One of the noticeable changes LSU interim head coach Ed Orgeron has made in his first few weeks is consistently bringing back former players to speak with the current team.
Wednesday’s speaker series might have been the most star-studed yet with Matt Flynn, Marlon Favorite and Skyler Green stopping by to talk some pigskin.

Flynn famously led the Tigers to the 2007 National Championship, passing for 2,407 yards that season with 21 touchdowns and a 56.1 completion percentage. He was taken by the Green Bay Packers in the last round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
Green also played four seasons with the Tigers and was a significant contributor in three of them. His sophomore season in 2003 was his best, catching 48 passes for 519 yards and five touchdowns. He was a fourth round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2006.
Favorite was a junior on the 2007 championship team and had 28 tackles while playing in 11 games that season. He totaled 77 tackles in his time in Baton Rouge. The championship team went 12-2 (6-2) and beat Tennessee in the SEC title game and went on to beat Ohio State for the national title
