A news conference that was originally scheduled for 6 p.m. this afternoon has been pushed up to noon!

According to numerous sources this press conference will include a "significant announcement concerning the LSU football team"

From the Lafayette Advertiser:

BATON ROUGE - There is likely to be a significant announcement concerning the LSU football team at noon today.

LSU athletic department officials have been letting every media member they can contact this morning know that a previously routine press conference with coach Les Miles scheduled for 6:15 p.m. has been moved up to noon today, and they are informing reporters that they need to be there.

Such practices are not used for routine press conferences during preseason camp. LSU informs media members of changes in regular press conference times via Twitter, not via officials calling reporters individually as they have done today.

"LSU coach Les Miles will meet with members of the media today at NOON in the TEAM ROOM," LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette just said in a release to reporters. "This is a change from the original schedule, which had him meeting with the media after the second practice today."

LSU associate vice chancellor and associate athletic director Herb Vincent has also been contacting reporters about the press conference.

Miles closed practices this week earlier than scheduled and has not given a reason. Neither has anyone else at LSU.
