A former TN player was answering questions on Reddit about Lane Kiffin and someone asked about Coach O
What was Ed Orgeron like?
He's a teddy bear. Off the field at least, and when he's in a good mood on the field. Get him pissed off and good bye having a fun time though. We learned not to ask him anything about his time at Ole Miss after a freshman initiation team event (freshman have to do something, a skit, stand up, sing, do a talent in front of the team and the team has to applaud for them to pass) and one kid imitated Orgeron at Ole Miss.
That kid ran for so long the next morning it was terrifying.
Tell me he did the "Colonel Reb is Crying" song... oh man, that would be hilarious. :D
That would be the one. Everyone was dying laughing. Except Coach O in the back of room with the stare of death.
Brave, brave soul, that one.
I could only imagine the silence in the room.
