The news out of Baton Rouge (a city whose correct pronunciation requires that you huff and wave a handkerchief wildly) is that LSU’s football coach, Les “Fewer” Miles is blasting Gunner Kiel, the nation’s number one quarterback recruit whose name is not in any way made up.
“We needed a quarterback,” Miles told the crowd. “We lost two. We needed a quarterback in this class. There was a gentleman from Indiana that thought about coming to the Bayou State. He did not necessarily have the chest and the ability to lead a program, so you know.”
Burn! LSU is obviously too good for this guy they’re mad at for refusing their offer to attend their college for free. Now, generally it’s not good practice for college football coaches to be mocking 18-year-olds in general, and recruits specifically, so this Gunner Kiel must have done something bad, right? Well, he had committed to LSU until less than a week before signing day, at which point, well, his mom got in the way.
“From what I have been told, he is no longer coming to LSU,” recruiting expert Michael Scarborough of Rivals.com/TigerBait.com said Monday night. “He wants to come to LSU, but his mother (Aleta Kiel) got very emotional Monday and did not want her son to leave. He plans to enroll in classes at Notre Dame on Tuesday.”
