Les Miles Curses on a Rant About The ‘Hammer and Nail’ (Video)
Les Miles should be happy about his team winning at home 17-6 against Florida earlier today. He may have been if a reported didn’t ask him how felt about LSU being the nail and Florida the hammer in last years game. After he got asked that the whole thing got derailed. Check it below:
Here is the full transcript:
“I got a question for you. It was a 14-6 game. We played our ass off. And how anybody could pick a hammer and the nail, when in fact that hammer or that nail or whatever in the hell you’ve got picked…We catch a ball down there, we take the lead, we turn it over, I mean, explain to me how Kevin Minter, who sets damn near the career tackle record in that game, how anybody could ever say hammer and the nail? Here’s what happens. Two very quality teams take the field and compete like a son of a bitch for victory.
You know what? It’s not a hammer and a nail relationship. It’s an opportunity for an opponent to be equal, and to raise their level of play in such a fashion that they win. And that’s how this thing works, that in fact you respect the opponent and he’s not the hammer and he’s not the frickin’ nail, okay? He’s the opponent. You understand? I’m just letting you know, I resent that. I resent the fact that suddenly, we were nailed. You got it? I mean honest to Pete’s. Shit we’re a pretty good team last year. I thought we played like a son of a bitch in that statement. I felt differently than the nail, so you know.”
I wonder what it’s like to play for Les. I bet he goes off on these types of rants often. You just won Les, chill out and eat some grass man.
