Saturday proved to be a tough day for LSU fans as the Tigers fell in their season opener against Mississippi State.

It started out rough when news came out that star CB Derek Stingley Jr. did not play in the game because he was hospitalized. But then the Mike Leach offense arrived, and rolled up several offensive records.

For one LSU fan, though, frustration boiled over and he launched a drinking glass toward a television mounted at restaurant. This is obviously going to be a different season for the Tigers than the special 2019 campaign. But sometimes it takes a little more games for the new roster and lineup to sink in.

Coach Ed Orgeron and the Tigers will get a bit easier opponent this week when they take on Vanderbilt. Orgeron had a special message for those, especially the players, looking to bounce back from the loss.

“I told them, ‘Put it on me,’” Orgeron said. “When they win, I give them the credit. When they don’t, I got to take the blame. I have to coach better. I asked everyone to look at themselves in the mirror. See what we’re doing. Let’s get better. Let’s stick together as a football team. We still have a lot of football left.”
