Them Texas folks were right kindly hosts, according to Coach O.
No. 4 LSU’s offense came out hot in Saturday night’s 45-38 win over No. 12 Texas at Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium with 573 yards that included 471 passing yards from Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow. The offense wasn’t the only thing that was hot, though. Tigers coach Ed Orgeron said Monday during his scheduled press conference that the locker room was pretty toasty as well.
“I called Louisiana Tech, and they told us about it,” he said. “So we did some things in the dressing room that were better. It wasn’t great, but it was better. At least we had air in there. They didn’t have air. We had some blowers in there.”
Texas’ AD strenuously objected.
Now I don’t have a dog in this hunt (although, let’s not forget that Georgia travels to Austin in the foreseeable future), but if I have to choose sides, I’d go with LSU here. For one thing, why would Orgeron bother to make up a story like that after a big road victory?
Second, and perhaps more relevantly, how many folks would loudly proclaim their devotion to “the efforts we put forth in hosting our guests” and stick the visiting band in the upper deck of the stadium?
That’s some pride you got there, ‘Horns.
