Les Miles on Leonard Fournette investigation: “What I do know is it’s positive”
Les Miles told reporters he doesn’t know much about the ongoing investigation surrounding star running back Leonard Fournette’s family. But what Miles is privy to might have Tigers fans breathing a little easier.
“What I do know is it’s positive,” according to The Advocate’s Marcus Rodrigue. “That’s all I can say.”
LSU is investigating whether Fournette’s family violated NCAA rules while trying to create a web site that featured a phrase associated with Fournette.
Attorney Bob Barton has started interviewing people connected to the site, which sold merchandise featuring Fournette’s slogan “BUGA Nation.” Fournette created the slogan while in high school and it stands for “Being United Generates Attitude.”
The “BUGA Nation” site launched in 2014, but business ceased immediately after that, according to USA Today. The merchandise did not include Fournette’s name, either. It merely included the slogan with LSU colors, per the report.
