Les Miles has come to be known as a quirky head football coach.
The LSU head coach has been seen eating grass on national television and unusually handling postgame press conferences.
Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen sees many coaches with different personalties and various-type attitudes, and he has great respect for the man referred to as "The Mad Hatter."
"He's a very good coach," Mullen said. "He's got a lot of personality. Sometimes that can come off in a different way. We all have our quirks. I chew my gameplan sometimes, I wear a visor so I guess I have my quirks. Everybody has though. You look at the success he's had, obviously to be in this league as long as he's been, it shows the type of coach that he is."
Miles brings his No. 10 Tigers (4-1, 0-1) to Starkville this Saturday to play Mullen's Bulldogs (2-2, 0-1). Kickoff is scheduled for 6:06 p.m. and can be seen on ESPN.
