On Oct. 4, 2008, LSU head coach Les Miles was in the middle of a bye week. The fourth-ranked Tigers, eight months removed from the program's second national championship in the last five years, were 4-0 on the season and had 38 wins in Miles' first 44 games.
Les Miles wasn't thinking about Kansas football on Oct. 4, 2008, so he didn't notice they beat Iowa State in Ames, which until Friday night, was their last road win over a Power Five team. Eleven years later, as Miles, three games into his first season as Kansas head coach, departed the field following Friday's 24-point win over Boston College, he was told of that streak.
Walking off the field after the win over the Eagles, a KU staff member handed to Miles a message on his phone noting the streak. The coach turned to athletic director Jeff Long, walking alongside him. “I said, ‘Jeff, did you know this?’” Miles says. “He says, ‘Yes, but I didn’t tell you everything when I hired you.’”
Miles has spent the last nine months figuring out how to make Kansas not suck at football after nine years of sucking at football; therefore it's not particularly surprising he didn't spend 10 seconds of those nine months asking about their most recent Power Five road win.
