BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - No. 1 LSU was once again indoors as the preparations to get ready to face No. 4 Oklahoma continue for the Tigers.
They were in “shells” on Tuesday, December 17. LSU head coach Ed Orgeron is not letting the announcement that he was named AP Coach of the Year effect his style.
He and the staff were a little irritated with the Tigers at the start of practice.
“Do it again!!” Coach O could be heard yelling.
The players quickly responded and moved with a purpose during the time cameras were allowed to roll.
Former LSU tight end Foster Moreau, who currently plays for the Oakland Raiders, was on hand to watch Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and the rest of the Tigers work indoors.
Following the workout, the Tigers shared their thoughts on Burrow winning the prestigious honor and where they were when the announcement was made. And while individual awards can create jealously among teammates and even coaches, LSU says that’s not taking place with this program.
Later in the evening, it was another packed house for Orgeron’s radio show at TJ Ribs. Coach O stayed 30 minutes after the show ended in an attempt to satisfy all the autograph and picture requests. He said Burrow made the most of his platform in New York City, bringing attention and awareness to the less fortunate people in the state of Ohio.
LSU will take on Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta on December 28.
Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m.
