VIDEO: Les Miles declined to confirm suspensions for Mathieu, Simon and Ware

At a press conference following Wednesday practice, LSU football coach Les Miles declined to address reports that football players Tyrann Mathieu, Tharold Simon and Spencer Ware were suspended for Saturday’s game against Auburn. A brief summary follows and you can watch video of Les Miles press conference on the player at the end of the story.

“I certainly understand the interest surrounding what seems to be news, but the problem with that news is it is internal discipline and internal function of a team,” LSU Coach Les Miles said. “I am not inclined to be forthcoming with information. I am not reactionary to needs of media and things external to this building.”

Miles elaborated a bit more.

“So, with that being said, there is a process that I go through and it is not going to be shortcutted…when there is information that I can share, I will,” Miles said. “I’m doing this for the best for our football team.”

Miles said he would be “true” to his process and procedure in this case.
