Ed Orgeron has entered the Car Wash.

Another day, another LSU Tiger on a watch list. One of the latest to be added is none other than quarterback Danny Etling, who made the Wuerffel Trophy Watch List.

Or as I formally refer to him: The Truth, The Danny Etling.

Regarded as one of the best talents in the SEC, linebacker Arden Key is one player who has been named to more watch lists than several others.

But according to a recent article here by Saturday Down South’s John Crist, LSU fans need to expect the unexpected, as the details of Key’s return are still muddy. Ed Orgeron discussed Key’s rehab and return with media while at the LHSAA Coaches Convention in Baton Rouge on Tuesday. He also discussed the supposed Satellite Camp issue. Former Tiger and current SEC Network analyst Marcus Spears also talked Matt Canada at the event.

As previously mentioned, Coach O, taking time out of his schedule of Burly Dad activities, spent his Wednesday in Bristol, CT on ESPN’s campus for the network’s “Car Wash”.

No, there are not any actual vehicles involved in this event, in case you were wondering. There will, however, be almost 25 interviews Orgeron will be participating in during his business trip.

In fact, he kicked things off last night with Kenny Mayne.

More highlights from the trip:

In other Coach O news, this audio documentary from Saturdays Down South has some interesting background on LSU’s head man. It drags a bit at the end, but those of you that might not have the clearest picture of a real Cajun accent should definitely listen.

Tiger baseball coach Paul Mainieri met with media to discuss LSU’s full 2017-18 signing class. Our man Adam will have more on this later.

Switching over to the hardwood, the Tigers basketball team will open hoops season when they square off against the Michigan Wolverines on Monday, Nov. 20 at the Lahaina Civic Center in Maui.

If you so happen to find yourself in Baton Rouge - or anywhere other than Hawaii - you can catch the game live at 10:30 p.m. on ESPNU.

Meanwhile, y’all think Duke Riley is ready for his first NFL camp? Seems ready.
