LSU has just taken a 19-14 lead on Alabama after a 1-yard touchdown. On the drive, Les Miles called a reverse on 4th and 1 from LSU's 26 yard line; the play went to the Alabama 3. While watching his team attempt a two-point conversion that would eventually prove large, Miles took the logical next step and ate the grass at his feet.
Why, you ask? Hey, why not? In Les Miles' world, the risk is always dwarfed by the reward, so only good things could possibly happen here. And lo and behold, LSU won the game. Laugh if you must, but don't be surprised when you find yourself looking at a bag of lawn clippings longingly when things start going south. We should all be grass-eaters.
Also, for what it's worth, Russell Shepard says this is a regular occurrence. "I see him do it every day," Shepard said. "That's Coach Miles. He eats that grass. He says it has a lot of protein."
Well, there you go. He's just looking out for his nutrition. We're not hearing any reasons not to eat the grass, people.
