The Lambeau Leap is one of the most iconic traditions in the NFL, so it’s understandable that the opportunity jump into the crowd after scoring a touchdown is enticing to LSU players who head north to Green Bay take on Wisconsin this weekend, where ESPN’s College GameDay will be in attendance.
However, according to Les Miles’ comments on the SEC media teleconference today, don’t expect any LSU players to be taking part in the tradition and risking a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for celebrating.
“I promise you that if anyone jumps for the Lambeau Leap, they’ll end up with their thumb out to see if they can get a ride home. It’s college football, and we’ll play it that way, and I think our guys understand. We’ll do it right,” Miles said via phone, according to Sporting News.
A Les Miles promise is something you can take to the bank.
At least one LSU player is thinking about testing the waters regardless of the punishment, head over to Sporting News to read more on it.
While Les is wagging his finger at players taking part, Wisconsin is tweeting GIFs with their players practicing it in the empty stadium.
