Les Miles comments on NCAA’s investigation of Fournette


Just last week, it was reported that star LSU running back Leonard Fournette’s family may have violated some NCAA rules by creating and selling merchandise featuring the catchphrase “BUGA Nation” created by the Heisman Trophy candidate. The family had began a website to sell hats and shirts with the phrase on them which was launched and subsequently shut down on the opening game of the 2014 LSU season, Fournette’s freshman year.

The NCAA has since launched an investigation into the situation.

LSU head coach Les Miles knows that he cannot allow Fournette and the rest of the team to get worked up about the situation and he had a pretty simple answer on how they must handle things.

“What I do know is it’s positive,” Miles said, via The Advocate. “That’s all I can say.”

That must be reassuring to a lot of fans, knowing that the Tigers will likely not have to give up any wins or lose their star running back for any game.

This team is certainly going to need him if they want to finish the year strong.

The Tigers, who suffered their first loss of the year to Alabama last week, look to rebound when they host Arkansas on Saturday, with the game kicking off at 7:15 p.m.
