Hashing through LSU’s coaching announcements, subsequent recruiting news

Ed Orgeron will be LSU’s football coaching moving forward, Athletic Director Joe Alleva announced Saturday after a week-long whirlwind of rumors linked Jimbo Fisher and Tom Herman to the position.

The Tigers had just fired longtime coach Les Miles on the heels of a wild, heartbreaking loss at a seemingly mediocre Auburn to fall to 2-2 on the year, and the Crimson Tide were No. 1 in the nation and rolling.

But interim coach Ed Orgeron and company have outscored their three opponents since then by a combined 125-38 margin, including a 38-21 defeat two weeks ago of a once highly regarded Ole Miss squad.

In the process, LSU (5-2) has not only re-entered the national polls, but climbed all the way to No. 13 in the College Football Playoff rankings.

Alabama (8-0) still tops every list.
