The Les Miles era has gotten off to a bumpy start at Kansas. The former LSU head coach was supposed to confidently ride into Lawrence like the Messiah and save a the dormant Jayhawks football program from another decade of irrelevancy. Instead, we were treated to the Mad Hatter bumbling his way through a simple question about his preferred style of play with all of the ambivalence of a middle school kid giving a presentation on a book he didn't read.
Can somebody translate?
Miles, who was a notoriously great soundbite in Baton Rouge, delivered one of the most baffling answers in recent memory.
The tongue-tied Miles has a long way to go if he wants to bring the Jayhawks back to prominence. After winning the Orange Bowl just 12 years ago, coaches like Charlie Weis and David Beaty have guided the Jayhawks into the abyss, making them the laughingstock of FBS football. They've won just 18 games in 10 years.

Kansas paid FCS opponent Nicholls State $450,000 to play them.

You only get one chance to make a first impression. The Kansas media's first impression of the ever-eccentric Miles was one of genuine confusion. Not the best start for life as a Jayhawk.
