Les Miles Goes on a NSFW Rant After LSU's Win over Florida

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffOctober 12, 2013

No. 10 LSU defeated No. 17 Florida 17-6 on Saturday in a tough game that was a solid victory for the Tigers. Despite the win, Les Miles was not pleased when asked about last year's game, a 14-6 upset by the Gators, and whether it felt better to be the "hammer" as opposed to the "nail."

Here's a transcript of his rant, via Cody Worsham:

I got a question for you. It was a 14-6 game. We played our ass off. And how anybody could pick a hammer and the nail, when in fact that hammer or that nail or whatever in the hell you’ve got picked…We catch a ball down there, we take the lead, we turn it over, I mean, explain to me how Kevin Minter, who sets damn near the career tackle record in that game, how anybody could ever say hammer and the nail? Here’s what happens. Two very quality teams take the field and compete like a son of a b**ch for victory.

You know what? It’s not a hammer and a nail relationship. It’s an opportunity for an opponent to be equal, and to raise their level of play in such a fashion that they win. And that’s how this thing works, that in fact you respect the opponent and he’s not the hammer and he’s not the frickin’ nail, okay? He’s the opponent. You understand? I’m just letting you know, I resent that. I resent the fact that suddenly, we were nailed. You got it? I mean honest to Pete’s. S**t we’re a pretty good team last year. I thought we played like a son of a b**ch in that statement. I felt differently than the nail, so you know.

Hat tip to College Spun for the find.
