Report: An exhaustive internal review by Texas contradicts LSU's air-conditioning accusations
The latest shoe to drop in the back-and-forth between Texas and LSU over coach Ed Orgeron’s accusations that the visiting locker room at Texas did not have air-conditioning during their game last week is an internal review by Texas.
A report from Horns 247 said Texas found that, “the temperature in LSU’s locker room when the Tigers arrived at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium for last Saturday’s game against the Longhorns was 68 degrees, and the temperature after the game was 74 degrees, according to an internal report conducted by the Texas athletic department.”
Athletics director Chris Del Conte ordered the review, which revealed that air-conditioning sensors reported that the temperature rose from 68 degrees as players, coaches and staff began going in and out of the locker room.
On top of Louisiana Tech coach Skip Holtz refuting Orgeron’s claim that someone at Louisiana Tech told him about the lack of air-conditioning for the game the previous week, Del Conte confirmed that message. Orgeron claimed that based on the Louisiana Tech information, LSU brought fans in preparation for the conditions.
