    I'm not the best person to ask this question, but I do know that the replay comes on tonight at 11 and on Wednesday. Maybe someone else within the viewing area can give a good description.

    Les was pretty vague through out the show. He was interesting to watch, yet you come away not really knowing anything more.

    Some interesting things were during the discussion of running backs - Miles basically described all 3 (Broussard, Addai & Vincent) in the same way as they are described on TF. He mentioned that JV is a person who is ready to get in some more playing time and with the staff change this is the perfect opportunity for him.

    There was no mention of a Spring game during the show.

    On the QB situation: He said that Russel/Flynn have an advantage over Perrilloux because of Spring ball. From there he said he would get a good feel for who was in position to be the starter. He said once Perrilloux comes in he's going to be given just as good of a shot and we'll see if he can come in and compete right away.

    When asked what part of the team he felt needed some improvement he said he felt like the linebackers needed to be a little stronger & some more depth to the position.

    He also talked about how important it was to get alot of the coordinators he brought in. I'm really excited about this staff he has assembled.

    In general he sounded very, very confident. He certainly didn't have the mentality of "well, Appalachian St is a solid program etc. etc." It was, "Well, we're gonna go ahead and beat Appalachian St and get on with the season to win the rest of the games." It's not only fans expecting results. Miles is here to win, there's no doubt about it.

    Another Miles mentioned about Perrilloux was that other recruits saw the number one recruit coming to LSU and wanted to be a part of that because they knew that it would be a very special class which would have the potential to win some championships.

    In other recruiting, he said that LSU recently having a National Championship will always help recruit kids because most of this team knows what it takes to win a championship and that these kids could have a good chance of winning one themselves if they come to LSU. He said it wasn't to hard to recruit kids to LSU because he only had to show them what he saw & why he decided to come here. He said Perrilloux & his family really wanted to come to LSU as long as we could offer him the same or more opportunities that Texas or wherever else could. Coach Miles talked very highly of the facilities that LSU offers and the national prominence that comes along with playing for a power school like LSU.

    Wasn't that big a part of the show, but also talked about trick plays. Said he's for any play that wins. Then said his favorite/best trick play was running a double reverse at Michigan -- which, if done right then can open up a double reverse pass and then a double reverse pass option.

    Doucet was a former HS QB....As was Skyler Green and Joseph Addai. The possibilities are endless when speaking in terms of reverses with a pass option.

    Thanks for the 411 Parso. Sounds like he's keeping things close to the vest but hey, he's still new to his surroundings.
