Scary moment at OSU... he had a seizure at bama too on the sideline before he transferred, how he was allowed to play football with epilepsy is beyond me...

Ed Orgeron confirms LSU did not have A/C in visitor's locker room during Texas game
STAFF REPORT SEP 9, 2019 - 1:11 PM

 

LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron confirmed to media members Monday that the Tigers did not have air conditioning in the locker room Saturday for its game against Texas.

Orgeron said he called Louisiana Tech, Texas' week one opponent, before the game and in anticipation had his team bring extra fans.

According to the official stats, the game-time temperature was 98 degrees. 

 

"First of all, I called Louisiana Tech, and they told us about it," Orgeron said Monday. "So we did some things in the dressing room that were better. It wasn't great, but it was better. At least we had air in there. They didn't have air. We had some blowers in there. I don't think that caused as much as going out there and having to play 93 plays on defense. I think that had a lot to do with it."

Ed Orgeron said #LSU didn't have air conditioning in the Texas visiting locker room. Talked to La Tech and heard about it. LSU brought some blowing fans. Didn't think it had anything to do with the cramps.

They'll do more IVs at halftime to prevent that from happening again.


 
 
 
 

Numerous LSU defensive players dealt with cramps and other injuries during the Tigers' win Saturday. By the end of the game, Longhorns fans could be heard booing injuries, believing the players were faking in an attempt to slow down Texas' play.

LSU players who missed at least part of the game because of injury: safety Grant Delpit (returned), defensive lineman Rashard Lawrence (didn't return), linebacker Michael Divinity (returned), defensive back Kristian Fulton (returned), defensive end Glen Logan (didn't return) and defensive lineman Tyler Shelvin (returned).

"Although it was hot, I thought — I think the humidity was like 23 percent," Orgeron said. "It wasn't like Louisiana. But our guys did cramp up in the second half. We talked about it as a staff that we need to get some IVs, more IVs at halftime. Didn't seem like nobody needed one at that time, but to prevent that, I think that more guys will get IVs at halftime, obviously with the doctor's approval."

The Tigers have entirely too much future NFL talent on the defensive side of the ball to play the way they did in the 2nd half vs Texas. Coach O lit into them today at practice. I love it. The man is proving me wrong which in this case, I'm excited to be wrong.

That's ridiculous.  Talk about a home field advantage.

While watching the replay, I heard the announcers talking about how Texas had spent a lot of money updating their stadium and how state of the art it was. BS

Yeah, I'm sure Tech never said anything to them. I'm no LSU fan, but the NCAA needs to step in before it starts looking as bad as the NFL does right now. You can't let one institution run rampant like that. They need to levy something against them whether a fine or something and tell them if it isn't fixed by the next home game you lose A/C, the second game you forfeit.

According to a spreadsheet provided to ESPN by the Texas athletics department on Thursday, the air conditioning was indeed working in LSU's locker room.

Oh, Texas personnel have confirmed that the locker room was fine, well that settles it.......the temp in there had nothing to do with the A/C and fans that LSU brought in on their own, I'm sure.....
