Ed Orgeron again talks A/C at Texas, says LSU will 'have a plan or two' when Horns visit Baton Rouge
As the saying goes, what comes around, goes around.
Texas reportedly didn’t supply LSU any air conditioning in the visitor’s locker room at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium during Saturday’s showdown between the two highly-ranked teams. When asked whether the Tigers might return the favor next season when the Longhorns visit Baton Rouge, LSU coach Ed Orgeron chuckled and gave a coy response:
“I’m sure we have a plan or two to make them as comfortable as they can possibly be.”
Orgeron added that his team was prepared for the heat and that no LSU players needed an IV at halftime. He also said he didn’t think it was “that hot” on the field.
Here are a few other topics Orgeron covered in his Wednesday morning press conference:
- On LB Patrick Queen: Excellent, he came here as a RB. He has a great mom and dad, great young man… he was battling with Jacob (Phillips) and I’m telling you, when he is playing he makes us better.
- On TE Stephen Sullivan: He has been doing fantastic, if we can’t use him at TE, we will use him as a WR. We need to find ways to get him the ball out there.
- On offensive development: There is another level and it starts with protection, we gave up 2 sacks we shouldn’t have given up… protection issues in the red zone could be better… I don’t think you can ask for more passing game production than what we had against Texas.
- On short drives: There are times when — here is the dilemma, you want to slow it down to give the D some rest but when the D goes out there, they have to stop them. We felt like every time we had the ball, we had to score because we couldn’t stop them… When we play well on defense, we will slow it down.. We have to work together — offense and defense — on the tempo of the game.
