It’s game day again in Baton Rouge. And for the first time in a long time, that doesn’t include former LSU coach Les Miles.
The feelings brought on by that fact vary from Tigers fan to Tigers fan, as the fan base still seems somewhat split on the decision to hand the keys of the program to former Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron for the rest of the season as the administration begins a search for its next permanent head coach.
But no matter pro or anti-Miles, LSU fans want to see the Tigers win. So as LSU prepared for its game against Missouri on Saturday evening at Tiger Stadium, fans flocked to the tailgating scene with fresh T-shirts.
ESPN college football writer Chris Low spotted one that he deemed in a class of its own:

Playing off the “Make America Great Again” moniker used by presidential candidate Donald Trump, the T-shirt features Orgeron and first-year Tigers defensive coordinator Dave Aranda as the “winning ticket” to make the Tigers great again in 2016.
With Alabama still on the schedule and only one conference loss on the record, there’s a chance that Orgeron and Aranda could rally the 2-2 Tigers and make a run at the SEC West title.
This guy believes … do you?
