Les Miles is gearing up for his 10th season with the LSU Tigers, coming off a 10-3 (5-3 SEC) record and a 21-14 win in the Outback Bowl.

The energetic and colorful head coach joined FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman to talk about Southeastern Conference scheduling, the Tigers’ highly touted five-star recruit Leonard Fournette, his unique on-field behavior and much more.

Miles called Fournette “the guy that can get you five to seven yards, yet if there’s a seam it’s going to go the distance” and named him one of the Tigers you will soon know (if you don't already), along with three others on the defensive side of the ball.

Over the years, Miles has become a media favorite for his postgame pressers, affinity for tasting fresh-picked grass and his style of clapping.

“My clap is specific to me, I suspect," Miles said. "I have always wanted to make as much noise with my clap as I can, so it ends up looking that way.”

Miles admits, “I generally have reason for my madness.”
