Ed Orgeron is in his first full-year as head coach of LSU. He secured the job because he was able to convince the athletic director that he was capable of building a program and staffing it with assistants and players capable of beating Alabama.
Tonight, LSU could not even beat Troy, a Sun Belt team from the state of Alabama. LSU lost to the Troy Trojans at home, 24-21. This conforms well with my earlier contention that the SEC is cold wet garbage and the only reason we don't treat it as such is because the conference also has Alabama.
Credit Troy, though. Troy thanked LSU for being such a gracious host to another Troy win. The Trojans improved to 4-1 with just the season-opening loss at Boise State.
Hey @LSU, thanks for having us down for homecoming! We really enjoyed it!— Troy University (@TROYUnews) October 1, 2017
One member of the Troy Trojans team was not as gracious.

The loss drops LSU to 3-2 and, in case you were wondering, we're already asking these questions about Ed Orgeron.
Might be a good time to remind folks that Ed Orgeron has a $12 million buyout for this season.— Andrew Lopez (@_Andrew_Lopez) October 1, 2017
In case you wanted to suggest anything.
