LSU Coach Scolds Players For Dogpiling Cheez-It Mascot During Purdue Blowout

The LSU Tigers kicked the snot out of Drew Brees and Purdue in Monday’s Cheez-It Citrus Bowl, and the fellas are having one hell of a time!

The Tigers embarrassed the Boilermakers from the word ‘go,’ jumping out to a 14-0 lead before most folks knew the game had even started and taking a 35-0 lead into the half.

The Tigers kept their foot on Purdue’s throat to start the third quarter, tacking on two more scores – one of which came on their version of ‘The Philly Special’ – to take a 49-0 beatdown into the fourth quarter.

After one of the scores – who knows which one because, frankly, I can’t keep up – a couple of the guys decided to go and hang out with the game’s cheesy mascot, and one LSU coach did NOT appreciate how it unfolded.

Incredible stuff here. The mascot (I think there’s an actual human in it, right?) just laying there lifeless with a couple D1 college football players rolling around and having a good time.

Of course, there’s still unfinished business to attend to between the hashes, and this assistant coach made sure they knew it.

“GET UP! GET UP!” followed by a smattering of boos from the LSU faithful is NOT what you expect when you’re up 49-0, but Brian Kelly runs a tight ship in the Bayou.

And hey! Purdue scored to open the fourth quarter to break the shutout. Maybe the guys got a little too cheesy, too soon?
