LSU athletic director Joe Alleva spoke at the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club on Tuesday to provide updates about the athletic program and urged fans to be “patient” with LSU coach Ed Orgeron.

Orgeron, who is in the middle of his first season at LSU as full-time head coach, started slowly with two bad losses to Mississippi State and Troy but has quickly rebounded to put the Tigers back on track.

Alleva commended him for "righting the ship" and began his speech by joking about not having to watch game film with Orgeron this week:



Alleva also provides updates about facility upgrades, the possibility of beer sales in Tiger Stadium along with cheaper football ticket prices in the future.

The worst thing about LSU turning the corner and possibly having a successful ending is that it saves this idiot’s job for another year.

Sell beer and serve gumbo and jambalaya and the fans will come. Eliminate the loud, blaring music during time outs, and people will stay. Pretty simple.

Absolutely! Let the GBFTL play and do away with the piped in crap. Make Death Valley great again!

“Joe Alleva talks about Ed O, et al.” But did the BoS y’all about Alleva? THAT is the question.

considering how much revenue beer sales alone would generate for LSU I am surprised LSU took the "high road" this long. Beer sales should have long been implemented.

Read above... it’s the SEC, NOT LSU dictating those terms.

It’s because the SEC Office sits squarely on the buckle of the Bible Belt.

Reading anything about him gets my blood boiling. Screw Alleva. He should never have been hired in the first place. It’s pathetic. While we will let O play his hand, Alleva has played his on several occasions and failed. LSU is far too good to have this incompetent excuse for an AD be at the controls.

Beer. It's beer. The missing link. Coach O and a Natty depends on beer. A Natty beer.

They can't even figure out how to sell cold bottled water, no way they figure out how to sell beer.

There wasn't any gaps in recruiting. O secured 3 of the states top 10. The lowest we've had in 12 years. Juluke failed to sign a RB and was fired. But that wasn't going to hurt this season it was for next season. Grimes has recruited great but hasn't been able to develop them on the line and because of that we've had some transfer out. The rest have been injuries and discipline so we've led in freshman seeing time.

Sounds almost too good to be true. Usually, when that happens, it's generally BS.

He’ll be gone after football season

He is the worst thing to ever happen to LSU Athletics. He needs to go.
Reply48 months
he needs to go, sorry I cant stand to look at or listen to this dude. What a joke for an AD.

Gives silence, and dodges during embarrassing moments, and times to criticize decision making. Walks to the podium as the team rebounds some. The problem Joe is that you gave O the buyout, you flubbed firing Les, you gave Les the buyout, and in general, you make horrible decisions. Don't take a PR tour now.
