“I Hope…They Make Him Pay A Price” Says LSU Head Football Coach Les Miles

Things are pretty much back-to-normal on the LSU campus Tuesday after a bomb threat caused the administration to evacuate 30,000 students plus faculty and employees. That evacuation included Coach Les Miles having to leave the football operations building and his children, who attend a school on the LSU campus, also being forced to leave.

There was some confusion and tense moments and ‘Are your children ok, is their daddy ok?’ Those things go on.

The evacuation forced Miles to cancel Monday’s practice, but he says university leaders made the right call. “I think our team will respond and our preparation won’t be hurt, but these things are real issues. Morally, you cannot come into this building, it’s not right,” says Miles.

The LSU bomb threat is the latest in a series of bomb threats across the U.S. that has affected colleges and universities in Texas, North Dakota and Ohio.

Louisiana State Police and other agencies spent hours searching the campus for explosives before the all-clear was given late Monday night. No explosives have been found.

State Police are still investigating and are trying to find the person or persons responsible.  Coach Miles says, if caught, that person should be charged to the fullest extent of the law.

I hope they find the guy who did this and, certainly, make him pay a price.
