Ed Orgeron, LSU players not bothered by Florida's homecoming scheduling

BYU’s athletic teams do not compete on Sundays. More

The 2017 football season can not come fast enough for LSU and head coach Ed Orgeron. "I've always wanted to be a head coach".

"I am very grateful for my time at Ole Miss", Orgeron said. "He runs the ball, like Warren Sapp played defensive line for me at Miami". I had to find out why I wasn't successful. Didn't have success. But there were some things that I needed to change.

After his firing Orgeron called former coaching mentors Jimmy Johnson and Pete Carroll. Orgeron had been as assistant on Johnson's Miami staff and Carroll's USC staff. "He said, 'Coach, I can't go, I can't play,'" Orgeron said Monday at the SEC Media Days, via NFL.com. Maybe I wouldn't be talking to you guys. "That is the biggest thing for me, seeing him being a leader out there and making sure everyone else is ready because a lot of people have to learn this new offense, the freshman that just came in this year, they have a ways to go like Myles Brennan, and just seeing his passion and energy means much more to him".

"I don't think it's going to be that long", Orgeron said. In his last tour of duty as an SEC head coach, Orgeron recruited National Football League talent to Oxford but won just 10 of 35 games. "But, we have done it".

"We talked to our young football team about this all spring - compete but don't compare", Jones said. He's since been an interim head coach at two powerhouse programs, 6-2 at USC in 2013 and 6-2 past year at LSU, and believes that's enough to ease concerns about his fitness for the permanent job in Baton Rouge. In a Citrus Bowl victory over Lousiville, Guice torched the Cardinals for 138 yards and a touchdown.


The four day event is headlined today by remarks from SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey along with representatives from LSU, Arkansas and Tennessee.

"I was born in Louisiana, and (the expectations) are very high", he said. "We need to win, and I get that". The same year that Orgeron went 3-9 and got fired, Miles led the Tigers to a national championship. But after losing in two overtimes to Texas A&M, getting blasted by Alabama and losing to SC, it turned into another disappointing season for coach Butch Jones - despite a season-ending victory over Nebraska in the Music City Bowl to finish 9-4 and become one of three SEC teams to win nine or more games, two years in a row (Florida and Alabama are the other two). By comparison, Alabama has lost a total of three SEC during the past four years. After plenty of sniping back and forth, the game was reschedule for November 19 at LSU.

Orgeron said that Key definitely will not practice when preseason camp opens on July 31. "Coach Saban has done a great job". Alabama is the benchmark. "I think the way to beat Alabama is to recruit on their level". "He flourished past year in the last five or six games". We didn't. I don't know if it's that big of a gap. "We got them at home this year, right?"

LSU opens its season against BYU in Houston on September 2.

"It is what it is", said Orgeron, referring to his team's SEC schedule. "And I feel like we have that this year, so it just makes the game even more exciting". "We are putting in a lot of extra film work, especially in the summer when it is a lot of player-led stuff".
