LSU is not doing well right now.

The Tigers are off to a sluggish start, getting crushed by Mississippi State and then losing in shocking fashion to Troy this past Saturday during homecoming.

And on Monday, ESPN’s Booger McFarland, who played on the LSU defensive line during his college career, called out the current Tigers and their coach for their lackluster displays in the season’s first month.

“There’s cause for concern when you look at the lack of effort, the lack of enthusiasm, the soft play on both lines of scrimmage,” McFarland said on SportsCenter Monday morning, according to Saturday Down South.

And McFarland argued that the blame lays less on the players and more on head coach Ed Orgeron and his staff. Although he did back off the ‘fire Coach O’ talk that circulated throughout the Internet after Troy finished off the upset on Saturday.

“If you’re Coach O, hopefully you have a ‘Come to Jesus’ meeting, not with your team, but with your staff, because it starts with them,” he said. “I don’t think he’s going to get fired after five games or fired after one year.”

LSU’s road doesn’t get any easier this week as the Tigers travel to Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators.
