College Gameday trashes LSU season’s prospects ahead of McNeese game: ‘I can’t watch it’ | LSU – New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans, Louisiana 2021-09-11 16:00:00 –

ESPN’s College GameDay didn’t come to LSU football with a butter knife at the morning show. It’s like a machete soaked in hot sauce.

Let’s just say that the show’s host wasn’t optimistic about the rest of the season before the show’s match against McNeeds at 7 pm on Saturday after LSU lost to UCLA 27-38.

“I don’t want to be insensitive to the fact that the expulsion of the hurricane” Aida “has definitely changed my preparations,” said Leke Davis. “But I felt that some of last year’s problems weren’t resolved because UCLA was in control of the game.”

To be fair, the Tigers are, well, struggling and changing as of last year. And Gameday’s host, Kirk Herbstreit, didn’t hesitate to ring the numbers that LSU fans are familiar with.

The team adjusted the SEC’s COVID-19 5-5 for 10 game seasons, abandoning an average of 35 points per game. After that, Harpstrite continued to talk about 13 failed tackles against UCLA. And no one said good things about the other side of the field.

“Their offensive line?” Said co-host David Pollack. “It’s a mess.”

But what impressed me most was the words the host chose and had nothing to do with the numbers.

“Last year and this year were some (swearing),” said Harpstrite. When his co-sponsor raised his eyebrows and laughed, he paused to cut through the air with his hands. “I can’t see it. I can’t see LSU make such a defense. It’s embarrassing for all those great players who played there.”

The last time I considered Tiger Stadium as Tiger Stadium, the real jet engine was loud, the ground shook, and the bourbon aftershave lotion smelled of Death Valley …

pain.

The organizers also asked about employment security for LSU coach Ed Orgelon after the opening round last year and this season.

Olgeron boasts an impressive 45-15 record, including a defeat to UCLA. But one-third of these losses came last year, the season after undefeated 2019, with the National Championships and Joe Burrow’s Heisman at the top. It’s a pretty swing.

Anyway, even if the College GameDay host didn’t seem very likely about this year’s Tigers, at least Davis opened the segment saying, “LSU will win today.”

So maybe it’s what you can hang your purple and gold hat on.

Advocate staff writers predict the outcome of LSU’s home opener for McNeese State University at Tiger Stadium on Saturday night.
