Miles wants No. 2 LSU focused on Northwestern State, not next week's game vs. Miss. State
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) ' Les Miles actually said this: "I think the scoring of points has nothing to do with victory."
By now, though, LSU players understand how to derive practical meaning from their coach's curious quotes.
In this case, Miles was addressing the odd fact that LSU has shut out Saturday night's opponent, Northwestern State, in all 10 previous meetings. The coach's message was that he doesn't want his players thinking about LSU's dominance of this series, particularly when they haven't met since 1942.
