LSU coach Les Miles is eating grass again

Sunday November 9th, 2014

LSU coach Les Miles is man of many idiosyncrasies, but his defining characteristic may be his penchant for eating grass. 

CBS caught him doing it again during Saturday night's game against Alabama.

This weird habit first rose to national attention in 2010, when television cameras caught him snacking on a piece of the field during the Tigers' game against the Tide. 

Les Miles didn't like reporter wearing red before LSU-Alabama game

"I have a little tradition that humbles me as a man, that lets me know that I’m a part of the field, a part of the game and it’s the very bottom as well as the very top and it could be all over the Internet, but, you know what? You should have seen some games before this," he said at the time. "I tell you one thing. The grass at Tiger Stadium tastes best."

We'll take your word for it.
