Les Miles strikes putt-putt and camera gold

Les Miles never ceases to amaze, well, anyone.

His quirky antics and enthusiasm bring a smile to your face, while you can't help but be impressed by some of the ways he and his teams pull out victories. There is no exact science to Miles, but love him or hate him, he's entertaining.

Now, apparently, he's a baller in the miniature golf world.

We've seen plenty of celebrations by LSU's national championship-winning coach, but this one deserves a spot atop Miles' list.


And let's not act like that was an easy putt for the Mad Hatter. There were distractions all around Miles, from the Madonna song playing in the background to him being asked question after question before he can even try to sink what looks like a putt that's a little more than a yard from the hole. Somehow he concentrates on the hole while talking about how Tiger Woods is his favorite golfer and he even checks the direction of the wind.

I'm no world-class golfer, but I don't think you need to know wind direction when it comes to sinking a short putt-putt ... putt. But the whole thing is glorious, and so is Miles. It's hard to hear and understand everything Miles is saying during the video, but there's a reference to his grip and someone makes fun of how slow he's playing. He really does pull a Sergio Garcia with his stalling and practice shots.

But in the end, he sinks the putt and drops his immaculate putter to the sound of cheers, while raising his Popeye arms and modestly chanting, "I can't help it. I can't help it."

Miles really has never been able to help it, and for that, we love him. We also love all these other classic and glorious videos Miles and been a part of.

How about his emotional postgame rant about the importance of his seniors after LSU's thrilling 41-35 win over rival Ole Miss in 2012? He gushes over them, calls his own college career "a flop," curses, and tells people to hug his seniors and "give them a big kiss on the mouth, if you're a girl." In a word: Brilliant.


Remember when he wasn't happy about the "hammer and nail" analogy used after last year's win over Florida? Of course you do.

Miles also wants tough quarterbacks at his school.

Last spring, he helped start one of the best Harlem Shake videos of all time with some amazing dance moves. If you were trying to forget those things, I'm so sorry, but this is just too magnificent.



This spring, he kissed a pig ...


He also wants you to know that Columbus Day and St. Patty's Day are two different days.

But with Miles, it always comes back to his, uh, taste in grass ...


We salute you, Les Miles.
