LSU senior defensive lineman Christian LaCouture spoke to the media on Monday and said that the fans that are calling for Ed Orgeron to be fired are disrespectful and that the blame shouldn't fall all on him, but also on the players.
quote:

I think it's disrespectful and it's absurd," LaCouture said.

"Coach O is a guy that has put everything into this football program. We didn't execute. He had a great gameplan for us this week. Blame it on us. Me being one of the leaders of the team... I didn't help prepare the team well enough."

"When people say stuff like that us, it really hurts us as a team. We feel bad for Coach O because he does not deserve that at all.

So you guys haven't been motivated enough to play harder for the guy? It'll cost the man his job!

it is on the players and the coaches. You lost to Troy dude, you should be hurting as a team.

Absolutely a complete effort(or lack thereof) by players and coaches.

While I was watching I kept saying to myself..."this is a great gameplan". Let's do this same gameplan next week too.

We understand that execution was an issue. My question is WHY was execution an issue? Discipline? Lack of experience? How do you correct it going forward?

Seriously? This clown was fired from Ole Miss and broke a 17 year winning streak. Another dim-witted Line Coach who should never have been hired.

If Ed Oregon and our dim-witted Athletic Director had ANY class, both would resign immediately.

what's absurd is defending trash

Just glad the Troy loss is bringing national coverage to Alleva and resurfacing his mismanagement at Duke, including poor hires--one leading to a scandal--and the handling of the Duke lacrosse case. Duke had to be shocked, let alone relieved after the hire.

So the losses don't hurt enough to get mad, but calling out bad coaching does? CL's only made a handful of plays anyway. If he made more plays himself, maybe they wouldn't have to feel this way.

Leadership is not words. It is actions. Don’t say a damn thing. Prove the fans wrong. You Christian and Orgeron. I have faith in you trying hard. I have zero faith in the guy that you’re defending.

It's hard for a kid who is in the middle of a coaching melt down to know what's really going on. Culture is to protect the team, coach is part of that. Nothing but a natural response from the kid, but it's misguided. Coach O, Alleva, and King need to be out. Now.

I find their play against Troy St absurd.

Lacouture made the mistake of believing the fans calling for O to be fired are either reasonable or intelligent. The same people who propped Les up for 4 miserable seasons are not giving CEO even one season.

Yeah, I don't think we need player advice on coaching decisions. That's backfired on LSU twice now.

I keep hearing he same thing over and over. We didn’t execute, we didn’t play like we should have, we made mistakes, etc. 5 games in, when is this going to get fixed? I don’t care how young the team is, there is no excuse to lose to Troy. There is no excuse for Troy to win in the trenches. Quit making excuses and do your jobs!!!!!

No matter what happens, rest assured that Alleve will be throwing others under the bus as the end of his reign nears.
