When talking the ins and outs of game preparation, Miles will often reference the three phases of the game: Offense, defense and special teams.
When breaking down Arkansas on Monday, he referenced football's holy trinity twice in 5 minutes.
"(Bobby Petrino) has his team playing in all three phases very well," Miles said.
The final phase – special teams – might be the most paramount when No. 1 LSU meets No. 3 Arkansas on Friday.
On paper, it's tough to call.
"Both return teams that Arkansas has are very talented," Miles said. "They have an ability to take the ball back. On the punt return and kickoff return they do a great job of blocking and setting up those returns.
"The good news is that we have fast guys on that team for us. That will be a nice matchup. We will hopefully have a number of our punt team down there covering those kicks and those punts very well."
The Tigers' Brad Wing ranks fourth in the SEC in punting. 12times he's kicked it further than 50 yards, 21 times he's downed it inside the20-yard line and he's forced nine fair catches.
For gunners like senior cornerback Ron Brooks, there's almost always an opportunity to down the ball in the shadows of the goal line –meaning opponents are forced to drive the length of the field on one of the nation's elite defenses if they want to put points on the board.
"Brad does an excellent job with his punts," Brooks said. "He has a monster leg. He's able to punt the ball so high and far, and it help sus out as gunners because we have time to get down there.
"He makes us look good."
The final test of the regular season might also be the biggest.
"It's definitely the biggest challenge we have faced," Wing said.
It begins with Adams, who averages 16.2 yards a punt return and is the only player in the conference to take a punt for a touchdown more than once (he's done it three times). While LSU has punted to the likes of Alabama's Marquis Maze and West Virginia's Tavon Austin, there hasn't been a buzz around the special teams unit like there has been this week for Adams.
"He's the best returner we have seen, and he's in a great scheme," Wing said.
Adams' most memorable moment from this season came in the first quarter of a 49-7 win over Tennessee, when he fielded a line drive punt, evaded a wave of Volunteers, backtracked 10 yards, split a group of Volunteers and sprinted 60 yards up the sidelines for the touchdown.
Watching from home, Wing couldn't believe what he had seen.
"I hate it," Wing said. "You never want that to happen to you. He's that dangerous. You give him one opportunity and he will do whatever he wants with it.
"When he has the ball in his hands, he can make magic happen."
The good news for LSU fans is that in his three years in the U.S., Wing has yet to give up six points – a mark he hopes will stick beyond this season, his first as a punter in the SEC.
"I hope forever," Wing said of how long he hoped to keep the streak. "Every time I am out there I watch it until the play is over, just in case. I get frustrated when they get a little bit of return yards."
It's not often that opponents are able to get yards off Wing's punts. On 13 returns this season, LSU has held opponents to 6 total yards – an average of .46 yards per return.
Numbers like those make it tough for anyone – even Adams – to spark something big.
"We have had some big challenges, but we pride ourselves on our punt team," Wing said. "I just have to give them good punts and hang time so we can get downfield and tackle them."
LSU has yet to give up a touchdown, and on 54 kickoffs, Hairston has recorded nine touchbacks and is holding opponents to 20.4 yards a return.
Both Wade and Dennis Johnson have returned kickoffs to the house this season for the Razorbacks, meaning Adams isn't the only danger posed when the Tigers are giving the ball back to Arkansas.
On 10 attempts, Wade is averaging 29.6 yards per return, while Johnson is averaging 25.6 yards on 18 touches.
Regardless, the Tigers remain confident in its approach.
"I never go into a week thinking anybody will beat us," Brooks said. "That's my mindset and our team's mindset."
Wing added: "We are continuing to prepare like we always prepare. Them being the best return team we have faced, we are just going to play like we always play."
