Former Ole Miss head football coach & USC assistant Ed Orgeron has been hired by LSU, per NBC Sports.
The Larosen native was a defensive line coach for the New Orleans Saints in 2008 and for Lane Kiffin at Tennessee in 2009 and USC from 2010-13. When Kiffin was fired in the middle of the 2013 season, Orgeron finished it as USC's interim head coach and led the Trojans to a 6-2 record. He was not retained when interviewing for the full time head coaching job after the 2013 season.
Orgeron has coached the defensive line through his career, and ESPN reports Orgeron will be LSU's defensive line coach.
LSU received some good news today when the Southeastern Conference (SEC) office announced the LSU Tigers and Mississippi State Bulldogs game on Sat. Sept. 20 will kickoff at 6 p.m. in Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge and be televised on ESPN. The game is the first SEC game of the year for LSU.
The Tigers defeated Sam Houston State 56-0 Saturday and will face the University of Louisiana-Monroe Sat. Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. That game also will be played at Tiger Stadium.
The LSU Tigers came out the gate much stronger this week than last week in yesterday's game versus the Sam Houston State Bearkats. The Tigers scored 20 first quarter points against the Bearkats to help them go on to win 56-0. The Tigers controlled the game from the onset with an interception by LSU's Dwayne Thomas. After that, the Bearkats were in trouble the rest of the night. Here's how the scoring went for the Tigers.
Below are some photos in and around Tiger Stadium prior to the 6:30 p.m. kickoff between LSU & Sam Houston State.
Go ahead and insert your corn dog jokes here. I know they're coming. Now all LSU fans can smell like the university with this cologne and perfume from Masik Collegiate Fragrances.

The LSU baseball team is hot — super hot — and it could not come at a better time. LSU bats once again came to life this morning as the Tigers baseball team scorched Vanderbilt 11-1 in the SEC baseball matchup. The game was called after seven innings due to a run rule.
LSU starting pitcher Jared Poche went 7 innings, giving up one run and five hits to earn his 9th win of the year. Alex Bregman led the Tiger hitting attack with three hits, and five RBIs with three of those coming on a monster home run in the 4th inning.
With today's win over Vanderbilt, the 8th ranked Tigers (41-14-1) move to the winner's bracket. Their next game will be at 4:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon against the winner of the Ole Miss-Arkansas contest, which will be played later today.
LSU announced today that three players are leaving the basketball program.

In over 80 starts with the Tigers, Anthony Hickey had 360 career assists and actually led the SEC this past season in assist-to-turnover ratio. He also averaged 9.4 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
Malik Morgan averaged 4.9 points and 3.0 rebounds. The former John Curtis star injured his knee in February in a game vs Auburn.
Shane Hammink averaged 1.6 points and 1.4 rebounds per game over his LSU career.
