Petulant Les Miles Upset With Tulane Over Satellite Camps

Come on, Les. Act like you run a big boy program.

Well, this is a new wrinkle to the satellite camp ordeal. The Tulane Green Wave dared invite the Texas A&M Aggies coaches to their camp this summer, which elicited this response from Les Miles:

LSU coach Les Miles: Other Louisiana schools will be invited to Tigers' summer camps unless... - The Advocate

Miles, appearing on "Culotta and the Prince" on 104.5 FM ESPN in Baton Rouge on Friday morning, said every camp LSU hosts will be open to other in-state schools, such as UL-Monroe and UL-Lafayette, unless a school already has plans to partner with out-of-state schools for camps.

On Thursday, first-year Tulane coach Willie Fritz announced the Green Wave will host camps "featuring Texas A&M coaches" this summer.

"There'll be that school that would not attend if they partner with an outside state school," Miles said, though not specifically mentioning the Wave. "Then we're certainly not going to allow them to attend."

The article goes on to mention that the LSU Tigers coaches plan to attend a camp in Dallas. So, Les, what's good for the goose ain't good for the gander, eh? For some perspective, Samford's mega-camp, held right in the Tide's back yard, will include coaches from the Georgia Bulldogs, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, and Iowa Hawkeyes among many others.

Sorry, Les. You've been one of the more successful, and certainly fun, coaches in the sport over the last decade, but you look rather pathetic here.
