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.

That's a hell of a way to coach kids. Tell them they suck.

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.

There was a great kicker at mandeville high that got a bama offer and no LSU offer

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!!!!

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

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.

Kicker, O-Line, Coach...lots of holes on this team.

Let Culp kick. He doesn't have the strongest leg, but everything he kicks is right down the middle. The kid is money from 35yd

That’s what I’m saying,too. Every game kick by Culp is straight with good trajectory. If it’s short, at least it had a chance. He made a 45 yarder earlier this season and was short(but straight) from 47. He kicked a 50 yarder in HS. Let him kick. He might get into a rhythm like Lutz did with the Saints. Better than watching Gonsoulin slice right or hook left right out of the gate.

I saw Jack kick 50+ yarders at Catholic, while being ridiculously accurate. All of a sudden he forgets how to kick?

Happens a lot actually. Can't remember the guys name but LSU recruited and signed a guy (like 10+ years ago) that was unbelievable in HS but when he got to LSU he couldnt make a damn FG to sac his life. Somebody on the Rants got to know who im talking about, I just can't think of his name right now.
