LSU coach Les Miles is cracking down on leaks. He has closed practice.
According to Glenn Guilbeau writing for Gannett in the News-Star, “The question is this. Why didn’t he close practice in all season long in ’06, ’07 or ’08? Because 2009 is his first season coming off an 8-5 season. So I guess we reporters lost all those games. … But Miles’ move at this time worries me. Is he blaming the media for the poor coaching his team received last season? But the most worrisome thing is this. LSU coaches who have completely closed practices never won again. Those were Gerry DiNardo and Curley Hallman.”
