Committing a crime while on probation for another crime means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in Baton Rogue. Les Miles is a much smaller man than I thought.
Upon reinstating running back Jeremy Hill to the LSU football team, Les Miles said there will be internal discipline for the twice-arrested star. A suspension from game action remains a possibility according to the coach.
Whether or not Hill takes the field against TCU in the Tigers’ season opener, his LSU teammates were glad to see him back at practice yesterday. It was no surprise that he had returned as the players themselves had voted to welcome him back. Safety Craig Loston had this to say:
“We all said yes because Jeremy is a great guy and people make mistakes. We always vote on everything. Coach Miles doesn’t make decisions on his own. He can do it but he always asks the team first. That’s how we do things around here.”
So far the decision to let the team aid in decisions has worked out pretty well for Miles. He’s 85-21 with two SEC titles and a BCS championship in eight seasons.
Sometimes being a “players’ coach” works out just fine on the field.
Whether or not Miles looks good for allowing his players to reinstate a guy who cold-cocked a man outside a bar while he was already serving probation for another crime… well, that’s another story.
