Are The Chances Of Coach “O” Staying At LSU Done?
After the Florida Gators beat the LSU Tigers 16-10 in Baton Rouge, there was a lot to be said about Florida's Coach Jim McElwain and his post-game comments. But what about the other coach in the equation?
LSU's interim Head Coach Ed Orgeron was positioning to take over the LSU program full-time next season if he could close out the regular season with two wins. He just had to beat Florida and Texas A&M...but what happens now. Here's more on that from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"After a disappointing 16-10 loss to Florida, interim head coach Ed Orgeron’s chances of keeping the job on a permanent basis seem to be dwindling. The Tigers had plenty of chances to beat the Gators, but there were too many mistakes, including five trips into the red zone and coming away with just one touchdown. Safety John Battle says the coaches are not the blame for this loss.
LSU came into this season with championship aspirations, instead they are 6-4 heading into the regular season finale. The Tigers lost by a combined 21 points in the four losses. Quarterback Danny Etling says they’ve learned every play matters in major college football.
Orgeron says beating Florida would have been a great win for the program, but now they have to focus on the regular season finale against Texas A&M on Thanksgiving night…"
