Miles calls Fournette’s bizarre outfit a ‘mistake’
LSU coach Les Miles brought super sophomore Leonard Fournette, considered a Heisman Trophy candidate, with him to SEC Media Days this week. But when he saw what the talented running back was wearing, he might have considered leaving him behind at the hotel.
Fournette, who came to Baton Rouge as the No. 1 recruit in the country in the 2014 class, apparently doesn't have as much fashion sense as he does football ability.
Check out the, uh, suit (?) he wore to Thursday's big event in Hoover, Ala.:
It's unclear if Miles considered the whole outfit a disaster or simply the pants, which ventured far too close to Alabama's crimson for most LSU fans.
But Miles, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy, told the assembled media of Fournette's attire: "It was a mistake. If I could spray paint (the pants), I would."
