LSU Tigers head coach Les Miles said he will leave any player who does the “Lambeau Leap” behind in Wisconsin after the game.
The Tigers face the Wisconsin Badgers in at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, which is the home field for the Green Bay Packers. One of the oldest traditions in the NFL is when a Packers player scores he jumps into the stands to celebrate with the fans.

However, if a single LSU player jumps into the stands (in the near impossible event they score on Wisconsin) they’ll be hitch hiking back to Louisiana.
“If anyone jumps for the Lambeau Leap, they’ll end up with their thumb out to see if they can get a ride home,” Miles told the media.

It would be a 15-yard penalty for the player that decided to do it, but the much more realistic fear is what a group of drunk fans might do to a player that jumps into the stands to showboat. (SLIDESHOW: 12 Times Russell Wilson’s Wife Ciara Was Absolutely Stunning)
Good thing the vaunted Badgers defense doesn’t plan on yielding an inch. I imagine the defensive speech will go something like this.
It’s a beautiful thing that college football is finally back.
