Ed Orgeron

Ed Orgeron, a few moments, before his Ole Miss team failed on fourth-and-1 from the 49 against Mississippi State in 2007. It was a decision, in many ways, that cost him his job.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron resorted to coachspeak at his weekly newsconference Monday when asked about facing his former team, Ole Miss, on Saturday in Oxford as the Tigers' leader.

"This game is not about me," Orgeron told reporters Monday. "Again, I will say this to you: I had a tremendous opportunity at Ole Miss. I didn't get it done, but the past is the past. This is way behind us. Me and my family have moved forward. I'm so happy to be an LSU Tiger. This is another an SEC game. It's LSU/Ole Miss. It means a lot, and it has nothing to do with me. This is about the team."

In a one-on-one interview with ESPN's Chris Low, Orgeron took a bit of swipe at the Rebels.

The Ole Miss game is just another game on the schedule, Orgeron told ESPN, "because the truth is the whole time I was there I was wishing I were here."

Orgeron was Ole Miss' head coach from 2005-2007. He was 3-21 in Southeastern Conference games in his three years there and was fired at the end of 2007 season after blowing a 14-point lead against Mississippi State in last game of the season.
