Former LSU head coach Ed Orgeron was famous for his “one team, one heartbeat” saying during his tenure, especially during the 2019 national championship season.

The Tigers, of course, had one of the best teams in college football history, led by Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Joe Burrow, when they finished undefeated and thrashed Clemson 42-25 in the College Football Playoff. Orgeron went from assistant to interim to permanent head coach during his time at LSU. The rise was as dramatic as the fall.

So, naturally, when Texas A&M tweeted out a hype video Friday evening with the text, “One team. One heartbeat. One family,” it piqued the interest of LSU fans.

It doesn’t mean that other teams can’t use the saying, but using the saying of one of your biggest conference rivals won’t make some fans happy. And indeed it didn’t.

Texas A&M hosts Florida at noon ET on Saturday, while LSU hosts Alabama at 7 p.m. ET. It’s going to be a fun Saturday Down South.
