LSU head coach Les Miles unsurprisingly likes to play poker

If you know the LSU Tigers like I do, you know that their head coach Les Miles LOVES to take risks on the field. While he has backed off on doing it so much in recent seasons, people will remember the Tigers going for the first down on fourth four different times against Florida a few years ago and making it all four times.

What about the famous play “Bayou” that saw the team fake a field goal with Matt Flynn flipping the ball over his head to kicker Colt David who proceeded to scamper in for a touchdown against South Carolina? Yeah, Les certainly likes to gamble.

Apparently, he loves to literally gamble, whether it be electronically or on a table, in real life. According to College Spun, he talked about how he has a love for the popular table card game poker. I can’t really blame him, I love the game too.

Miles says he has a poker game on his phone.

"I do it in the summer time and occasionally I'll do it at the casino. Real poker."

Just a week ago, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski was seen hitting the slots in Las Vegas. Could you imagine what these two on a poker table together would be like?

Hopefully Miles has gotten some practice taking risks on his phone game. I would love to see some more risks this season.
