Homecoming spoiled: Troy upsets No. 25 LSU in Death Valley

Does Ed Orgeron's Huge Buyout Mean His Job is Safe

We interrupt this coaching honeymoon for a startling announcement.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron said a change was coming. At least for now.

Troy beat No. 25 LSU 24-21 on a disastrous night for Tigers football, two weeks after a 30-point loss to Mississippi State.

As expected, LSU's loss to Troy knocked the Tigers out of the poll major polls. "It wasn't about Troy tonight". Troy is a Sun Belt team, and I fully expect the Tigers to extend both streaks.

Start a new streak: LSU's last non-conference home loss was to UAB on September 23, 2000, which was Nick Saban's first season in Baton Rouge. We needed a boost. "That's the bottom line".

Troy led 10-0 at halftime.

The stunning defeat raises the concerns over whether Ed Orgeron is the right man for the job. "And we've got to stop them on defense". "They're hurting. We've got to do some soul-searching".

That came quickly. Then again, so has the crumbling of the LSU football program, which had already been blown out by Mississippi State and sits at 3-2, with wins over BYU, Chattanooga and Syracuse, with a game at Florida waiting this week. "It's about everybody looking in the mirror". "I always look at myself first".

"We've won three national championships; we've played against the "who's who's" of college football over the last 15 years and had some wins at our place". Dave Aranda and Matt Canada get paid lots of money due to their reputations as being the best young coordinators in the country.

Silvers said he didn't even see the kick. We've got to do some soul searching.

Troy is a good, competitive Group of Five team.

Hearne was a detective with the Criminal Investigation Division of the Polk County Police Department. "It's a senseless killing". The other officer injured in the shooting was identified as David Goodrich, who's reportedly only been on the job for 6 months.

Scalise, the House majority whip and a LSU graduate from New Orleans, is recovering from a gun shot wound in the hip on June 14 while practicing for the congressional baseball team in Alexandria, Virginia.

Tigers freshman Myles Brennan replaced Danny Etling at quarterback in the third quarter Saturday and threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Foster Moreau to cut the deficit to 17-7, but Brennan's interception on LSU's next possession led to Troy's 10-play, 64-yard drive for a 24-7 lead. Somehow, the Tigers made a game of it, teasing an annoyed fan base.

On the game's first offensive play, LSU tailback Nick Brossette fumbled after a 5-yard gain when he was hit by Troy free safety Cedarius Rookard.

Irish quarterback Brandon Wimbush was 7 of 18 for 119 yards and three touchdowns to go with 11 carries for 36 yards and another score. I wish we had a little bit better attention to detail with what we are doing and we got a little worn out.

The coach said Etling could have started the third quarter but he wanted to give Brennan more seasoning for if he needed to play later in the season.

The Tigers drove 62 yards in seven plays in the second quarter, but Jack Gonsoulin missed a 35-yard field goal with 2:32 to play in the half.

The point-difference in the game?

Troy 17, LSU 7 (END Q3): The Tigers are driving. The biggest thing was understand we had a whistle start. "They said there was 2 seconds left".

Legassey then hit a 37-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter for the 10-0 lead.

The three players were integral parts of LSU's 28-21 upset of No. 1 Florida 20 years ago on October 11, 1997, in Tiger Stadium. He also kept alive a late scoring drive after scrambling right on a play that started at the 5, dodging three Hokies, shaking free from an ankle tackle and eventually turning back upfield at the 23.
