LSU set offensive record in the first game after Les Miles was fired

After LSU fired head coach Les Miles last Sunday, everyone wanted to see how the Tigers — specifically, their offense — would respond against Missouri on Saturday. Well, if one game was any indication, the Tigers should have gotten rid of Miles sooner.

LSU's offense was nothing short of explosive in the Tigers' 42-7 which included 634 yards of total offense. If that sounds like a lot, it is. It actually set the school record for most yards ever for LSU in an SEC game.

Clearly it was good showing for Ed Orgeron in his debut, and he was rewarded in a big way: With a Gatorade bath after the game.

Not to mention a hug from a friendly, local security guard.

We'll see if Coach O can keep things rolling, when the Tigers face Florida next Saturday.
