LSU’s Les Miles thinks 25 SEC teams should be ranked in the Top 25

A record 10 SEC teams were selected in this week’s AP Top 25 Poll, but that wasn’t enough to satisfy LSU coach Les Miles.

Miles thought that the SEC should have had a few more teams represented in the AP Top 25, according to’s Scott Rabalais.

“I thought we should have 25 teams in,” Miles joked during the SEC teleconference on Wednesday. “They didn’t rank the second teams.”

OK, all 25 spots is a little more than just a few, and while some second-teamers have enough talent to start for other schools, Miles’ comments might be stretching it a bit too much.

All seven schools from the SEC West and three schools from the East are currently ranked in the AP top 25. So yes, the SEC is still pretty good, but maybe not as good as Miles’ usual jokes.

Ohio State, Baylor, TCU and 12 other schools might have a few other ideas that contrast with Miles’ comment.
