LSU coach Les Miles is known for his quick wit in front of the media.
So his humorous response to a question about satellite camps during an appearance at the SEC spring meetings in Destin, Fla., shouldn’t come as a shock.
A reporter posed a question to Miles about the possibility of other schools encroaching upon his home turf to do some recruiting by way of satellite camp, and Miles fired back with the perfect response:
Les Miles was asked if he could keep satellite camps out of Louisiana. "If I could, we'd hoist small-caliber weapons."

Rest assured, the long-time Bayou Bengals coach was just kidding around.
But the sentiment holds true. He likely has little interest in coaches from other areas of the country getting easy access to Louisiana, which has proven to be very fertile recruiting ground for LSU over the years.
After a disappointing finish to the 2015 season, Miles is prepping his Tigers for what many expect to be a potential SEC championship run in the 2016 season.
