After LSU notched one of the biggest wins in school history on Saturday night, the Tigers followed up their colossal win over arch rival Alabama with another headline that LSU fans can’t help but tally as another L for Alabama at the hands of the no. 1 ranked team in the country.
An unidentified LSU player went viral after Live streaming head coach Ed Orgeron going berserk with his players while celebrating the biggest win of his career.
The video picks up Orgeron animatedly belting to his players: “WE’RE GOING TO BEAT THEIR A** IN RECRUITING, WE’RE GOING TO BEAT THEIR A**EVERY TIME THEY SEE US. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?? ROLL TIDE, WHAT?! F**K YOU!”
The locker room naturally then went bonkers.
If you’re not familiar with Orgeron’s reputation, he appears like a timeless relic of the ‘tough guy’ era of old time ball coaches the likes of Bo Schembechler, Barry Switzer, Woody Hayes, and Bear Bryant, who resided as the antithesis of the modern ‘wussification’ of the sport.
Orgeron's burly build, weathered complexion, and raspy Cajun accent make him the most identifiable personality in the sport, and possibly the greatest archetype ever produced for the classic football coach of the past.
however, with LSU now the favorite to win the National Championship, Orgeron is certainly living in the present and more importantly the future. At one time a pipedream candidate to ever become a head coach at a major program again, the longtime assistant signed an extension earlier this year that guarantees him $3.5 million per year through 2021.
Despite the perceived ‘awesomeness’ Orgeron’s video incited on social media, uncensored Live streams of locker room chatter have become a toxic liability in the modern age of smartphones and apps that let you upload audio and video in real time.
Disgraced former NFL player Antonio Brown came under fire from the Steelers organization in early 2017 after Brown secretly filmed head coach Mike Tomlin addressing the Steelers in the locker room after their AFC Divisional Round victory over the Chiefs. The almost 17-minute long video at one point has Tomlin saying of upcoming playoff opponent New England: “We spotted those a**holes a day and a half… so be it. We’ll be ready for their a**.
The NFL specifically outlaws players from posting anything on social media 90 minutes before kickoff and then through the postgame interviews. Brown was fined $10,000 for the stunt.
The Patriots would end up blowing out the Steelers 36-17, but many called Tomlin’s crude yet ordinary remarks in private ‘bulletin board material’ when made public.
Just this past October, St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt was exposed on a Live stream by a St. Louis player after their triumphant Game 5 series-clinching win over the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS.
Cardinals player Randy Arozarena live streamed a profanity laced speech from Shildt saying to his jubilant players: “The Braves start some sh*t and we finished the sh*t! And that’s how we roll! No one f**ks with us, ever! EVER! I don’t give a f**k who we play, we’re going to f**k them up! We’re going to take it right to them the whole f**king way! We’re gonna kick their f**king a**!”
Arozarena would later apologize.
The Cardinals would end up getting sweep the next round at the hands of the eventual World Series champion Washington Nationals.
