BATON ROUGE, La. — As they always do, members of the LSU football team took to Twitter on Saturday night and Sunday morning to address their team’s surprising 24-21 loss at the hands of Sun Belt opponent Troy.

But it wasn’t just current players who were disappointed by the loss. Some of LSU’s recent and most notable alums also expressed shock at how far the program fell Saturday night.

Here are some of the most notable reactions:

Alums speak out

From former Thorpe Award winner Patrick Peterson to 2016 senior Tashawn Bower, former LSU players weren’t happy with the Tigers’ loss.

But no alum spoke out more directly than ESPN analyst Booger McFarland. After criticizing LSU on the air over the last two weeks, McFarland was even more direct on Twitter this weekend.

McFarland wasn’t the only former Tigers player analyzing LSU for ESPN. Marcus Spears joined in on the action too.

As for the 2017 LSU Tigers?

Obviously, the players still on the team couldn’t speak as negatively about the game as people like McFarland or Peterson. But that doesn’t mean the Tigers shied away from the spotlight.

That said, running back Derrius Guice stayed uncharacteristically quiet after missing the game recovering from his knee injury. As did Arden Key, who was a nonfactor on the LSU defense for the third week in a row since returning from his shoulder injury.

Without the big personalities of Guice and Key taking up Twitter space, a few of LSU’s less-heralded players filled the vacuum with words of shock and encouragement.

If one player was looking on the bright side, it was long snapper Blake Ferguson. Ferguson posted a picture taken of him and Louisiana congressman Steve Scalise before the game, putting the scope of the loss a little bit more in perspective.
