The way to a coach’s heart…

The end of Orgeron’s presser yesterday, when he’s asked if there’s anyone he misses from his days at Ole Miss is three shades of greatness:

Q. I know it’s been ten years. Is there anybody there that you still talk to that’s in administration or at the school at all? Any connection?
ED ORGERON: No, you know, I used to stop at the Exxon and get a chicken-on-a-stick, and they were fantastic. I hope that cook is still there, and I can stop and say hello to her. That’s about all I remember.

Q. This is in Oxford?
ED ORGERON: Yeah, chicken-on-a-stick. It was phenomenal.

Q. Good chicken-on-a-stick?
ED ORGERON: The best I ever had! Not better than Raising Cane’s! (Laughter.)

Coach O has a sponsorship deal with Raising Cane’s, which is what led to the add on there (and the laughter).

Maybe you don’t have to be a character to be LSU’s head coach, but it doesn’t hurt.

    Does he look like a truck driver or what!

    Chicken on a stick ain’t bad. Any convenience store on Mississippi 61 will have it. Typically you can find decent fried chicken as well.


  3. It’s amazing how wins over Florida and Auburn can change the tone of a coach at a press conference.

    Good for Coach O. I thought that thing was about to spiral out of control after that Troy debacle.

    I’m convinced coach O used to be on TV in the 80’s.

    Watching kids head for the Chevron just off the square in Oxford for COS after the bars close is like geese migrating. Got to agree with Coach O, pretty tasty!
