3 reasons hiring Ed Orgeron was a mistake

Troy wide receiver Emanuel Thompson is stopped just shot of a touchdown by LSU linebacker Devin White in the first half of an NCAA college football game in Baton Rouge La. Saturday Sept. 30 2017

And, this time, they hung on for an epic victory.

The men of Troy took it to the mighty LSU Tigers Saturday night in Baton Rouge, beating them 24-21.

After Troy missed a 36-yard field-goal attempt, the Tigers drove to the Trojans' 18-yard line, but LSU placekicker Jack Gonsoulin missed a 35-yard field goal attempt with 2:32 left in the first half. The victory marked Troy's second win over a ranked opponent since the school moved to the FBS in 2001.

Even so, Troy also faced third-and-long a lot in the second quarter.

Perhaps we should have seen this coming when Mississippi State manhandled LSU two weeks ago in Starkville. The drive was helped by a 74-yard rumble from Jordan Chunn, Chunn carried the Trojan rushing game on the night.

Over the course of the afternoon there was work on everything from the basic fundamentals of the game with players working at several stations on the court on free throw block outs, dribbling and pressure free throw shooting to offensive setups and defensive drills. It's like I told our football team, there's absolutely no excuses. We've got to do some soul searching. "I've got to do my best job right now".

Jordan Chunn did his job with 191 rushing yards and a touchdown to help move Troy to 4-1 on the season, while LSU fell to 3-2 with a hard SEC schedule still ahead.

Troy cornerback Blace Brown, whose interception closed out the game, said this year's team was playing for the previous teams who had fallen just short against LSU. Sirk rushed for 75 yards on 11 carries in the first half but was held to 12 yards on six carries in the second.

With seven seconds left in the second quarter and no timeouts, Silvers threw a crossing pattern to wide receiver John Johnson, who was tackled at the LSU 20 as the clock appeared to have run out. Barkley, who entered the game leading the FBS in all-purpose yards per game (253.3), finished with 205. LSU was a 20.5-point favorite against the Trojans, according to the Westgate Superbook, but the Tigers lacked initiative from the opening kick, fell behind by double digits before halftime and then neither possessed the resolve nor executed well enough to dig themselves out of a 17-point hole in the fourth quarter. The kick capped an 11-play 60-yard drive for the Trojans.

Troy stunned No. 25 LSU 24-21 on Saturday, marking a horrific loss for first-year coach Ed Orgeron and athletic director Joe Alleva. Troy drove to the LSU 11 before linebacker Donnie Alexander ripped the ball away from Chunn and Michael Divinity Jr. recovered at the LSU 8. In return, they got a tough game, one in which they trailed the entire way before losing.

"They were there for us and we got to be there for them tonight".

Alex Hornibrook passed for 197 yards and a touchdown, settling down after two interceptions in the first half. The Tigers lead the all-time series against the Trojans, 2-0, having won home games in 2004 and 2008.

That fact just adds insult to injury after what happened to LSU on Saturday, a loss to Troy that will make winning back public support a tough battle very early in Orgeron's tenure. He had gained five yards, but safety Cedarius Rookard rocked him with a hit, and he fumbled.
