Ed Orgeron said he "loved" being at USC and was hoping to flip his interim status into the head job. "It was a great fit, I thought, but there was something missing." Now that he's the head man at LSU, the Larose, Louisiana, native seems to have found just what was missing. "When I came home, to get into the stadium and feel like you're connected to 102,000 people, I never felt that anywhere else. I feel connected to everybody. I speak their language. I think it's what Louisiana needed. LSU means so much to the Louisiana people. They want to be connected, they want to be represented. I think that's what I've brought."
