Head coach Ed Orgeron didn't sugarcoat LSU's field goal kicking woes while speaking at his weekly radio show Wednesday night.

Orgeron simply told the audience, "We just don't have a field goal kicker."



LSU walk-on kicker Jack Gonsoulin and redshirt freshman Connor Culp are a combined 3-for-7 in field goals this season. Per The Advocate:
quote:

That's the worst mark through seven attempts since 2003. LSU's field goal kicking has excelled over the last decade. Tigers kickers made their first seven attempts in each 2013, 2014 and 2015. The four misses through five games is as many as kicker Colby Delahoussaye missed all of last season (11 of 15).

Gonsoulin has missed kicks of 34, 35 and 40 yards, and Culp missed a 47-yarder. Culp made a 49-yard field goal, and Gonsoulin made 29 and 23-yarders in the season opener.

And who's fault would that be Mr. Ace Recruiter? You can't recruit them, you certain as shite can't coach them at all, and you can't even find a special teams coach to help them up even if you wanted to. This ain't the kickers fault, the coordinator's fault, the fans fault, or God's fault. It's YOUR FAULT ORGERON. Jesus not only is he the worst coach God created, but he takes no accountability for anything. I'm fricking speechless. Orgeron is completely delusional.

This guy is a cancer. I was holding out hope that he would right the ship but now I just want him gone. This is so wrong that it clearly shows his true colors and his knowledge is coaching. It is called coaching after all.

Knowledge of coaching*** or lack there of.

Ed O is a complete fricking retard, but Gonsulin is hot garbage. How was this guy the #2 kicker in the 2015 class?

I am so pissed, first he called out Brossette "our third string guy" and then he tells our kickers they add no value to this team, what a way to build confidence!!!!

Sometimes you have to hit the jackass w a 2x4 and get his attention before he will listen. No one here knows as to whether conversations have taken place ... This may be a wake up call needed. I agree that you punish in private and praise in public, however, this is a little different as there us no one out there that does not already know our kickers stinks, so I do not see it as "throwing them under the bus" .. just stating a fact. He did not say we lost the game because of ....

I mean wtf... I'd rather see LSU pay CEO buyout right now and just cut losses. I'm dang sorry I ever stood up for this hire. I just don't know why CEO feels like he's just uncensored on every subject concerning LSU. Some of the things that he says he don't have to say and I just don't know why he says them. Frickin tard

Yeah look.....O needs to stfu BUT.....you wanna be on the biggest collegiate stage at the highest level, maybe you need to deal with some heat when you can't even concert chip shots. Al of these missed kicks have been in very low pressure situations too.

Wow, Ed. Last I checked we DO have a kicker and he wears #34. No biggie though - he's a redshirt freshman and I doubt he has time to read the Advocate...or TD even. Look for him on the sidelines this Saturday!

First of all, I'm not defending Coach O. Here's a question for all u geniuses. How many of u personally know Coach O? Good chance none of y'all do. Go back and look at the ridiculous stupidity y'all are throwing out towards Coach O without really even knowing the guy as a person. Some of the garbage y'all throwing at Coach O is personal which is pathetic considering we're talking about a game and a coach. Neither are life threatening topics. The pussies that are pissed at our coach calling out players who are quite simply stinking it up on the field must still snuggle up to their participation trophies with pride. Here this "PARTICIPATION TROPHIES ARE FOR PUSSIES"!! If we don't have a good kicker, what is he suppose to say that we are in good shape in the kicking game. If he would of went that route u guys would have called Coach O out for not being honest about our kicking game. He can't win either way with all y'all butt hurt pansies who just can't accept that our football coach is from Larose, LA. What a bunch of stereotypical jealous TWATS!! Coach O is not the problem at this moment. U idiots who fill the need to act and talk down towards our coach, team and the top brass at our university on local and national forums are the real problem. What 5 star recruit would want to play for a team with fans like y'all. What's sad most of the jabbing has moved from Coach O's ability to coach to Coachstraight upersonal

Y'all are the problem!! Just STFU and be a fan of your team. U fools are airing everything to the world which doesn't appeal to the top prospects we are trying to get.

That sums it up, my friend! The pussification of America continues. I think Culp gives us a better chance of making a fg. At least he kicks it straight. Gonsoulin is wide left or wide right. As for those calling Coach O an idiot, I bet his bank account is far more than all of theirs put together. Doesn’t sound like an idiot to me!

I'd think kickers success or failure is 75% confidence. Way to go Oeaux.
