Booger McFarland on Coach O, LSU: 'There's cause for concern'
The start of the Ed Orgeron era in Baton Rouge hasn’t gotten off to the best start, as the LSU Tigers are currently 3-2 after a disappointing home loss to Troy on Saturday night.
Many fans are regretting the Coach O hiring and there has been plenty of bickering in the locker room and among the coaching staff.
On Monday morning’s edition of SportsCenter on ESPN, former LSU DL and current ESPN analyst Booger McFarland said he doesn’t think Coach O’s job is in jeopardy just yet, but suggested that the first-year coach gather his staff together and air their grievances:
“I don’t think he’s going to get fired after five games or fired after one year, but there’s cause for concern when you look at the lack of effort, the lack of enthusiasm, the soft play on both lines of scrimmage,” he said. “If you’re Coach O, hopefully you have a ‘Come to Jesus’ meeting, not with your team, but with your staff, because it starts with them.”
The road doesn’t get any easier for the Tigers, as they travel to Gainesville on Saturday afternoon to take on the improving Florida Gators.
Games against Auburn and Ole Miss also loom before a much-needed bye week for the Tigers, so things may get worse before they get better for Coach O’s squad.
