LSU upsets Miami 33-17 in season opener

By JAMES MORAN | Tiger Rag Editor


ARLINGTON, Texas — Between the unknowns on offense — the new coordinator and quarterback, the unproven backs and receivers — and an August of off-the-field noise — the suspensions, the transfers, the bleak projections — it felt as difficult as ever to get a feel for what LSU would look like once the season opener finally arrived.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron said only that his team would be better than people on the outside though, and even that was met with skeptical snickering from most who heard the coach’s matter-of-fact response leading into opening night.

That was before Orgeron and his Tigers went out and put together the kind of statement performance in front of a national audience that’ll be impossible to ignore.
