College football is one of the most overanalyzed and over-criticized sports in America. Whether that's paying players through NIL or extending the college football playoffs there is always something with college football. And one thing that has been argued since Joe Burrow left Ohio State for LSU is the transfer portal.
The 2021-2022 season for the LSU football team has been rocky, to say the least. From losing Myles Brennan early in the season to the firing of Coach O, to the loss of Stingley and Boutte it was a rough season for the Tigers. It is only right that the pain continued into the Texas Bowl where LSU lost to Kansas State 20-42.
The college football coaching carrousel has now paired another coach and university. Finally, LSU makes their hire. According to Pete Thamel LSU is expected to hire the Notre Dame Coach and make an announcement tomorrow.
This season has been rocky, to say the least for the Tigers. From losing major players like Myles Brennan to Derek Stingley to Coach O losing his job. The Tigers were on a 3 game losing streak before the win against UL Monroe. The Tigers beat UL Monroe 27-14.
The LSU Fighting Tigers were in Death Valley Saturday night as they faced the Arkansas Razorbacks. In a very sloppy and boring game, Arkansas beat the Tigers 16-13. This was the first time the Razorbacks had won in Death Valley since 2015. This also is the first time that LSU has lost 6 games since 1999, and they are one loss away from a losing season.
Oxford was bustling today from the tailgating to the Eli Manning jersey retirement at halftime. Today everything just went Ole Miss's way, as they beat LSU 31-17. This was the first game for the Tigers since finding out that Coach O won't be returning next year. Even a banged-up Matt Corral was not enough for the Tigers to take out the rebels today in Oxford.
Coach Ed Orgeron of the LSU Tigers football team encountered a troll who called into his radio show recently. When that caller made an inappropriate joke, Coach O responded with a controversial saying regarding a, "...nice little fishing hole" that has many reacting on social media.
