Sometimes You Have To Do What Les Miles Says

As coach Les Miles was interviewed by Erin Andrews on his way off the field at halftime.  He was asked, what he’s going to do get his offense that’s not clicking going in the second half.  Les responded with the quote below:

“We had cadence issues, fumbled snaps, every possible mistake was made… What’s gotta happen at this point is we have gotta chunk that and do things that we came here to do.” ~Les Miles

I’m writing this post during half-time of the game where Alabama has just hit it’s 3rd field goal and lead Les Miles’ Bayou Bengals 9-0.  I don’t have any idea what the outcome will be; however I do know that Coach Miles’ advice doesn’t only apply to football, it’s the story of life.

When things are going wrong and every possible mistake is happening, you gotta chunk that stuff, get focused and do what you came to do.  A key element is during the interview Les Miles didn’t seemed to be worried and was as cool as the other side of the pillow.

Chunk it and do what you were created to do!

  • When I heard Les say that, I said, “Man, that’s good” too. Couldn’t agree more. Sometimes, you just gotta start over… no matter what you’re doing!

      when I heard it I said, let me whip something out now…

  • His composure, I think was reflective in his honesty of where the team was. He wasn’t flipping out and losing his emotional control, he knew reality, he was aware of the facts and more importantly he was aware of what needed to change.

      Yelp…  even when you are aware, doesn’t mean you can change it quickly.  He missed out on a $5 million bonus.
