Yahoo’s Pat Forde pounds LSU, names Tigers ‘dumpster fire of the month’

Yahoo’s Pat Forde has a sizzling assessment of LSU.

On Monday, the columnist named the Tigers the “dumpster fire of the month” in hot analysis of LSU’s situation following a mediocre 3-2 start. The low moment of LSU’s early stumble came last Saturday at Tiger Stadium, where Troy beat the Tigers 24-21.

Here’s part of Forde’s column:

Dumpster Fire of the Month: LSU (4). The Tigers wasted little time disappointing the fans who desperately wanted to believe that because Ed Orgeron understood LSU culture, he suddenly understood how to coach. They were an unspectacular 2-0, their new-and-improved offense very similar to the clunky model of recent years, and then Mississippi State blew the Tigers away. That was the warning sign. Full-on disaster arrived two weeks later, with the loss to Troy. With a 3-2 record and four road games remaining, LSU is headed for its worst record of the 21st century. Good job, good effort, Joe Alleva.

It’s hard to argue with any of this. It’s stunning how much LSU struggled in September. Beyond the Troy loss, which was bad enough, the Tigers took a huge black eye when they were crushed 37-7 against Mississippi State on Sept. 16.

LSU has a chance to pick up the pieces in October. But the Tigers need some good vibes fast. They take on Florida on Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
