LSU: LSU Board of Supervisors will consider an amendment to Les Miles' contract next week reports NOLA.com. The amendment would allow Miles to earn an additional $100,000 should the Tigers win the National Championship. The genesis of the amendment is due to the fact that there is now a semi-final game involved which wasn't around when Miles entered into this contract agreement. Miles' contract pays him $4.3 million per year prior to incentives.
