Only thing is he let the cat out of the bag. McNeese head coach Lance Guidry told Cody Orgeron he was going to be the starter on Monday. Cody called Dad. Dad reported the situation on his LSU coach's show:
McNeese never officially named Cody the starter ahead of the game. James Tabary remained the starting quarterback on the flip card on game day.
No reporter broke the news either. Ed did.
When wrapping up his weekly radio show on Wednesday (Oct. 25), Ed discussed some of his off week plans, saying he was headed to Lake Charles to watch Cody start for McNeese.
“Cody needed to know. We tried to keep it in house as much as we could,” Guidry said. “We told them to tell their parents not to say anything, but [hits table, laughing] Ed Orgeron at his radio show. But you know what, that goes to show you that when you're a daddy, it's different. That's what people don't understand. When it comes to your children, that overrides being a coach."
Guidry added with a laugh: “It's all right if Ed did it."
