Les Miles Pipes in Cowbells to Prepare LSU for Trip to Mississippi State

Each team goes through the typical preparation for their upcoming opponent by watching film to break down their opponent’s tendencies and implement new plays into the game plan based on the team’s personnel. But Les Miles is also prepping LSU for the unique sound experience the Tigers will experience Saturday when they travel to Mississippi State.

“We’re thinking that piping in cowbells is something we need to run Thursday,” Miles told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “We piped in music pretty hard. Maybe the cowbells need a little tuning up.”

The cowbells are a tradition at Mississippi State where fans are instructed to “ring responsibly” at appropriate times during the game, and the stadium can get rocking when the bells are clangin’. Piping in music before playing in an inhospitable environment is nothing new, but this is the first time I’ve heard a coach “tuning up” the cowbells.

Maybe Les Miles has a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell. Then again, more cowbell is never a bad idea, right?

LSU and Mississippi State kick off at 6 p.m. Saturday on ESPN with LSU looking to continue their winning streak to 14 over the Bulldog’s
