The Mad Hatter's appearance in Hoover started out slow, but picked up steam in a hurry.
After a rather lackluster performance in the main ballroom that included a fake Australian accent, references to hyperbaric oxygen research and a horse and buggy reference (seriously, those were the low points), Miles had a performance for the ages in the radio/Internet room.
As expected, Miles went off on scheduling, challenging the media and the public to present an appropriate solution.
"Hopefully, there will be some people in here that have strength and stand up in the crowd and say THIS ISN'T RIGHT! LET'S DO THIS THE RIGHT WAY! That's going to be YOUR JOB, not mine."
When asked about ninth-grader Dylan Moses—who reportedly has offers from several big-time schools, including LSU—Miles scoffed at the idea that young kids shouldn't get verbal scholarship offers.
"It's amazing, I promise you that I'm the first one who sits back and scoffs. 'Offer an eighth-grader, are you kidding me'?" Miles said sarcastically. "Offer a sixth-grader. I want you to know something, I'm looking at a fourth-graders now. 'How fast do you run? Do you play four square?' It just happens. LeBron James? We would have recruited and offered him in the second grade."
Never change, Les. Never change.
