LSU athletic director Joe Alleva pinch hit for Les Miles at his weekly luncheon. Miles had a headache this morning and was checked out at the hospital as a precautionary measure. Alleva's statement: "Obviously Coach Miles is not here. He’s a little bit under the weather. He was working this morning in his office. He didn’t feel very well, he went down to see the trainers, the trainers thought it would be best for him to go to the hospital and get checked out on a precautionary basis. We feel like he’s fine. He’ll be at practice today and he will be available to all of you after practice.”
