LSU football on the mend

When LSU lost to Troy on homecoming two weekends ago, it was the program’s first home loss to a non-conference opponent since the year 2000.
What ensued was a rough week, but the Tigers came out better for having gone through it. On Saturday, they went on the road and took down number 21 Florida, perhaps saving their season in the process.
The 17-16 triumph came after a long week of tougher practices, two players-only meetings, and another involving the athletic director, head coach Ed Orgeron, and both coordinators.
Coach O isn’t batting his eyes at his team’s resolve based on his first-hand experience. “No one blinked. We lost three offensive linemen in the first half and we had freshman going in there, guys with not a lot of experience, we didn’t blink. And we weren’t going to blink. This team made a decision on Monday that they were going to do everything to win this football game under any conditions and we did that. It shows the kind of football team that we can be, but we have to pay attention to the details. I was in those meetings all week and they were not going to be denied. It wasn’t going to be because of a lack of effort or enthusiasm.”
Next up for LSU is a home game versus Auburn at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.
