Miles recalls Auburn DB's claims of easily tackling Leonard Fournette last season
Consider one bulletin-board-worthy comment burned in Les Miles’ mind.
On Wednesday, the LSU coach seemingly made a quip about Auburn safety Rudy Ford saying last season that tackling Fournette “shouldn’t be that difficult of a challenge.” Turns out, Fournette was a load for Auburn in that game last September at Tiger Stadium, where LSU won 45-21. Fournette ran for 228 yards on 19 carries with three touchdowns.
Ross Dellenger of The Advocate was there Wednesday to hear Miles make the comment.
Miles mentions Auburn safety's comments on how Fournette wouldnt be too tough to tackle.
Miles: "Didn't looks that way to me." #LSU

Pro tip: If you’re going to talk big against Miles and LSU, you better back it up.
