SECMD17 Notebook: Orgeron's experience key to success at LSU

12 July 2017

Where did they go?

Orgeron appeared at SEC Media Day on Monday, his first appearance since he was head coach of Ole Miss from 2006-08. But after losing in two overtimes to Texas A&M, getting blasted by Alabama and losing to SC, it turned into another disappointing season for coach Butch Jones - despite a season-ending victory over Nebraska in the Music City Bowl to finish 9-4 and become one of three SEC teams to win nine or more games, two years in a row (Florida and Alabama are the other two).

Saban would go on to win sole national championships at Alabama in 2009, '11, '12 and '15.

"I'm very grateful for my time at Ole Miss". He came back. We brought him to SEC Media Days today. LSU has lost six consecutive games to Alabama - starting with the 2011 national title game.

He knew he was in trouble that July - a decade ago.

"No. 1, I was going to have to treat the team exactly how I treat my sons, no different". Coaches tend to be more reserved in these settings, while at times players begin to allow their personalities to shine through.

It was the first chance for the media to ask anyone from LSU how they felt about the Florida Gators making them a homecoming opponent on October 7 at The Swamp, a year after the contentious decision to postpone the 2016 meeting because of the approach of Hurricane Matthew. But the interim position was not made permanent despite a mostly impressive 6-2 season in 2013. Of those 16, Orgeron, Muschamp, Rich Rodriguez, Mark Richt, Bobby Petrino, Mike Leach and David Cutcliffe were fired from their previous gig, although the ousters of Leach and Petrino had nothing to do with on-field results. They do a great job of evaluation.

"I understand that the head coach at LSU must beat Alabama", Orgeron said. "I wasn't ready", Orgeron said. On offense, his speed will make him a versatile tool for Canada "I know I have to be in shape, it's constant running, from the walk through to the end of practice, so many moving parts".

"Sounds weird when I talk", he chuckled.

After his firing Orgeron called former coaching mentors Jimmy Johnson and Pete Carroll. I thank Pete Carroll (whom he coached under at USC).

The former world number one will play 29th seed Juan Martin del Potro or Ernests Gulbis in a tough third round match on Saturday. Grigor Dimitrov , the 13th-seeded player from Bulgaria, beat Marcos Baghdatis 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 and will next face Sela.

One Tennessee player said Monday that Jones' heat is undeserved. I've been given the opportunity to represent right down the street from LSU.

He may have been ready to be a head coach.

Two days after the regular season, LSU announced he had earned the full-time job. No more ripped shirt after which Orgeron reportedly challenged his first Ole Miss team to a fight. I was given a great chance. Was given a great chance. I did things like I did as a defensive line coach and it didn't work. I did the things that I did at the defensive line coach and was very successful over the years. That led to a coaching career with more stops than a Greyhound local route. "Ever since those two minor changes, we've been 12-4, so that's the difference".

"He's in and out of prison, running the streets", Guice said of Derrick, arrested in the fall for a slew of charges, including attempted second-degree murder. "Guess we got to keep it up". The guy is unbelievable, he has so much energy.

"I think that it's lovely".

Then the comparisons with Leonard Fournette started.

"It's a little disrespectful", senior defensive lineman Kendal Vickers said.

When nobody is available for him to throw to, Chark said Etling just throws the football repeatedly against a wall. I mean we run the ball against everybody. "I don't take my shirt off and all that!" "It's something we want to keep the tradition going". My players feel that. "I don't want to get into all that". "I don't know when he will be back, but he will be back".

"I was born in Louisiana, and (the expectations) are very high", he said. I feel me being in the Heisman competition is a compliment to this team. We need to prepare. "And I get that".
