During a recent trip upstairs to visit the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, former LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron had some praise for Notre Dame.
On a visit to his successor’s former workplace, Ed Orgeron (who previously won a national title with the school he was fired from) decided to step out and declare that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are winning a national title would.
Orgeron’s recent visit to the Fighting Irish included quite a bit of praise for Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman. Orgeron apparently thinks so highly of Freeman that the former head coach of the LSU Tigers was willing to go to any lengths to make the bold claim for a national title.
As ESPN’s Heather Dinich writes, Orgeron visited Notre Dame with his sons who are interested in training themselves and he had the opportunity to chat with the Notre Dame players. On that occasion, Orgeron spoke highly of Freeman and his coaching staff, and then talked about a national title.
“I don’t know when it’s going to happen, but with this staff and this team, you’re going to win everything,” Orgeron said, according to Dinich.

Interestingly, there was a time when Freeman was actually a possible candidate to add to Orgeron’s coaching staff. As Tyler Horka points out, Freeman turned it down, ended up at Notre Dame and is now the head coach of a very prominent college football program.
Meanwhile, Orgeron was being paid to leave LSU as the Tigers struggled on the field and dealt with scandals off the field. And now Orgeron is visiting Freeman in the off-season. It’s strange how life unfolds.
