LSU fans still talking about Miles' decision
For LSU, this week's open date is a chance to get off the emotional roller coaster it has ridden the past three weeks with two wins (Florida, Auburn) and a loss (Kentucky) being decided in the last minute of regulation and in overtime.
"Going into the Kentucky game, everyone was talking about our game against Florida [the previous week] and they couldn't leave it alone," LSU coach Les Miles said. "After the Kentucky game, all everyone talked about was the Kentucky game. No one could get past the Kentucky game."
