It's now only hours away from the big show-down between LSU and Alabama, a SEC college football game between No. 1 and No. 2 in the nation, which has captured the nation's attention  as if it were the BCS Championship game.

Les Miles

In honor of the Game of the Century and three of my favorite quotes, three of my indecipherable quotes from LSU, here are quotes from LSU coach Les Miles:

"There's a time when you have to put a lot of distractions in the perimeter."

"I think  this team has a lot of fundamental teammanship to it."

"The game looked a lot like I expected it to look  upon like I expected it to."
