LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron probably regrets the comments he made before the Tigers’ matchup against the UCLA Bruins this past weekend.

In case you missed it (though I’m not sure how you could’ve), Orgeron had an exchange with a fan that ended with Coach O saying “bring your ass on, in your sissy blue shirt”.

I thought the exchange was hilarious. I love how real Orgeron is at all times. He’s never putting on a front for the cameras — he is always genuine.

Unfortunately for Coach O, the Tigers lost the game to UCLA. And as you can imagine, the Bruins had a lot of fun with the “sissy blue shirt” comment.

UCLA and Lane Kiffin troll LSU football

After the game, UCLA, changed their Twitter banner to a blue shirt with the words “Sissy Blue” on it (it’s since been changed).

The Bruins’ recruiting account then put up a video that had Orgeron’s comments intertwined with UCLA players dancing to “Get the Gat”.

You might recall that “Get the Gat” was a song that LSU used often during the 2019 season (the team even did the dance during their visit to the White House).

There’s nothing more you can say in this situation except for “good work UCLA”. They won the game. They have the right to throw some shade at Coach O and the Tigers.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin, who is longtime friends with Orgeron, also got in on the trolling.

Kiffin might be friends with Coach O, but he never passes up an opportunity to make a joke on Twitter.

Lane tweeted a video of Warren Sapp wearing a powder blue Ole Miss shirt with the caption “Love these players, coaches, and Warren even in our sissy blue!”

If LSU beats UCLA on Saturday night, Orgeron’s quip is viewed as nothing more than a great soundbite from one of the most recognizable coaches in the country.

But because the Tigers lost, it’s now a punchline.

Next. Coach O needs to quit blaming coordinators. dark

Sometimes a comment — no matter how good of an idea it seems like at the time — just isn’t worth the grief that’s likely to follow.
