LSU will host McNeese State at Tiger Stadium in Week 2 of the upcoming football season, which means Ed Orgeron will face off against his son Cody who is the starting quarterback for the Cowboys.

The matchup also brings former LSU assistant coach and current McNeese head coach Frank Wilson back to Tiger Stadium.

On Monday at SEC Media Days, Orgeron talked about the matchup and what it will be like to coach against his own son.
quote:

Q. How far was that McNeese game scheduled? It's kind of odd, a coach faces his son. You're going to be in-game plans that week trying to figure out how to hit him and force turnovers and sack him and whatever. What's that going to be like?

Ed Orgeron: Playing Cody, Cody is a very competitive young man, and playing McNeese State, Frank Wilson is a good friend of mine. Frank is one of the best assistant coaches ever at LSU, a great recruiter. He's family. They're going to give us their best shot. My son is going to give me all I can get. And guess what? I'm going to give him all I can give him, and that's just the way it's going to be.

He's going to expect my best, and I'm going to expect his best. We're going to compete, but we'll shake hands and hug after the game. That's just the way it's going to be.

Cody is mad at his dad for divorcing his mom.

Should be a fun game for them both I wish we'd schedule more in state schools instead of these cupcakes from other states

The real reason he hired Pelini... He just didnt think Pelini would shite the bed so early and end up getting fired
