Miles Using ZZ Top To Prep LSU For Auburn

If you were near the LSU practice fields yesterday, you might have heard a little something like this blaring from the facility’s speakers:

 

ZZ Top – My Head's In Mississippi (Official Music Video)

 

That’s because Les Miles — like a lot of other coaches — likes to use loud music to prepare his team for noisy road games:

 

“I think road games are an extension of the personality of the team.  If there’s a strong personality, those teams that are very, very good teams play well on the road.  It’s just how they are…

We put some noise out there (on the practice field).  We normally use a selection of music for a couple of periods, but when on the road, we use it for the majority of practice.”

 

The Baton Rouge Advocate reports that ZZ Top popped up on yesterday’s playlist.  Having seen Auburn’s struggles this year, we don’t think the Tigers in purple and gold should have too much trouble with the Tigers in navy and burnt orange.  Unless Miles had his guys listening to this God-awful mess:

 

ZZ Top – Velcro Fly

 

I’m not sure a team could overcome that.

I love ZZ Top.  Which is why I try to tell myself that "Velcro Fly" was some bunch of 80's synth-loving imposters.

 

Thanks for reading,

John
