ESPN’s Greg McElroy: LSU coaches got manhandled by Troy in Saturday’s loss

LSU’s loss to Troy left a bunch of fans scratching their heads as they exited Tiger Stadium on Saturday night. Blame has been tossed all over the program, but Greg McElroy pointed squarely at the sideline.

Speaking with Paul Finebaum on Monday, ESPN college football analyst Greg McElroy laid into coach Ed Orgeron and his staff during the team’s 24-21 loss to the Trojans.

LSU had a 49-game home win streak against nonconference opponents that dated back to 2000 and was the second only to Miami’s FBS record stretch of 51 consecutive wins.

Here’s what McElroy had to say.

LSU’s game against Troy was supposed to be a chance for the Tigers to bounce back from back-to-back disappointing performances before the team’s big game at Florida. The contest turned out to be anything but a confidence-booster.

In fact, Troy led 17-0 before LSU even got on the scoreboard with four minutes left in the third quarter. The Tigers never led in the game.

LSU has now started 3-2 in consecutive seasons after not doing so previously since 2004, which was Nick Saban’s final year in Baton Rouge.
