Les Miles On The BP Oil Spill


Since you got to Louisiana first you got (Hurricane) Katrina to deal with now you got the oil spill working its way to you. I was just wondering … what kind of situation you all are facing (with the oil spill).”

Miles (audio below):

“Well, it uh, the impact is more of a … you know … anything, anything along the … the uh … the … shore and those issues are very serious issues and there … the impact is on the … the uh (long pause) you know, what is, the natural resource of our country, uh, but ah … I don’t know that it’s, I don’t know exactly, uh, to what extent it’s being handled well and managed or mismanaged I have no idea.

“The only thing I know is it’s very sincere and it’s, it’s uh, it affects more than Louisiana and it affects (muffled pause) … the ocean.”

Coach, I have no idea either.

One thing I do know though: Miles is never afraid to tee it up for us.
