LSU football is the No. 1 topic of discussion every day on SEC Country’s One Team, One Podcast. Host Carter ‘The Power” Bryant shares why it is nonsensical to blame Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron for Patrick Surtain Jr., a 2018 5-star cornerback, choosing Alabama on National Signing Day. Also, Bryant is joined by SEC Country recruiting ace Sam Spiegelman to discuss his shock of Surtain Jr.’s decision after covering him for years, what the Tigers plan to do next to fill needs, the positives of the 2018 class and more.
Bad-mouthing Ed Orgeron for Patrick Surtain Jr. is silly
Orgeron, defensive backs coach Corey Raymond and the rest of the LSU staff was blindsided when Surtain Jr. chose the Crimson Tide late Tuesday night after having the Tigers as his leader for two years. The change of heart was a destructive ripple effect on the rest of the program. Coach O handled the situation like any other coach would.
Also, Spiegelman chats everything you need to know about the 2018 class and gives you an early look at 2019.
