LSU head coach Ed Orgeron announced at a Baton Rouge Luncheon on Monday that senior defensive lineman Christian LaCouture will wear No. 18 for the Tigers in 2017. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

LaCouture joins an impressive list of previous No. 18s for the Tigers:
QB Matt Mauck (2001-03)
FB Jacob Hester (2004-07)
TE Richard Dickson (2008-09)
RB Richard Murphy (2010)
S Brandon Taylor (2011)
DT Bennie Logan (2012)
LB Lamin Barrow (2013)
RB Terrance Magee (2014)
CB Tre'Davious White (2015-16)

“I want to say a huge thank you to Coach O and his coaching staff, Jack Marucci and his athletic training staff, Coach (Tommy) Moffitt and his strength staff, and the previous 18s who had a part in determining this,” LaCouture said. “I cannot thank them enough for believing in me and trusting me with wearing the number 18. I cannot wait to represent that number on and off of the field this season.”

LaCouture served as an honorary assistant defensive line coach last season after tearing a knee ligament in preseason camp. The injury forced him to miss the entire 2016 season, but he was granted a fifth year of eligibility and has decided to return to school.

Doing this in March? O just put a halt to about 30-40 threads on the Rant asking, "who is going to wear 18 this year?"

Great decision by O to reward Christian for his dedication. Great move by Christian to come back and help the team and his draft stock, as well as finish his education. All positive!

Guarantee Godfather that O is smarter than your dumb arse. Takes a real idiot to define a person based on an accent
