BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU coach Les Miles says he's proud of his time as head coach at Oklahoma State and takes issue with "the idea that somebody would characterize the program that was run there as anything but right and correct."

Miles, who spoke on a Southeastern Conference teleconference Wednesday, says "every guy was encouraged to get his degree, to stay the course, and to fight." The LSU coach says those making allegations in Sports Illustrated of academic fraud at Oklahoma State, or improper payments to players from boosters, "weren't there long enough to figure it out," because they were dismissed from the program.

The Sports Illustrated series contains allegations from players at Oklahoma State between 2000 and 2011. Miles coached at Oklahoma State from 2001-04 before moving to LSU in 2005.
