Bobby Petrino didn’t really care for Les Miles … scoring?
Arkansas was down 38 to 17 when Les decided to kick a fieldgoal to put the Tigers up 41-17, and by all accounts, Bobby didn’t seem to be to happy with this. He appears to have a few choice words for the Mad Hatter. I’ll let you decide what his actual words were. The post game hand shake went about the same way, with Petrino seeming to say, “whatever” to Miles as he walked off.
I don’t think there was anything wrong with LSU running up the score, and if Arkansas had been in front, Petrino would have done the same thing, so this reflected poorly upon him. Was LSU even trying to run up the score? In the post game Miles said that he was just looking for the best opportunity to take a knee and end the game. This is the same coach that was destroying Ole Miss last week and was accused of poor sportsmanship when he knelt the ball on the 10 yard line 4 times instead of RUNNING UP THE SCORE.
Sorry Coach Miles, but apparently you cannot win with other SEC teams fans.
Reader Note: Petrino and Arkansas scored 44 on Mississippi State last weekend when State had only 17 points.
