Les Miles: LSU fans should give players "a big kiss on the mouth"Posted: Updated:
In a week where most teams in the Southeastern Conference played "cupcake" teams, a tight game for Louisiana State University against conference opponent Ole Miss resulted in one of the most talked about post-game press conferences this season.
Pressure was high for LSU to beat Ole Miss during Senior Day in Baton Rouge, and the with 16 seconds left in the game - the Tigers were losing.
That's when Jeremy Hill scored his third touchdown with 15 seconds left to lift the Tigers to a 41-35 victory over Mississippi on Saturday. And the excitement for Les Miles seemed to explode out of him during the post-game conference.
Miles gushed over his team's will to fight back and win the game.
"I'm proud of those men," Miles said of his team. "How easy it could have been to say it was [Ole Miss'] night."
Miles said that he was proud of all his players, whether they were highly recruited or walk-on players, saying they all played hard on the field.
"He's getting his degree and his contribution was very, very significant and will be for the next two games!"
He then said that when he was a college player at Michigan - his career was a "flop."
"I underplayed my own expectations," Miles said. "My head coach would have probably told me 'You overplayed your own physical limitations'. My point to you is that there is no such thing as a flop that takes the field for our football team! Just so ya know."

That's when Miles said he was proud of his players and gave a suggestion to all LSU fans.
"Spectacular group of men. You go find them, you throw your arms around them and you give them a big kiss on the mouth… if you're a girl."
He then grinned from ear to ear and shouted "Wow! What a game!"
Miles wasn't quite through with the antics just yet. He showed reporters his "bowler dance move" that he felt like doing when Odell Beckham Jr. returned an 89-yard punt return for a score.
