Erin Andrews Still Bowls Us Over

GQ: You're working the BCS Title Game between Alabama and LSU. Do you think that is the best match-up for a national title?
Erin Andrews: Yes, without question, and I'll argue anyone about it until I'm blue in the face. They're the best two teams in the country.

GQ: I agree defensively, but offensively?
Erin Andrews: I don't know if they're the best offensively, but I think they're all-in-all the two best teams in the country.

GQ: So are we going to see another 9-6 game like when they played in November?
Erin Andrews: No, I think the only thing that'll be the same about the match-up is the intensity. But I think even that's going to be revved up. You've got LSU coming in to a Superdome that I have heard is going to be impossible to even think in. The LSU camp—and I just spent two days in Baton Rouge with them—is just going be insane there. So you're going to have LSU feeding off that. Then you're going have Alabama, that wants to win this thing the second time around, and they want to prove that home-field advantage is not going to matter for LSU. Nick Saban is facing his old team in New Orleans, where he used to live, where he used to coach. You've got the Mad Hatter [LSU coach Les Miles], and he is crazy as anybody, you never know what he's going to do. You've got Tyrann Mathieu and Trent Richardson, who both lost the Heisman Trophy, and in my experience, guys who are playing for the National Championship and don't win the Heisman Trophy, they always take it out on the opposing team, which is just awesome. And you've got two offenses that need to play better than they did before.

GQ: Is Les Miles really insane?
Erin Andrews: He is nuts. But he's such a great guy. I know a side of Les that a lot of people don't know. When everything happened to me a couple of years ago, I had countless numbers of coaches that actually reached out and left me messages, and almost motivated me to get back to work, and to not let what happened to me really affect me coming back. I didn't really have much of a relationship with Les. I knew him, I'd covered his games, but he wasn't someone I'd call up if I needed something. And he called me out of the blue one day. I remember I was sitting on the back porch, and I was just kind of reading, getting some sun, and he called me and he said, "Do you have a few minutes?" And he said, "I just want to talk to you about what happened." He said, "I can't imagine what you're going through, but I don't want to hear that you're not coming back because of this, and you need to be back out there." He started lecturing me, to the point where I was ready to run through a window or the wall; I was ready to tackle someone. It was awesome. I was like, this must be what guys feel like before they take the field. And I didn't have much of a relationship with him for him to do that. He has a couple of daughters, and maybe he did it because he's a dad. So I've always looked at Les that way. But then I spent a full day with him when I went and did this all-access piece when we were getting ready for the first game against Alabama, and that was amazing. I drove to work with him, I saw how he was with his kids, and his daughter was like, "Daddy, drive up on the sidewalk like you usually do." He's just a nut. He doesn't do things like Nick Saban would, who is very by the book—everything is tucked in, everything is straight-laced. Les is just different, and I think that's what makes him one of the coolest characters in college football right now.
