A lot of these coaches are MAGA, so this shouldn’t be a surprise to players, but they are a bit more aware of things because of all the social justice that is going on.
LSU players are leaving the program in droves and here is one of the reasons why.
There’s another major factor that played out behind the scenes: Multiple sources told The Advocate that team morale turned south before the season even began, when a large group of players felt Orgeron mishandled a team meeting regarding the team’s player-led march in August amid national protests against police brutality.
Orgeron met up with the players at the president’s office and took part in a meeting that lasted about an hour. He later told reporters he and the players talked “about the things they’re going through and how we can be a part of the solution.”
Privately, the meeting did not come off as productive as described. Orgeron and some players were upset during the meeting, multiple sources said, and while some players said the situation could’ve been handled better by all sides, other players left feeling Orgeron wasn’t supportive.
Orgeron has publicly stated he loves Trump and that he is doing a fantastic job as President.
This has rubbed players the wrong way.
