Wednesday's workouts had the Tiger offense taking the upper hand during the morning session, while the defense responded with a better workout during the second practice of the day.
"It was a good (day) of practice," Miles said following LSU's afternoon session on Wednesday. "The team was aggressive and competitive -- just what we needed. The defense was playing well. They had a better afternoon. The morning was the offense's time. It's progressing and things are going well.
"Every practice there's somebody basically who makes a call. This morning the offense called the defense out. Then the defense showed up this afternoon and answered that call."
Miles said the Tigers are expected to scrimmage approximately 25 plays on Thursday with Saturday's workout serving as another scrimmage for the Tigers.
"This is a tough week and it's our second two-a-day this week," Miles said. "We had a short scrimmage yesterday and we'll have a short scrimmage tomorrow. Then we'll have a two-a-day on Friday and tee it up and have a pretty good go on Saturday."
Miles also spent a portion of his post-practice interview session to compliment the condition and the work ethic of the team.
"I think the fitness level is good," Miles said. "This has been a nice, long hot day, and those kids played hard today. They played hard to the bitter end."
The Tigers will wrap up the work week on Friday with a practice in front of the ESPN cameras and a national television audience. The all sports network will televise the morning session on Friday. The practice will be aired at noon on Friday on cable ch. 35 in the Baton Rouge area.
"It's wonderful exposure for our program, but it will still be business as usual," Miles said of ESPN's televising Friday's practice.
Miles happy with LSU's progress
