Ed Orgeron weighs in on LSU's preparations for Auburn as another hurricane heads for the coast
It has been a busy hurricane season in the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, and now there’s another storm that could threaten the gulf coast states.
Hurricane Zeta is heading toward Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula at the moment, but is expected to make landfall in Louisiana or Alabama on Wednesday. That, obviously, poses a problem for LSU as the Tigers prepare for a game against Auburn on Saturday.
During his Monday press conference, coach Ed Orgeron sent his thoughts and prayers to the people of Louisiana first and foremost. Then, he added that LSU has an indoor facility, so he’s hoping preparations aren’t affected too much (via ASAPSports.com):
Always going to think about praying for the people of Louisiana first, no question. Then the safety of our young men, the safety of our coaching staff.
We have an indoor practice facility. We can practice, we’re going to practice. If we can’t, we can’t. I’m going to listen to what they tell me.
Hopefully we can prepare. I’m sure when the hurricane hits we’re all going to be safe and sound. Hopefully it doesn’t affect our preparation. It’s all about safety first.
Hopefully the storm weakens before it makes landfall, but for now, LSU is preparing for potential bad weather during midweek preparations.
