as an assistant coach at Syracuse, West Virginia, Ohio State, Navy and Michigan State in NCAA Division I-A, and with the Houston Oilers and Cleveland Browns in the National Football League. Saban is considered part of the Bill Belichick coaching tree, having worked under him in Cleveland. Kent State History: The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre) occurred at Kent State University in the U.S. city of Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of unarmed college students by the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4, 1970. The guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis. Some of the students who were shot had been protesting against the Cambodian Campaign, which President Richard Nixon announced during a television address on April 30. Other students who were shot had been walking nearby or observing the protest from a distance.
