BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - As sixth-ranked LSU began practicing for its Southeastern Conference opener against Auburn, defensive tackle Anthony Johnson had to do a double-take when he saw Les Miles stretching on the field with his players.
``I've never seen coach Miles stretch with us,'' said Johnson, adding that he and his teammates understood the symbolism of their head coach's participation in the pre-practice routine. ``Everybody's attitude is set on being dominant and winning the West (Division).''
Auburn was one of the worst teams in the SEC last year. That hardly seems to matter now. Both of the SEC West teams known as the Tigers head into Saturday night's clash in LSU's Tiger Stadium unbeaten.
