LSU head coach Ed Orgeron destroys hecklers ahead of UCLA game

Ed Orgeron, LSU, UCLA

LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron does not care about your feelings today, most especially if you are cheering for the UCLA Bruins to win Saturday night.

Orgeron and the No. 16 Tigers are looking to have a strong start to the season against the unranked UCLA squad of Chip Kelly. LSU enters the game coming off a letdown 2020 college football season in which they finished with a 5-5 overall record — which was after they went undefeated all the way into winning the national title with Joe Burrow under center for the team.

LSU fans don’t just want to see the Tigers win. They are hoping to see dramatic improvement on the team’s defense that was so hard to watch a season ago. In those five games in 2020, the Tigers allowed 34.9 points per game, 95th in the nation. Not only that, but LSU was also 124th nationally in total defense, with 492.0 total yards allowed per contest.

As for UCLA., the Bruins don’t need to shake off the rust of the long offseason. After all, they have already played a game this season. They defeated the Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors last week, 44-10. If Orgeron wants Bruins fans to bring their “a**,” UCLA, meanwhile, hopes that LSU’s defense will show up with the same porous stop unit as it had last season.
