There have been better days than Saturday for LSU this season.
First, there was the Leonard Fournette incident. He was seen shoving a Florida assistant coach in a pregame scuffle between the teams. Then, the Tigers running back, who was originally ruled out due to an ankle injury, ended up playing because he told the team he wanted to give it a go.
By the end of the day, LSU had lost to the Gators, 16-10. Not only that, but the Tigers couldn’t score on fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard line on the game’s final play.
SEC Network analyst Paul Finebaum was not impressed with LSU and more specifically, interim coach Ed Orgeron.
“I was for Ed Orgeron getting an opportunity, but he showed very poor leadership,” Finebaum said on “College Football Sunday” on ESPNU. “The end of the game was classic Les Miles. He clearly will not be the head coach going forward.”

Orgeron’s tenure at LSU started well after he won three straight games following Miles’ firing in late September. The Tigers have lost two of their last three games, although one was against top-ranked Alabama.
