Regardless of how fans feel about Ed Orgeron’s performance, his players play hard for him. The Tigers were set up to get steamrolled by Alabama but could’ve won the game with competent quarterback play. Jimbo Fisher has publicly denied his interest in the LSU job and he’s got better players but this is Orgeron’s last hurrah at Baton Rouge. Expect his players to be on point in what could be a defensive slugfest.
