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.
