"They have a very good football team. They play smart, they don't get themselves beat. They move the football both with the run and the pass. They play great defense and they're solid on special teams."
On Alabama QB Brodie Croyle….
"He's a quality quarterback. He throws the ball very well, he's very bright and he makes very few mistakes. He's a talented guy."
On the health of the team….
"We have a couple players who need to re-gain their health. There's nobody who played last week that we shouldn't have for the Alabama game. We actually could get some guys back this week. I know that Joe (Addai) felt much better yesterday after the game and much better today.
Miles noted that OG Will Arnold missed the Appalachian State game with the flu. He also noted that redshirt freshman C Ryan Miller will return to practice this week after being out of action since the Vanderbilt game with a knee injury. Miles also said the redshirt freshman OG Brett Helms will be out for the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.
On the way in which Alabama has been winning….
"It's been offense, defense and special teams, but right now they are winning on defense and special teams. Their offense is still contributing significantly. They are still moving the football and they are still very dangerous on offense with an outstanding running back in Kenneth Darby and a tremendous quarterback in Brodie Croyle.."
On this being a big week with No. 5 LSU facing No. 3 Alabama….
"This is a great week to go out and practice with the opportunity to play for the league. We are looking forward to playing a very good football team and we are preparing to play our best."
On the LSU offense….
"We have not played our best up to this point. We have not played with emotion for the last two weeks."
On how LSU return specialist Skyler Green affects field position….
"He's a tremendous factor. He's done a great job for us back there. If they (the opponent) are going to take their punter and point him towards the sideline and give us field position every snap, we'll take it. The key is where you start the possession, not necessarily the return."
