This past Sunday, Baton Rouge sports reporter Matt Trent sent out a tweet that said Ed Orgeron used to bring girlfriends to practice and let their kids participate in drills, according to a WBRZ source.

Since then, multiple veteran LSU football players have spoken up to completely deny those rumors.

This pisses me off. Either the reporter straight lied or someone in football is starting shite. Like CEO or not, we cannot tolerate this shite.

The media should be ashamed of this story. Fake news is a huge problem in this country and the people that create it have zero liability

I do appreciate the players taking up for their coach.

Me too, but supposedly the majority of the team didn’t respect him because Coach O said good things about Trump and some dumbass players even organized some March or protest to the LSU administration about that. That was probably BS too. I don’t think the players are that politically active. They’re there to play ball, to compete for a position as a starter. They can’t be worrying about that crap, right?

If Kardell Thomas, who I don’t believe has a great relationship with O says it’s bullshite, I believe him.

Why do you believe that he does not have a great relationship with Coach O? Is it simply an assumption you are making that because Thomas has not played, that he has a bad relationship with the head coach or do you have actual information to make you believe that? It does not do anyone any good to make assumptions such as this as they are often incorrect. Potentially injury status has had a lot to do with playing time but we don’t know so i don’t recommend developing a belief without complete information. But hey, free country, believe in untruths if that’s what makes you feel good, I guess.

You need to read up on your history about him and coach O with his SJW tweets before you type a wall of bull shite. It’s well known they don’t have the greatest of relationships.

Mojo has bad reading instincts. I could tell from the wording it sounded like you weren't just saying that emptily.

"Sources" told WBRZ this girlfriend story. Then WBRZ needs to burn these "sources" for lying.

If it is accurate and true WBRZ needs to recant their story and apologize.

The story has been out for a couple of days, but the players all tweeted this on the same day within 1.5 hours of each other. ??

Seems a little sus, but then again there's been zero corroboration that it did happen.

That’s what happens when you have journos with pre-written stories with an “anonymous source”

When I first read it, I thought the veracity in reporting has gone from TMZ-level to Weekly World News.
